The latest version of the world’s leading Small Business IT Solution. Windows server hosting and a small business server installed and set up for you.

Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2011 gives businesses with up to 75 users the ideal, affordable, all-in-one server solution.

As a Microsoft Certified Gold Partner, Zed One can supply it, install it, support it and, if requested, train you in how to get the most from it. We can also provide you with any hardware you need.

This latest version of Windows SBS gives small and medium sized businesses all the networking capabilities of much larger corporations. Employees can share folders, documents, printers and databases to facilitate collaborative working and stop pointless duplication.

It also provides the hosting capability to run your own website and email. Secure remote web access and mobile device support make it simpler for staff to remain in touch, wherever they are.

Centralised monitoring, automatic back-up and network-wide firewall and antivirus protection not only reduce IT administration, but also enhance security and compliance.

The result: a more efficient, productive workforce; and a safer, easier to manage, business.
