Networks On Demand believes that HP Proliant Servers provide the best solution for most small business server needs. Until the end of 2013, when Microsoft has indicated it will phase out the product, Windows Small Business Server (SBS) represents a suitable Windows Operating System for such a server. SBS includes Microsoft Exchange enabling your business to be independent and not reliant on ISPs to hold your email.

We would point out however that brand new equipment is not essential. We have supplied superseded surplus / refurbished servers to several clients in the past , and HP now also has a program where it has a HP Renew Program http://www.HP.com/APAC/HPRenew.

As for switches, routers, modems and similar equipment, we have always used and recommend Netgear products, preferably those models with steel cases.
