Workgroups and domains allow for different methods of organizing resources in a network. Typically workgroups are favored in an environment with only a few networked resources and domains are favored in larger environments. Administration of both approaches requires familiarity with network topology, terminology, and protocols.
Active Directory Management
Group policy objects and the active directory environment allow for centralized management of operating systems, applications, resources, printers, and user settings. GPOs are frequently utilized to simplify the assignment of user rights to network shares, sites, and other resources.
Hardware and Software Sourcing
With the exponential growth in complexity of modern hardware and software systems, sourcing of compatible and cost-effective components often requires a large IT knowledge base. Components introduced to the network must easily integrate with the current operating environment and should be selected to allow for expansion within its life cycle to meet future system demands.
Remote technologies allow workers to access local network resources and remain productive while away from the office. Virtual private networks, DirectAccess, Remote Desktop Services, and RemoteApp solutions should be evaluated and their benefits and limitations scrutinized.
Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware ESX(i) are popular hypervisors allowing for the virtualization of guest operating systems, generally server variants. Virtualization simplifies infrastructure, increases availability, provides failover protection, and reduces long term costs.
Data Storage Solutions
Backup solutions are an absolute necessity in modern data driven SMBs. Backups primarily provide for data recovery in the event of data loss or corruption, in either full disaster recovery modes or partial data recovery modes. A secondary purpose is to allow for data versioning and recovery to specific points-in-time.
Software Asset Management
Software asset management is essential to reduce software-related costs, maximize end-user productivity, and limit business and legal risk associated with software ownership, use, and expiration.
