Small Business Servers

If you have a small to medium business and need a server, I have had good results with E-Box.

You can easily repurpose a used computer as your office server, firewall, or router instead of paying big licensing fees for MS Small Business Server or Cisco and buying expensive hardware. Contact me for consulting.
