Why move from a peer-to-peer
network to a server-based network?
A peer-to-peer (P2P) network has offered the
necessary support until now, but it cannot meet your
growing management, connectivity, and security
demands. Today, it’s time for an IT change.
A change that will not only help you manage
information better, while meeting customer

time and money. All of this is possible with the

files, applications, and resources such as printers
and storage. Also, it helps secure critical data and
adapts to changing business needs with confidence.
Understanding a P2P network
Today, interconnected PCs—also known as P2P network—
are used to share files and resources in many small
organizations. It is an easy and cost-effective way to enable
information and resource sharing but may not be adequate
for growing businesses.
Understanding the limitations of a P2P network and realizing the benefits of a server network can help you focus
on running your business rather than worrying about day-to-day operational issues.
