If Not Now, When?

Has there ever been a better time for small businesses to move their IT center onto a powerful server?
My colleagues at Network Computing have concluded that the answer is "no." Inexpensive 1U and blade servers, increased power and performance for the buck, and stronger SMB service options have brought servers well within the reach of smaller businesses -- and have also strengthened the business case for having one, which is the only case that matters. It may be the perfect time for even tiny businesses to consider that investment in their tech centers.
