What Hardware Will I Need to Run My Business on a Mac?
We recommend a dedicated server to run aACE Business Suite. This can range from a Mac Mini to a Mac Pro. The client workstations can be either Mac or Windows.
Backing up Business Data
It goes without saying that all data related to your business is of upmost importance. Losing any of it could be catastrophic. The Apple Time Capsule works well for regular back ups to an external drive.
For extra assurance against accident, theft, or natural disaster, consider off-site backup management and data recovery through a service like CrashPlan.
