5 Protect Data

6 Problem: Data loss = lost time and lost money. Employees spend hours working on documents (such as reports, financial files, or customer communications) and then accidentally delete or save over the correct version. SBS 2003 R2 Solution: SBS 2003 R2 allows small businesses to: Create a backup strategy that defines what to back up, when to back up, where to store backup info, and how often to perform backups. Back up server data and employee data—My Documents data is redirected from desktops to the server where it is then included in regular, scheduled backups. Enable employees to retrieve accidentally deleted files and restore previous versions. Message to Prospects: Keep PCs and servers current with the latest software updates, so you have peace of mind. Protect key business information with built-in firewall protection and security-enhanced remote access. Benefit from an operating system your employees can depend on. Prevent data loss with automatic data backup and restore. Save money and time by focusing on your business instead of worrying about technology. * Backup capabilities require scheduling. SBS 2003 does not include virus protection, but it is compatible with third-party anti-virus software. The Value of SBS 2003 R2

7 Scenario Problem: Joe, hoping for a promotion, has spent a lot of time perfecting the huge presentation that he'll deliver in a couple days. As usual, he's saved the original in his My Documents folder. For the last two hours, he's been busy creating a condensed version of a PowerPoint file to use while he's presenting. Finally, he finishes his work and saves his condensed version to the My Documents folder. But wait! He realizes he's saved his changes to the original file instead of to a new file! His huge company presentation is lost! His promotion is as good as gone … The Value of SBS 2003 R2

8 Scenario SBS 2003 R2 Solution: Thankfully, Joe remembers an e-mail that was sent to the company that explains how to retrieve lost files. He finds the e-mail and follows the instructions. He simply: 1. Selects his PowerPoint in My Documents 2. Right-clicks Properties 3. Selects the previous version he wants to restore Done and done! How it works: SBS 2003 R2 was set up to redirect Joe's entire My Documents folder to the company's server, which is backed up on a regular basis. The Volume Shadow Copy feature in SBS 2003 R2 allows Joe to retrieve the previous version quickly and easily. The Value of SBS 2003 R2

15 Scenario Problem: Remember Joe? He's getting very nervous about his presentation. He decides that he needs to show it to someone to get some feedback. He'd like to send it to Jill and Tom, two people he's worked with for many years. He values their opinions. The company is in the middle of upgrading certain people's systems. So Jill and Tom don't have e-mail access at the moment. Joe really needs them to read the presentation. The Value of SBS 2003 R2

16 Scenario Solution: Joe remembers he can use his company's internal website to get both Jill and Tom's comments!

Next, he utilizes the Approve/Reject feature to make the file available to Jill and Tom, who are expecting it. Finally, Joe posts a comment to Jill and Tom and quickly sends an IM to them saying the file is ready for their review. Joe will also receive an immediate alert when changes have been made to the file. Sweet. The Value of SBS 2003 R2
