    it is important to know and follow all cybersecurity rules. This is especially true for companies. I can tell you this, a small company can easily get by with a small office of a few laptops, a router, a network printer, and a few external storage media. Over time, the needs of the company grow along with the client base and staff - the need for a server appears. The equipment in the server room is getting larger and the need for proper storage is becoming more acute. This is not an obvious, but an important detail in the work of a server room - the better the storage is arranged, the more efficient and convenient the system is to maintain.
