hosted small business server

A managed IT service that small businesses use instead of having an server located on-premises. A hosted small business server is provided by a managed service provider (MSP) on an as-needed basis. Small business employees use a remote desktop connection to access the server. Some small businesses choose a hosted server, as the provider is responsible for all data backup, security, migrating to newer server software versions, maintaining the hardware and also providing technical support to the small business.
