Why do you need a server
Many people in companies still store important data on the computer of the chief accountant or director. Keep in mind that losing them in this case is quite simple. Someone even can accidentally delete the important information. In the case of a server you can configure backup and restrict access for each co-worker individually. Plus, the servers are always connected to uninterrupted power supply and the Internet to avoid problems during operation.
