I need some sound advice. Here is my scenario.
I work for a small (employee wise) company. We currently operate off a Lenova Thinkpad laptop. By operate I mean all our reports, pictures quotes etc are stored on that laptop. About 20gb worth of data.
I would to make that data available to multiple users at multiple locations so any changes made to quotes, can be viewed by all. But I want to make sure only one user can work any given document at one time. I can't have my boss trying to edit a form while I'm already doing so.
We also need to maintain the hierarchy setup that exists on the Thinkpad. But I want the info OFF Thinkpad completely. That laptop is nearing its final days.
Can anyone recommend an online server(cost is not an issue)? I don't think in 2013 I actually need to have physical servers at our office. But I could be wrong?!
Will cloud type services work? I don't want to have pull a document down from cloud, edit it & save it again to the cloud.
I just need some advice.
