Windows Storage Server? (Thecus)

Hello and thank you for the information. Would be very interested in confirmation if WSS supports network installation and data hosting for Quickbooks ProsSeries (EasyAct). Servers from Thecus indicate they run WSS 2012 and look like an ideal platform for very small scale network deployments in which centralized data can be reliably/redundantly served while also providing workstation backup. Unclear from Quickbooks or Microsoft if this falls under NAS and unsupported.

Not an Application Server, but as the name implies 'storage'.

Windows Storage Server is a version of Windows Server that's licensed to OEMs for use in network-attached storage (NAS) appliances. This means that it is intended to 'store data', not act as an application server.
In my opinion it SHOULD NOT be used as a QuickBooks Database Server, as Intuit's requirements clearly specify that the QB Server should not be run on a NAS.

QB Database Server Issue

Thank you so much Murph! We are updating to QB 2015 and currently have the QB Database Server which creates backup nightmares. I want to install the QuickBooks Application and end the problems! Why even have the QB Database Server?

On this issue, I agree with Intuit to stop supporting alternate hosting

I had one manufacturing client who insisted on using NAS with their five license Premier. I made a lot of money fixing their data corruption and issues. Finally they switched to stable Enterprise and got a dedicated server. Which is what they should have done in the first place. And I haven't had to go back. Darn.

Wow! You made this process so clear and do-able...I usually leave the IT work up to the client and their technician, but this really helps me to understand the set up. I am looking forward to the next two articles in the series. Believe me, they will be saved and shared! Thank you so very much!
