Are there any must have books on building the IT infrastructure?
New desktops: should it be laptops (with dockingstations), regular desktop machines or thin clients? A special brand? Ubuntu, Windows or?
Servers: We need a server for authentication and usermanagement. We also need an internal mediaserver (we have thousands of big image and videofiles, and the archive grows bigger every year). Finally we would like to have our webserver in house. Which hardware is good? Which setup, software and OS'es have worked the best for you?
Network: We are redoing everything: routers, schwitches, wireless, authentication — even the wiring. Which setup do you think is the best for a small company?
Which backup solutions do you use?
Since we are remaking everything, this list is not exhaustive, so feel free to comment on anything important not on the list."
