Tower Server

Power small business computing with a tower server

Tower servers are one of the most prevalent computing technologies in small businesses today, providing processing power for everything from serving files and databases to system management and corporate networking.

As a leading provider of custom servers, storage solutions, and workstations for more than 25 years, Thinkmate provides a broad selection of tower server solutions designed for a wide range of applications.

The benefits of a tower server

A tower server delivers simple and efficient business value, with the ability to provide processing power for most common business computing functions. Advantages of a tower server include:

  • Cost-efficiency. Towers deliver a lot of processing power for their cost and represent a highly affordable server option for smaller businesses.
  • Easier cooling. Because tower servers feature a fairly low density of components overall, keeping them cool is much easier than maintaining temperature for server rackmount devices.
  • Simple scalability. As the compute needs of an organization increase, IT staff can easily add additional towers to accommodate increased demand.
  • Upgradable. Tower servers can be easily and cost-effectively upgraded with additional features as needed.
  • Customizable. Towers can be configured as general-purpose servers, web servers, communications servers, network servers, and more.
