I run a small start-up with 3 people working in 3 workstations (running Windows Vista/7) and a server running Windows Server 2008. Oh, I almost forgot... we also have a linux server (inside a VM hosted in the Windows Server 2008 server).
As we are just a few people with just a few nodes, we use a workgroup network model to avoid the configuration burden of a domain model.
- Is the workgroup model right for us?
- Should the number of users/nodes be the only factor to consider? I guess not. So, what other factos should we consider?
