Protection against all 16 potential faults

What are the differences between ordinary servers and Selfix Servers?

There are 16 things that could go wrong with any computer server.

The best, top-of-the-line servers usually offer protection against 2 of these events.   These servers start from around the cost of a Selfix Server and most, cost many times more, depending on the number of workstations, the brand and other factors.

Selfix Servers on the other hand, offer protection against all 16 potential faults that can interrupt your organization.  Even better, when something goes wrong with a Selfix Server all you need to do, to recover, is to follow the step-by-step checklist:
