Hey Maui Startups! I'm checking on interest levels in a regular Startup Meetup.

The official monthly Startup Meetup hosted by This Week in Startups. Discussions concerning entrepreneurship, the technology industry and startup culture hosted by Jason Calacanis and the "This Week In" team. http://www.meetup.com/Startups/6302/

Any interested entrepreneurs hit me back here or at tommy at mauitime dot com

Windows Home Server might do what your looking for.

We are still currently running Windows XP and were only using a simple external hard-drive as a "server" before - simply networking the hard-drive to each of our computers. I have been looking at the Qtask system which looks great and have put in a word to Reichart so we will see what he says in response.

Sounds like Qtask would be best system. I would suggest that as you explore the "back-up"... that you consider a tool like QTask which can improve overall business processes while accomplishing the back up needs.

Windows, Linux, Mac, x-platform? There are lots of solutions.

Thanks everyone for the comments. I am actually looking for more of a "Data Storage" solution that is regularly backed up to an external source and is "mirrored" as well. I will look into the Qtask and Google Aps, but I am essentially looking for something that can hold a bunch of excel, access, Geodatabases, high-resolution aerial imagery, tons of photos, and can all be accessed by only 8 computers through our wireless router.

If you are looking for a CRM solution... ie database to track donors - then you should get 10 free accounts from SalesForce Foundation.... best solution on the market... http://www.salesforcefoundation.org/products/donation

If not Qtask, then you might wish to check out Google App's for your domain. Email, spreadsheets, forms, word processing, scheduling/calendaring, shared contacts, and more. (All backed-up) The free edition is quite good, paid for non-profits is quite affordable.

Sarah, sent you an email. Suggested checking out Qtask.com which can do way more than local network/database, probably more secure and ultimately cheaper. Reichart can chime in if he gets this as he founded it and is the architect. Good luck regardless.

Can anyone offer assistance to a small non-profit to help get a new database system up and running? We are not sure where to start and are still running Windows XP on our computers, which seems to be a deterrent. There are only 8 workstations and our previous "server" was simply an external hard drive that was networked to all the computers. We want something with "mirrors" that will back up automatically... Any thoughts, please email Sarah at mclane@westmauiwatershed.org. Thank you so much and hope you all had a great long weekend!
