That is the dream. I hope I live to see the day.
..or a nightmare.
Unless your office has real backup power, (+24 hr gas or diesel powered), redundant connectivity, redundant hardware, security monitoring, a fire suppression system, server monitoring, site monitoring, automated backup and remote restore, etc.. all in place, you are probably better off with a quality reliable host or co-lo facility. (Ask me about horror stories -- like a water pipe breaking and the fire department shutting down "everything" for safety reasons.. or cleaning people looking for an outlet to use for a couple hours).. never mind the "normal" drive failure, loss of connectivity and failure to remote reboot, etc.
