As soon as your small business have more than one user it becomes necessary to share files and other resources and data. At first they can establish peer-to-peer network connecting to each other's workstation without a central server. This basic network works while the business is in its infant stages, but as your business starts to grow, it negatively impacts security, reliability, availability, redundancy and productivity.
A server-client environment offers a range of functions and features impossible to achieve in a basic peer-to-peer setup.
Public clouds are not a safe solution. Most consumer-grade solutions like Dropbox or Office 365 were not designed with privacy regulations and security concerns in mind.
