    ICT Systems Manager vacancy - Daventry Northants

    Hi all,

    I'm the current ICT Systems Manager at The Parker E-ACT Academy in Daventry and I'll be leaving towards the end of the summer. The official job / person spec isn't available yet but will be in the next few days. When the job is being advertised properly I'll get all the info on here.

    In the mean time if anyone thinks they might be interested, you can always PM me or ask about it here.

    Hi Modey, A recruitment executive recently told me that schools don't use "industry standard technologies" which I find hard to believe . . . Businesses are currently using MS Server 2008 R2, Hyper-V virtualization, Lync, Windows 7, Office, SharePoint, desktop virtualisation, MDOP, SCCM etc. but I'd be interested to find out what you use. Thanks, Dave

    You listened to a recruitment exec?

    We recently upgraded all our switches to HP Procurve across the board (1GB to every port now). We also upgraded our servers (we have a lot of spare capacity - 8 twin xeon servers, each with 96GB Ram). It's mainly Server 2012 installed on those servers to act as Hyper-V hosts. (we are using Hyper-V version 3 and it's new replication features)

    Most of our old legacy CC3 servers have now been virtualised and we'll be moving over to a vanilla Server 2008 domain / Windows 7 workstations setup over the summer. We also have a new dedicated backup solution we implemented recently which has an 15TB disk array linked to an LTO5 backup drive and uses Data Protection Manager 2012.

    ps Forgot to mention that we use Office365 for all staff and student email (another outdated technology )

    Slight update to this. The dept I run is looking like it will be re-structured and two separate new roles created to replace my old one. Details of this might not be forthcoming for a while yet, but only one role will be advertised for and it will be in the VLE/MIS/ Web development / Social Media vein. More info to follow when I have it ...

    As mentioned in my last post, my old job will not be available now, it's been separated into two new roles. I have just posted a new thread with the job that is now being advertised.
