    The full solution would imply 2 x Server for Solaris for SRSS 4.1+ and the Sun Rays/SGD, 2 x Server for VMWare ESX/ESXi and hosting all the machines. Providing fault tolerance

    The simple solution (Or Poor Mans VDI) is one server, a decent raid situation and running the SRSS server as a virtual machine on the ESX server, including the backup methods to provide the fault tolerance. Everything can be accomplished on a single server with some tolerance.

    You could do it many ways including Solaris Server + VDI Broker + Windows Terminal Server.

    Suppose the end result would be the ESX Setup, Solaris Setup, SRSS Setup and SGD Setup.

    Sounds like a great idea! Set up a "GeekTube" type add on for EduGeek and we can upload our technical / training videos our self!

    I'd be happy to show off our vSphere solution for our servers with an iSCSI SAN. We've also done a lot with Moodle/Drupal integration with AD and SIMS for our intranet and learning platform.

    I've not forgotten about this!

    It's been a bit mad recently but I will find the time to make a template. If anyone wants to make a start, the plan will be to run them through Expression Encoder and convert to Silverlight with a standard theme. I can definitely recommend Expression Encoder for screen captures!

    Hi There
    Potentially I would be interested in doing something for our License Dashboard Schools Edition.
    Cheers
