Need a little help getting my point across
During my meeting with my Line Manager, i tried to explain why we needed a new server, but it didnt go too well. He didnt say no, but he still needs convincing.
So I need some help articulating why we need a new server.
The current one is about 4 years old. I dont know the specs off the top of my head but when people have come in to do quotes and whatever they are all usually a little shocked by it.
We currently have about 2 gig left on shared. I think there is about a gig of memory.
We have about 50 client pc's, thats going to be 58 soon. I would also like to get all the Teacher laptops correctly set up with images and what not. Plus we are planning on getting a trolley of laptops in. So the amount of clients is creeping up which worries me.
We also have the very evil Winsuite! Plus it would just be bloody nice to have it set up properly instead of software all over the place!
So what spec would you expect us to have these days? How can i explain that we need to bring us into the 21st Century and a bit of future proofing would be nice! :rolleyes:
Basically he's worried that im doing something i cant cope with and that we are going to have loads of problems from doing it. But im planning on getting someone in from outside to do it, set it up and show train my while they are at it!
The more i think about it, the more the idea is scaring me! It would be the biggest thing i've done! :eek:
