    User area quota and AUPs

    Hi guys

    Situation here is we are in BSF and our managed IT service commences in September. We are having a (near enough) complete overhaul of the network, which amongst other things has provided an opportunity to look at things like size of user areas and AUPs.

    What I am after is:

    - What sort of limits do you apply to user (staff and students) areas (obviously some exceptions depending on subjects studied, ie multimedia courses etc)?

    - Do you use 'soft quotas' and/or would you recommend this?

    - An AUP that could be issued to staff and students (probably slightly different ones for each) that would include a section that could be signed, returned and to be held on record.

    - Do you have a policy where you only enable their account once you have received the signed form?

    Any help or contributions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    James

    Y7-Y6 - 1GB
    Y7-Y9 - 5GB
    Y10-Y13 - 10GB
    Staff - 20GB

    They get hard quota's, and that's the limit we stick on and do not expand on them for anyone

  3. Thanks to nephilim from:

    Thanks nephilim. To me that sounds quite a bit, have you got an enormous amount of storage, or perhaps quite a small school?

    We have 1600 students in all (Y7-13) and approx 250 staff.

    That makes sense then. I was thinking about 250-500Mb for 'normal' students and then making exceptions for our 6th formers studying multimedia and IT.
