ICT Infrastructure in School Advice!
What are the best practices for Schools?
We are secondary school, about 1400 users and 1000 node network. Netgear Layer 3/2 Switches, H3C Wireless Controller.
We are using HP 8x DL380 G4/G6/G7 and 2x DL320 Storage Servers. One VMware Host running 8 VM Servers. Windows 2008/2003 Servers, Windows 7 Client. Microsoft TMG 2010, SharePoint 2010, Office 365 etc.
Two domain, parent for staff and child for pupil.
What we are thinking to achieve:
3x Host VMware or Hyper-V cluster together fro redundancy and fault tolerance.
2x Storage Server cluster together for VMs and Data
Setup some VLAN to reduce the broadcast and multicast while imaging.
New solution to replace TMG 2010 as it is going to end.
What you can recommend for virtual environment which is most reliable and cost effective?
