Blue Skies - ideal setup for a primary
I have been giving a lot of thought recently to what would be the ideal ICT set up - current and projected to 5 years on, for a Primary School.
I believe the average Primary school will have somewhere in the region of 200 kids, 9 teachers / 8 classrooms and nowadays something like 3 Admin Staff. My gut feeling is that currently the set up in most will be a lone pedestal curriculum server running Windows 2003 Server. Perhaps a separate admin server for the MIS system Somewhere around 50 PC's running XP Pro - 5 being admin and 10 or so XP Pro notebooks. All served by three up to GB network switches. Backups via Backup Exec to either DAT72 or LTO of some version or other and predominantly Sophos as AV. Hopefully with both servers having UPS attached. Is this a sort of good guess or am I well wide of the mark?
Moving forward I can see that we are being driven toward Server 2008 and Windows 7 perhaps with SAN. Apologies for not listing anything on Open Source as it's virgin territory to me!
Apologies if this is the wrong area of the forum to post this thread.
