Help!! urgently looking for comments for governors on a virtualised server environmet
I'm currently having a problem committee of are governors that we need to build in redundancy into our new virtualised server environment. unfortunately this is delaying the project and he's asked me to get statements and recommendations on schools who are running a similar environment and why it is necessary. if anyone can e-mail me a comment in support of this spec and redundancy etc who are using a similar system in their school please e-mail me at. firstname.lastname@example.org
here are some of his comments.
"Please can you do research on similar schools with fairly recent new
installations, that will help confirm what we have specified is required. I
understand their may be some differences.
If you use this spec to go through with them so that we have some bench
"The problem is the quotes at the moment are about fixing a problem, which
is hypothetical and not based on measured capacity or usage."
"I accept the requirement for the virtual server, the backup server is more than the implied £5000, it is £9K with the duplicated licences and also the installation costs will also be higher as there is alot more to do and it is more complicated so it is a third of the quote. Yes I also accept that it should mean that there is never down time due part failure"
the basics that looking at is
HP DL380 G7 Tower Server 2
Hp SAN P4000 1
Windows Enterprise Server 2008 2
APC Smart-UPS 3000 RM 1
8TB NAS Device 1
Project Management Days 2
Installation Days 10
I've attached some notes I've made and feel free to check out the school website at http://baskvill.bham.sch.uk/ for information.
please help me with this as arena to get this project off the ground and running before September.
many many thanks
