    How many computers / resources do you support?

    Morning all,

    I am after a bit of information from you all. I just want to know how many things you support and how many staff you have to do it?

    Currently we have.....

    600 computers
    12 servers
    70 projectors
    35 IWB
    30 printers
    1350 users
    Network
    VLE to maintain.
    We currently have 2 technical staff to look after all of the above. Both of which are term time ONLY.

    What sort of situations are you all in with regards to staffing?

    Thanks

    Jon

    250 Computers soon to be 300, 20 servers soon to be 26+ 35 Projectors, 30 IWB, 20 Printers, VLP (Moodle, Sharepoint) Terminal Services. 2 Technical Staff, Full Time. Could do with a third technician to do the "little" jobs whilst we get on with important tasks.

    150 computers, 9 servers, 20 printers, 36 iwb and projectors, 575 users, all support, build and development work done by me only..

    i think its just a manageable level for me at the moment bearing in mind all the much needed development work ongoing since i joined last year.

    40 pcs and a few more servers over the summer will add to this.

    26 Servers for 300 computers? Hell even 10 Servers for 300 computers - thats some funky Server:Client ratio you got going on there! Either you are running Terminal Servers, or your servers are virtualised and you have a separate server for each small task.

    Anyhow - about 5/600 computers and around 2/300 laptops. Soon to be 6 physical servers (2 VMWare, 1 San, 1 Free VMWare, 2 Terminal Servers) and around 15 virtual servers. More projectors, wifi ap's, IWB and printers than I can possibly count, We are for a 1 in each class room on all but printers.

    1 Network Manager, 1 Senior Tech, 2 Junior Techs.

    It gets worse - adding another 32 this summer and replacing 32 others which means the old ones will probably be cleaned up and put back into circulation for basic web browsing and office functions

    The SMT are currently happy to pay for the additional costs of maintenance which sort of buggers up our objections Next Year we upgrade the wireless kit

    I think you are a bit understaffed - at least one of the staff should be full time and not term time only - and maybe you need a term time lowly tech like me.

    I look after 100 machines, 32 wireless laptops, 15 teachers laptops, 15 IWB etc etc
    Sounds easy except that I do it in 10 hours a week term time only!

    If you do a search you will see that this question has been asked many times - lots of info for you
