I've been asked what we would need if we were to move site into a new building, what IT equipment would be needed. The building isn't yet constructed so treat it as if we have free reign.
So far i've put down.
Server rack with sufficient power for all appliances such as servers, ups, switches and routers.
Modular Layer3 core switch
Firewall and content filter
Rack mounted servers with storage array RAID6
UPS Power supplies
Air conditioned room
Ethernet cabling to latest spec
Ethernet sockets in computer rooms
Workstation grade PC’s to run CAD/CAM software
Wifi Network – Next generation specification
Printers in computer rooms
Office for IT staff for network monitoring with multidisplay computers.
Backup NAS drive in separate room
Hi-speed internet (fibre)
Fibre backbone for LAN
Gigabit switches for computer rooms with wall mounted cabinets
Is there anything I'm missing?
