We are moving away from our LEA supplied broadband solution so the next step is to replace our ageing cachepilot. Having used the cachepilot for over 5 years now I can safely say its holding us back on creating a fast reliable internet service.
We looked at a number of different options for school wide filtering proxy including:
Equiinet Cache pilot
I've used the latest firmware version
I run Sharepoint 2010 on a hyper-v server which I backup each term.
Now these backup images are starting to get pretty huge at about 50gb so I thought I would look into reducing the footprint on the sharepoint server.
After a bit of googling I came up with these solutions
- Turn off IIS logging
IIS Manager >> sites >> sharepoint >> logging >>
So we are now an academy and I've been looking at the future of the LEA supplied broadband service that we have been using for the last five years. The only advantage I can think of keeping it is that everything is bundled and to be fair it does work. But with the advances in video and multimedia on the internet such as iPlayer and YouTube we are consistently reaching our capacity so its time to look at our options.
I came in the other morning to loads of reports of errors with sharepoint 2010.
After a while I found out the errors were only showing when people tried to add things to the database like files or announcements. On looking at the logs we have this error message
Code:Source: MSSQL$SHAREPOINT CREATE DATABASE or ALTER DATABASE failed because the resulting cumulative database size would
OK, so I heard a great quote on twitter a while back:
"In 5 years time, running an exchange server will be like running your own nuclear power plant to heat your home"
This sounds like a sensible statement to me and since we have an aging Exchange 2003 server I thought I would look into being an early adopter of their "Live@EDU" cloud based email system.
