SERVERS fit for PURPOSE not for PROFIT

Time after time we see schools being sold servers that are seriously over specified. Before N4L and schools trying to manage on adsl circuits all data was stored locally it made perfect sense. But now with internet speeds often faster than internal networks, more and more data is stored in the cloud. We do not advocate having servers in the cloud (the current costs are too prohibitive).

At NORRCOM we advocate 'fit for purpose' and with this in mind we often find the need for an on-site server is less and less. We have the following options we offer our schools.
