||Solutions & Results
|A school network wanted to implement a web-based grading and reporting system with their Linux-based network infrastructure.
||Project involved understanding application usage behavior, platform dependencies of critical components in the grading and reporting system, estimation of network bandwith requirements, and design of a suitable platform infrastructure. The project has been completed and the system had been deployed.
|A school had developed a Linux-based network over a 10-year period. Most original servers were still in use. The network administrator left with little systems documentation. A new network administrator was appointed. A third-party network audit reported many alarming vulnerabilities. Administrative staff sought assistance with redesign of the total network and preparation of cost estimates for complete system replacement.
||During a site visit all systems were examined, a hardware and software inventory was taken, and the distributed campus network was reviewed. A new perimeter security system was designed. A new virtualized server infrastructure was designed, and planned for a new distributed messaging and file and print services were agreed to. The new network administrator oversaw installation and migration.
|An educational business suffered loss of Internet connectivity at a very critical time. The company sought a solution to provide redundant Internet services to prevent a repeat of this problem. The remote location of the company limited connectivity choices.
A detailed assessment of bandwidth needs and available ISP options was undertaken. The solution involved partnering with another nearby business to share each other's Internet services over a dedicated fiber-optic link. The new connection has been implemented and has operated successfully for nearly six months. Periodic systems outages are created to validate fail-over operation.
