Manage a centralised IT service with your own dedicated server.
A network server pulls together everything on your system. These powerful computers provide secure centralised storage for your files, while also giving the administrator control over access levels and software updates.
If your network includes a number of individual computers (and we’re assuming that yours does!), it’s worth looking into installing your own network server. At Nortech IT, we regularly source and set up servers for primary and secondary schools, and colleges.
Why schools need a network server
Keep control of your IT network with a dedicated server
How will a network server benefit your school or college?
- Central file storage. Instead of storing their work on individual PCs and laptops, teachers and support staff will be able to keep their files on a centralised system: better for sharing, and no risk of losing essential documents
- User control. Admin staff, teachers and students all need different access levels. A centralised server makes it easier give different access to files and programmes
- Intranet management. If your school or college has an intranet (an internal information sharing system), the network server will run this for you
- IT management. Software update or a new programme to be installed? The network server lets you manage these changes centrally, making upgrades fast, consistent and simple
Server solutions from Nortech IT
Need a new network server? Speak to the experts at Nortech IT
If you have a large number of computers or a complex network with a range of IT devices, a server will help your system run smoothly. Schools and colleges need their systems to provide a smooth and interrupted service, and a network server helps provide this consistency.
There’s a choice of network servers, and they vary according to what’s demanded of them. For example, a server for a small primary school won’t need as much capacity and processing power as that of a large college with multiple users.
We’ll discuss your school or college’s IT usage with you, and establish from there what power and capacity server you need. If you have many users, you’ll need a server with multiple network connections. All the network servers we install have fast and reliable hard disks, ensuring your essential files are stored securely.
Ongoing support & maintenance for your server
We’ll keep things running smoothly
A well-maintained server should last you at least five years. During its lifetime, it needs to be able to handle everything demanded from it. When you choose a server, think about whether your IT provision will be changing over the next few years. If you plan to introduce more terminals for example, allow for this when you first install your server, so you know it can manage this expansion.
At Nortech IT, we’ll help take care of your hard-working server. We always work to suit you, so you won’t have to be without IT during the school or college day. Talk to us about network server servicing and ongoing support.
