As the name suggests, networks and servers are an integral part of Netcentral’s business and expertise. We love designing and building servers according to the needs of a school, whether it’s a single server or a complex multi-site system connecting a larger institution.
Our approach has always based around the needs of our customers. Using our advice and expertise we communicate with headteachers or IT department heads in clear terms, helping to come up with solutions that meet both budgetary requirements and the specific needs of your school’s IT infrastructure.
Your school’s servers are the centre of your IT network, and key to internal and external communications. Our packages are always customised and based on the best solution given all factors at play.
From updating servers or telephones systems, or providing site visitors with fast and secure Wi-Fi connectivity, or just simply adding more data points as your school grows, contact Netcentral for a personalised and cost-effective server or network solution for you school today.
We have extensive knowledge of server virtualisation technologies such as Microsoft Hyper-V. Virtual servers enable one server to behave as if it were several, so you’ll be able to run multiple servers from a single physical machine.
Virtual servers all using the same physical hardware eliminates the need for extra technical support, cooling and power, potentially saving your school time and costs. They are an efficient way of utilising existing IT infrastructure, easy to install, and for these reasons are a popular choice for schools.
Server and network support involves installation of maintenance of all telecoms, vital for the day-to-day operations of your school. A growing business will often have to upgrade its telephone systems, and there can be an overwhelming amount of options out there to choose from.
Netcentral’s engineers and advisors will work with your business to find the most cost-effective solution, allowing your school to operate and meet the needs of its pupils as it should.
Different schools need servers for different purposes, for example email, file sharing or data backup.
Prioritising the needs of your school will be how the conversation with Netcentral starts. You’ll often find using cloud software will be a more effective use of resources than physical servers, while virtual servers are another way small you can use resources to their maximum potential.
