Central to all educational network activity, the server is the single most important component of the IT infrastructure. As such that makes it potentially the biggest single point of network failure. The good news is that modern servers are increasingly robust and rarely fail. The bad news is that when they do, the cost and time implications can be horrendous. Worse news still, is the fact it is extremely difficult for even the most experienced school IT team to see failure coming.
In an ideal world you would need to carry out a check on your server every 15 minutes or so 24/7/365 to look for warning signals. If you could be subject to hackers or virus attacks you’d want to check those too. Most of all you need to look for the early warning signs and head off disaster before it strikes.
That is why more and more schools and colleges are outsourcing their educational server monitoring to ramsac by using our dedicated ServerGuard provision, in effect, meaning they need never worry about server problems again.
