‘Data Center In A Box’ for schools launched

Cannon Technologies has developed the Mini Data Center range, a complete self-contained data center in a single enclosed rack or cabinet that can be sited in a corridor, closet or outside.

The new range contains self-management systems alongside cooling equipment, uninterruptable power supplies, wide area network (internet) access, router, firewalls, content filtering and control, Ethernet switches, storage, servers and Wi-Fi access controllers. All of this is integrated with e-learning management software (LMS) - like Moodle and Blackboard - together with all of the back-office systems, student security functions like campus-wide access control and CCTV recording for the school or college.
