L&T Solutions OS Design 3 Project Summary L&T Solutions is a local company residing in Alabama that provides online homeschool alternative programs with the equipment and software needed for your children’s educational success. We currently support 5 different organizations; which distribute the equipment to about 1000 students in the state of Alabama. We also have a small staff of 15 personnel that process various orders from organizations throughout the school year as well as specialty summer programs. We offer every student their own Chromebook for their educational needs. The organizations staff members also receive their own Windows Laptops to be able to give the students all the information that they need to succeed. L&T solutions provides the organizations their products based on the level of educational needs. Most of the organizations used Mac Operating System for the high schooling curriculum and Windows Operating System for middle school and younger. There are different versions of Windows Server being used in our data center. We alsu use VMWare 6.5 as the core for the virtual servers. All the servers are updated as the software is released from the vendor and has to be compatible with what the students are currently using. L&T Solutions would like to focus on upgrading all the windows computers to the latest Windows 10 operating system. This upgrade will be the best solution to make sure that the children are provided with the most equipped technology as well as provide the best security in their learning environments. We are also discussing the possibility of moving some of the applications to the cloud, which is the most innovative concept at this time in technology. One of the main upgrade focuses that L&T Solutions are concern with is the interactive SmartBoard Notebook. This application is what the students use to process a lot of their work and interact virtually with their teachers. At this time the SmartBoard is compatible with
Windows 10 however, this might change when moving all the information to the cloud. We will develop a plan to include the cost of the upgrade with moving everything to the cloud and keep in mind the upgrades that will come along with this change that hopefully will impact the organizations in a good way. All the laptops have Intel Core 2 Duo to help my staff and the organizational staff with their everyday processes. We should not need any longer than 3 months to incorporate the testing and move with the new upgrades.
