Michael RobinsonITT-121March 1, 2020Corporate Proposal FinalRecommended Server and Workstation Requirements:The primary DSN server will be running windows 19 server software. The roles of that server will be focused on managing the AD and will be in the IT and clerical department. This will allow for easy access in times of failure or maintenance. In addition, the mail, file, and database
servers will run windows 2019 server software. These too will be stationed in the IT department alongside the main server, which should be in the middle of the building which will allow for easier temperature control or potential water damage and provide easy access for troubleshootingor maintenance. The role of the mail server is for all employee emails. The file server will maintain and store company data files. The database server will store and maintain all company databases that we will create and will need to use on a regular basis. Storage Options:The main server which will be located within the IT department will be used for the storage of all confidential information like employee emails and will allow the company to bettertrack business records and company transactions.

By doing this it will allow for the engineering department to gain quick and easy access to the server to look up any needed information for current, past, and future projects that are needed. For the remaining two servers, Canyon Aeronautics will require a DCHP server as well as a DNS server, or a directory server that will act as a telephone book. As for the operating software that these servers will be running, that will be Windows Server 2016 due to the simplicity and cost effectiveness of the software.Directory Services Analysis, Windows and Linux Integration Analysis including AD/LDAP:When a company is running both Windows and Linux, the company can reduce their upfront costs of OS (Operating Systems) as well as software licensing. Linux distributions rarely require licensing fees, so that does not limit the number of instances a company can run that OS (Lockhart, 2015). By utilizing this method, the company will be capable of affecting its bottom line. The most effective use of Linux is data recovery for instances where data was not properly uploaded to the server. Linux is capable of being run from a few different methods including CD and thumb drive. The OS is run solely out of the memory of the device and can retrieve data from any drive where the primary OS has failed. One example of this data recovery is SystemRescueCD. This system is run solely off a CD or thumb drive solely uses the tools to work with the damaged file system. One thing that sets this service aside is the graphical
