When’s the last time your IT team performed a technology health check? One in three districts will have one or more days of network downtime every year, according to a recent Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) study. Your school can’t afford one minute of downtime let alone a full day.

Don’t let summer slip away without doing a health check on the core of your technology environment. Your technology team should be doing routine assessments and upgrades of your network to make sure it follows best practices for large networks, including

  • converting to cloud-based backups;
  • upgrading and testing remote monitoring systems;
  • scheduling automated server updates; and
  • replacing network switches.

In an age when everything from information storage to software to communication is virtual, your school must be able to depend on its network. If you follow these and other critical steps, you’ll be able to do just that. Contact Vartek or call  800-854-2524 for more details on how to keep your network strong.
