Overview

Cathedral Appointments wanted to install a new Windows Small Business Server.

Solution

Cathedral Appointments are a recruitment agency based in Exeter in the heart of the South West. The agency offers a wide range of job vacancies in many different areas, from legal and professional through to administration, manufacturing, engineering and IT.

Cathedral Appointments have worked with Nexus for many years and following a recent IT strategy review the agency was advised to install a new Microsoft Windows Small Business Server to help run the agency more efficiently and provide a more conclusive disaster recovery plan.

The project included the following key elements:

  • Supply and install a Dell PowerEdge T310 server
  • Install and configure Microsoft Small Business Server 2008 Edition
  • Replace peer-to-peer network with a new domain model
  • Setup remote workers and VPN access
  • Install and configure Exchange for email and calendars
