I work in a Novell/Netware environment and we are workin to outsource our GW and change it to Outlook. I feel like our network is just a bunch of piece thrown around to do jobs but they don't function as a cohesive unit. I'm working to find the best redesign ideally switching to Active Directory so we can integrate with out web monitoring, email, workstations, firewall, and anitvirus server in a much better fashion.
My initial thoughts were to migrate to a Server2008 Domain Controller (this would manage our AD). For a file server I was thinking linux or some sort of NAS.
We have about 90 users and are planning to expand up to about 175 over the next few years. I am trying to find a scalable, functional solution.
Can I get some input from you IT pros out there? I'm one of those young just out of college guys...I've been working in the tech field for 7ish years...mostly project jobs/internships. I've been at this job for two years now and can see where we need to improve...
