Our base version i.e. MSS1C410 is designed for 70 simultaneous users in a computer lab. However, the My sCool Server’s multiple avataars have encouraged users to use it in innovative ways for smart classrooms and tablet based learning models. Thus we have variants to cater to the varying scale and adaptations of digital learning.
MSS1C810 – Intel Celeron, 8 GB DDR3, 1 TB SATA
MSS1P410 – Intel Pentium, 4 GB DDR3, 1 TB SATA
MSS13810 – Intel i3, 8 GB DDR4, 1 TB SATA
Chances are that the hardware which you already have is more than sufficient to serve as client / user terminals. One of the great advantages of the My sCool Server is that you can set up a high quality lab of terminals for your students by leveraging the machines you may already have.
The recommended minimum configuration of the client terminals being – 2 GB RAM, Dual core / current generation Celeron CPU, PXE boot capable LAN port.
Yes, a minimum Gigabit LAN (Cat 5e) is required that connects all the client computers to the MSS appliance via a switch (preferably Gigabit). It is only thereafter that one can boot the client computers using the My sCool Server. Hence, a reliable and high quality local area network is crucial for the proper functioning of a MSS based infrastructure and for experiencing its full benefits.
We also strongly investing in structured networking as compared to unstructured networking. Structured networking is a one time investment which guarantees life-long trouble free functioning. Herein are a few images that will help explain the visible difference between structured and unstructured networking.
No. NComputing devices follow a proprietary protocol to work and they do not match with our minimum specification requirements of 2 GB RAM, dual core / current generation Celeron CPU, PXE boot capable LAN port.
Similarly, almost most thin-client based infrastructure solutions either adhere to proprietary protocols or do not meet the minimum client computer specifications. Hence they cannot be reused in the context of a MSS based infrastructure.
