Studentnet's services are based upon robust, widely-used and well-defined network
protocols, such as IPv6, SAML, SIF and LISS, as below:
Backups and Security
Regular backups are performed. Data is mirrored and archived on-site and
off-site. Services are monitored for alerts, performance issues, resource
usage, and 24x7 availability. Traffic is protected via IPv4 and
IPv6-specific firewalls. Commercial-grade service level agreements are
provided. Servers are located in Sydney, providing fast response, in
, one of
Australia's longest-running telehousing and colocation networks.
Managed and Virtual Servers
Studentnet provides a solid foundation for ICT infrastructure. It
offers a range of options from continuity protection for school-based
equipment, to solutions at our professionally-run data centre Semper.Net™
- a modern,
purpose-built environment which has offered hosting and network management
services since 1995, a record of continuous operation that few other
providers can match.
All services guaranteed with commercial-grade SLAs.
Option 1 - Dedicated Server
The maximum in independence, configurability, security and
availability - commission your own dedicated server at our data centre.
Option 1 is a Semper.Net server, dedicated to
your usage only, located in our secure, monitored data centre.
- You have remote access to manage services at all
- You get 24x7 management, monitoring and maintenance
- State-of-the-art security and fire protection
- Redundant backup for power and cooling systems
- Monitored and continually updated firewall
Option 2 - Virtual Server
Would you like to meet your ever-increasing ICT demands without having to
fund expensive equipment upgrades? Try a virtual
Option 2 is to locate your school services on a virtual server
running VMware ESX at the Semper.Net data centre.
Virtual servers provide all of the separate secure functionality of a
computer, but share their powerful physical resources between multiple
operating system environments.
You can choose either a Windows or Linux environment, and we
will be happy to assist your move. After that, we
manage the server; you only need to manage your software and applications.
Option 3 - School Server
School ICT staff are rarely available 24 hours, seven days a week, but the
services of their computers are expected to be. Why not have them
professionally managed all of the time?
Option 3 is to locate school equipment at the
Semper.Net data centre.
The data centre provides all of the state-of-the-art protection and
functionality listed above, but your organisation is responsible for the
physical upgrading, organisation and maintenance of all of your school's
hardware, software and applications.
Option 4 - Continuity Protection
Power and telecomms services are vulnerable to outages
from storms, fires or general misadventure, but we can provide the
backup to minimise disruption if something goes wrong.
Option 4 is to maintain continuity for
school-hosted facilities using Semper.Net.
- We can store (and later deliver) email if your services go
- We can replicate school databases to a failover service, which
automatically supplies data even if school systems are off-line.
- We can provide a secondary domain name service, so if the school's
primary DNS fails, its intranet and website will still be
