Mike Banahan - Cutter Project

Experiences of a large linux deployment in education

Orwell High School in Felixstowe has some 1000 pupils with a range of ages and abilities. In September 2004 the school took a big-bang approach to its provision of ICT services, switching from fat-client Windows PCs to a predominantly thin-client, Linux-based delivery system.

The school now experiences dramatically higher availability levels and estimates its cost savings at approximate GBP 30,000 per year.

This talk outlines the experiences gained from this approach as well as giving a technical overview of the software and architecture employed. An existing case study on the Cutter Project website (www.cutterproject.co.uk) will be expanded upon and the political and cultural lessons learned will be given prominence.
