III. Network Services DesignA. Network ServicesBusiness NeedsThe business will need Active Directory, DHCP, DNS, File and Storage, Remote DesktopService, Print and Document services, User Access Logging, and Application Server.Proposed Network ServicesThese services will be provided by Windows Server 2012 R2, and we will complete all thelicensing through Microsoft.JustificationThe purpose of the Active Directory server will be to provide a standardized and centralizedsystem that will computerize network management of security, disseminated resources, userdata, and permits interoperation with other directories (What is Active directory, n. d.). Next theDHCP server will provide the different host with their Internet Protocol (IP), furthermore it willinput more configuration data such as the default gateway and subnet mask. Since our deviceswill be using TCP/IP network than each host will need a unique unicast IP address which will beprovided by the DHCP. This also can and will reduced network administration work. The DNSserver will provide the name resolution protocol for TCP/IP networks which means that it permitsuser computers to resolve notable,alphanumeric Domain Name System names to the IPaddresses that computers will utilize to communicate with each other. The file and storageservices will be needed because it provides the ability to store information in a categorizedstructure, and data will be saved in files and folders. The system storing and retrieving systemwill have the data presented in the same layout. The remote desktop service supplies thetechnology that enable users to access conference-established desktop, or applications in thedata center from both the Internet and within a corporate network. The print and documentservice will supply the network with the capabilities of being able to centralize printer servicetasks, also the ability to collect scanned data from network scanners and route the documentsto a shared network resource, or email addresses. The feature that help server administratorquantify the number of exclusive client requests of services and roles on a local server will beUser Access Logging.B. Network Security MeasuresBusiness NeedsThe library will need to make sure that the University as a whole is protected, furthermore thatthe library does not pose weak security allowing intruders easy access to the network.Proposed Network Security MeasuresThe library will use McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection Business software. This software willprovide Anti-Malware, Management, Web and Messaging Security, and Data Protection. Therealso will be quarterly training for user so that they understand what to do and not to do on thelibrary’s network.
