Distributing new software to a large number of machines or upgrading their OS? We provide a variety of scripting, imaging, and automation services that can make it a breeze. Imagine deploying a new image to your entire campus with just a few mouse clicks! Want to deploy network home directories but just don’t know how? Is Printer management giving you a headache? Let us help!
mac-fusion provides the following system services, tailored specifically to your individual deployment:
OS X Server cross-platform File Services
Serve files to your Macs and your PCs, even access your Directory Services with secure managed user settings. Save countless administrative hours by having all of your settings in one place: on your server. Even better, make sure your students are staying on task by restricting access to only the appropriate tools. Have a student abusing their privileges? Simply take away access, on a user-by-user basis… all in one place.
Network Home Directories
Allow teachers and students to log-in to any campus machine and have all files and settings exactly the same on each. You no longer have to worry about what files were saved where, have them follow you around.
Wireless Network Deployments / Mobile Laptop Carts
Give your laptop users the ability to roam across campus, or setup a mobile cart that you can take room to room, wireless network in tow.
Tired of having print jobs show up at the wrong printer because your students forget to change them? We can help you assign printers to specific machines so that the print job goes where you want it, every time. Or assign printers to your individual students, so all their print jobs go to the same place, they’ll never have to wonder where it was sent.
Image Creation and 2-click Automated Deployment
Let us help you build your base image, and then deploy it campus wide. There is no greater benefit for management than a consistent environment. Got a machine that’s acting up? There’s no sense in troubleshooting annoying software problems… Simply re-image it and you are back to normal.
User Data Import into various software programs.
Don’t you hate how every network software program has it’s own separate user database? Tired of manually entering in user data hundreds of times? Let us help you get your data where you need it, in the format you need it.
