  • Justification: Eliminate a current single point of failure and provide increased performance, capacity and resilience.
  • Estimated Timescale: 2 Months
  • Estimated Effort: Medium (commision of server and configuration of printer queues will be time consuming rather than complex)
  • Estimated Cost: 3 FTE Days
