3.A.V. Recommended purchase of RAM for donated servers
Scott Isaacson
Rationale

To prepare the servers for implementation in the test cloud environment, additional RAM is needed.  The infrastructure team recommends this purchase, as part of statewide infrastructure in alignment with the statewide educational technology plan.  3 price quotes are attached.  Because pricing and availability of RAM modules fluctuates daily, and modules vary in their compatibility even if they meet specifications, the motion allows testing a sample of RAM and purchasing at the best available price.

Attachments
Recommended Motion

Authorize technical staff to test and purchase 272 server RAM modules at best available pricing, not to exceed $10,000.

3.A.VI. Recommended purchase of LastPass for admin password management
Scott Isaacson
Rationale

The infrastructure team recommends purchase of 10 licenses of LastPass Enterprise to use in securing and sharing access to administrative passwords for the cloud learning environment.  The cost for this will be $24 per license or $240 total.
