Computer Upgrades, thanks to Imagine Campaign!
UCUCC is in the midst of computer upgrades, thanks to the Imagine capital campaign.
There are three phases to the work:
- All wireless access points have been replaced and a new firewall installed. The access points were originally installed in 2013 and had reached the end of their life and serviceability. At the same time we also renegotiated our contract with Comcast and doubled our upload and download speed.
- Workstations for staff have been replaced with new Dell workstations. The workstations were running Windows 7, which would no longer be supported by Microsoft after January 2020. We were able to keep monitors and other peripherals and just replace the computer boxes. This conversion is almost completely done, with the final workstation conversion scheduled for late October. As part of the process we also moved to Office 365, and remote access for all email rather than needed the UCUCC server.
- The UCUCC server is scheduled to be replaced in November. This server is also seven years old and was running out of room and serviceability. The upgrade will increase speed, function, and reliability. It was also running on software that will soon be unsupported.
Thanks to CGTech, Inc. our technical and computer consultants for this project. We have worked with them since 2005 when we moved our operation to University Christian Church during our New Cornerstones remodel.
And thank you to generous members and friends of UCUCC who supported the Imagine Capital Campaign. Your gifts are helping us undergird our ministry and are helping us carry forward what God has in store for us!
