Dáil Eireann Debate
608. Deputy Damien English asked the Minister for Education and Science the number of computer servers that are owned or leased by his Department and each State agency under the aegis of his Department; and the amount of capacity on each server. [46708/08]
Minister for Education and Science (Deputy Batt O’Keeffe): In total my Department has 124 servers supporting a range of systems and services and including production, development, test, and training environments. They are categorised in the following table based on storage capacity. The memory and processor capacity varies depending on the function of the server. My Department owns all of the servers.
With regard to the agencies under the aegis of my Department, each agency is responsible for its own Information Technology services and the number of servers in each agency is therefore a matter for the individual agency. This information is not monitored or collated centrally.
