IT Hardware

Vidyalankar is not merely a technical institute; it is also a tech-savvy one. The Institute is equipped with IT infrastructure which meets industry standards. All possible steps are taken to ensure that it is constantly updated to offer the best of technology to our staff and students. IT infrastructure includes:

  • A virtualized setup with IBM servers providing 32 Cores and 96 GB of RAM, for day to day management of over 7500 students and staff at the Campus.
  • A SONICWALL firewall – a state of the art application level gateway and firewall for the Institutes that allows access to only authorized users based on the access level. This also provides IDs and virus protection to the Campus systems.
  • The Institute enjoys 60 Mbps internet bandwidth from three separate service providers with automatic load balancing to ensure 365 days service availability.
  • Institute has a dedicated laboratory with Apple iMac machines that allows students and faculty to work on Mac OS as well for the projects and creating digital content.

Systems

On this setup, reside the critical systems and services which together act as enablers for IT enhanced management and provide streamlined collaborations among different teams. The setup includes:

An Active Directory Setup, the backbone of all Systems-related operations. This provides centralized authentication to users on any of the campus’ 1200+ Systems and for internet access.

A roaming profile specific to a user gives users the freedom to access their data on any system on the Campus.

Internet and Wi-Fi

Digital revolution has defined the twenty first century and in a few short years, the digital realm has broken free from the static shackles of the desktop and is now never more than an arm’s reach away. The constraints of connectivity have dissolved in recent years, resulting in an ‘always on, always connected’ society.

Wi-Fi provides a consistent, high quality connected experience, regardless of environmental factors. Wi-Fi setup for the entire Institute is controlled from the Data Centre through firewall.

Wi-Fi setup has over 30 access points strategically located across the Campus for access to Internet services. Wi-Fi is authentication driven and is with restrictions as per user level for maximum security.

IT Software

The Institute uses legal software as a practice. VP has set up a dedicated license server for major development related software that is part of the curriculum. Some of the software available is IE3D, Optsim, Genesis, Rational Rose, AutoCAD, MATLAB, SPSS, Oracle, Apple Development Server, etc.

The Institute has tied up with Microsoft Corporation for various Microsoft products and emailing solutions.

Students are provided with ample opportunities to work on open source solutions as well. For this, over 400 machines are on Linux based operating systems (Ubuntu, Fedora, CentOS) so that students are also exposed to development techniques on these Operating Systems platforms.

The Institute has a dedicated laboratory with Apple iMac machines also set up that allows students and faculty to work on Mac OS as well.

VPrint

The Institute has devised and created a state of the art, web-based centralized printing service that allows users to give print jobs from around the globe to “Any Time Print” (ATP) stations at the Institute.

Library and Reading room

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers.” Any technical activity would be incomplete without proper reference work and analysis. VP has developed a central library which is a veritable treasure trove of knowledge, with more than 450 sq. m built up space and is stocked with text and reference books by reputed authors and well-known publishers. The Institute library has an organised collection of technical and management books (20000+ books), journals and e-journals. The library has e-subscriptions with IEEE and J-GATE for engineering and EBSCO and J-GATE for Management and about 67 national and international journals.

Continuous efforts are on to add technical material to strengthen this facility. Considering recent trends, the library also provides material in the electronic form. The library is Wi-Fi enabled and students can utilise desktops and Akash tablets in the library for net surfing. For serious readers, the library provides a very cosy reading room which houses all books for reference work. A coffee kiosk in the library provides invigorating refreshment to library users.
