This release of Scorelink comes as a standalone VM (virtual machine) that can be deployed on your school network and hosted by you. This puts control of the system in your IT team’s hands, so the system can work seamlessly within your existing IT infrastructure. For many schools this may appear to be the “best solution”, but if your network isn’t correctly configured it can leave you vulnerable. Support can take longer because we don’t have easy access to the Server installation.
Best for: highly skilled IT teams, large or cutting-edge infrastructure
Worst for: IT teams without an advanced knowledge of virtual infrastructure and networking, older or lower-spec hardware that may not support the VM

- Microsoft Hyper-V

- 2GB available RAM (min) / 4GB RAM (recommended)

The cloud version of Scorelink lives in the ether on our secured servers in an Australian datacenter and is hosted by us. This means that we take care of all the tricky things like backups, redundancy, security, configuration and everything in between. The only minimum requirements for you are that you are using a modern web browser and have access to the internet: we take care of the rest. It also means that you can access Scorelink anywhere – the freedom is yours!
Best for: access anywhere, no on-site IT infrastructure required
Worst for: people who fear the cloud
- Internet access on the device being used to access Scorelink
