We currently have 5 or so sites and each has its own print server. We are looking to try and create a single print server for all our printers. We currently have a little over 300 printers and at any one time we can have between 1000 and 3000 users logged on and possibly printing.
Will the one printer be sufficient to handle the workload and if so what should the spec be?
Should we have a number of print servers to split the workload?
I think the issue we may face with having more than one is that we have a centralised print management solution which allows us to charge for printing if we have a sort of client agent on the print server. However if we wanted this on additional print servers we would have to pay additional licence costs for this.
