PaperCut’s Web Print has been deployed across hundreds of education campuses and is an ideal solution for offering print services via student-owned laptops and netbook.
Web Print Scaling
For larger organizations, Web Print can be scaled to remove bottlenecks and improve reliability. Through the use of multiple Web Print servers, Web Print scaling increases throughput and minimizes users’ wait time for print jobs. Using multiple servers also provides resilience against possible network and server outages.
While you can use a single Web Print Server, we recommend a minimum of two. Using only one Web Print server causes a single point of failure and potential bottlenecks. Best practices in server management recommend building redundancy into your network and monitoring the health of your environment.
