Academic institutions face constant demands from students, teachers, and staff for fast and secure access to computing and educational resources. But with ever-tightening budgets, how do you keep your school optimally and safely connected?
Today, district administrators and IT professionals are compelled to evaluate every technology investment closely and look for solutions that are creative, efficient, and cost-sensitive. That means considering more effective approaches to maintaining your school's servers, storage, and network infrastructure.
This is especially true for K-12 districts that are transitioning to open-portal networks, where students and teachers rely on wide area network servers to access information regarding tuition and fees, class schedules, homework materials, etc.
The net gains of this approach are significant, including reduced administrative overhead, more immediate access to all types of information, and the ability to leverage available IT resources. But as more and more district information is brought online, storage capacity in the educational data centers is forced to grow significantly. Greater emphasis is placed on security and access time.
