Case Study: Higher Education — Overbooked College Computer Labs Make The GradeSource: CRU-DataPort
Imagine 3,800 students competing for the use of 350 computers, sprinkled across a vast college campus in eight different labs, and you begin to understand the headaches that Leroy Sterner faced as Manager of User Services at York College. In today's academic halls of higher learning, if you don't have the computer power to compete you're not only going to quickly fall behind in class, you're going to lose students and faculty.
The critical cure for York College lay in finding a fast, reliable, and robust solution that provided relief for an overworked IT department, quickly solved computer melt-downs, and prevented interruptions to the pursuit of higher learning. York decided to put DataPort removable hard drive storage enclosures to the test, and they're quite happy to report five years of consistent grade A results.
