An organization that provides professional development and technical support to special education K-12 students found its data center infrastructure to be prone to frequent outages and poor performance, which had a negative impact on the availability of student-targeted services. In addition, their environment was not designed to house a data center and did not have dedicated fire suppression.
What challenged the organization's IT manager and the rest of his team was that they would need to install any infrastructure upgrade solution quickly between Friday evening and Monday morning and that the IT space they had was small; only around 130 square feet.
While researching a solution to fit their needs, the organization attended an education technology conference - in search of the right offering. At the conference, the IT manager visited the Emerson Network Power booth, saw a demo of the SmartRow infrastructure, and sat in on a presentation.
The rest is history - a New Data Center in 48 hours!
