Dell announced today that Kerrville Independent School District in Texas upgraded its technology infrastructure to Dell Networking. The school was seeking a faster solution than its existing Cisco networking to help meet the increasing computing needs of its teachers and students.
Dell helped Kerrville ISD deploy a virtual desktop environment in its computer labs to maximize teaching and learning whether at school or at home. Kerrville already relies on Dell for its servers, storage, wireless, software, devices and support and wanted to continue to build its technology ecosystem with the same partner to gain efficiency and for IT administrators to have more time to support technology integration into teaching and learning.
“Our goal is to give our students and teachers a flexible, reliable and seamless learning environment so they can concentrate on teaching and learning rather than worrying about whether the technology will work and perform with enough speed,” says Travis Cochrane, Chief Technology Officer, Kerrville ISD. “Dell’s networking technology proved to be a better fit for our schools than Cisco’s solution because it delivers rapid connectivity with the greatest value and gives us the capability to support future growth. With an end-to-end technology portfolio, Dell makes it easy to deploy the technology we need to help advance students’ development of next generation skills.”
Kerrville ISD combined Dell Networking with Dell PowerEdge servers and EqualLogic storage to form the backbone of its state-of-the-art infrastructure. With the increased speed, Kerrville can now support a desktop virtualization environment so its students can access the schools’ learning resources from any of its Dell OptiPlex desktops, Latitude notebooks or Dell Wyse zero clients. Dell simplifies the management of Kerrville’s devices with KACE client systems management software and secures its data with AppAssure. To maximize IT resources, the district will rely on Dell Services to maintain its technology’s performance.
