Barnsley College

Flash storage helps students and saves money for Barnsley College

Barnsley College needed to update its IT storage infrastructure to meet increasing demand from its thousands of users while reducing access and backup times. Fordway recommended Tegile hybrid storage which has enabled network users to log into virtual desktops in 15% of the time it used to take while saving up to £30,000 a year in new storage costs by reducing data volumes through compression and deduplication.
