According to a new press release, “Educational institutions are dealing with an exponential growth in the amount of data they manage, as students and teachers embrace digital content, connected services and sophisticated experimentation that generate vast amounts of information. Educational institutions, from school districts to universities, are discovering that their legacy storage solutions are unable to keep pace with their data growth and management needs. StorageCraft is solving the problem with an innovative solution, StorageCraft for Education, specifically designed to meet the storage demands of educational organizations.”
The release continues, “To survive in today’s digital environment, educational organizations need an efficient and affordable way to expand storage and improve data backup and recovery service levels. Unlike existing scale-up solutions, StorageCraft for Education cost-effectively handles the ever-increasing amounts of data that education organizations are grappling with today. Its built-in scale-out abilities accommodate future data storage requirements which avoids the pitfalls of upfront over-provisioning, and the need for costly and complex forklift upgrades later or the creation of numerous storage islands.”
It adds, “Gone are the days of purchasing excess storage based on a three-to-five-year capacity plan. StorageCraft for Education offers either an HDD-based or all-flash solution. The all-flash solution costs less than $0.50 per effective GB. StorageCraft uniquely enables education institutions to purchase compatible SSDs at retail prices and then scale-out as needed with additional drives or nodes that can be deployed in just minutes. No configuration, no downtime, no application changes. Better still, as the retail price of SSDs continues to decline monthly, education organizations gain important cost savings on future storage purchases.”
