Teaching and Learning
*Kerrville ISD chooses Dell Networking for more affordable, scalable
*Dell provides school with a reliable infrastructure, enabling more time
and resources for teaching and learning
*School saves time, energy consumption and money with Dell desktop
virtualization solution and KACE mobile device management software
ROUND ROCK, Texas -- July 16, 2013
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.
