Six Schools in Buchanan County, Iowa Implements Maxta's Hyperconverged Solution to Store and Protect its Data

Maxta announced that six schools in Buchanan County, Iowa have implemented Maxta's hyperconverged solution to store and protect its data. The schools work in an-all Windows environment, including Microsoft SQL database, accounting applications, administrative files and file servers. The storage solution needed to integrate well with multiple Microsoft applications, databases, and file servers. Jesup community schools did not have enough space to store all the data that was being used by both faculty and students. They could not transfer files and the SAN environment was too slow. Finding an affordable alternative was a priority. Bresson looked for solutions that were resilient, user-friendly and could fit into the budget of his not-for-profit school district. The installation of the Maxta solution was quick and easy. Bresson said his previous storage solution took several days to deploy with a lot of back and forth with support. The results of using Maxta literally "made the grade." The Maxta team was able to get Jesup set up in no time and proved much easier to manage. He was impressed with Maxta and noted the following: Maxta turned out to be a highly resilient solution that can handle all the transcripts and grades for the students; The data reduction feature of Maxta software delivered significant capacity savings; The easy and seamless integration with Unitrends as well as all the Windows applications, file servers, and databases; and Easy to install and use with no elaborate staff to maintain the system.
