NISD Delivers Always-On Learning for Every Student

One of Texas' fastest growing school districts, Northwest Independent School District chose Pure Storage® to accommodate growth and provide a stable learning environment.


NISD strives to provide students, parents, and teachers with 24/7 access to its services. The district welcomes thousands of new students a year to its 30+ campuses. With both a growing student body and data center footprint, NISD re-evaluated its storage options and chose Pure. NISD now has simple-to-manage storage, zero downtime for upgrades, and strengthened ransomware protection and data recovery.

NISD uses the latest technologies to deliver 24/7 learning. But as the district grew, inefficient storage became a time and energy drain for system engineers, requiring after-hours maintenance to avoid interrupting student services.  Adding to these concerns was the threat of ransomware to district data and IT system continuity.
