Converged Infrastructure Aces Performance at Mississippi Community College Board

FlashStack proves the value of simplicity.

Summary

The focus of the IT department at the Mississippi Community College Board (MCCB) is entirely about making a better learning atmosphere for students, faculty and staff. The impact of Pure and Cisco’s converged infrastructure solution has been seen most notably in the process of registering students for classes, using the online enrollment tool. After migrating the enrollment tool to FlashStack, MCCB had much faster application performance, which was a benefit to the students and a big relief to IT.

  • Maintenance cost for legacy storage was about to rise 230%.
  • Early-generation converged infrastructure was very complex to manage.
  • Supporting the heavy demands of registration week meant IT work was severely degraded.

Results

Business Transformation

Students have faster, more reliable access to the on-line enrollment application during its most critical period of use. Application developers can roll out new features more quickly. And IT managers can focus primarily on improving the atmosphere for learning instead of being diverted by the need to micro-manage technology.

IT Transformation

  • Higher-performing IT infrastructure gives students and faculty greater flexibility in enrolling for classes during online registration.
  • Sharply reduced demands for system management allow IT staff to focus on strategic initiatives.
  • FlashStack™ delivers more performance, greater storage capacity, and simpler management, with superior TCO.
