"When technology fails, lesson plans can come to a halt; therefore it is very important that our staff can count on technology day in and day out."

Market Opportunity

Ensure uptime, security and IT resiliency with an Enterprise Cloud platform

To educate and support its large and distributed student body, the district employs approximately 1,600 teachers and relies on various academic technology platforms. The most important IT priorities for Dublin City Schools are 100% uptime, resiliency of services, and a secure environment.

The Scenario

Before moving to Expedient Enterprise Cloud, Dublin City Schools hosted all server infrastructure on-premises. Seeking to exit the data center business and wanting to have its IT professionals focused on more strategic academic technology pursuits, the school district began considering hosted options as legacy systems came up for refresh.

The Challenge

"We maintained our own systems internally, including our own data center, servers, and cooling systems, all of which required significant labor hours to maintain,"Hoadley explained. "Our redundancy and reliability were not up to the standards of Dublin City Schools."

The Solution

After a competitive RFP process, Dublin City Schools selected Expedient's proposal which included Expedient Enterprise Cloud (EEC), a turnkey solution for disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS), managed cloud backups, data center connectivity, and Expedient's comprehensive Unified Threat Management solution.
