The Benefits of Hyperconvergence in K12

Date of broadcast: Thu, 02/01/18

The next generation of IT infrastructure, hyperconvergence is a framework that combines computing, storage and networking into a single, simplified, automated and easy-to-use system. It’s a perfect fit for school districts, which have limited budgets and few staff members to maintain and operate their IT systems. In fact, hyperconverged IT infrastructures—even in large and complex environments—can be run and managed by users with no certifications or training beyond basic computer skills.

Attend this web seminar for a presentation and discussion about hyperconvergence in K12, how this type of system can benefit a district, and the keys to successful implementation and deployment—which can take just a few minutes. We’ll be joined by the network and security manager at the Iron County Schools in Utah, and an IT expert from Scale Computing.

Topics will include:

    • Defining hyperconvergence, and how it can be used in a district
    • How hyperconvergence can reduce costs and complexity, and improve scalability
    • Keys to successful deployment

Scheduled speakers:

Ken Munford
Network and Security Manager
Iron County School District (Utah)

Craig Theriac
Director of Product Management
Scale Computing

Who will benefit: Administrators interested in education technology or IT infrastructure. Anyone may attend.
