Data Storage, Abbeyfield School

Abbeyfield School

Providing a centralised, easy to use expandable storage solution

The Brief

Abbeyfield School is a mixed secondary school based in Northampton.  The past few years have seen the school struggle with its data storage, as it had no central server in place and numerous disparate and temporary systems were being used to accommodate vital databases and information portals, as well all manner of academic material. Desktop computers were being used as storage systems and the storage space was rapidly running out.

Key Deliverables

  • Provided cohesion to the current data stored
  • Added security of back-up provisioning with the potential for additional capability in the future
  • Enabled a central pool of easy to use expandable storage solution

The Solution

101 Data Solutions installed an EMC VNX 5300 SAN central storage array, providing a centralised, easy to use expandable storage solution. It integrates all Abbeyfield School’s vital data and provides storage and back up for all of the shared areas and vital databases, all central to critical services provided within the school.

The Result

“Rather than just focussing on the sale of the technology, 101 provided a consultative and knowledgeable approach, visiting us to evaluate our requirements on site, and providing detailed specifications of the options available to us and what the key benefits of each option were.”
