Experience all-flash array with XtremIO
Read Connections Education’s full story
Online classrooms have expanded student horizons and opened new opportunities.
Connections Education, an accredited K–12 virtual learning provider, serves students in 48 countries with classrooms powered by .NET and SQL Server applications.
Students need their virtual courses to be simple, fast, consistent and fluid—the entire learning experience depends upon it.
But without the proper technology, none of this would be possible.
Connections Education has vast amounts of student data that grows at rates we can’t predict. Our answer to that growth—with increasing I/O demands—was always to add hardware. Moving to XtremIO changed everything.
A growing student population increases data and I/O requirements, exceeding projections.
Storage sprawl wasn’t advancing the user experience…or the bottom line.
I/O bottlenecks threw a wrench in response times. Reporting would time out, making real-time reactions impossible.
Creating and maintaining databases for 12 non-production environments was complex and resource intensive.
Connections Education made the decision to transition to the all-flash array architecture of XtremIO.
Connections Education started with two XtremIO X-Bricks in its development environment…
…it was so successful, they quickly moved them into production.
Backup and restore times reduced from hours to minutes
I/O latency decreased from several milliseconds to almost zero
Simplified IT planning from rigid to versatile and scalable
Dev/test environments are as fast and responsive as production
Thanks to XtremIO, we are forecasting our per-terabyte cost to drop significantly. In fact, we actually have not budgeted standard SAN disk growth for the upcoming fiscal year, which is phenomenal.
The company’s whole goal—providing learners with a reliable and consistent online experience—is now versatile and scalable.
