We've developed massively in one year and couldn't have implemented a solution like this without RM Education

Why it works for you

Lower cost of ownership

A typical secondary school could make significant cost savings in hardware and services.

Fewer servers

Instead of adding more and more servers to keep up with storage requirements, you can consolidate all of your data onto one Storage Area Network (SAN); this is much easier for a network manager to manage and gives them a greater level of control.

Easier management

Network managers can reallocate storage space at a moment's notice, giving you the additional space where it is most needed.

Supports future storage needs

You have no need to worry about costly data migration ever again! You’ll have space for the media-rich content of today and tomorrow.

Reliable access to data

A shared storage solution can maximise network availability. Your students and staff won't even notice if there is a problem and lessons will continue uninterrupted.

100% education focused

Using the latest technology from RM Education and Dell you’ll have an extremely well-tested solution, specifically designed with education in mind. Our solutions work on any network, including RM's Community Connect, and are configurable to meet your individual needs.

How it Works

Our recommendation is to use a Dell SAN, a storage solution which offers the resilience you need to ensure your data is safe and secure.

Storage Area Network (SAN)

Fast block level storage to a centralised pool of disks that can be shared from multiple servers. It offers a high level of redundancy, is flexible, highly scalable and particularly suited to virtual environments. 

SANs tend to be the most expensive storage solutions to deploy, but the improvements you gain mean that you can soon get payback on your initial investment.
