Dell Scalable End-to-End Solution to Enhance Learning Outcomes Deployed by ... - MarketWatch (press release)

Dell Scalable End-to-End Solution to Enhance Learning Outcomes Deployed by Dell announced that Noel-Baker Community School, a comprehensive secondary school based in Derby, has deployed a new IT infrastructure based on Dell end-to-end solutions.

This has created an environment that enables the school's students to learn in a more engaging way, supports teachers to deliver fresh and innovative methods of teaching, and provides the IT team with the automated infrastructure required to rapidly respond to IT demands.

With the flexible, automated and robust infrastructure now in place, the IT team no longer have to dedicate vast amounts of time to servicing the school and its customers, and now has additional free time to focus on more strategic and higher-level tasks to further benefit the school. The new infrastructure is based on Dell servers, networking, storage, end-user computing devices and Dell KACE systems management appliances, and was created in conjunction with the rebuild of the school's campus. The fully refreshed back-end data centre and devices that teachers and pupils use every day, have created a cutting-edge environment for enhanced learning.
