Redmond, WA (PRWEB) October 19, 2010
Synology America Corp. today announced a package of tools designed to help educational decision-makers find the best solutions for their storage needs. The education portal will help schools find both successful scenarios, and help to connect them with resellers specializing in education. The success stories demonstrate solutions to various challenges schools face.
“In this difficult economic climate, schools everywhere need to get the most out of their budgets, and Synology aims to show how DiskStations can help schools maximize their existing infrastructure,” said Joshua Wise, a senior product specialist at Synology America. “The portal should quickly show schools how DiskStations can save them time and money.”
Synology is extremely proud to work with educational facilities. DiskStations offer numerous advantages to schools. Among them are:
- Easy integration into existing networks
- No client access licenses (CALs)
- Easy administration of RAID, backups, and ADS integration
There are success stories from schools such as Saratoga High School, The Country School, and eLearning Chinese Studio. These stories demonstrate how different schools with varying environments have used Synology DiskStations to great effect. For example:
1. The Country School demonstrates how they successfully integrated the DiskStation into their backup strategy in a Mac-only network.
2. The eLearning Chinese Studio makes use of access control lists (ACLs) to help teachers pass out and collect assignments, preserving permissions and privacy; and saves money by not needing to retain an IT professional on staff.
Other notable educational successes have also come from:
- Carousel School
- Clemson University
- The Dream Center Academy
- Medical College of Wisconsin
- Seattle Christian Schools
As part of the education pack, Synology has updated the educational white paper to reflect the new software capabilities of DiskStation Manager (DSM) 3.0. The white paper explores challenges faced by educational facilities and offers suggestions to address them.
