This solution is one of the first of it's kind dedicated to providing the education market with a secure cloud environment that allows school districts and higher education institutions to affordibly address the ever growing challenge of increased hardware costs, IT expertise/staffing to manage solutions and the ability to protect sensitive data. The solution can save academic institutions and administrations hundreds of thousands of dollars in wasted budget.
Net3 gives academic institutions the ability to extend the boundaries of cloud computing in education by maximizing the available budgets, while creating IT efficiencies, scalability, and compatibility with multiple hardware platforms. The PvDC Education Pod offers a segmented environment that is solely dedicated to education accounts. This translates for academic institutions by ensuring that sensitive data isn't accessible through various measures including an on-premise and off-premise data center set up. This targeted solution lowers infrastructure expenditures, reduces internal hardware, which can increase costs such as maintenance and upkeep and software requirements. Ultimately, the PvDC education pod has had the ability to decrease some client's IT budgets by hundreds of thousands of dollars and has already made one Net3 client a recognized innovative college for it's IT excellence.
"School districts and academic institutions find keeping up with emerging technology a constant struggle, particularly due to budget constraints and security concerns," said Hudson Denney, founding partner of Net3 Technology. "The proliferation of cloud computing within the IT organization is only increasing and the District Administration Leadership Institute reported that 90 percent of K-12 institutions were relying on or implementing cloud technology for the 2012 – 2013 academic year. The burden of creating affordable solutions for the education market, is a growing concern, as the cloud environment isn't something you just plug in or turn on and it all works. We're bringing this PvDC education solution to market to address the growing need."
District CIOs are under increasing pressure to cut costs and keep up with the latest technology trends - implementing a cloud solution can be an easy fix, nevertheless, implementations can be pricey and security is a particular concern, specifically regarding student information. These are challenges shared with CIOs everywhere regardless of whether they are from the education market or a large or small corporation, healthcare industry, financial institutions, and or a state or local government. Net3 partners with companies like Cisco, EMC, HP, Actifio, Tintri, and VMware to develop a customized cloud suite that provides the solutions to these challenges.
