A Quantum Leap in Data Storage at Three Higher-Education Institutions

As new technologies emerge and evolve, so do the demands on education. Colleges and universities across the country face growing demands on their IT infrastructure and data storage resources. Acquiring new systems to meet this need is no small feat for today's cash-strapped institutions. Shrinking budgets and strained IT resources make adding to the technology infrastructure a daunting challenge.

To address these obstacles, storage solutions provider NetApp introduced a new equipment donation program in spring 2012, which awarded new systems and storage solutions to more than 100 universities and K-12 schools. Campus Technology spoke with three of the recipient institutions – Brigham Young University, Clackamas Community College and University of South Florida – to learn how they were able to resolve their IT challenges with the help of NetApp.
