Thomas Telford School Stays Top-of-the-Class With HP Server and Storage Technologies
Thomas Telford School (TTS), the UK's top performing City Technical College (CTC), is a comprehensive school. TTS needed to equip a new state of the art data centre within its latest new Build Project - Madeley Academy and also consolidate its own server estate, introduce virtualisation and improve storage capacity to deliver educational services more efficiently. TTS has employed HP server and storage devices to populate its system racks including HP ProLiant servers, HP StorageWorks Modular Smart Arrays and, for tape backup, an HP StorageWorks MSL 5000 Tape Library. Backing up all the school's teaching and administration data is essential to minimise disruption to the students' lessons, maximising their learning experience. Equally, it protects important online curriculum content, a major revenue-generating stream.
