Kentucky Community and Technical College System: College Improves Messaging Availability and Performance With Monitoring Software
Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) offers classroom and online education to over 100,000 students. It was time for KCTCS to refresh its server hardware, and it upgraded to the Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise operating system to use Hyper-V virtualization technology to lower hardware and management costs. KCTCS is using Microsoft System Center data center solutions in conjunction with Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Beta to improve e-mail availability and performance and to simplify e-mail management. KCTCS has reduced problem resolution times by 66 percent and can expand its messaging servers by 50 percent without increasing IT staff.
