Miami-Dade County Public Schools (MDCPS) faced a number of challenges. The current CPU was running at maximum capacity, and new operating systems wouldn't work on the legacy system. The storage system was running out of disk space and more back-up capacity was needed. They also wanted to reduce power consumption and their maintenance costs. They sent out a request for Mainline Information Systems, they recommended the IBM System z9 Business Class (z9 BC) server, the IBM Data Storage 8100 (DS 8100), a storage tape upgrade, and Mainline Professional Services. Mainline perfectly matched their IT requirements with their solution and they now have a system that supports all modern operating systems, has a lower total cost of ownership and will grow as their IT needs expand.
