After examining its growth projections, data storage and redundancy capabilities, CFISD recognized it was unable to provide the technology and support needed. To prepare its students to become 21stcentury leaders and to unequivocally safeguard its IT and data infrastructure, the district sought a new data center provider.
While CFISD operated two district-owned data centers in its own facilities, it lacked the cooling, power, network links, storage, bandwidth and space to support its future growth. The district decided to migrate and distribute its colocation solutions across three different locations for production, business continuity, disaster recovery, and assurance for highly reliable network services. To maximize the distributed redundancy of a multi-data center platform, the district sought a colocation provider with top-tier facilities, service flexibility and robust connectivity capabilities.
CFISD needed a top-tier data center provider that offered:
- Complete redundancy and 100% uptime Service Level Agreements (SLA)
- A scalable environment to support growth
- Geographic diversity to complement its disaster recovery plan
- Robust interconnectivity between sites
- Exceptional service
