“We're always working to move the district forward with the best technology solutions for the future, and Cohesity is one of them. Modern and reliable, Cohesity - natively integrated with AWS - prevents downtime that takes away from student learning while lowering our data management TCO.”

Bobby LaFleur, Director of Application Support at Spring Independent School District

At a Glance

When modernizing backups and disaster recovery systems became a priority at Houston-area’s Spring Independent School District (ISD), IT staff chose the converged hyperscale Cohesity data management platform, in part due to native Amazon Web Services (AWS) integration.

Challenge

Spring ISD began to strategize about replacing legacy infrastructure with more efficient, best-of-breed technologies. Backups and DR were among the first items to be addressed because the K-12 school district was running a patchwork of point products — from Veeam and Idera software to Dell Compellent and EqualLogic target storage.

Solution

Cohesity provides Spring ISD with a multicloud data platform to back up both its SQL servers and VMware virtual machines (VMs) on-prem and to AWS for DR.

Result

Moving to the converged multicloud Cohesity platform and switching to AWS for DR enabled Spring ISD to eliminate four legacy point products and co-lo maintenance fees while simplifying backups and DR. This reduced the district’s overall data management TCO by approximately 10–15 percent, including more than a half-million dollars in equipment.
