Through an RFP process, Coppell ISD expressed a need for the modernization of the infrastructure of their primary and secondary datacenters in a number of areas. First was the district’s compute and storage needs; this included protection of business-critical applications, server virtualization, and an upgrade to 200 concurrent Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) sessions. Next, the district desired to modernize the networking between datacenters, moving to a spine and leaf architecture as well as software defined networking. Lastly, the district is implementing a web and application delivery controller solution.
