Cohoes City School District Selects DynTek to Deploy Virtual Server Network and Security Solutions

Cohoes City School District Selects DynTek to Deploy Virtual Server Network and Security Solutions

IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- DynTek, Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: DYNK) , a leading provider of professional technology solutions, announced today that Cohoes City School District, located in upstate New York, selected the company to deploy a virtual server infrastructure. In addition, DynTek was also selected to deploy a wireless local area network to aid the District's video surveillance security project.

"Cohoes City School District is the first district in upstate New York to leverage virtualization to create a cost-effective and manageable approach to allocate and scale our technical resources," said Charles Dedrick, Superintendent of Cohoes City School District. "We have found that this single technology project helped us meet multiple District objectives and state mandates, enabling us to stretch budget dollars to their maximum effect. DynTek also helped us create a more secure environment, both physically and digitally, that serves as the platform for communication between faculty, parents and staff."

The District had an aging, multi-platform server infrastructure with limited storage capacity that was difficult to manage and extend. "In order to meet the technology initiatives laid out before us, we needed to find a way to create a more secure, consolidated server environment," said Mark DiPofi, Cohoes City School District's network administrator. In addition, the District was also turning to technology to help enhance physical security by placing video surveillance cameras in hallways and around the school perimeter.

The District chose to partner with DynTek, a national professional technology solution provider with a strong local presence in Albany and throughout the state of New York. "DynTek was able to quickly conduct a thorough needs analysis, both from a business and technical standpoint, and walk us through multiple solution scenarios," said DiPofi.

Working in partnership with the District's IT team, DynTek deployed three key technology components for the District:

-- VMware ESX -- to automate and virtualize the District's server environment -- HP EVA storage area networks, tape back-up and data protection software -- to provide storage capacity, back-up and redundancy -- A wireless virtual local area network - to enable local police to access video footage directly from squad cars

DiPofi stated, "DynTek helped us expedite the evaluation and implementation of this solution and dramatically reduce the risk of deployment. The entire project took less than two weeks, with absolutely no interruption to day-to-day operations."

The District's IT staff now has the freedom to create virtual services out of the physical IT infrastructure, allowing administrators to allocate these virtual resources quickly to optimize the infrastructure in real-time. The result is a server environment with the extensibility to grow on-demand as needs change, while delivering the highest levels of performance, scalability, and availability. The virtual environment also helped combat server sprawl and platform dependencies by enabling the District to go from 15 servers to 7 dual processor HP blade servers.

The deployment of the new wireless VLAN also enabled local police to access the network directly and securely to view video surveillance footage directly from their squad cars. Additionally, the storage area network has provided the capacity the District needed to maintain an archive of its footage.
