Acronis Disk Director Server Success Story — Centennial School District


Overview

Centennial School District, located in suburban Philadelphia, comprises 17 square miles and is home to 10 schools; 6 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, 1 alternative school, and 1 high school. The district currently educates 6400 children in grades K — 12.


Challenges

Centennial School District had a number of mission critical servers that were running out of hard disk space within the server partitions. To ensure that the school district continued to maximize server usage, the IT department began a search for products that could quickly and easily repartition the hard drives of the production servers. A number of products were evaluated in a pilot program. The district selected Acronis Disk Director Server because the product was easy to administer.


Complete Success with Acronis Disk Director Server

After the pilot program was completed, the district purchased 5 licenses of Acronis Disk Director Server 10.0. The product was installed on the 5 servers that were running out of hard disk space. One IT administrator reconfigured each of the 5 servers to increase the partition size in a couple of minutes. As a result of using the product, the servers are no longer at risk of crashing due to hard disk space issues. Moreover, the server reconfiguration was completed quickly, saving IT staff many hours of rebuilding the servers from scratch.

Acronis Disk Director Server saved our department many man hours of labor. We were able to reconfigure our servers to maximize performance in a couple of minutes as opposed to rebuilding the server from scratch. The implementation of the product was a complete success.
