Epiphany School of Global Studies Keeps Class in Session with Atlantis HyperScale

The Epiphany School of Global Studies is one of the most successful independent college-preparatory schools in the nation, preparing students in K-12th grades for a world of diverse cultures and people. When student demand for faster computer resources outpaced the school’s IT infrastructure and budget, Epiphany turned to Atlantis Computing®, the leading provider of software-defined storage (SDS).

“Our HyperScale appliance has replaced three servers, which required an enormous amount of energy to power”

In the 10 years since Epiphany first opened in New Bern, NC, the school has experienced enormous growth, beginning with 7th – 11th grade classes and expanding later to a full K-12th grade enrollment. Students and teachers rely on a media center comprising Citrix-based virtual desktop PCs to study and complete class projects, in addition to a network that supports classroom and administrative programs.

As the school’s curriculum evolved, officials began to notice performance wasn’t meeting demand. The students suffered slow response as more logged onto their applications at the same time.
