Miami-Dade Public Schools

Optimizing Operations and the Learning Experience for 345,000 Students

The Miami-Dade County Public School District equips schools, students, educators, and parents with best-in-class hardware, software, and applications to provide each student with a world-class education. So, to support mission-critical applications for teachers and learners, and to better serve school administrators with its SAP software suite, the district upgraded to a NetApp flash solution.

Miami-Dade County Public Schools has 345,000 students and more than 40,000 employees across 392 schools. Fast access to applications such as its gradebook application is vital to enter grades, to submit homework assignments, and to view student progress. From teachers and students to parents and volunteers, 700,000 users rely on access to this data 24/7, and the district can’t afford to have the system go down.

The NetApp AFF solution helps the department meet user demands for increased mobility and the ability to access information anywhere, anytime. As soon as a new app is introduced, the department can easily increase storage so that the level of performance across other apps is unaffected. That reliable performance is critical for a school district that wants to keep providing innovative learning technologies as it continues to grow.
