preparatory and bilingual day school for students in Grades 7 to 12 in
Calgary, Alberta Canada, leverages Yottabyte software to combine its
storage, compute, and networking needs into one fully integrated
Yottabyte, a software company specializing in virtualization of the data
center, offers a homogenous cloud data center system in order to
streamline cloud computing for businesses and institutions alike. By
running Yottabyte software on-premises, WIC is able to experience high
performing hyperconvergence while reducing overall data center
“After consulting various hypervisors, storage providers, and
hyperconverged vendors, we determined Yottabyte was the only vendor able
to provide the speed, reliability, and affordability requirements we
had,” said Mitch Matula, Chief Technology Officer at WIC. “The ongoing
support has been unparalleled and WIC looks forward to its continued
partnership with Yottabyte.”
WIC is dedicated to enriching their academic program, ensuring rigor and
relevance for today’s learners. With Yottabyte’s virtual data center
software platform, WIC is able to provide its student and business
services to its community. WIC has not incurred any unplanned downtime
since implementing the Yottabyte system.
“The trust and reliability we have with Yottabyte strengthens our
school,” explained Matula. “Yottabyte allows our IT resources to focus
on improving teaching and learning rather than maintaining
infrastructure and services. Students and teachers are encouraged to
innovate with technology in the school knowing their IT infrastructure
can support them in any endeavor.”
Education and research organizations like WIC are constantly looking to
improve services in order to better support their staff and students
alike. As technology becomes more demanding, so do their standards.
Yottabyte looks forward to continuing to assist other organizations like
WIC by providing a comprehensive IT solution that surpasses the current
needs of IT services.
