Teachers have more access than ever before to cutting-edge teaching methods, applications and tools that enhance students’ educational experience and satisfy an array of learning styles. Synetra’s desktop virtualization solutions provide schools with the most flexible, cost-effective way to seamlessly get these tools and applications into the hands of their teachers and students, utilizing a wide range of devices, anytime, anywhere.
The growing trend of students bringing their own laptop or connected device to school is opening new opportunities for administrators to improve each student’s learning experience. And desktop virtualization can help districts take full advantage of these expanded touch points. Virtualization ensures that more students can access the technology through shared or pooled resources, while reducing the time, resources and costs associated with provisioning and managing campus endpoints and providing schools with a more sustainable “eco-friendly” technology platform.
Imagine – all your kindergarten through 12th grade students and teachers being able to access enhanced learning resources and digital content, from lesson plans to homework, on school networks or remotely via the Internet from their personal device – all through a secure virtual desktop that is managed and controlled by your school’s own IT department.
For school IT administrators, virtualization provides the ability to reduce cost and complexity by enabling them to manage all desktops centrally in the datacenter. Applications are installed, upgraded and patched once, then securely delivered over the network to any device.
While the dramatic rise in technology use for K-12 schools has opened new opportunities for education and learning, it has also created a challenge for districts in the form of rapidly increasing energy usage and power costs. One of the most impactful ways to combat this issue – and still allow efficient growth – is through server virtualization. Synetra’s server consolidation solutions can help you further data center greening efforts by increasing the utilization of existing hardware with less physical servers for lower energy, heating and cooling costs.
