Intelligent Cloud-Based Management Architecture

Keeping school in session

Published April 2018


Bainbridge Island School District in Washington state, US, required a stable data center and network services across a multi-building, multicampus school district.

In a Puget Sound island environment where severe storms and power glitches are common, managing a network of 1 data center and 38 data closets became challenging for the resource-limited IT staff. Efficient monitoring of the physical infrastructure was required so that system uptime could be maintained.

Schneider Electric offered both EcoStruxure IT Expert Mobile Insights app and their Service Bureau in order to simplify remote monitoring and alarm management on and off hours.

The result? “Off hours” monitoring and troubleshooting work was reduced to minutes instead of hours, and an enhanced peace of mind for IT and administrative staff knowing that experts were acting as an extra set of eyes and monitoring the data center on a 24/7 basis.
