Technology Savings for K-12 Education

School Technology

Many NJSBA member districts are using VMware today or are in the planning stages for deploying virtualization to reduce costs and improve performance and efficiency. NJSBA and NJEDge.net have partnered to make virtualization technologies more affordable to New Jersey school districts and charter schools.

Improvements in Efficiency and Student Achievement

Schools are facing tighter budgets and an expectation of greater student outcomes. Through the successful integration of new technologies, schools can move beyond traditional classroom models and offer improved access to valuable educational resources and curriculum.

Solutions such as VMware’s Horizon Suite ensure that students and faculty have access to educational resources anywhere and anytime - in the classroom, on a mobile device or from their home or any place where they have Internet access.

Benefits to Schools:

  • Reduce IT costs through server consolidation
  • Leverage cloud software to build a flexible virtual infrastructure
  • Support access to data and applications through a wide variety of devices
  • Create an affordable disaster recovery solution

Save Money and Improve Performance

By consolidating servers and datacenters, and by moving applications to the cloud, your district can achieve short- and long-term savings while improving accessibility to students and staff.

NJSBA can offer VMware solutions to:

  • Reduce data center and capital costs by as much as 60 percent
  • Reduce time spent on routine administrative tasks by about a third
  • Reduce power, cooling and space needs by cutting energy costs for IT infrastructure by up to 60 percent
  • Maximize IT resources
  • Improve access to school applications
  • Extend hardware lifecycle costs without impacting performance

A Cost-Saving Benefit of NJSBA Membership

NJSBA members can expect an average discount of 30 percent (or more) on VMware software and services.
