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 has partnered with VMware and Carahsoft to make virtualization technologies more affordable to school boards associations across the country.
NJSBA TEC Cooperative Pricing System
The NJSBA TEC program, supported by the New Jersey Department of Education, enables school districts and charter schools to purchase cloud-based services including Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), Desktop as a Service (DaaS), and more—all at deeply discounted rates. Our cooperative pricing system eliminates the need for your district to undergo the competitive bidding process. We’ve done the work for you, so that your schools—and taxpayers—can benefit from these low rates. Learn More
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 Workspace One 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
