Bull NovaScale® gets high grades at Erie, Pennsylvania School System
24, 2006 -
The Erie Pennsylvania School System has ordered a Bull NovaScale 9000 server, FDA disks and a Fibre tape system for their school system applications.
Erie, Pennsylvania is the third largest city in the state of Pennsylvania (U.S.A). The city has 20 schools, which include 4 high schools, 2 middle schools, and 14 elementary schools. The City of Erie School District is known for its pro-active implementation of a 3-year technology plan which had the objectives of using technology to support student achievement, to expand learning opportunities, and to ensure that all students have equal opportunities to learn.
Erie Schools uses a GCOS 8 system for its school system applications, including student scheduling, utility usage, and other administrative applications.
Erie's decision to purchase a NovaScale was based on their desire to implement a competitive hardware and software platform that would improve the efficiency of their IT operations and provide for future needs. According to Doug Krugger, MIS Administrator for Erie Schools, "We decided on the Bull NovaScale because it will enable us to continue to run our core school applications with greater power and lower operating costs, while also allowing us to add an open partition for Microsoft SQL Server in the future to handle the addition of new open applications."
According to Frank Scozzie, Assistant to the Superintendent of Schools, "Redesigning for Success is the motto for the Erie School System. It is a commitment to make every attempt to educate all children, and not a select few. Bull has been a responsive IT Partner for many years, and they fully understand that our goal is to increase student achievement through enhanced programming so that we can help create a better tomorrow for all of our students."
