X-IO Underpins Jesuit College Prep School’s IT Infrastructure for over Five Years

Storage industry innovator X-IO Technologies has announced the unmatched reliability and self-healing capabilities of its X-IO ISE solution with its latest five year customer Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas (JCPS).

JCPS stores and accesses data, including critical academic records and students’ work, from an IT infrastructure including ten physical servers, 20 virtual servers and the X-IO ISE performance storage array. Since its installation five years ago, JCPS has experienced zero downtime and no performance degradation, regardless of capacity utilization.

Peter Billingham, director of technology, Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas, explained: “X-IO underpins our entire IT infrastructure. It provides high performance while remaining reliable and highly easy to use. Thanks to its self-healing capabilities, in the five years since it was installed, I have not had to touch it once.”

The X-IO solution enables students and teachers to quickly access their files at any time and allows data to be backed up from multiple servers in different areas of the school. This ensures its 1,000 students can get the most out of their IT facilities to support their education.

Blair Parkhill, VP of technical marketing at X-IO concluded: “The reliability and ‘no-touch’ guarantee of X-IO’s solutions is critical for the education sector. Not only does it reduce maintenance time and costs, it also frees up the staff to focus on developing their entire technology offering to support the long-term relationship between this exemplary institution and its pupils and alumni.”
