It was a bad day for Steve Bettoni, Tech Support and IT Procurement Officer of Stockport College. Steve is responsible for the infrastructure that supports the college’s enrollment apps, SAP, and Exchange, so you can imagine his level of anxiety on enrollment day—the busiest day for any education institution—when the system crashed and the finance director got involved.
Steve’s team had already spent hours, days, and weeks troubleshooting helpdesk calls related to poor application performance. The team virtualized to get more from legacy systems, but with the increase in I/O traffic, application response time began to suffer.

A bit skeptical, he decided to evaluate the solution—and dropped enrollment processing times from 15 minutes down to 5.
