  • Constant replacing of old and slow PC’s on a weekly basis
  • Needed to streamline two school labs with heavy student use and traffic
  • Deliver a consistent, faster more agile Windows desktop experience

Justin had a specific technology challenge regarding two of CUSD’s High School library labs. Each lab is comprised of around 70+ workstations with lots of daily use and traffic. The staff has to be agile in several disciplines in order to keep these lab areas “up and running.” Prior to phasing into a Virtualization Desktop Infrastructure, Justin was replacing about 12 computers a week! Granted, CUSD did use refurbished machines from a local partner nonprofit, “Computers for Classrooms,” for related needs. But still, these systems were constantly hammered with use, were slow due to hard drive bottlenecks, and CUSD found it daunting trying to keep them all patched up while maintaining a consistent experience for each and every user, day in and day out. It wasn’t working. Their goal was to reimagine how they would deliver a consistent, faster, more agile Windows desktop experience to everyone. It was time to think about virtualization.

The Solution
10ZiG PCoIP Solutions

A Partnership Defined by Success

The collaboration between TARC and 10ZiG stands as a testament to 10ZiG’s proficiency in delivering tailored solutions that address real-world challenges. Their comprehensive approach, which combines cutting-edge hardware with robust software support, ensured that TARC could navigate the challenges of the pandemic with confidence.

“After switching to 10ZiG, our librarians are much happier, the students are much happier, and we spend way less time replacing, updating, and maintaining Windows machines. 10ZiG Client devices are quiet, they are low-power, and they are extremely easy to manage. So far, our experience with 10ZiG has been amazing! We rarely have a device fail, and if one does fail, the return process has been painless. If we feel like trying out a new device, all I have to do is send an email and the device arrives a few days later for testing; it’s great! We definitely recommend 10ZiG to other companies for all these reasons, plus 10ZiG is just easy and fun to work with…”
