Spartanburg County Schools

Spartanburg School District #2 chooses a STORServer Enterprise Backup Appliance for its “ease of use” and time saving features.

Spartanburg School District #2 is a medium-sized school district of 14 schools located in Boiling Springs South Carolina, approximately 240 miles from the Atlantic coast. The IT environment requires the backup of servers at all 14 remote schools as well as the data center servers handling all aspects of district business (finance, transportation, administration, human resources, maintenance, etc.). The center requires about 25GB of data be backed up nightly. The data exists in the form of SQL databases, Oracle databases, text files, images, and video. Spartanburg’s inland location usually protects it from being hit directly from Atlantic hurricanes, though it often receives heavy rains due to passing tropical systems. They also face the same disaster scenarios that most centers face in terms of the potential for fire or inadvertently-deleted or corrupted data.
