Chippewa Valley Schools

"EMC and VCE won our hearts with Isilon and Vblock Systems. We liked that we could virtualize our recording servers on Vblock Systems and store the surveillance video on Isilon, where it would automatically load balance. The Isilon and Vblock Systems were the ideal choice to solve our performance problems and make a huge management burden go away."
