Yottabyte Software Powers IT Infrastructure for West Island College

May 21, 2019

BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 21, 2019--

Yottabyte LLC announced today that West Island College (WIC), a leading co-educational, university preparatory and bilingual day school for students in Grades 7 to 12 in Calgary, Alberta Canada, leverages Yottabyte software to combine its storage, compute, and networking needs into one fully integrated operating system.

Yottabyte, a software company specializing in virtualization of the data center, offers a homogenous cloud data center system in order to streamline cloud computing for businesses and institutions alike. By running Yottabyte software on-premises, WIC is able to experience high performing hyperconvergence while reducing overall data center complexity.

“After consulting various hypervisors, storage providers, and hyperconverged vendors, we determined Yottabyte was the only vendor able to provide the speed, reliability, and affordability requirements we had,” said Mitch Matula, Chief Technology Officer at WIC. “The ongoing support has been unparalleled and WIC looks forward to its continued partnership with Yottabyte.”

WIC is dedicated to enriching their academic program, ensuring rigor and relevance for today’s learners. With Yottabyte’s virtual data center software platform, WIC is able to provide its student and business services to its community. WIC has not incurred any unplanned downtime since implementing the Yottabyte system.

“The trust and reliability we have with Yottabyte strengthens our school,” explained Matula. “Yottabyte allows our IT resources to focus on improving teaching and learning rather than maintaining infrastructure and services. Students and teachers are encouraged to innovate with technology in the school knowing their IT infrastructure can support them in any endeavor.”

Education and research organizations like WIC are constantly looking to improve services in order to better support their staff and students alike. As technology becomes more demanding, so do their standards. Yottabyte looks forward to continuing to assist other organizations like WIC by providing a comprehensive IT solution that surpasses the current needs of IT services.
