For students and teachers in North Carolina’s Buncombe County Schools, computer technology plays an integral role in the overall learning experience. By deploying computers with Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors, the district’s small, five-person networking department is streamlining the remote management of its large PC fleet, conserving energy, and enhancing performance for a full range of applications. The Buncombe County Schools IT group is also evaluating Intel® Solid-State Drives (Intel® SSDs) to help increase performance and extend battery life for laptops, boosting both student and teacher productivity.
“Our tests showed that certain computers with Intel SSDs boot in half the time of systems using traditional hard drives,” explained René Shuster, computer technician for Buncombe County Schools. “For students and teachers, SSDs will translate into improved productivity.”
