Arizona Schools Lean on HiveIO for Virtual Infrastructure


Sunnyside Unified School District will use Hive Fabric to enhance its virtual infrastructure ecosystem.

Virtualization platform provider HiveIO Inc. announced that Arizona’s Sunnyside Unified School District has chosen Hive Fabric for its virtual infrastructure ecosystem. The district, which serves over 16,000 students, needed a way to seamlessly scale its infrastructure.

Southern Arizona’s largest school district deployed Hive Fabric on top of its existing hardware. This approach removed the district’s dependance on a multi-vendor, multi-power stack. AI-powered and hyper-converged Hive Fabric provides an easily managed all-in-one stack that can handle high demand for desktop applications.

Enhancing Virtual Infrastructure

Before migrating to Hive Fabric, the district’s IT team used four separate vendors on the traditional three-tier architecture. Each tier included separate boxes from different vendors for compute, network, and storage. The HiveIO option offered a robust, scalable solution with just one point of contact. The company helped the district transition which also freed up valuable IT resources to focus on delivering a better staff and student user experience.

Hive Fabric allowed the district to eliminate the need for multi-vendor stacks, which reduced IT costs. It also enabled them to provide persistent user profiles and streamline management.

“Education has always been a priority for our society, and we have witnessed the increasing demand for technology to keep up with students’ expectations on digital resources,” said Dan Newton, CEO HiveIO. “We are very proud to be able to offer Sunnyside USD a simple, easy-to-manage and cost-effective solution that allows them to provide the ultimate experience to their staff and students while satisfying their performance, scale, and security needs without the vendor and licensing complications.”
