Stoneware, Inc. Provides Fluid Access to Resources for Florence USD Through Private Cloud Computing

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - January 11, 2010) - Stoneware, Inc., in partnership with Dell, designed and deployed a private cloud computing solution for Florence USD which enabled 1 to 1 Access, improved data security, and reduced management costs by utilizing Stoneware's webNetwork technology.

Florence USD, located in Florence, AZ, is a K-12 school district with approximately 7,000 students and 1,000 staff. Florence identified the need to extend computing beyond the classroom, enabling both students and teachers to access educational resources from anywhere, using any device. Stoneware's webNetwork was able to create a private cloud environment where all educational resources could be securely accessed over the Internet.

"We already knew what we needed. We just didn't know if the technology existed," said Thomas Howe, System Administrator, Florence USD. "When Dell pointed us to Stoneware, the decision was a no-brainer. The product is so remarkably flexible and so easily customizable. And, to top it off, Stoneware's service, technical support and training have all been phenomenal. Any questions or issues, and they are right on it."

"Schools around the country are realizing that 1 to 1 Computing doesn't end with providing a netbook to a student," states Todd Gibbs, Stoneware VP of Sales. "By creating their own private cloud, and delivering a virtual web desktop to any device, including the Dell Mini netbooks, Florence has created a very effective 1 to 1 Access solution. Regardless of how many devices a school can afford to purchase as part of a 1 to 1 program, Stoneware's private cloud technology will allow them to affordably deliver the access to critical resources that they need to improve their performance.
