Katy Independent School District

2014 Bond

Technology Server Infrastructure Growth

Project Description

Server Growth

Background & Justification

Every year the student and staff requirements for storage, file, web and email services grow with the District. Storage capacity is closely related to the amount of new staff and students we acquire each year. In recent years our storage needs have accelerated due to student and staff created content, virtualization, rich media, and database growth. The introduction of Dashboards and data warehousing projects required by the state also has a direct impact. This line item allows us to be responsive to these growing needs by expanding the capabilities of the current server infrastructure as well as purchasing new units. We will be virtualizing the majority of the remaining standalone servers during this bond cycle. This strategy allows us to provide more reliable services and reducing operating costs such as power, AC and maintenance.
