“With Lenovo ThinkAgile MX for Azure Stack HCI, we have achieved our goal of simplification. Our workload hasn’t reduced, but we’re achieving substantially more. Instead of spending time on routine server maintenance, we’re doing more value-added work on security and analytics, for example.”

Phillip Baaten

Senior Technical Services Officer, Catholic Education, Diocese of Wagga Wagga

Keeping things simple with HCI

Catholic Education, Diocese of Wagga Wagga (CEDWW) serves 24 primary schools and five secondary colleges in the Riverina region of New South Wales, Australia. A 1,500-strong team of staff supports a community of around 9,000 students.

CEDWW is committed to providing the best possible Catholic education for its students, educating the whole child so that they can grow academically, spiritually, physically, and emotionally in communities that are focused on welcome, faith, service, and learning.

With 29 schools spread across 80,586 square kilometers, keeping operations running smoothly is a significant challenge for the IT team at CEDWW. Previously, the organization ran primary school operations from its head office in Wagga Wagga, while secondary schools had their own IT infrastructure on site. When the time came to refresh some of the hardware at its head-office data center, CEDWW took the opportunity to radically rethink its IT architecture.
