School District Keeps Learning Moving with VMware Cloud on AWS

Originally posted on

“VMware Cloud on AWS gave us a lot of flexibility when our schools suddenly closed, allowing us to respond much faster to support the sudden increase in remote learning.”

Harry Doctor, Technology Manager, West Windsor-Plainsboro Regional School District

Following school closures and stay-at-home orders being issued across the state of New Jersey due to COVID-19, it was imperative that West Windsor-Plainsboro Regional School District (WW-P) find a way to keep students and faculty engaged and ensure uninterrupted learning. WW-P deployed VMware Cloud on AWS to immediately extend its data center to the public cloud, freeing up local infrastructure to host more VMware Horizon virtual desktops. By doing so, WW-P provided students and faculty a seamless transition to remote learning in order to complete the school year.
