Save on Software Updates

SW-Logos-ent-quoteDelivering Internet-enabled tools and content in the classroom is a proven component for transforming education. Research across thousands of schools demonstrates that schools employing a 1:1 student-computer ratio – and key implementation factors – outperform other schools. But adding 1 device for every student can mean that your network must support hundreds or even thousands of new devices.

Operating System, anti-virus and application vendors regularly provide updates to improve performance, usability and security. These files are often enormous, swamping your network when simultaneously accessed by thousands of devices.

With many devices configured to update as soon as a new software version is released, this causes ‘peak time’ congestion.

Caching software updates is tricky: Often only part of a file is required and many caches can’t handle partial ‘range requests’.

Intelligent caches overcome this by recognising the file as a software update and downloading the whole file for future requests.

To get the most out of your 1:1, you’ll need a 1:1,000 approach to software updates that only caching can give you: 1 download:1000s of devices!
