California School District Enables Modern
Classrooms with Vertiv™ SmartRow™ Solution

February 27, 2020


Having a network spanning more than 30 learning centers, schools, and academies in three cities made continuity paramount for Monterey Peninsula Unified School District (MPUSD), and this focus on ensuring no interruption to operations, was even more important during construction related to upgrading the district’s virtual machine (VM) environment and core network. Along with deploying in time for the new school year, the district also sought enhanced operations that would maximize its return on investment.

    allotted budget

    life of UPS battery and other critical components
