1E and Microsoft: Better together

The Cherokee County School System (CCSS) is located outside of Atlanta, Georgia. With over 40,000 endpoints, the organization was struggling to download content without delays and interruptions.

Challenge

Slow download speeds made sharing content difficult.

Solution

Offering up Windows Servicing Suite (WSS) to the IT Team, CCSD was able to find a solution to this by streamlining Cherokee’s infrastructure. 1E’s Nomad was chosen over other peer-to-peer (P2P) options – including Microsoft’s own – to provide quicker and more secure downloads across the entire infrastructure.

Benefits

Besides ensuring CCSD could manage Windows 10 without disruption, 1E’s WSS also enabled CCSD to automate its upgrade to UEFI across multiple hardware platforms, accessing vital Windows 10 security features.

“We obviously want to take advantage of UEFI, primarily because of the security advantages. It’s a definite benefit, and 1E had a great tool to do that with.” - Matt Roper.

“We experimented with Windows 10 in our labs. It took over a day to upgrade from Windows 7: we had to figure out how in the world we’re going to be able to scale this up to 40,000 devices if we can barely do it with 32.”
