Located in Miami, Florida, the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science made IT Transformation real with advanced Dell EMC PowerEdge servers and SC Series All-Flash storage.
The wonders of nature are on display at Frost Science. In addition to a 3-level aquarium, the museum features a full-dome planetarium. More than 1 million guests visit each year.
Massive computing power keeps everything running. But it wasn’t always this seamless. Brooks Weisblat, VP Technology, explained his decision to modernize. “You can’t have a state-of-the-art science museum without a complete IT infrastructure to manage all aspects of the museum.”
Weisblat installed Dell EMC PowerEdge servers with Dell EMC SC Series storage. As a result, IT significantly reduced the server footprint, cut electrical costs dramatically and tripled performance speeds.
Now IT deploys servers in minutes instead of days. Data protection is also vital. “Hurricanes are a reality in Miami,” said Weisblat. “Dell EMC makes us feel well prepared about our backup and disaster recovery plans.”
Frost Science modernized their data center with leading technology from Dell EMC. Now they manage everything from IT to facilities, security, ticketing and more with one system. Among the results:
To stay competitive in the digital economy, companies need to transform IT and accelerate innovation. Improve performance, lower costs and see real results with leading hyper-converged, cloud, data storage, servers, open networking and data protection systems from Dell EMC, powered by Intel® Xeon® processors.
