Haywood Engineering College is a high school specializing in Engineering. The recent acquisition of 190 netbooks provided students with the opportunity to take the netbooks home so that they could enjoy uninterrupted access to the school’s e-learning portal. This resulted in 'configuration drifts' from the original configuration. Moreover, users made critical changes to the system both intentionally and unintentionally. Diagnosing and repairing an issue would take up to two hours per system.
Haywood Engineering College deployed Deep Freeze on all its netbooks. Deep Freeze protected the netbooks in its pristine state and reversed configuration drifts. Deep Freeze also reversed intentional or unintentional changes with a quick reboot. This saved valuable time and IT resources for the Haywood Engineering College.
