San Juan Unified is a K-12 school district with over 12,000 workstations and 80 central servers which are a blend of Windows and Mac OS X systems. Constant software issues rendered computers unusable on a daily basis. Some students would purposely trash the operating systems and some students would unintentionally invite spyware, malware, worms and other harmful programs into the system. The IT staff would spend countless hours trying to fix corrupted systems.
As soon as Deep Freeze was deployed, the IT staff noticed a difference overnight! Computers could be fixed through a remote console with a simple reboot. Spyware, malware, viruses, adware, and other harmful programs were erased upon reboot. Nothing—not the Google Toolbar, Spybot, Pest Patrol, or even Norton AntiVirus—made a faster difference than Deep Freeze. Re-imaging systems due to software problems is a thing of the past. Now, software issues are fixed with a simple reboot.
