Reseller Apex Computers has won a £750,000 IT infrastructure deal with a Wiltshire school.
The VAR is supplying a data and communications IT system for the new £26m site at St John’s School in Marlborough.
The system comprises an HP server architecture and Cisco fibre network that supports a VMware-virtualised environment with Cisco unified communications.
Apex's win comes shortly after the British Educational Suppliers Association predicted that secondary school budgets would shrink by one per cent over the coming 12 months. Primary school budgets are projected to fall off 2.2 per cent.
Barry Worth, St John’s bursar and internal project manager, said: “In working closely with Apex, we have put in place the best ICT systems the school could have hoped for. This will help our students learn in a dynamic environment and will also help us achieve our targets for greater efficiency as well as reducing our costs.”
Stuart Bulley, commercial director at Apex, said: “We are excited to be working with St John’s school to ensure we deliver the very best IT facilities that will help it deliver a first-class learning environment.”
