INetU, a leading global provider of hybrid Cloud hosting for business-critical applications, today announced that it is optimizing uptime and performance for Knovation, the leader in advanced personalized learning solutions. Knovation reduces barriers in education through innovative technologies for more than 27 million students and 1 million teachers in schools and districts across the United States. With a mission to transform education from a one-way, one-size-fits-all system to a dynamic, human-centered model that respects the needs of the individual students, parents, teachers and administrators, Knovation depends on INetU to run this education platform.
“We wanted to off-load both hardware and operating system software maintenance functions because we consider them as enablers of business, rather than part of our core business,” said Ashwin Rao, director of enterprise program management, Knovation. “We needed a partner who could take on the maintenance of the infrastructure for us, so we could then focus on our mission to create a paradigm shift in education. We felt that INetU has proven its capability to facilitate our mission above and beyond any hosting provider we’ve worked with in the past.”
Knovation runs a hybrid environment to allow for scalability of resources based on the demand of their application. SaaS companies similar to Knovation also turn to INetU because of its consultative approach as well as the single pane of glass view from the INetU Client Center. Clients can manage and view all aspects of their environment in one portal including monitoring, security tools, and they can also clone and create virtual machines on demand.
“Our INetU team was very methodical about each interaction,” said Rao. “The team provided complete visibility into the project and ensured that our lines of communication were streamlined for optimal efficiency. We also have complete visibility into our environment through the INetU Client Center. The diligent efforts and advanced technology of INetU resulted in the smoothest transition we have ever experienced.”
Coming out of the transition, Knovation has experienced solid performance with no downtime issues. The integrated INetU team continues to work regularly with Knovation to align on projects, collaborate on correcting third-party technical updates and work to help Knovation provide the best user experience possible.
“The issues Knovation was coming up against are ones that are we see frequently,” said Dev Chanchani, CEO and founder, INetU. “Our dedicated team addressed their pain points and worked to mapped out the flexible and reliable Hybrid environment they needed to continue its critical mission in education. We treat Knovation as our partner as we do with all of our clients. It is our goal at INetU to act as an active extension of our clients’ teams so they can leverage their business-critical applications and continue success and growth.”
