Mentone Girls’ Grammar

Mentone Girls’ Grammar School is an independent, single-campus day school for girls, located in the Melbourne suburb of Mentone. Established in 1899, it caters to around 800 students, from three-year-olds in its Early Learning Centre through to those in Year 12. 

CHALLENGES

With its ever-increasing technology requirements managed and supported by a small IT team, the school wanted to future-proof its IT infrastructure. To ensure its systems remained reliable and secure, the school needed to migrate from on-premise servers to a cloud solution during the pandemic.

SOLUTION

  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) via Somerville’s private cloud providing compute and other IT resources on demand.
  • Storage as a Service (STaaS) for online storage on demand
  • Backup as a Service (BaaS) for Office 365 backup and recovery.

BENEFITS  

  • On-demand scalability, without large capital expenditure 
  • Operational reliability
  • Business continuity
  • 24×7 availability of Somerville experts
  • Flexibility and ease of IT management
  • Peace of mind

The greatest security is really having a team of Somerville people available. That has really offloaded pressure to ensure IT services run 24/7 even if I get hit by a bus. I’m able to take leave and not worry about if something goes down.”
