Warwickshire LA and SoftGrid Image holder Image holder Image holder Image holder Image holder Image holder Image holder Image holder Image holder Image holder • November 2006 Pilot run until March 2007 • March 2007 licensed SoftGrid for 173 Schools • By September 2007 deployed on 4,487 PCs • For example in The Avon Valley School (1069 pupils aged 11-16 years) “SoftGrid has made our IT environment extremely flexible and saved us significant costs. Once an application has been sequenced it can be accessed by users anywhere in minutes. SoftGrid has also allowed us to have more control over our licensing because we can limit how many users can run an application.” said David Banton, network manager.
