Renaissance Learning

I teach 5th/6th grade math and science, but I love finding fun books to explain science and math concepts using books that keep the students engaged. I can make sure to give them several options on their reading level to choose from and know I am meeting a majority of my students needs because they can listen to other book be read if they so choose. My students have learned so much from science graphic novels!

Scality

The team in charge of implementing Scality has to be full stack in order to guarantee the correct functioning of the entire system. However, you have to think very carefully about the balance between servers and disks, perhaps adopting smaller fully populated servers instead of large semi-populated servers, which would mean that over time our disk updates will not have a fully useful life.

Cons

Renaissance Learning

  • I could never figure it out.
  • Students levels from their STAR test did not translate into the books suggested on myON.
  • The platform is cumbersome and inaccessible for students and teachers.
  • I am fairly tech-savvy, but I could never navigate through and understand how myON worked. Eventually, I gave up and switched to Epic.
  • The book selection was poor. Only the non-fiction books were interesting to my students. None of the popular titles and authors were available.
  • It was a big disappointment and frustration for me and my students.

Scality

  • The overall packaging is not very good. I think it could be more efficient for installation.
  • There are many components in storage servers. This can generally be complex to understand, you have to be patient.

      Scality

      As an organization, it took us a while to understand the shift from a traditional black box SAN to software-defined storage, but now we are much more certain of what this means. The time invested and the resources were not very high, thanks on the one hand to the technical support and on the other to the coherence and good development of the platform.

      I believe this product provides students with faster and easier access to books. This increases their time spent on task reading. myON reader is a product that is great for students and teachers.
      If there are any issues and concerns while using myON, there are many help resources available to offer assistance.
      myON Reader works so well with the rest of the Renaissance Platform. This consistency is great for everyone!

      I have seen Scality in the office meeting with our VP and get the feeling that they are here to support us.

      Scality

      Due to the nature of our business we require extensive encryption and availability for sensitive customer data. The erasure encoding that Scality provides gives us the assurance that documents are rest are never in a state of being downloaded or available to a casual data thief. This is something that can be found with other vendors but at a fraction of the same cost. Having this kind of performance, availability and redundancy at the cost that Scality provides has made a large difference to our organization.

      Return on Investment

      Renaissance Learning

      • Students continued to read on their level and were motivated by all of the books being an AR book with a quiz and points to earn.

      Scality

      • Keeping sensitive customer data secure is a must for our organization and Scality has great features to make this happen.
      • We replaced a single SAN with a Scality ring and found performance to improve as we store more and more customer data.
      • Being able to lose various portions of our Scality ring and allow it to continue to service customers while maintaining high performance has been key to our business.
