City of Glasgow College has implemented NetApp's data management technology as part of a new digitisation strategy.
The college is rolling out the NetsApp management solution throughout its departments to provide students with 24-hour access to learning resources.
As a result of this collaboration, students will be able to access files critical to their learning, and people taking evening classes will be able to download resources from home.
Founded in 1992, California-based NetApp has become one of the world's biggest storage and data management specialists. It is working with the college as part of a new digitisation plan. Alongside this solution, the college is also looking to build multi-purpose classrooms that can be turned into CAD studios.
And with the support of Glasgow City Council and the Scottish Funding Council, it has already invested £228m in building two new campuses.
Nick Thurlow, managing director for the UK and Ireland at NetApp, said data management technology is capable of transforming the educational setting.
"Flexible data management will continue to grow in importance when it comes to driving education forward as tighter budgets and emerging technologies increase the pressure on learning establishments to do more with less," he said.
"We are pleased to have supported the City of Glasgow College as it continues to transform the delivery of college education for students in Scotland."
Craig Dowling, head of infrastructure at the City of Glasgow College, said the solution will help it digitise the college and bring it into the 21st century.
"We have a duty to our students to look at where technology in education is going and make sure we are able to adapt our courses to the studies and technologies of the future," he said.
"Working with NetApp has allowed us to make sure our data management infrastructure is ready for this challenge."
He added: "Having the ability to work closely with NetApp and tap into the technical expertise available in our region has been a huge advantage for us.
"As a result, we are hoping to expand our IT services to other education establishments in the area, offering our datacentre as a service, as well as exploring the potential for centralised student timetabling systems, library databases and financial systems across the region."
