In lieu of a 5% budget cut, the NetApp organization, a data storage innovator, has generously donated new storage systems to the college to improve the students’ ability to access information. The new system, FAS3170, now provides students with disabilities the ability to work from their home systems, rather than requiring them to make the commute to the college’s computer lab, which was not always available for use.
Metro State is currently discussing adding onto the storage system to allow students the ability to log on and roam from any location, regardless of distance. However, in the meantime, FAS3170 will allow for students, much faster, and more reliable Internet services for their storage needs. With these donations by NetApp, Metro State students with disabilities will be able to focus more on their studies and less on the barriers preventing their success.
