Grove City College Finds Database Savings Outside the Cloud

Historic Pennsylvania College Cuts Costs with Shift to Inexpensive Local Data Servers Thanks to Sesame Software's Relational Junction Replication and Integration Tools 

SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 7, 2016 /CNW/ -- For Grove City College, the cloud was proving to be increasingly costly, so school officials worked with Silicon Valley-based Sesame Software on an inexpensive database solution that not only kept sensitive student recruitment information secure, but also made it easily managed and accessible.  

Like many organizations, the private liberal arts college located 50 miles north of Pittsburgh found the price for a cloud-based database kept rising as their data needs grew. "Cloud-based storage was getting expensive and I didn't want to keep going in and asking for more money," explains Alan Roberts, director of enterprise solutions for the school.

Roberts found the answer to those rising costs with Relational Junction. Using the SQL-based replication, integration, and reporting tools from Sesame Software, he moved the school's admission and recruitment information out of the cloud and onto local servers.

"It's been a huge benefit for the college," Roberts says. "Sesame Software and Relational Junction in many ways pays for itself by allowing us to pull that data from the cloud and store it locally in inexpensive disc space."

Relational Junction's replication and integration tools have not only worked seamlessly with the student information service software used by the school, but also provided Roberts with added piece of mind that all that confidential information is secure.  "We don't have to worry about it being out in the cloud and wondering what's going on with it," Roberts says.
