RINGLING COLLEGE OF ART + DESIGN
“DDN plays an extremely important role in our environment. We don’t believe in jump drives or portable hard drives. It’s really rewarding to see what our IT team has been able to do with our high-performance DDN storage that lets any student get on any machine at any time and be creative.”
