Rock Island-Milan is a school district that oversees 14 different schools in Illinois. They had been using Active Directory® hardware for a while, but when it became time to upgrade, Rock Island decided to look for new innovations in the directory space. They knew that they needed a solution that could manage Macs, integrate with G Suite and Office 365, and strengthen the control they had over their multiple networks. Not an easy checklist to fill in.
Rock Island-Milan’s Case Study
“The more we looked into JumpCloud, it fit the bill for everything we needed all in one nice package.”
-Rock Island-Milan Team
Rock Island likely could have justified upgrading their Active Directory instance if they only had to worry about the outdated hardware and the expensive licensing. But since their environment included G Suite and Macs, there were a lot of variables that Active Directory just couldn’t handle easily.
Rock Island also wanted to take better control of their WiFi networks. Students were gaining access to the faculty WiFi network and using up the bandwidth. Again, Active Directory didn’t offer a solution.
Fortunately, while searching for directory solutions, Rock Island-Milan came across JumpCloud’s Directory-as-a-Service® platform. Now, they have been able to address many of their challenges and have saved money in the process.

For all of the challenges that Rock Island-Milan needed to address, JumpCloud was the solution that helped them meet their goals.
Join Rock Island-Milan By Moving Your Infrastructure to the Cloud
“We love JumpCloud! I even put the JumpCloud Sticker on my office door…how corny is that!?!”
– Rock Island-Milan Team
Don’t let your IT team get stuck in the on-prem world of Active Directory. Instead, switch your infrastructure to the cloud with Directory-as-a-Service, and see for yourself how you can save time, money, and stress in the process. JumpCloud’s cloud-based directory is an excellent option for those with cloud applications and cross-platform environments. With functionality that allows admins control over systems (Mac, Windows, Linux), cloud and on-prem servers (AWS, GCE), web and on-prem applications (SAML, LDAP), cloud and local storage (Samba and NAS File Servers), and wired and WiFi networks via RADIUS, the limitations are endless for admins.
If you would like to learn more about the cloud based directory for yourself, drop us a note. We would be happy to answer any questions that you might have, and explain why a unified cloud directory might be a good option for you. Alternatively, if you would like to test the platform out for yourself, sign up for a free account of the DaaS platform. Your first 10 users are free forever, with no credit card required, so there’s no reason not to give it a shot. You can test the platform out for yourself, in your own environment, and make sure that it meets all of the qualifications you have. Try it out today!
