In a team effort to overhaul their Computing and Gaming Suite, we helped out Fareham College by setting them up with 54 high-end Reign Gaming PCs, with the aim to provide their students with a more seamless learning experience in their creative courses!
Historically using a Mac Suite to power their practical sessions, Fareham College found over time that these systems were not designed for the tasks at hand, causing optimisation and compatibility issues with the suite of software and tools used in their courses. Searching for a new solution, Neil McQueen, Head of Technical Services at Fareham College, sought out the advice of Tom Gregory, Account Manager at Novatech, who immediately recommended the Reign PCs as replacements.
Knowing the suitability of the PCs, and the appeal to current and prospective students that the Reign systems would bring, Neil decided to take the leap and began discussing the College's requirements with Tom. The PC systems were designed as capable workstations in order to accommodate course criteria, but would also offer seamless gaming and content creation capabilities for student leisure. Of course, these systems still needed to look good too, so Novatech provided RGB controllers as well as iCUE enabled parts and peripherals.
Novatech's Education Account Manager, Tom Gregory commented on the partnership, saying, "It was great to work on a project like this with Fareham College, providing the spec and set-up to fit the criteria for their creative courses. I have recently been made aware that the students of Fareham College took to social media posting about how much they love the rigs which was great to hear. We look forward to continuing to work with Fareham College in the future."

Desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) is far from a new concept. In fact, it has roots as far back as the late 1960s when IBM was utilising mainframes to centralise processing. This concept was expanded on with the client-server model in the 1990s before being super-charged by the more powerful servers and fibre-optic broadband connections of the 21st century.
