Nizwa College of Applied Sciences now relies on a VDI infrastructure based on PRIMERGY and ETERNUS

"Beforehand, if there was an issue, we would have to wait until classes had ended to sort it out, which could take up a day of our time. Today, when there is a problem with one device, I log into the Fujitsu console from my own office and resolve it in ten minutes."

Nasser Al-Kindi Computer Specialist, Nizwa College of Applied Sciences

Nizwa College wanted to simplify management and reduce costs. It partnered with Fujitsu and Cutter to deploy a VDI solution running on Fujitsu servers and storage.

Customer

Nizwa College of Applied Sciences is a leading university college and an academic institution that aims to achieve progress in the areas of science, culture and thought. It works to enrich human civilization and expand the horizons of human knowledge, contributing to the achievement of economic and social development in the Sultanate of Oman.
