The hybrid cloud solution PRIMEFLEX for VMware Cloud Foundation halves costs while doubling efficiency and performance at Akademiska Hus in Sweden

"It quickly became clear that Fujitsu could provide all the technology we need and scale easily to a hybrid cloud solution. Moreover, in terms of cost, Fujitsu delivered the best bang for our buck."

Per Brantsing Karlsson, IT Manager Akademiska Hus

Akademiska Hus transforms its IT estate to a fully digitized, hybrid cloud environment built by Fujitsu, providing improved performance and efficiency at a lower cost.

Customer

Akademiska Hus is one of Sweden’s largest property companies, which collaborates with universities and colleges to build, develop, and manage environments for education, research, and innovation. The company has properties across Sweden, from Luleå in the north to Malmö in the south, where approximately 300,000 people study, perform research, and work.

Challenge

Akademiska Hus wanted to digitize every aspect of its IT estate and migrate to a hyper-converged, private cloud environment to become more efficient and flexible. It also needed to deliver scalability and real-time information services.
