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.
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.
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.
After evaluating the market, the company chose long-term server partner Fujitsu. Based on Akademiska Hus’ specifications, Fujitsu built a plug-and-play PRIMEFLEX for VMware Cloud Foundation solution, which now supports 450 users in 16 locations, using VDI.
