Integrated System PRIMEFLEX for VMware vSAN increases productivity of students and faculty at Cochin University of Science and Technology
"We were looking for a single virtualized solution with common, simple management. Fujitsu was one of the best industry players that could offer this in a complete, customized and hyper-converged solution."
CUSAT has deployed a hyper-converged FUJITSU Integrated System PRIMEFLEX for VMware vSAN to provide high-performance, scalable and cost-effective computing.
Established in 1971, Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT) is a government-owned science and technology university in Kochi, Kerala, India. It awards degrees in engineering and science subjects and has 29 Departments of study and research offering Graduate and Post Graduate programs, across a wide spectrum of disciplines in frontier areas of Engineering, Science, Technology, Humanities, Law and Management.
CUSAT’s individual academic departments had been building their own IT platforms, however, the University wanted to centralize all of its computing requirements on a single, flexible computing platform. It needed to find the right technology partner to meet its complex needs.
The University has deployed FUJITSU Integrated System PRIMEFLEX for VMware vSAN, an integrated system for deploying a hyper-converged IT that includes compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources.
- Improved compute performance increases productivity
- Simple scalability ensures the solution can grow to meet rising demand
- Individual departments no longer need to invest in their own costly IT infrastructure
- New virtual machines can be provisioned quickly
- Reliable hardware guarantees optimal availability
