Singapore Institute of Technology: Creating a Virtual Campus
The Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) provides industry-focused degree programs to graduates of the country’s five polytechnics. To build an IT infrastructure that can scale in line with SIT’s growth ambitions, the school deployed a virtualized model based on Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family-based servers. It has reduced overall server and desktop costs by 20 to 25 percent by adopting a virtual desktop strategy and cut datacenter real estate requirements by 50 percent.
The solution manages licensing costs more effectively and enabled provisioning of a new desktop 30 percent more quickly. Plus, students can access learning resources on their own devices through a virtualized environment, promoting a more tech-savvy SIT.
