University of Sᾶo Paulo Launches Cloud Computing Project

In late 2012, the University of São Paulo began an initiative called Cloud USP to give teachers, students, and staff access to a dynamic IT infrastructure. Based on Citrix CloudPlatform*, the private cloud runs on a FlexPod* architecture, which includes NetApp storage systems powered by Intel® Xeon® processors as well as Cisco Unified Computing System* Blade Servers and Cisco Nexus* switches.

Cloud USP will eventually incorporate all the university’s corporate systems and also provide a scalable computing platform for researchers, teachers, and students to conduct their work. Each user at the university can access a set of services through their USP ID and password. USP is the first university in Latin America to launch an institution-wide cloud computing system.
