University Uses Private Cloud to Trim IT Costs While Improving Reliability and Innovation
4-page Case Study posted: 02/20/2014

After years of enduring a lackluster economy and multiple budget cuts, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) found itself with outdated, unreliable technology. The school partnered with DynTek Services, a member of the Microsoft Partner Network, to come up with a cost-effective way to move forward. FAMU used its existing Microsoft license to virtualize most of its datacenter using the Hyper-V technology in Windows Server 2008 R2 and to create a private cloud. It moved student email into the cloud using Microsoft Office 365 for education and deployed Microsoft System Center 2012 to manage the entire infrastructure. For a small investment, FAMU transformed its technology infrastructure, reestablished technology reliability, and saved a significant amount of money. The IT staff can now deliver new services that enhance teaching and learning and help attract top students.
