University of Óbuda, Neumann János Faculty of Information Technology

 

By the server and desktop side virtualisation of the educational environment, the Neumann János Faculty of IT was able to improve the efficiency of monitoring and energy consumption, therefore it is planning to continue future investments and developments in the same direction. An even higher advantage is, however, that by using virtualisation in a live environment, the teachers and students have the opportunity to acquire practical knowledge at the same time as learning theoretical studies. This includes fine tuning and optimisation of resource utilisation apart beyond the design and monitoring of virtualised environments. It is of high importance to the Neumann János Faculty of Information Technology to be able to teach state-of-the-art IT technologies not just on the theoretical level but in practice, too, because this is the precondition to provide to the students up-to-date knowledge with value on the labour market. Virtualisation occupies a distinguished place among these technologies. VMware Hungary provides all support it can in this field to the University of Óbuda in the form of professional advice, presentations and software licences.

“It is of utmost importance to us to be able to teach highly developed technologies like WMware View not only on a theoretical level but in practice, too, since this is the only way we can provide up-to-date knowledge to our students representing value on the labour market.”

— Dr. Tamás Schubert, Director, Institute of Information Systems, Neumann János Faculty of Information Technology, University of Óbuda
