Meet Expanding Student Expectations and Institution Demands

Today colleges and universities are being tested by evolving student demands, new models of learning, and a competitive educational landscape. The VMware portfolio of solutions provide game-changing efficiency, helping institutions evolve their IT infrastructure to meet these challenges.

  • Transformative technology can extend existing infrastructure to meet the demands of important new data center and productivity solutions.
  • Bulletproof security guards institution resources and reputation from the inside out, protecting against threats that are evolving in both number and complexity.
  • Seamless mobility helps deliver learning and business services to diverse applications, users, devices, and locations.

VMware solutions are created to support new models of teaching and learning, a strengthened and simplified IT infrastructure, and robust protection of institution information and assets.

Unleash Transformative End-to-End Technology

As the data center becomes the focal point for deep technology innovation, vCloud Air is the ideal solution for maximizing the impact and efficiency of your IT investments. Get the fluid workload portability, streamlined app development and deployment, and always-responsive capacity needed to make learning happen where and when it happens.

This flexibility is essential to creating solutions that match the demands of decentralized decision-makers all working to support their own diverse program needs. From student-facing applications to high-powered research computing capacity, vCloud Air and the rest of the VMware portfolio are ready for the challenges of today’s higher ed.

Build Bulletproof Security

Technology-driven learning creates new opportunities, but also generates new risk. Security is always top priority, even as decision-makers also demand nonstop access and innovation. Traditional solutions can’t deliver this balance, but VMware NSX was purpose-built for the challenge, giving IT granular control that starts in the data center and finishes at the endpoint.

Classic perimeter security models focus on protecting the outside. VMware NSX works from the inside out, creating a Zero Trust network built around granular, workload-specific security that guards against dangerous lateral threats that breach perimeter defenses and may linger, undetected, in the data center for months.

Empower Seamless Mobility

Learning today is less about place and more about purpose. This means the modern campus depends on connectivity and collaboration, not physical spaces and places, to make good on the promise of higher education. VMware AirWatch helps make mobility simple and manageable, connecting diverse endpoints to always expanding digital tools and resources.

Ultimately, this means creating compute and collaboration experiences that are intuitive and friendly to end-users without increasing the size or complexity of the IT workload. Whether it’s managing staff devices or opening the door to truly secure BYOD, AirWatch makes mobility matter in higher ed.

Open, Dependable Infrastructure

“We have a continuously running service in the cloud that analyzes our infrastructure.”
Tom McMahon , Weill Cornell Medical College

Compliance Made Simple

“We can template environments, spin up VMs, and say this is a HIPAA-complaint system.”
Brian Pietrewicz, University of New Mexico
