“VMware Cloud on AWS requires significantly fewer resources to manage than our on-premises environment. We can spin down resources when everything slows down after graduation in the summer.”

Making a High-Caliber Learning Experience Accessible On or Off Campus
The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) serves 7,400 students in the US. To deliver students a modern, high-caliber learning experience accessible from anywhere on or off campus, the college needed to embrace more cloud technology and establish a secure, virtual desktop infrastructure at scale. Partnering with non-profit technology services provider, NJ Edge, the team rolled out a “work from anywhere” solution of VMware Horizon® on VMware Cloud™ on AWS. The college migrated its VMware vSphere clusters to VMware Cloud on AWS, leveraging VMware HCX® to simplify and streamline the migration. The team also implemented VMware NSX® Data Center for an additional layer of security and network virtualization enhancement.
