Univer­sity of Bahrain picks Dell EMC for IT trans­for­ma­tion

UOB de­ploys Dell EMC’S VDI, cloud and HCI so­lu­tions in ma­jor up­grade

Network Middle East - - UPDATE / DECEMBER -

The Univer­sity of Bahrain (UOB) has de­ployed Dell EMC’S Vir­tual Desk­top In­fras­truc­ture (VDI), cloud and Hy­per- Con­verged In­fras­truc­ture (HCI) so­lu­tions, help­ing the univer­sity op­ti­mise ap­pli­ca­tion stor­age by 40%.

UOB faced a num­ber of chal­lenges as­so­ci­ated with a tra­di­tional and siloed in­fras­truc­ture that hin­dered the per­for­mance of crit­i­cal ap­pli­ca­tions, work­flows, im­pacted em­ployee ef­fi­ciency and lacked the flex­i­bil­ity or agility to meet fu­ture ex­pan­sion needs. Dell EMC’S Vxrail helps the univer­sity re­duce com­plex­i­ties of a tra­di­tional and siloed in­fras­truc­ture, de­crease main­te­nance costs and pro­vide round the clock avail­abil­ity of mis­sion- crit­i­cal ap­pli­ca­tions.

So­haib Alabdi, head of in­for­ma­tion net­work and in­fras­truc­ture sec­tion at Univer­sity of Bahrain said, “Through this part­ner­ship, we aim to turn UOB into a fu­ture-proof and world-class hub for trans­for­ma­tion, en­ter­prise and in­no­va­tion and chart our path to re­al­ize one of the pri­mary ob­jec­tives of Bahrain’s Eco­nomic Vi­sion 2030 – the cre­ation of a sus­tain­able and knowl­edge-based econ­omy and so­ci­ety.”

The univer­sity de­ployed Dell EMC’S VDI so­lu­tion, Vxrail, Dell Switches and Wyse thin clients. This has en­abled the univer­sity to de­ploy new vir­tual ma­chines that au­to­mat­i­cally al­lo­cates avail­able re­sources across the IT ecosys­tem to en­able re­mote ac­cess to ap­pli­ca­tions, course ma­te­ri­als and other crit­i­cal in­for­ma­tion se­curely. This has re­sulted in an in­crease in work­flow pro­duc­tiv­ity, em­ployee ef­fi­ciency, en­hanced ar­chiv­ing and backup and stor­age op­ti­mi­sa­tion.

Alabdi: We aim to turn the univer­sity into a world- class hub.
