Schools are increasingly facing new challenges with their legacy IT infrastructure. From online testing, BYOD adoption, increased school data access by faculty and students, and the surge in learning applications and instructional video — IT infrastructure needs to be more adaptable than ever. Schools must face these challenges under tighter budgets and with limited IT resources, while aligning to Common Core State Standards and Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium.

By virtualizing server applications and traditional desktops, schools can efficiently use their infrastructure, provide a consistent user experience with optimized application performance, and simplify management for IT administrators. However, the complexity of managing storage and compute separately and optimizing performance for old, archaic applications continue to be barriers to gaining the full benefits of virtualization.

The Nutanix Xtreme Computing Platform is the industry’s first and leading hyperconverged infrastructure solution—integrating compute and storage resources into a single appliance—and utilizing the same technologies that power Google and other leading web-scale companies. With a patented scale-out architecture, Nutanix delivers cost savings and predictable scalability for all types of virtual workloads.
