New College Durham is a Further and Higher Education College based in County Durham, UK. With a large-scale student base offering a vast selection of courses, it was critical for them to have a flexible IT function that could support such a complex learning environment.
That’s why New College turned to VMware vCloud Air as the solution to virtualising their servers and infrastructure – a choice that gives it the flexibility and granularity it needs to perform at an optimum level.
“We wanted a Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) solution which could be operated using the same tools and skills that our IT team was used to. vCloud Air offered this, and it also provided the added benefit of being underpinned by comprehensive and fair service level agreements – meaning the college felt safe that the solution would be able to deliver exactly what it had promised.”
