Virtual desktop infrastructure

improves the learner experience

We have worked with Daisy for many years and always found them very impressive. Daisy had also delivered similar projects to other education organisations so I knew we were in safe hands.

Dean Palmer, Director of IT at Berkshire College of Agriculture

The Background

With 2,000 learners, BCA provides a wide range of vocational, academic and occupational courses to 16–19 year old students and adult learners, plus an “outstanding” schools programme for 14-16 year olds.

The Challenge

Update and refresh an ageing IT infrastructure to deliver higher performance and improved services for users; provide new facilities, ease management overheads and reduce costs.

The Solution

Virtual Desktop infrastructure (VDI) from Daisy.

The Result

User applications and profiles for the 500-strong desktop community are managed centrally as part of the new high availability virtualised infrastructure, fully scalable to support future growth in user numbers and changing business requirements.
