The Background

Home to 23,000 students and 3,000 staff, the University of Greenwich in London caters for a broad cross-section of students drawn from local communities in South London and Kent to international students from over 140 countries.

The Challenge

Demand for infrastructure capacity, capability and flexibility was rising fast. The University wanted a trusted partner to help transform its infrastructure and diverse range of ageing equipment that was becoming increasingly difficult to manage.

The Solution

Daisy partnered with the University to design and implement an integrated infrastructure solution across three campuses, bringing together server virtualisation, storage management and a fast backup.

The Result

IT services provided to staff and students improved while operating costs fell. The University has a high availability infrastructure that enables the dynamic allocation of IT resources; this solution is easier to manage and enables increased flexibility for equipment and staff alike.
