Oxford University Runs Their Hybrid Cloud on VMware


Oxford University is the oldest university in the English-speaking world, with over 900 years behind its belt and 40 world-class leading universities to boot. For a university system renowned for its research, the ability to efficiently manage data for all 40,000 of its users is of the utmost importance.

Oxford University has been using VMware technology to virtualize their infrastructure since 2003, so VMware was a natural first choice when it came to undertaking their major Database-as-a-Service hybrid cloud project. Through VMware vCloud Service Provider Colt and VMware’s Hybrid Cloud Activate service, Oxford University was able to achieve what would have taken 6 or 7 months in a matter of weeks.
