Allow students the freedom to learn when and where they do their best work
Higher education students are busy learning to solve the challenges of the next generation. They often need advanced software to do that, and they need the flexibility to work on their own time schedules. Busy managing an average of 1,000 lab systems in 100 different locations, plus faculty and staff systems, higher education IT professionals have long been challenged to provide the flexibility that students need – until now. Dell has put together a variety of end-to-end solutions for virtual desktops and applications, which allow IT to manage multiple lab spaces from a central location. Plus, Dell can help set up key software titles for student access, allowing them to work with even graphics-intensive applications on their own devices, even when the lab is closed.
Dell has worked with leading desktop virtualization partners, such as VMware, Citrix, Microsoft, NVIDIA, AMD and Intel, to drive the cost and complexity out of these solutions. We’ve created scalable virtualization appliances that drastically reduce time to value, and thin clients that simplify endpoint management and lower acquisition costs. Plus, desktop virtualization is a great way to keep sensitive student data and university IP off of endpoints and in the datacenter, where it is both securely encrypted and available for collaborative work.
See how Dell’s Cloud Client-Computing solutions can both free up IT staff to innovate and give students the freedom to do their best work.
