Virtual Bridges VERDE case study - University of Milan

Major Italian university chooses VERDENComputing VERDE VDI

Virtual Bridges VERDE is the VDI solution of choice in the private and public sector but is growing fast also in the educational sector. As it combines the flexibility and cost effectiveness of Open Source solutions with the enterprise grade features and scalability is considered a better choice than "zero cost license" projects.

The department of Mathematics “Federigo Enriques” of the University of Milan uses Virtual Bridges VERDE  in an environment that requires support for both Windows and Linux under heavy workloads generated by mathematical and statistical simulation applications.

“In day to day use you can see the real limits of 'zero license cost' in-house made projects. With the introduction of commercially supported solutions based on Open Source platforms like Virtual Bridges VERDE we get the best of the technologies available as a ready to use solution.” - Dr. Alessio A. Alessi

Business Challenge

The Mathematics department was looking for a solution that would allow them to setup labs and class rooms for a total of 120 seats with support for both Windows and Linux operative systems.

Solution

After having considered and tested several VDI solutions on the market, the Department of Mathematics chose Virtual Bridges VERDE because it exceeded their expectations and requirements. VERDE was also chosen over free Open Source solutions because it's performances and built-in storage accelleration features meant the University could spend a lot less on server and storage hardware making it more cost effective than a zero license cost solution.
