Taiwan’s National Chi Nan University (NCNU) needed an easy way to distribute and manage software for its 6,500 staff members and students. NCNU began to roll out VMware View 4* for desktops on their virtual private cloud, deploying the VMware vSphere* virtualization platform. After running various compatibility tests and performance benchmarks, the team discovered that servers running on the Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series delivered the best results. They then started offering cloud computing services hosted on these servers.
“With VMware View 4* cloud desktop system supported by Intel Xeon processors, all types of personal computers at Chi Nan University can now be used to run complex software titles,” explained Hong Zhengxin, NCNU’s Data and Network Center director. “We’ve also decreased maintenance costs, reduced our utility bills, and managed our software assets centrally, providing increased flexibility. This has added value for our users and helped us realize cost reductions in terms of management.”
