IT professionals in higher education and K12 institutions across the country are faced with a daunting challenge: how to leverage technology as a strategic investment to be utilized by students, educators, and administrators alike, while balancing the realities of shrinking budgets, staff consolidation, and the availability of IT expertise.

How can you start small and start fast? How can you invest in infrastructure without massive capital outlays? How do you scale quickly and easily to meet the needs of your organization? How do you support new applications, new initiatives, and a growing student population, and remove the burdens of infrastucture management from your IT staff?

Schools are saddled with legacy IT infrastructure, and at the same time are being forced to adopt online testing initiatives, virtual desktop initiatives, and to implement student management systems. BYOD efforts push new paradigms into the datacenter, and demands are ever-increasing for online learning applications, student-teacher-parent interaction, instructional videos, online textbooks, and more.

Lenovo HX appliances with Nutanix provide an out-of-the-box solution to these challenges, and many more. The Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform is the industry’s first converged infrastructure solution — integrating virtualization, compute, and storage resources into a single appliance — and utilizing the same technologies that power Google and other leading web-scale companies. With a simple scale-out architecture, Lenovo HX appliances with Nutanix deliver cost savings and predictable scalability for even the most intensive workloads. The advanced architecture of the Lenovo HX platform enables high availability across all system components to an unlimited number of simultaneous users.

From VDI workloads to Exchange Mailboxes to administrative tools like InfiniteCampus and Pearson Education products, Lenovo HX  with Nutanix provides the flexibility to run multiple applications on a single infrastructure. This eliminates the need for expensive, dedicated resources per application, while satisfying electronic information protection standards.

Let's talk about how to enable greater utilization of your IT resources and staff, while lowering expenses and decreasing the complexity of your IT environment.
