Education - A complex Marketplace
Education is a complex environment, perhaps more complex than many mission critical commercial environments! An education “campus” - whether a school, college or university will often need to deliver hundreds of software applications – many with audio, video or graphics - to service teachers’ and students’ needs. Server virtualisation and VDI can deliver improved value for money and better access from home and other non-education environments through secure and easy to access teaching and learning. Non-campus access is now a crucial component in delivering effective anytime anywhere learning. Additional benefits include; lower power consumption and reduced equipment disposal through the longer life cycle of ICT equipment. This new technology is robust, resilient and easily maintained – and is already delivering against the demanding needs of the education environment. Tribune’s experience of implementing VDI / Virtualisation within education environments is extensive. Through this we have recognised and measured the benefits that this technology can bring, this includes reduced cost, improved performance from old technology, savings on disposal and improved system and data security.
A “green” and cost saving solution with substantial benefits
With a VDI / Virtualisation solution from Tribune, schools save money and benefit the environment too: The adoption of a Desktop infrastructure incorporating latest thin client devices and power management results in a large-scale power, and therefore carbon footprint savings. Depending on how a device is used and managed, this power saved alone can be as much as £100 per device. Typically a 3-4 year life PC can be replaced by a 6-10 year life thin client. Alternatively, an existing PC can be re-purposed thus extending its life towards the 6-10 year term, thereby minimising e-waste and pollution created by destroying old machines.
