Dell EMC today announced the successful implementation of a transformational ICT project at University of Bahrain (UOB) that included deployment of Dell EMC’s VDI, cloud and HCI solutions to meet the institutional needs for efficiency, performance and scalability.
With around 30,000 students, the university was looking to establish a world class learning environment and therefore needed a truly integrated infrastructure that was capable of meeting its ambitious growth needs, securing its data and minimizing the administrative and managerial challenges associated with operating separate infrastructures located at the main campus and two remote campuses.
The university deployed Dell EMC’s market leading VDI solution, VxRail, Dell Switches and Wyse thin client to accelerate their journey to IT and digital transformation. This set of truly integrated and automated transformational technology solutions have enabled the university to deploy new virtual machines that intelligently allocates available resources across the IT ecosystem to enable anytime, anywhere remote access to applications, course materials and other critical information securely. This has resulted in an increase in workflow productivity, employee efficiency, enhanced archiving and backup and storage optimization.
Sohaib Alabdi, Head of Information Network and Infrastructure Section at UOB said “Innovation, digitization and entrepreneurial spirit is important in shaping a nation’s economy. To this purpose, we at University of Bahrain believe that institutional success means driving innovation at every level, embracing advanced technology and ensuring our students are future-ready. Therefore, we were looking for a trusted advisor and have partnered with Dell EMC. Through this partnership, we aim to turn UOB into a future-proof and world-class hub for transformation, enterprise and innovation and chart our path to realize one of the primary objectives of the Bahrain’s Economic Vision 2030 – the creation of a sustainable and knowledge-based economy and society.”
Samer Diya, Country Manager, Oman & Bahrain at Dell EMC said “University of Bahrain was on the lookout for a solution that helps the institution increase its pace of innovation and offers its students and faculty the best levels of service. Through our industry-leading VDI and HCI solutions, the university has been able to leverage an integrated infrastructure to create a virtual computing environment that is readily flexible and scalable to meet the demands of tomorrow. We are glad to be part of their transformative journey, as they move a step closer in realizing their digital future, producing the next generation of skilled professionals in Bahrain and furthering human progress.”
