After years of enduring a lackluster economy and multiple budget cuts, a major national university found itself with outdated, unreliable technology. The school partnered with DynTek to come up with a cost-effective way to move forward. The university used its existing Microsoft license to virtualize its data center using the Hyper-V technology in Windows Server 2008 R2 and to create a private cloud. It moved student email into the cloud using Microsoft Office 365 for education and deployed Microsoft System Center 2012 to manage the entire infrastructure. For a small investment, the university transformed its technology infrastructure, re-established technology reliability and trust in the IT department, and saved US$1 million annually.
