The Mississippi Community College Board (MCCB) is the coordinating organization for Mississippi's 15 community and junior colleges. Their challenges are they wanted to leverage server virtualization, but its aging physical infrastructure was slowing adoption. They were running out of data center space, and their power and cooling costs and support expenditures were growing. The MCCB chose VblockTM Infrastructure Platforms to overcome these challenges. The Vblock platform includes Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) blade servers, Cisco Nexus switches, EMC unified storage, EMC Ionix Unified Infrastructure Manager (UIM) software, and VMware vSphere virtualization. The results of implementing Cisco were decreased data center footprint by 40 percent, reduced management time by 60 to 70 percent, achieved 97 percent server virtualization and improved IT agility and reduction of provisioning time.
