Executive Summary

Deakin University is a four-campus institution with around 34,000 students and more than 2,200 academic staff. They wanted to curb a rapid increase in server numbers, improve CPU utilization and address space, heat and cooling issues at the main datacenter. They choose VMware to overcome these challenges. Adopting a virtualized server infrastructure has enabled the university to reduce hardware costs, improve resource usage, cut provisioning time and simplify server management. The results of deploying VMware were saving around A$200,000 in hardware costs by enabling existing server fleet to be repurposed, increased CPU utilization from 10% to 50-60%, aiming to achieve a server consolidation ratio of 20:1 and cut server provisioning time from four to six weeks to one hour.
