Alfred University needed to update the server infrastructure that supports its SunGard Higher Education Banner Unified Digital Campus (UDC) and other applications while keeping costs low and maintaining strong support services. After testing x86-based servers from many vendors, the university found that Dell PowerEdge servers powered by Intel Xeon processor technology outperformed the others. The university deployed Dell servers to accommodate the ERP transition and also acquired Dell OptiPlex desktop PCs, Dell Latitude laptops, Dell projectors and Dell printers as part of an all-encompassing IT solution.
