When McMaster University built a new engineering computer lab, it needed the processing power of 56 engineering workstations -- but it also wanted to minimize the lab's energy and cooling requirements. This case study shows how a VMware View 4 virtualization environment easily supported their processing-intensive applications like CAD, while using less power than a traditional computer lab. Learn how McMaster University's power and cooling requirements are 91 percent less than a comparable traditional lab and instructors don't have to shout to be heard because there are no computer hard drives or fans in the room.
