Whatcom Community College (WCC) located in Bellingham, WCC is where 12,000 students a year prepare for transfer to 4-year colleges or receive vocational training in such fields as nursing, paralegal work, early childhood education or computer information systems. In the face of increasing enrollment and decreasing budget, WCC needed to do more with less while improving IT service to students, faculty and staff. WCC pursued a two-pronged virtualization strategy: virtualize the datacenter to consolidate servers and simplify management, then virtualize desktops for simpler maintenance and improved end-user access to campus resources. The results of implementing VMware were maintain expanding systems with no increase in IT staff, it enable academic courses with on-the-fly application provisioning and accommodate increasing need and decreasing financial resources.
