PALO ALTO, Calif. -- VMware, Inc. (NYSE:VMW), the global leader in virtualization solutions from the desktop to the datacenter, today announced that more than 40 universities in Australia and New Zealand are using VMware virtualization to enhance the online experience of their students. VMware is working with the Council of Australian University Directors of Information Technology (CAUDIT) which paves the way for more than 40 member institutions to deliver virtualization solutions at standard and low costs, regardless of a schools size. CAUDIT members include nearly every university in Australia and New Zealand.
VMware virtualization opens up countless business and academic possibilities that many of our members could not have imagined just a short while ago, said Geoffrey Dengate, chair of CAUDITs Standing Committee on Procurement. Using VMware virtualization, member schools are able to provide more innovative and flexible research and learning applications for students and faculty, and at the same time reduce their hardware and administration costs and minimize their impact on the environment.
