Qirx deploys Nutanix at six Canberra schools
CRN has described recent Nutanix deployments by Qirx at 6 local Canberra schools: Canberra Girls Grammar School (CGGS), Radford College, Marist College, Merici College, Daramalan College and St. Francis Xavier College.
“Our creativity in how we educate students has dramatically evolved,” CGGS director of ICT integration and eLearning Eric Roussel said.
“We have about 3000 simultaneous connections logging onto our systems but only five people in the IT team. It’s imperative that our IT environment is simple and scalable so that our focus stays on improving education.”
Radford College meanwhile said its new Nutanix-powered IT environment has shrunk to just five per cent of the physical space of its predecessor, cutting down on power consumption and IT energy costs.
“We’re now looking at how we can leverage Nutanix and virtual desktop infrastructure for creating media labs and image and video processing capabilities,” Radford College IT operations manager Carl Flanagan said.
