Home Deals Swinburne Uni deploys Nutanix to automate student services

Swinburne University of Technology in Victoria has deployed its Cloud OS software from global cloud computing provider Nutanix in a move designed to help eliminate time-consuming and administrative tasks for the university’s IT team and final year students.  

Nutanix says the University's IT team needed a way to deliver easy-to-use IT services to the students with a behind-the-scenes infrastructure that enabled them to scale and automate those services.  

The self-service portal deployed by Nutanix works like an application store, where students can browse, choose and deploy the IT solution they need for their final year projects, including complex mobile application development programs with a single click.

Nutanix says that prior to the deployment, building the infrastructure needed to support the students’ requests could take weeks, or even months, creating extra work for the IT team and a long wait for students before they could start their programming projects.

“We selected Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS software because it supports our hybrid cloud strategy of migrating workloads back and forth between public cloud and on-premises without having to think about it,” said Simon Naughton, director, Infrastructure and Operations, Information Technology at Swinburne.

“However, the real benefit is for the students. Nutanix and our IT partner, Thomas Duryea Logicalis, help us keep Swinburne students focused on researching and developing the applications they are building, which ultimately provides them with a better education.”

Matt Young, senior vice-president and head of Asia Pacific and Japan, Nutanix, said, “Universities across Australia, and particularly technology universities, are growing fast, and students expect the right digital resources to be in place to support their education.

“Swinburne understands this trend and has found a simple, modern way to use the hybrid cloud and ensure their students’ attention is focused on their education, not technology requests.

“With the Nutanix software, all the key elements for success are fully integrated into one simple solution.”
