Benefits from virtualization while protecting sensitive data


As one of the oldest institutions of higher learning in the U.S., the University of Pittsburgh has built a reputation for breeding and developing Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winners, Rhodes Scholars, NCAA champions, and countless other accomplished students, alumni, and faculty. Serving more than 700 of the university’s business support staff, the university’s Financial Information Systems Department sought to increase operational efficiency by moving to a virtualized data center in 2008.
