When the time came to refresh the computer hardware in Drake University’s labs, the Infrastructure and Security Services (ISS) team turned to virtualization to reduce their hardware needs while providing students with anytime, anywhere access to applications on their own devices. Many of the students at Drake bring Mac laptops to campus, whereas much of university’s software is Windows-based. The university wanted to implement a virtualization system that would let students access applications regardless of the type of device they were using. “We were looking essentially for a seamless environment that would work for both Windows or Mac users, or really on any platform — iPads, mobile phones,” said Chris Mielke, team lead of ISS Infrastructure Services.
