Intelligent Infrastructure Gives SUU 80% More Capacity at 50% Less Footprint

Southern Utah University (SUU) is a campus community about 250 miles south of Salt Lake City, where students can enjoy the proximity to
national forests and monuments. With 11,000 students, more than 140 undergraduate programs and 21 graduate and certificate programs across six academic colleges, SUU proudly offers world-class, project-based learning opportunities where students gain professional experience before entering the job market. The 19:1 student/faculty ratio allows for a more personalized approach. While small, the university is considered leading edge regionally due to their investments in technology, specifically the development team. For example, they have successfully ‘dockerized’ many of their Banner applications. Having a solid infrastructure is critical for the development team, and VMstore has provided that stability.

Case Study - SUU

“We will be sticking with VMstore moving forward. It has met every one of our needs and more. The plan is to buy another unit as soon as possible. I am absolutely thrilled with it. As far as I’m concerned, they have lived up to every single claim they made.”
