Indiana University Unifies Infrastructure

Wholesale refresh with Intel® Xeon® processor 7560 increases capacity and brings enterprise workloads into the cloud

Company
Indiana University (IU) is an academic leader that enrolls more than 100,000 students at eight campuses. The university community includes nearly 20,000 faculty and staff, more than half a million alumni, and over 200 research centers and institutes. The annual operating budget is USD 2.7 billion.

Challenge
With virtual machines (VMs) growing at an average 6 percent per month, IU’s University Information Technology Services (UITS) department wanted to refresh its virtualized infrastructure to obtain higher performance and capacity. UITS also needed outstanding stability to move mission-critical databases, services, and applications off costly proprietary platforms and into a unified cloud.

Solution
UITS committed to what its leaders call “ruthless standardization.” It refreshed virtually all the university’s server infrastructure and now runs approximately 1,600 VMs on an internal cloud of 65 Dell PowerEdge R810* servers with the Intel® Xeon® processor 7560 and VMware vSphere 4 Enterprise Plus*. Accomplished in two months, the transition was invisible to users. The cloud includes 8 TB of DDR3 RAM, offers access to nearly half a petabyte of storage, and runs more than 100 Tier 1 Oracle Database 11g* instances.
