Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
Hyperconvergence—Rivier University went from 49 rack units to 9! Hear the case study comparing and explaining older server and storage technology versus a hyperconverged architecture using VMWare and Nutanix that Rivier University deployed for its virtual desktop infrastructure, allowing campus-wide VDIs to spin up in as little as 18 seconds and reducing rack space as well as energy consumption by 80%.

Outcomes: Learn what hyperconvergence really means * Learn about the advantage of VDIs on a hyperconverged architecture * Understand how Nutanix works
