Australian University opts for Hybrid DaaS
The University of Canberra is innovating how students and staff access University learning environments, corporate applications, and data.
‘The University had a strategic goal to provide equitable access to student software and to allow staff to use campus-based IT services while working from home. The staff experience is simple and smooth and provides access to a Windows desktop from any web browser. Staff can work with standard campus applications as well as research tools with GPU graphics and processing.’ said Justin Mason, Associate Director at University of Canberra.
‘Having the staff platform launched during the COVID-19 pandemic provided an important resource for staff working from home on their own personal devices. With a blended teaching model being deployed for Semester Two, the University will soon be launching this facility for students, and this will be a critical resource for those who are not able to return to campus,’ Mason continued. ‘Being able to provide remote access to applications and data normally only available in campus labs, will ensure that no student is disadvantaged if they are studying remotely.’
UC has extended its AHV data-center platform to host Frame DaaS in a true hybrid architecture, utilizing on-premises AHV capacity before bursting to AWS and Azure on demand. The hybrid DaaS model reduces risk, minimizes costs, and allows expansion for more users and specific use cases.
