Strayer University Improves End User Computing Experience with IGEL
Strayer University is leveraging the IGEL Universal Desktop Converter (UDC) and IGEL UD3 to provide faculty, administrators and student support staff with seamless and reliable access to their digital workspaces.
As IT operations manager for Strayer University, Scott Behrens spent a lot of time looking at and evaluating endpoint computing solutions when it came to identifying a new way to provide the University’s faculty, administrators and student support staff with a seamless and reliable end user computing experience.

“I looked at various options including traditional desktops, but due to the dispersed nature of our business, I really wanted to find a solution that was both easy to manage and reasonably priced,

especially for our remote locations where we have limited or no IT staff on premise,” said Behrens. “IGEL fit perfectly into this scenario. Because of IGEL’s simplicity, we are able to reduce the time it takes to get one of our locations up and running from a week, to a day, with little support and very little effort.”

Strayer University first began its IGEL deployment in 2016, with a small pilot program of 30 users in the IGEL UDC. The university soon expanded its deployment, adding the IGEL UD3 and then Samsung All-in-One thin clients outfitted with the IGEL OS and IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS). Strayer University’s IGEL deployment now includes more than 2,000 endpoints at 75 locations across the United States. The university plans to extend its deployment of the IGEL UD3s further as it grows and the need arises to replace aging desktop hardware.
Leveraging Hyperconvergence for Databases and Tier 1 Enterprise Applications
In this white paper, vExpert Scott Lowe, discusses: (1) why organizations are implementing hyperconverged infrastructures, (2) how to move forward with hyperconverged infrastructure plans while ensuring your database applications continue to grow, (3) how to boost hyperconvergence performance, (4) what is the performance metric that rules them all, and (5) what are the business benefits of leveraging hyperconvergence.

We live in a data-driven world. The quantity of and need for increasing amounts of data will skyrocket in the coming years, and behind it all are databases intended to help organizations maintain the madness. At the same time, the infrastructure that powers these databases is undergoing a massive transformation as organizations seek to simplify complex IT systems to reduce the cost of such systems and to improve the speed of the business.

Hyperconverged infrastructure has emerged in recent years as an incredibly powerful way for organizations to rein in data center madness. Adoption of this technology has been explosive—in a good way!—and organizations are enjoying significant operational efficiency and cost benefits to such adoption. How do you forge?
