Vucci Unveils Virtual Computer Lab at Utah Valley University
Computer labs are notorious for wire-clutter, low computer efficiency and high power usage, but Utah Valley University (UVU) together with Vucci Technology Solutions is working to change that. Through a partnership with the university, Vucci donated $100,000 worth of equipment and services to refit the athletic department computer lab with virtual desktops and managed services.

The new lab, named the “Vucci Computer Lab,” is open year round to all student athletes and their tutors. In addition to improving efficiency and cutting power usage by as much as 97 percent for the university, the lab will also make the student athletes’ lives easier by providing them with technology designed to help them make the most of their educational experience at the University.

"We are very excited by the benefits this new computer lab offers,” said Ray Walker, CIO at Utah Valley University. “The virtual desktops in the new Vucci-enabled computer lab allow us to run the lab with higher efficiency while at the same time cutting our energy, management and operating costs.”

The new computer lab showcases the first-ever implementation of Vucci’s virtual desktops and provides an excellent case-study of the cost savings and green initiatives Vucci’s virtualization services provide.
