“VMware has been a trusted partner in our Cloud First initiative. With this deployment we not only have a highly scalable and flexible platform, but also have an IT setup that is extremely easy to manage. Apart from meeting the storage and performance requirement of the national site, we can now provide students and project staff for their experiments or research work on-the-fly, without any delays.”
