Liquidware Labs en FlexVirtual ondersteunen Windows-migratie van de Hanzehogeschool Groningen

- Partner van Liquidware Labs BENELUX Acceler8 helpt klantgerichte ProfileUnity voor de automatische upgrade van Windows XP naar Windows 7.

CHICAGO, 14 maart 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Liquidware Labs kondigde vandaag aan dat de Hanzehogeschool Groningen (University of Applied Sciences), haar ProfileUnity oplossing heeft gebruikt voor een succesvolle migratie van ongeveer 4500 beheerde desktops van de administratie, docenten en fulltime studenten van de hogeschool. De Hanzehogeschool heeft samengewerkt met de partner van Liquidware Labs Acceler8, FlexVirtual, om bij dit project te assisteren. Lees het volledige succesverhaal van de klant op de klantpagina van de website van Liquidware Labs.

"Het IT-personeel van de Hanzehogeschool wil samenwerken met haar partners, in plaats van alleen diensten te ontvangen," zegt Alex Pelster, Directeur van FlexVirtual.  "Zij willen hun technologische kennis uitbreiden, hetgeen een blijvende eigenschap is van onze succesvolle relatie. Onze filosofie bij FlexVirtual houdt in dat wij onze klanten zelf de touwtjes in handen willen geven. Wij willen hun kennis en ervaring uitbreiden, naast helpen bij de uitvoering van een oplossing."

Het IT-personeel van de Hanzehogeschool wist dat de applicaties die door medewerkers en studenten werden gebruikt naar Windows 7 verplaatst zouden moeten worden, met name gezien de Windows XP End-of Support in april 2014. Daarom plande Het IT-personeel van de Hanzehogeschool een migratie van Windows XP naar Windows 7, waarbij gebruikers op fysieke Pc's zouden blijven, met het plan om deze gebruikers in de loop der tijd naar een virtueel platform te verhuizen. 

"Wij zagen al snel dat, ongeacht de wijze waarop we onze desktops zouden virtualiseren, ons meest directe doel, een verplaatsing van gebruikers van Windows XP naar Windows 7, zo snel mogelijk uitgevoerd zou moeten worden," zegt Henk Weisbeek, projectmanager van het desktop-transformatieproject van de Hanzehogeschool. 

Volgens Weisbeek was het plannen van de migratie slechts de eerste stap; het op tijd en op een gestructureerde wijze bereiken hiervan was de volgende stap. Het IT-personeel van de Hanzehogeschool realiseerde zich al snel dat het niet eenvoudig zou zijn om duizenden gebruikers naar Windows 7 te verplaatsen zonder een specialistische oplossing voor het automatiseren van het proces. Het belangrijkste obstakel voor een soepele overgang was het feit dat bij Windows XP een 'versie 1'-profiel wordt gebruikt en bij Windows 7 een 'versie 2'-profiel.

"ProfileUnity heeft er al voor gezorgd dat wij niet langer beperkt werden door roaming-profielen, en heeft ons geholpen de overstap naar Windows 7 te maken, hetgeen voor ons belangrijke stappen zijn voor het verbeteren van onze leveringsmodus op de werkplek, en om ervoor te zorgen dat de Hanzehogeschool internationaal voorop blijft lopen op het gebied van educatie," zei Weisbeek. De centrale missie van de hogeschool is de professionele ontwikkeling van studenten zodat zij de hoogst mogelijke standaard bereiken waardoor zij na hun afstuderen direct klaar zijn om aan hun carrière te beginnen. Het kaliber en de kwaliteit van de IT-werkomgeving waarin studenten leren is van cruciaal belang voor het aangaan van de uitdagingen in hun professionele carrière.

"FlexVirtual is precies het soort partner waar Liquidware Labs naar op zoek is," zegt Chris Akerberg, voorzitter en COO van Liquidware Labs. "Zij zetten zich in voor de ontwikkeling van expertise in desktopvirtualisatie en onze oplossingen, zodat zij het beste resultaat voor onze klanten kunnen leveren. Desktop-transformatieprojecten kunnen complex en duur zijn zonder professionele begeleiding. Wanneer een partner zoals FlexVirtual erbij komt om de overgang met precisie en zorg te begeleiden, heeft dit een grote invloed op de planning en het budget van de klant, en het zorgt voor vertrouwen in de toekomst."

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
