News: Logicalis UK awarded million pound contract to carry out infrastructure work.
The University of Wolverhampton is the latest higher education establishment to digitally transform its services.
As part of its Digital Campus Transformation Programme the University will design and build a software-defined compute, storage and virtualisation infrastructure to underpin its Digital Platforms Project.
This has been built using HPE and VMware technologies and forms part of the University’s five-year £250m investment strategy.
The University has awarded a £1.3m contract to Logicalis UK which will carry out the infrastructure work.
Logicalis will create a digital platform that utilises automation, with the goal of scaling and delivering services on-demand.
The tech company provides a five-layer Software Defined stack that will work by blending HPE Hyper Convergence infrastructure, VMware virtualisation, HPE OneView and Helion automation, and cloud integration and instrumentation from HPE’s Virtual Performance Viewer.
The goal of blending this is to automate the provisioning, control, management and cost of IT services. Logicalis calls the approach ‘IT by Wire’.
Other universities to sign tech deals to digitally transform include Cardiff, Oxford and the University of York.
