Huawei Success Story: The University of Lübeck

16/07/2015 00:00:00


The University of Lübeck has existed since 1973 as an independent university in Schleswig-Holstein. The school has approximately 3,400 studuents, 160 professors and 100 lecturers. It includes programs in medicine, science/technology and natural sciences.

Key Challenge

Due to increasing demands for capacity and availability, the University decided to migrate the existing storage infrastructure to a new technology platform. In addition to the technological framework, easy integration with VMware Server virtualization software played a particularly important role.

"In terms of quality, performance and efficiency Huawei offered the best solution. The storage solution was tailored to our needs in performance, scalability, and optimal integration with VMware."
