“Lenovo ThinkAgile MX for Azure Stack HCI offered the simplicity and ease of management that we wanted, with resiliency and high availability built into the hyperconverged stack.”

Helping students and researchers achieve their goals

IPS is expanding, with 20% annual growth in student numbers. Meanwhile, the institute is working to establish itself as a center of excellence for research. With a flexible, high-performance hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) based on Lenovo ThinkAgile MX Series, IPS can support a growing number of students and research projects.

Customer Problem

But with the number of both students and research projects growing, pressure was building on the institute’s IT infrastructure.

Lenovo Solution

IPS chose to move away from its multi-vendor, three-tier data center architecture to a unified HCI solution based on Lenovo ThinkAgile MX for Azure Stack HCI.

Business Impact

The move will deliver a huge increase in both capacity and performance, helping the institute to better serve students and researchers.

“We’ve measured a 47% increase in performance for the migrated workloads, which has given both day-to-day operations and academic research a huge boost.”

Rui Borralho, IT Specialist, Instituto Politécnico de Setúbal
