“In our business case, we looked at five-year total cost of ownership. The Lenovo solution gives us a 60% saving on our previous infrastructure—which we can reinvest in better services for students and staff.”

Delivering better student and staff services at 60% lower cost

As New Zealand’s largest university, the University of Auckland provides first-class teaching and research opportunities to more than 40,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students. Efficient information systems are the backbone of both academic and administrative services. To attract and retain the best students and staff, the University must offer fast, reliable, and convenient IT services—without breaking the bank. 

Sanit Kumar, Infrastructure Services Portfolio Manager, says: “Our vision was to adopt a hyperconverged infrastructure run by a single, cross-functional team, replacing siloed technologies so that we could manage services from an end-to-end, value-stream perspective.”
