De MontFort chooses for Novell's Xen Virtualization

De Montfort University has chosen Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 as the foundation for its IT infrastructure for students and staff. The Novell system, built on the SuSE Linux Enterprise Server SP1 operating system, is designed to reduce storage costs, and using Novell's Xen virtualisation technology, improve resilience and flexibility.

The university is one of the largest in the UK, with more than 20,000 students and 3,000 staff across two campuses in Leicester. It offers 400 undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

Because the IT infrastructure at De Montfort had been managed by individual departments, a number of different systems had developed independently of each other, with poor integration. A lack of centralisation for data and services and fragmentation of the infrastructure made it hard for students and staff to work and share information effectively.
