At Dell's annual conference, Dell World, founder Michael Dell introduced Tulane as one of the most highly regarded research universities, and invited CTO Charlie McMahon onstage to talk about his experience as one of Dell's Higher Education partners.
McMahon offered some insights about what Tulane has been able to accomplish in partnership with Dell with regard to Tulane's Data Center and network, saying, "It's not about doing more with less, it's about doing the right thing for the institution."
Thanks in part to Dell, McMahon tells how we have been able to extend the life of our data center for 10 years through virtualization. Tulane has been able to reduce power consumption and the physical footprint.
Also Dell has been a huge part of Tulane's infrastructure simplification and quality of service for students who expect enough WiFi across campus to be able to consume both educational and entertainment resources.
