Nangyang Technological University needed to support academic activities with scalable computing resources. It was also faced with the challenge of moving workloads from a private university cloud to AWS during peak times while keeping data secure. The school also had to monitor resources in both on-premise and public cloud environments.
NTU, based in Singapore, also deployed hybrid cloud infrastructure to allow one contiguous network from NTU to Amazon using AWS Direct Connect. The school also attained secure data storage (NetApp Data Storage Systems) using a storage box mapped to NTU’s private storage.
By deploying the Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure, NTU increased scalability of resources without compromising security. It also achieved greater efficiency through automatic resource provisioning. The new infrastructure also allowed better use of existing resources and saved costs.
