University of Wollongong to solve data sharing woes

Adam Bender | Feb. 22, 2013
The University of Wollongong may soon enable thousands of students and staff to securely share information across many devices, following its decision to join a trial of VMware's new Horizon Suite.

Also, Horizon unifies disparate VMs into a "one stop shop," he said.

Saffioti added that he was especially impressed with the platforms ability to render a virtualized desktop.

"It's amazing how in a modern HTML5 browser, we can present a desktop [with] accelerated graphics performance in the 3D space," he said.

While the trial went well, Saffioti said the university hasn't made the final decision to buy Horizon. "We think it's a good platform" and "a viable solution, but we've got to go through a process and time will tell."
