GEORGIA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY: VIRTUAL LAB:

Virtualize and deliver some of the world’s most performance-intensive applications to a bring-your-own-computer (BYOC) environment with some of the world’s most talented engineering students –  And do it over networks
you don’t control?  No problem.  At the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), the College of Engineering is the largest of Georgia Tech’s six colleges, COE offers more than 50 graduate and undergraduate degree programs through its main Atlanta campus and satellites around the world. Its 12,000 students use an estimated 150 unique apps—the same ones businesses rely on to design airplane wings, model circuit-board layouts, and much more.
They initiated  Virtual Lab (Vlab) project as one of his top priorities.

Challenges

  • Create a Virtual Lab providing bring-your-own computer access to dozens of sophisticated engineering applications for thousands of students to use

Solutions

  • VMware vSphere* ESX4.1 and Microsoft, Hyper-V* 2008 R2 SP1, Citrix XenDesktop* 4.0 and 5.0
  • Dell PowerEdge* R610 servers and M610 blades with Intel® Xeon® processors 5600 and 5500 series and Intel® Ethernet Server Adapter X520
  • Mix of SAN technologies (Dell EqualLogic)

Technology Results

  • Implemented flexible, high-performance VDI infrastructure with hypervisor agnostic virtualization
  • Serves more than 4,000 unique students over campus and off-campus networks with support for any device that will run the Citrix client

Lessons Learned

  • Desktop virtualization affects all aspects of infrastructure. Avoid bottlenecks by planning and monitoring every aspect. Work closely with wireless network and backbone teams.
  • For demanding applications, optimize servers to balance cores and memory capacity.
  • Manage expectations and usage carefully. Demand can easily overtake capacity.
  • Design for flexibility so you can so you can take advantage of rapid advances in virtualization technologies.
