in briefTechnology giant Cisco today announced that Deakin University will roll-out its Unified Computing System platform within the university's new datacentre.

According to Cisco, the Unified Computing System platform, which combines data virtualisation, ethernet networking and computing technologies, will help speed up the way software applications are delivered to students and staff. The technology company also boasted that the platform allowed for a reduction in the amount of servers and cabling which would "decrease the university's datacentre carbon footprint".

Dimension Data has been contracted to design and deploy the platform at the university's campuses in Burwood and Geelong, Victoria. The new system will integrate with the university's existing Cisco Borderless Network architecture.

"The deployment of Cisco's Unified Computing System will allow the department to be so much more responsive. It will enable us to maximise resources and give us the opportunity to shift our focus from IT maintenance to technology innovation," Simon Mills, networks manager at Deakin University, said in a statement.
