Universidad de Extremadura is a public university founded in 1973 which consists of 19 centers organized across 4 campuses. The university is doing important cost savings thanks to the consolidation of data and storage infrastructure, giving students an improved learning environment.


  • To install a network based on simplicity, resiliency and automated management, that would provide improved user experience across its 4 campuses
  • To provide storage and virtualization backup between 2 campuses
  • To improve the daily activities of all people on campus




  • Universidad de Extremadura now has storage replication between 2 campuses that are 100 kilometers apart                              
  • Important cost savings have been made because the solution consolidates the data and storage infrastructure by using Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) technology
  • Students have better remote access to the resources around the campus, improving their learning environment

"The new Data Center network enables the IT Department to provide better access to storage and applications to students, faculty and employees."

— David Rodríguez Lozano, IT Director
