Even so, the school’s IT department was initially nervous about service disruption. VFS schedules classes from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., so there was no time for service loss. To the IT department’s relief, the Dell technologies helped the school avoid such a disaster.
“Without a doubt, this has been one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences in my career,” said VFS head of IT Bernard Gucake in a news release. “Although we were already on a digital transformation journey, the unexpected happened, and we’re proud of what we managed to achieve within a couple of weeks with Dell Technologies.”
Dell Precision’s optimizer features improved the system’s performance by a significant margin. Using AI, the optimizer helped the IT department quickly identify and remove bottlenecks. When combined with NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 GPUs that provide accelerated ray tracing and AI, the Precision 5820 workstations also cut render times by 60 percent.
“VFS students know they are getting access to not only the best teachers, but also the most powerful and reliable technology built to bring their ideas to life,” Gucake said in the release.
