Qatar University (QU) wanted to provide a digital learning environment to support its growing faculty and staff populations, and expanding academic and research portfolios. This evolution necessitated a flexible and scalable IT platform to provide its community with an optimal anytime, anywhere teaching and learning environment.


QU is transforming from a traditional "chalk and talk" model to a digital institution, establishing the region's first SDN data center using Cisco ACI technology.


QU delivers educational services at any time, at any location, on any device. Students can access educational material at their convenience, resulting in customized, personal experiences. The automated data center has simplified data center management while accelerating application deployment for students, faculty, and researchers.

Providing services to students and researchers anytime and anywhere is a key component of our ongoing growth.
