“A serious competitor to products from industry giants like VMware and Microsoft, Abiquo’s exemplary solution provides the great benefit of managing all of the major virtualization platforms simultaneously through a single console,” said  Professor Algimantas Juozapavičius, founder of the Digital Science and Computing Center at  Lithuania’s Vilnius University as it was announced that Abiquo's award-winning solution was selected to manage its new state-of-the-art Virtualization Laboratory built by the Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics, and part funded by the European Union.

The laboratory allows students to provision their own virtual resources across a broad selection of virtualization technologies in seconds – without placing any burden on University IT Operations staff, significantly reducing IT Operations costs.

“As well as managing the laboratory environment, Abiquo gives our students practical knowledge in the use of advanced cloud technology, broadening their outlook on the latest developments in the IT market, and allowing them to gain a competitive advantage in the labour market both in Lithuania and abroad,” Professor Juozapavičius added.
