WHY THIS MATTERS:
A long-term hybrid cloud project has streamlined cross-campus data access for the California State University system. "Using Delphix and Unisys to implement our hybrid architecture strategy allows us, for the first time, to create a unified and secure data lake, populated daily with data from all 23 campuses," notes Michael Berman, CSU's chief information officer.
