Somerset School District

 

K-12 education has changed dramatically in recent years. According to Sara Eichten, principal at Somerset Middle School in Wisconsin, “The Common Core State Standards have drastically changed what we need to be doing with our students in both English language arts and mathematics, as well as focusing on disciplinary literacy in science, social studies, and other related arts classes.” So in May 2013 when Somerset School District was selected to participate in a pilot program to test the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) platform to meet the requirements of the Common Core State Standards Initiative, it looked to VMware for help. VMware Horizon View helped ease the deployment of the rigorous testing platform and deliver a seamless user experience to students.

"With VMware Horizon View, we didn’t experience any technical issues when we did the [Smarter Balanced] pilot. People were concerned about audio sound quality, videos, mouse movements—those things that are critical in high-stakes testing—but we saw no performance issues whatsoever in our environment. The virtual environment performed the way we expected it to, and we’re very happy with the results.”

— Ryan Sicard, Director of IT, Somerset School District

SSOE Group

 

SSOE Group is an Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management firm with 1200 employees located in 29 offices across 7 countries. SSOE leverages the best talent that they have to complete client projects no matter where that talent is located and this requires global collaboration in a 3D environment. SSOE selected a solution utilizing VMware Horizon View, Cisco, and NVIDIA to deliver the 3D graphics performance required from applications such as Autodesk Revit to complete projects in a virtualized desktop environment.

"I’d absolutely recommend the Cisco Invidia VMware Horizon View solution to other companies who are using graphically intensive applications. It's the best of all possible worlds. With Cisco you're getting the hardware, reliability, performance, price point. With Invidia, the graphics acceleration, simply unmatched in a solution like this. And obviously VMware Horizon View is producing the capability for me to get a global work force collaborating in one location, using disparate people from anywhere."

— Bill Case, Director of Computer & Information Systems, SSOE Group

SSOE Group

 

Collaboration with talent around the world is one of SSOE Group’s central business models.

Transact Payment System

 

Cloud Based Disaster Recovery is Changing how VMware Customers do Business

Have you ever wondered how a comprehensive disaster recovery strategy could be implemented in the cloud? What applications can you protect in the cloud? Can you simplify your environment at a lower cost? What are the core benefits achieved as a result of implementing disaster recovery in the cloud, verses an on-premises solution? On March 25th, 2015 8.00 am PST, we hosted a Google+ Hangout event featuring VMware experts and our customers as they provide a technical deep-dive into the VMware vCloud Air Disaster Recovery service. They shared some of the challenges they faced as well as best practices for solutions to those challenges and ways the service has helped their various businesses.

“The cost difference between doing it yourself versus hosting it on VMware was really something that was attractive to us. And it only took us about six months from the day I joined The Hut Group to the day that we were able to stand up and test a fully functioning website. We never failed a production but we were able to replicate the full production databases out of the full production website and to do that within 6 months makes me feel very good but it also gave the executives comfort that they knew that we now had a solution which would be useful and known when we came to have a disaster.”

— Schalk vd Merwe, IT Director, The Hut Group

Tribune Media

 

Business Transformation at Tribune Media

Tribune Media has over 42 owned or operated TV Stations, WGN Cable, Gracenote for Entertainment Metadata and Tribune Movie Studios, and is one of the nation’s largest independent broadcasters. VMware has really helped Tribune Media stop the conversations around technology, focusing instead on the outcomes it needs to operate the business. Now they can concentrate on increasing security capabilities, decreasing costs and responding to customer needs faster. Tribune Media can grow the business and go after new markets, and that translates into more revenue per customer.

“VMware has been really critical to drive the fluidity back to the business. My head of engineering has literally a saying over his door. It says, ‘If we can’t automate it we don’t need it’. If we deploy an application in our infrastructure to automate processes, we give that time back. What ends up showing up to the business is our ability to do more projects and do them faster, cheaper and better.”

— David Giambruno, SVP and CIO, Tribune Media

Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue

 

Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue near Portland, Oregon leverages the VMware RealTime Mobile Response Solution to deliver critical information to mobile first responders and public affairs personnel.

"I would recommend VMware Horizon virtual desktop technology to other agencies facing the same challenges. The benefits that we’ve seen in administration and extending our enterprise network into the mobile and field environment have just been incredibly valuable and incredibly successful."

— April Frezza, Logistics Director, Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue

Union Hospital

 

Union Hospital Boosts Business Critical Application Performance on VMware Virtual SAN

Faced with aging hardware and maxed-out resources, Union Hospital preferred to replace its existing SAN and migrate to a different and better platform for its Tier-1 VM storage, Virtual SAN, a hyper-converged solution that provides scale-out capabilities and the best integration with the entire VMware stack. The decision not only saved money and helped right size their storage environment, it also solved key application performance challenges and freed up operational resources, positioning Union Hospital for future expansion.

“We actually had clinics calling us up to say how much faster the apps were running once they were in a pure Virtual SAN environment. … It seems like the more things we migrate to Virtual SAN, the more people are begging to be on it.”

— Chad Elliott, Network Systems Consultant, Union Hospital

University of New Mexico

 

The University of New Mexico comprises approximately 45,000 faculty, staff, and students with 100 departments and affiliates, and running about 660 VMs across the organization. Learn how the University of New Mexico is moving to a streamlined and automated private cloud model on VMware vRealize to gain a proper degree of centralization for infrastructure efficiency, while preserving a sufficient culture of decentralization for agility, innovation, and departmental-level control. Brian Pietrewicz, Director of Computing Platforms at UNM discusses the latest ways to manage cloud architectures and processes to attain the best of cloud efficiencies, while empowering improved services delivery and process agility.

“We're running a VMware stack and we're also running vRealize Automation. We've deployed the Self-Service Portal. We give departments, faculty members, or departmental IT folks the ability to go into the portal and deploy their own machines at will. Then, they are administrators of that machine. They also have additional management features through the vRealize Automation console so that they can effectively do whatever they need to do with the server, but not have to worry about any of the underlying infrastructure.”

— Brian Pietrewicz, Director of Computing Platforms, University of New Mexico
