VIF International Education Runs its Global Learning Platform Three Times Faster with VMware vCloud Air

VIF International Education, headquartered in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, provides an exchange program for international educators who want to teach in the United States, and offers educational programs and resources to develop global citizens. When usage for its Learning Center platform grew from 1,500 to more than 8,000 users in one year, the platform experienced outages and bandwidth issues that impacted the user experience. By migrating to vCloud Air, the platform has 99.999 percent availability, providing a consistent experience for teachers, while using only one-third of the compute resources as the on-premises facilities.

“The fact that vCloud Air allows me to use the same vSphere interface to manage both our internal servers and our systems in the cloud just makes life a whole lot easier. I don’t have to learn a new system and a new interface. Even better, I don’t have to teach it to anyone else.”

— Mark Haney, Senior Systems Engineer, VIF International Education

Learn How You can Use VMware Hybrid Cloud to Extend Your Existing Applications and For Development/Testing

Ever wondered how you can extend your existing applications from your data center into the public cloud to achieve agility and CAPEX savings for handling seasonal workloads, geographic expansion and data center transitions with ease? How can you deliver a truly hybrid platform, allowing you to free up valuable on-premises data center capacity while developing and testing new applications faster?

June 23rd, 2015 8.00 am PST, we hosted a Google+ Hangout event featuring VMware experts and our customers as they provide a deep-dive into the two most common use cases for VMware vCloud Air : Extend Existing Apps and Dev/Test.

“vCloud Air provided us an Agile solution to assist us in our cloud transformation.”

VIF International Education and VMware

 

User traffic on VIF International Education's Learning Center, an online professional development platform for K–12 educators, grew by more than 500 percent in one year, but its on-premises IT infrastructure couldn’t keep up. This mission-critical service was running on a single server blade without power or network redundancy, leading to unacceptably high downtime. By moving to the VMware vCloud® Air™ platform, VIF gained vastly higher availability and near-unlimited scalability, improved resource utilization by 300 percent, and reduced its IT systems management workload.

VIF International Education builds global education programs that prepare teachers and students for success in an interconnected world. Based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, the firm supports teachers, schools, and school districts with programs for professional development and curriculum, language acquisition, and cultural exchange. VIF is proud to be a B Corp, certified to meet specific standards for social and environmental performance. VIF is dedicated to developing globally competent citizens with the skills to thrive in an increasingly global marketplace.

“VMware vCloud Air represents for us the opportunity to deliver on our mission to deliver global education for all.”

— David Young, CEO, VIF International Education

VMware IT

 

To improve service delivery agility and responsiveness to application developers and test engineers, VMware’s operations organization implemented VMware vRealize™ Suite to accelerate its application delivery process. By automating the end-to-end provisioning and test process as well as leveraging VMware internal private cloud infrastructure services, VMware slashed the time needed to deliver workloads to the development team, increased the predictability of provisioning tasks, and decreased IT costs. The result helped VMware become more agile by improving developer productivity while at the same time decreasing project risk and application backlog.

“By streamlining application delivery and ongoing management, VMware vRealize Suite frees up more time for development and allows IT to be more agile.”

— Job Simon, Vice President of IT Strategy and Architecture, VMware
