Queens University of Charlotte

 

Queens University of Charlotte and VMware vCloud Air Disaster Recovery

What began as a small college for women in 1857 has evolved into a co-ed, comprehensive, master's-level university with a commitment to liberal arts and professional studies. Today, Queens University of Charlotte in North Carolina serves approximately 2,700 undergraduate and graduate students through its six accredited schools: the College of Arts and Sciences, the McColl School of Business, the Blair College of Health (including the Presbyterian School of Nursing), the Cato School of Education, the Knight School of Communication and the Hayworth School of Graduate & Continuing Studies.

With a mission to provide a transformative educational experience and a global perspective, Queens University of Charlotte needs a platform that allows students to log in from anywhere, at any time to support its global learning and understanding initiatives—and that’s where VMware comes in.

VMware used vCloud Air to move the University’s production servers, without interruption to the domain controller for access management, ensuring Microsoft was continuously available for teachers and students to access emails. VMware vCloud Air was also used to host the University’s main website as well as a resource DNS server to be available 24/7 to alumni, prospective students, and donors.

Using vCloud Air Disaster Recovery, the University was able to host some of the apps they weren’t ready to move to the cloud like a CRM for recruiting students, fundraising servers, and other ERP systems.

“VMware vCloud Air allows us to provide anytime, anywhere service for all of our faculty, staff and students in a way that they can trust and they know that it will be available no matter where they are or no matter what’s happening with our on-campus environment.”

— Brian Baute, Chief Information Officer (CIO), Queens University of Charlotte

Rent-A-Center

 

VMware vRealize Suite Transforming IT as Rent-A-Center

Learn how Rent-A-Center, a leader in the rent-to-own space in North America, uses the vRealize Suite and automation and hybrid cloud management capabilities to empower and speed infrastructure delivery to modernize their IT infrastructure and point of sale software delivery.

“Before we had these tools (vRealize Suite and NSX), it took literally dozens of people a week to get a store deployed. Just because of all the back-end changes that had to occur. With the new tools, we’re able to deploy a hundred stores a day with minimal staff.

In addition to the time savings, with the use of the infrastructure tools that come with the vCloud Suite, we have an 85% (improvement) in infrastructure utilization, in time to deploy, in disk space utilization… it’s just been a tremendous savings in every dimension.”

— Michael Conroy, Senior Infrastructure Architect, Rent-A-Center

Rent-A-Center

 

Rent-A-Center powers critical transformation on VMware

Rent-A-Center is the largest rent-to-own operator in the United States offering high quality durable products such as major consumer electronics, appliances, computers, and furniture and accessories under flexible rental purchase agreements that typically allow the customer to obtain ownership of the merchandise at the conclusion of an agreed-upon rental period. Rent-A-Center operates stores across the US, Canada, and Mexico. Their rental purchase agreements are designed to appeal to a wide variety of customers by allowing them to obtain merchandise that they might otherwise be unable to obtain due to insufficient cash resources or a lack of access to credit. With thousands of stores nationwide, they rely on their technology partnership with VMware to help with growth of their IT infrastructure while addressing compliance challenges efficiently. Their Infrastructure has tripled in 18 months. Growth through acquisition has brought together varied technology that VMware’s solutions help work together. They also recently moved their Point of Sale system from on premise servers hosted in stores to a virtual machine in their corporate datacenter. VMware automation tools provide a consistent, efficient experience for that infrastructure. Today, Rent-A-Center has a push button catalog of items to deploy new applications and systems quickly and with few staff.

“With the new tools, we are able to deploy a hundred stores a day with minimal staff.”

Secure-24

 

Secure-24 Lowers Costs, Speeds Deployment, and Gains Flexibility by Virtualizing SAP HANA with VMware vSphere Solution

As a certified SAP partner, managed cloud services provider Secure-24 has hosted systems using the SAP HANA in-memory database since it was released in 2010. Yet unlike the majority of the applications Secure-24 hosts, SAP HANA was only available as a dedicated physical appliance—until recently, when SAP opened the door to virtualizing SAP HANA via the VMware vSphere® platform. Today, Secure-24 offers a more flexible SAP HANA service at a significantly reduced cost utilizing vSphere virtualization. Founded in 2001 in Southfield, Michigan, Secure-24 provides managed hosting and private cloud services to medium and large global enterprises. With a focus on application hosting, Secure-24 relies on more than 500 employees and a network of Tier IV and Tier IV+ data centers to deliver highly secure and highly available services that scale to meet clients’ evolving business and budget requirements.

“There’s a clear and growing desire in the marketplace to be able to take advantage of the power of SAP HANA without a huge capital outlay. VMware allows us to fulfill that desire by offering a virtualized solution.”
