Use VMware Infrastructure To Dramatically Consolidate Hosts While Beefing Up The Performance And Reliability Of Applications Like SQL Server
“This is a law firm, so most people here aren’t concerned about how our IT infrastructure’s set up. What they care about is, ‘Is it up?’ and ‘Is it fast?’ Since we’ve been running our key applications on VMware Infrastructure, the answer to those questions has basically been ‘yes,’ which makes our users—and us—very happy.”
John C. Lincoln Health Network
Diagnosis: Overcrowded Data Center. Remedy: Virtualization
“Intel’s Xeon processors work with the VMware Infrastructure 3 platform to give us the maximum server consolidation per dollar. If our virtual infrastructure was a car, we’d be getting more than 100 miles per gallon.”
John Muir Health
VMware vFabric tc Server Streamlines Application Deployment. John Muir Health is a not-for-profit health care organization that includes two of the largest medical centers in Contra Costa County, California – the Walnut Creek and Concord campuses of John Muir Medical Center.
“With tc Server, we have a more reliable and maintainable deployment strategy and it takes a lot less time. In the past, having to restart Tomcat, we could easily spend 30 minutes to an hour just setting up an instance and getting it running. Now, with tc Server, it’s a few clicks, and it takes less than 15 minutes to get an application up and running.”
Kadlec Medical Center
Use VMware Technology To Guarantee The Availability Of Healthcare Critical Applications While Saving Money, Power And Space In The Datacenter
“Running applications on ESX ensures their reliability, which is the number-one reason we began adopting it across the board in our datacenter. So many of our applications and systems are absolutely vital to staff and patients. So making sure they’re available whenever they’re needed is our paramount concern.”

Kaweah Delta Health Care District is using VMware to Dramatically Improve Availability and Run Tier 1, Mission-Critical Applications—Plus Create a New Revenue Stream
“We are moving as many of our mission-critical applications to the VMware environment as we can. I see VMware as our primary platform. It gives me peace of mind about availability and performance because it just works. I never have to deal with it. And the improved utilization helps control costs. These days, the first thing we ask a new software vendor is, ‘Does it run on VMware?’”
Discover how kCura plans to use vCloud Hybrid Service for faster product delivery and improved customer service
"As an early adopter of vCloud Hybrid Service we were really surprised at how quickly we were able to get things up and running. The documentation was very solid for our team. We pushed a 100-gig VM out in about two hours and that definitely exceeded my expectations."
Kettering Health Network
Explore how Kettering Health Network deployed a VMware View virtual desktop environment making it easy for clinicians to adopt their new Epic EMR system.

Kindred Healthcare Continues Business Through Disaster
“As a healthcare provider, in the case of a disaster, it is of the utmost importance that Kindred Healthcare can continue to do business as usual. And that means making sure that our internal service providers can maintain operational readiness even during a disaster. We contract with SunGard to provide our IT staff with 250 offsite PCs in the case of a disaster. The hardware independence of VMware ACE gives our users seamless access to their specific ‘Kindred tool set,’ regardless of the x86 hardware SunGard provides us. Knowing our staff will be able to keep Kindred Healthcare doing business as usual, using their same day-to-day computing environment, is an enormous benefit.”

Lakeridge Health Network
Lakeridge Health is one of the largest community hospitals in Ontario, Canada, serving more than 600,000 residents of Durham Region. Consisting of three acute hospitals, one specialty hospital, and several off-site facilities, Lakeridge Health manages more than 540 inpatient beds and employs more than 4,000 staff and physicians. Lakeridge Health is coming out of a multi-year capital freeze affecting IT. By deploying VMware Horizon™ (with View), Lakeridge Health now offers physicians bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and new remote access capabilities. Lakeridge Health also implemented VMware vSphere® to bring its data center and Meditech clinical system hardware up to date. Benefits include improved patient privacy and hospital safety; improved physician satisfaction and remote access to systems; better data center performance; and hundreds of thousands of dollars of savings in hardware costs.
“When we evaluated the systems side-by-side on value—in terms of price for functionality—there was no question that VMware was the best choice. We’re talking about hundreds of thousands of dollars of difference.”

Large U.S. Financial Institution
A large financial institution deployed the VMware vCenter™ Log Insight™ solution on four nodes supporting 450 hosts and more than 12,000 virtual machines. The solution manages millions of log messages every day. It replaced a homegrown log management environment that was inefficient and didn’t provide adequate visibility into the organization’s reporting infrastructure. Now, with the Log Insight solution, this organization can resolve challenges quickly and spot latent problems before they cause infrastructure issues that impact critical business applications.
“vCenter Log Insight is our primary troubleshooting tool. Root-cause analyses … are 50 percent faster, just given that we don’t have to wade through as many logs to find answers.”
Larimer County Provides Agile, Cost-Effective Services to Citizens with VMware Software
“Our virtualized environment delivers significant cost savings and allows us to improve performance and service delivery at the same time. Normally, these two things don’t go together — service or performance generally take a hit when you’re trying to reduce costs,. In our VMware environment, we’re able to do both, which makes our clients and the CIO very happy.”
Laurens County Healthcare System
Laurens County Health Care System wanted to attest to Stage 1 of Meaningful Use by summer 2013 but knew it couldn’t deploy Meditech in a physical data center environment because of cost and reliability concerns.
“Physicians are very excited that they can use their own devices from anywhere to access Meditech and review EMRs [electronic medical records] and patient data without physically having to come into the hospital,”
Le Moyne College
Le Moyne College worked with technology solutions provider Systems Management Planning, Inc. to make the journey to deep server virtualization and then the move to virtual desktop infrastructure in a structured and predictive fashion.
“Our relationship with SMP and the staff there has been critical from back in 2006-2007, when we began adopting server virtualization. With a new technology, you try to bring in a new environment. There are learning and assimilation curves. To get the value out of that, to get the bang for the buck as quickly as possible, we wanted to identify a partner to help us accelerate into leveraging that technology.”
