Columbia Sportswear

 

Starting in 2009, Columbia embarked on a company-wide initiative with VMware to virtualize its entire Tier 1 business critical SAP production environment. The objective was to create highly available, fault-tolerant, and disaster-proof business systems that could support faster time to market and reduce operating costs. The result is one of the most leading-edge IT infrastructures in the world. It provides Columbia Sportswear with a competitive advantage in a global market and aligns with the company’s aim of speed and innovation.

“It allows Columbia to compete in ways that none of our peers can. Our scalability enable us to respond to business demands at an industry-leading speed, and I don’t ever have to say no.”

— Suzan Pickett, Manager Systems Engineering, Columbia Sportswear

Columbia Sportswear

 

To meet growing global demand for its outdoor apparel and accessories, Columbia Sportswear required an infrastructure-as-a-service platform that would support its Microsoft-based business application portfolio. To improve IT and business productivity, Columbia wanted a service that would perform like a virtual extension of its on-premises data center and operate using its current management tools. Columbia chose VMware vCloud® Air™, realizing immediate cost savings and gaining a robust modern platform to support new application development.

“With vCloud Air, my team can be more efficient, users get an absolutely consistent experience, and we’re able to provide the same level of support we always have.”

Columbia Sportswear Gets Extreme on Software-Defined Data Center Strategy

A Briefings Direct podcast on how a major sportswear company has leveraged virtualization and hybrid cloud to reap substantial business benefits.

“With our business changing and growing as quickly as it is, and with us doing business and selling directly to consumers in over a hundred countries around the world, our data centers have to be adaptable. Our data and our applications have to be secure and available, no matter where we are in the world, whether you're on network or off-premises. The SDDC has been a game-changer for us. It’s allowed to take those technologies, host them where we need them, and with whatever cost configuration makes sense, whether it’s in the cloud or on-premises, and deliver the solutions that our business needs”

Cornerstone Community Bank

 

Cornerstone Community Bank chose VMware for its server virtualization and need for High Availability. Since using VMware the bank has experienced cost reduction in the purchase and maintenance of physical servers, and has implemented a disaster recovery plan that can be tailored to meet the ease-of-use but also scalability needs of a small IT staff.

“VMware is critical to our disaster recovery. It saves us many, many hours. At my previous place of employment, it took us about 12 to 14 hours to get a domain controller up in a disaster recovery test. With VMware, we're able to stand up our domain controller in about 4 hours.”

— Randy Dover, VP & Information Technology Officer

Cornerstone Home Lending

 

Due to the poor Hyper-V experience, Cornerstone launched a thorough investigation into competitive virtualization offerings that would provide a stable and reliable architecture. In the end, the team chose VMware. Cornerstone implemented VMware vSphere with Operations Management, deploying 45 hosts and almost 100 virtual machines to provide visibility into past and present asset health through a unique, centralized console, and enable superior platform-wide management.

“For the first time ever we’re able to capacity plan, to look ahead and forecast what we’re going to need for the next one, three, or five years. This allows us to act proactively and give the business a clear model of projected costs along with a timeline. Ability to forecast capacity usage has changed the way Cornerstone calculates IT budgets. It gives us the ability to invest in IT the proper way.”
