The VMware VMworld Mobile App

 

VMworld Connects, Engages, and Impresses Conference Attendees with a Next-Generation Mobile App

The VMworld organizing team wanted a best in class mobile app that would enable the best possible experience for conference attendees. They wanted an app that would set new benchmarks for ease of information access, personalized communication, real-time content delivery, and user engagement. The app also needed to be radically scalable, secure, and easy to integrate with on-premises corporate information systems and cloud-based services. Raw Engineering met the challenge by building a new mobile app with its built-io mobile backend-as-a-service platform and the VMware® vCloud® Air™ platform.

“@TheBurdweiser – The #VMworld #VMworld2014 mobile app is great this year! Very easy to navigate.

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

See How Tribune Media Succeeds with VMware Automation

See how Tribune Media tripled its productivity and kept staffing costs in check with the VMware vRealize Cloud Management Platform, including vRealize Automation. Application setup and configure times are now measured in minutes instead of days, all with help from VMware's Cloud Management Platform.

"We looked at the whole technical landscape, and we came to a really simple conclusion. We knew we were going to build an internal cloud to put our core internal operation platforms on. How do we operate faster, cheaper, better, and more secure? VMware was the choice.”

“In five months, we set up this infrastructure. We moved 141 apps onto the infrastructure and we had 9 helpdesk calls. So guess what? It works. It really works.”

“We have gone from the Flintstones to the Jetsons in less than 18 months."

“It’s literally ‘click a button’ to provide services and capabilities out to the business. We operate in minutes and seconds, not days and weeks.”

U.S. Government Agency Choses VMware Virtual SAN as the hyperconverged infrastructure platform for Cloud Service Delivery

A departmental headquarters of a U.S. government agency needed to evolve its partially virtualized IT environment into an efficient, low-cost infrastructure-as-a-service platform. Building on its success with VMware vSphere® server virtualization, the IT team virtualized its hardware-based storage tier with VMware Virtual SAN™ technology to reduce capital and administrative costs, simplify management, improve performance, and enhance scalability.

“With Virtual SAN being integrated into the hypervisor, I think it will scale easily. You just pick up another server and add some drives. This is going to fit our environment perfectly, especially as we start providing private cloud services.”

— IT Director, U.S. Government Agency,

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

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
