The VMware IT Ops team replace manual Dev/Test provisioning with end-to-end automation in the Private Cloud, and reduce provisioning time from 4 weeks to near 24 hours.
“With automated application provisioning, we moved our manual Ops model into true agile Dev mode.”
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.”
Wachter Reduces Storage Costs, Improves Performance and Simplifies Administration with VMware Virtual SAN
Wachter, Inc. urgently needed more data storage for their VMware virtual environment at its Lenexa, Kansas headquarters. By replacing the existing server hardware with three new Cisco nodes, packed with 45TB of storage and running VMware Virtual SAN™ software, the company reduced the capital costs of storage, improved storage performance, simplified system administration, and accelerated IT response to new business requirements.
"Most of the traditional SAN options would have given us 15 to 20 terabytes at a cost of somewhere between $5 and $7 a gigabyte. With the new Cisco servers and Virtual SAN we got cost savings at the rate of 1/5th of the traditional SAN, with 45 terabytes that cost less than $1.50 a gigabyte. It was a massive difference."
