County Increases Resilience, Availability, Agility with Datacenter and Desktop Virtualization
“If some new project comes in—say a newly elected official wants different software or the state mandates a change—virtualization lets us implement quickly, in a stable, resilient environment.”
VMware® solutions empower Indiana’s Bartholomew County to do more with less. The county IT budget was $5,000 lower in 2010 than in 2001, yet the infrastructure today is more resilient, flexible and able to support greater workloads for vital functions from tax collection to 911 dispatches. Instrumental in the design and deployment of this infrastructure was VMware partner Network Storage Inc., an Indianapolis-based firm bringing expertise in storage, data protection and virtualization.
“With VMware technology, we’re not limited to any one physical server, location or desktop. Resources are more flexible, resilient and better able to support reliable, high-quality service to county citizens.”

Benefis Health System
Benefis Health System enables bedside medication verification and charting with VMware AlwaysOn Point of Care. Through tap and go roaming of the desktop, providers can access patient information within seconds. The result: Clinical staff now view IT as something that can help, not hinder them in their work.
"If we were to remove the system right now, I don't know how people would react. I think they would melt down, because they've become so accustomed to being able to provide that care at the bedside. Being able to spend time with the patient and chart, and then go on to the next patient without having to run back to the nurse’s station for charting.
The VMware Solution Reduced The Number Of Physical Servers By 700%, Allowed IT To Reduce Its Procurement Cycle From Several Weeks To A Couple Of Hours, And, Allowed Bernalillo County To Realize $300,000 To $400,000 – And Counting – In Cost Savings
“From the C-level, executive view, it’s about dollars and cents and being able to provide service to our end-users as quickly as we can; and VMware is going to get us there.”

“I am always amazed when I hear somebody say their company is not virtual because it cannot afford it. I ask how can it not -- we are saving costs on just power and cooling every day. VMware has made it much easier for us to be successful at our mission. I can’t imagine going back to the old system.”
