City of Avondale

 

City of Avondale Establishes Business Continuity and Protection for Critical Services with vCloud Air Disaster Recovery and vSphere

After implementing a hybrid cloud solution based on vSphere, the city of Avondale determined that it was positioned to take a major leap with its backup and disaster strategy. The city had local backup services for fast recovery. However, it had aims for a regionally separate disaster recovery site in case of a major catastrophic event in the Phoenix Metropolitan area. City staff saw emerging as-a-service options as a means to allow Avondale to achieve its business resumption goals at a level of cost and ease unavailable in the past.

“We reached our goal of 70 percent virtualization in just over a year within a year of using vSphere. VMware continuously advances its technology and provides options that allow us to build onto its solutions. As a CIO, that's critical when looking at strategic investments.”

— Rob Lloyd, CIO, City of Avondale

City of Fairfield

 

City of Fairfield virtualized business-critical applications with VMware to more efficiently deliver crucial City services

"Number one, in city government, our IT infrastructure continues to grow as people are laid off and departments want to automate more and more processes, which is the right way to go. The IT staff remains the same, but the infrastructure, the data, and the support continues to grow. So I'm trying to implement infrastructure that grows smarter, so we don’t have to work harder, but work smarter, so that we can do a lot more with less."

— Eudora Sindicic, Senior IT Analyst

City of Melrose

 

The City of Melrose uses vCloud Hybrid Service for backup, offloading test and development environments as well as creating new revenue streams.

“The difference between the vCloud Hybrid Service and a lot of the other providers that we looked at was the ability to move workloads around back and forth to and from the Cloud. The other providers simply didn't give us that capability."

— Jorge Pazos, Chief Information Officer in the City of Melrose

City of Melrose

 

Melrose IT leaders are reducing their total costs of supporting applications by embracing hybrid cloud computing built on VMware to become a specialized managed-services provider.

"It’s not that big of a stretch to get to that point where you say, 'I can do this for another city or town.' That was actually the thought process several years ago, as we started to do our own internal consolidation. The idea was that if we do it for ourselves, why can’t we do it for others."

— Jorge Pazos, Chief Information Officer in the City of Melrose

CloudOne delivers IBM Rational development tools in the cloud using an elastic, highly scalable, and economical SaaS model, powered by VMware.

We needed a Rational solution for development that was flexible and elastic; on that could manage the peak times, and the valleys where we do little development. By using CloudOne's Rational SaaS (Software as a Service) solution, we were able to easily adjust to varying demands; we didn't need to buy additional expensive tooling."

— Scott Farnum, Global Infrastructure Lab Manager

Discover why Columbia Sportwear chose vCloud Air and how they plan to deliver value back to the business.

"Columbia Sportswear has multiple use cases for vCloud Air. Not only between private cloud to public cloud but we also have about 46 remote branch offices and today we don’t have a business continuity or disaster recovery plan for those offices. So as the vCloud Air expands what we’re really looking for is DR-as-a-service and that backup plan for those smaller locations around the world."

— Suzan Pickett , Manager Systems Engineering, Columbia Sportswear

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.

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.

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.”
