Langs Building Supplies Empowers Workforce with VMware Horizon, NVIDIA GRID, and the Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform

Langs Building Supplies is a leading supplier of timber and hardware products and a fabricator of roof trusses, wall frames, and door and window joinery for the construction industry. Based in Queensland, Australia, Langs is privately owned with a global workforce of nearly 400 employees. To better support its global workforce, Queensland-based Langs Building Supplies recently moved to an integrated virtual IT infrastructure using VMware Horizon, NVIDIA GRID Cards, and Nutanix Converged Infrastructure.

“The whole engagement – from the very first meeting to the proof of concept – was simply fantastic. They bent over backwards to support us. It’s very rare to find a product that actually does what it says it’s going to do. We found that with Nutanix and VMware.”

— Matthew Day, IT Manager, Langs Building Supplies

Large U.S. Financial Institution

 

A large financial institution deployed the VMware vCenter Log Insight solution on four nodes supporting 450 hosts and more than 12,000 virtual machines. The solution manages millions of log messages every day. It replaced a homegrown log management environment that was inefficient and didn’t provide adequate visibility into the organization’s reporting infrastructure. Now, with the Log Insight solution, this organization can resolve challenges quickly and spot latent problems before they cause infrastructure issues that impact critical business applications.

“vCenter Log Insight is our primary troubleshooting tool. Root-cause analyses … are 50 percent faster, just given that we don’t have to wade through as many logs to find answers.”

— Assistant Vice President of Virtualization, Large U.S. Financial Institution

Laurens County Healthcare System

 

Laurens County Health Care System wanted to attest to Stage 1 of Meaningful Use by summer 2013 but knew it couldn’t deploy Meditech in a physical data center environment because of cost and reliability concerns.

“Physicians are very excited that they can use their own devices from anywhere to access Meditech and review EMRs [electronic medical records] and patient data without physically having to come into the hospital,”

— Gina Driggers, IT Director at Laurens County Healthcare System

Maricopa County Sheriff's Office

 

Maricopa County Sheriff's Office uses VMware Horizon to optimize access, productivity and response in their 911 dispatch center, while maintaining high levels of criminal justice information (CJIS) security.

"One of the biggest benefits we’re recognizing from Horizon is flexibility and the ease of management. There is no learning curve so it was really easy to adopt. When it was time to migrate over, it was just a simple matter of standing up the new virtual desktops in the new center without any interruption."

— Chip Lemons, Senior Lead Systems Admin, Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office

Mecklenburg County

 

Mecklenburg County, North Carolina chose to implement Horizon View and has reaped cost savings and avoidance of $1,000 per user in anticipated upgrades and $1.2 million annually in operation costs. Their unique implementation has dramatically increased the efficiency of their family services case workers and enabled them to add a layer of security while in the field.

"The Horizon product has revolutionized the way we do everything. We were just notified that we won the 2013 Digital Government Achievement award for our one to one initiative; one person one device device based on VMWare."

— Cliff Dupuy, Technical Services Director

Mecklenburg County

 

The Mecklenburg County technical services team chose to deploy VMware Horizon View—over Citrix and Microsoft solutions—to securely mobilize and empower nearly 6,000 county employees. As part of the North Carolina county’s “One Person, One Device” initiative, executives, Youth and Family Services social workers, Park and Recreation employees, and Food Service inspectors use tablets and virtual desktops to securely access and input information on the go. Now more productive employees better reach and serve constituents while saving the county an average of $3.2 million per year.

"The benefits of using VMware Horizon View are in hardware cost and time savings. It equals out to be about $3.2 million savings per year for the organization. That's money that we can put back into services for the citizens of Mecklenburg County."

— Cliff DuPuy, Director of Technical Services Mecklenburg County, North Carolina

Mecklenburg County

 

Mecklenburg County chose Horizon View, over Citrix and Microsoft, to securely mobilize and empower nearly 6,000 county employees. This video takes a deeper look into Mecklenburg County's field workers, including Parks and Recreation and Youth and Family Services, who leverage mobile devices to access their virtual desktops while traveling throughout the county. Now they can securely access and input information on the go, to better protect and serve the community.

"Social workers have told us that getting immediate access to their applications and replacing their bulky paper case files with a small tablet has improved their safety. Without all of that paperwork, their risk of being targeting is lower. They enjoy coming to work more now. They say their travel time has been greatly reduced while their productivity and safety has been significantly increased."

— Cliff Dupoy, Director of Technical Services

Menlo College

 

Menlo College Leverages VMware Horizon Desktop Virtualization to Support Multiple Use Cases

Menlo College, located in the heart of Silicon Valley, uses VMware Horizon virtual desktops for a variety of use cases including supporting computer labs, classroom instruction, financial administration, recruiting, and on-boarding new faculty and staff.

— Allan Chen, CIO, Menlo College

Meritrust Credit Union

 

Faced with an aging physical IT infrastructure, Meritrust Credit Union sought a more stable foundation for its business-critical applications—especially for its Oracle database, which is central to its operations. By choosing Oracle RAC on FlexPod with VMware from Cisco and NetApp, the company realized better availability, performance and cost efficiency than it could achieve otherwise.

“The integration between VMware and the FlexPod platform from Cisco and NetApp is amazing. Every aspect has been designed to work together, which takes a lot of the guesswork out of everything from configuration to troubleshooting.”

— Cliff Shoff, Director of Information Technology, Meritrust Credit Union

Millennium Pharmacy Systems

 

Learn how Millennium Pharmacy has used advanced IT management and operational efficiency processes and systems to keep applications up to date, compliant, performant, and protected.

"Typically, if you're moving from a physical environment, VMware is a lot more efficient and it’s really kind of surprising seeing some of the reports that come back from vCenter Operations Management that tell you, realistically, you are running this server with six gigabytes of memory, but you are only really using one."

— Leon Ravenna, Vice President of IT and Operations and Information Security Officer

Millennium Pharmacy Systems

 

Millennium upgraded from VMware vSphere to vSphere with Operations Management to overcome growing economic pressures to drive down costs and inefficient management of IT infrastructure. The team deployed vSphere with Operations Management within a day and soon discovered that every VM was oversized.

“It was almost jaw dropping in terms of the memory and resources we would get back by using vSphere with Operations Management.”

— Leon Ravenna, VP of Infrastructure & Operations, Information Security Officer

MIT Media Lab

 

MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, Massachusetts is one of the many independent research labs within MIT. During VMworld 2014, Michail Blatsas, who runs the group that takes care of computing infrastructure for the lab, talked about how they're exploring the use of cloud and hybrid cloud and seeing the benefits of VMware vCloud Air Disaster Recovery.

“A solution like the vCloud Air allows us to look at a real disaster scenario, where something really catastrophic happens at the campus, and we use it to keep certain critical databases, including all the access tools around them, in a farther-away location.”

— Michail Bletsas, Director of Computing, MIT Media Lab
