Queens University of Charlotte


Queens University of Charlotte and VMware vCloud Air

What began as a small college for women in 1857 has evolved into a co-ed, comprehensive, master's-level university with a commitment to liberal arts and professional studies. Today, Queens University of Charlotte in North Carolina serves approximately 2,700 undergraduate and graduate students through its six accredited schools: the College of Arts and Sciences, the McColl School of Business, the Blair College of Health (including the Presbyterian School of Nursing), the Cato School of Education, the Knight School of Communication and the Hayworth School of Graduate & Continuing Studies.

With a mission to provide a transformative educational experience and a global perspective, Queens University of Charlotte needs a platform that allows students to log in from anywhere, at any time to support its global learning and understanding initiatives—and that’s where VMware comes in.

VMware used vCloud Air to move the University’s production servers, without interruption to the domain controller for access management, ensuring Microsoft was continuously available for teachers and students to access emails. VMware vCloud Air was also used to host the University’s main website as well as a resource DNS server to be available 24/7 to alumni, prospective students, and donors.

Using vCloud Air Disaster Recovery, the University was able to host some of the apps they weren’t ready to move to the cloud like a CRM for recruiting students, fundraising servers, and other ERP systems.

“Queens University of Charlotte is growing and changing significantly with new programs and with new methods of teaching and delivering our mission to serve rather than to be served. And we require partners’ who can help us in that mission and VMWare has been one of those partners.”

— Brian Baute, Chief Information Officer (CIO), Queens University of Charlotte

University of New Mexico


University of New Mexico Improves Security and Compliance with NSX and vRealize Automation

Watch and learn how the University of New Mexico uses VMware vRealize Automation and NSX to provide a self-service environment where departments can build out compute and network environments that meet their distinct needs. vRealize Automation and NSX allows all this to happen even in the face of regulatory regimes like HIPAA and FERPA. Listen to UNM's Director of Computing Platforms talk about the success they've had with VMware's Software Defined Data Center vision and products.

“For all the benefits that (vRealize) Automation provides: reduced maintenance and operations, more consistency, what we didn’t have were the things to support multi-tenancy, to be able to automate as part of the deployment of systems through LoboCloud. It really became a no-brainer to implement NSX.”

— Rob Lloyd, CIO, City of Avondale



Cognizant in India brings simplicity and agility to its IT life

Cognizant (NASDAQ: CTSH) is a leading provider of information technology, consulting, and business process outsourcing services, dedicated to helping the world’s leading companies build stronger businesses. When assessing Cognizant’s IT environment, it was clear from the results that it was growing at an unsustainable pace. The company had several data centers, packed with physical servers, storage, and networking elements. The company needed to deliver a more agile IT environment, to drive innovation and next-generation cloud services. To achieve this, Cognizant chose to partner with VMware to offer Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) to internal customers. Post virtualization, the business has seen server utilization rates double to 80 percent, a reduction in physical server numbers, and a defined roadmap for software-defined data center adoption.

“Our plan is to build our IT around a SDDC enabled by leveraging our partnership with VMware. Short-term goals include moving to virtualized storage and virtualized networking. Our relationship with VMware will continue to bring value to the Cognizant business.”

— P.R.Devaraj, Global Head-Network and Systems Services, Cognizant

California Natural Resources Agency


California Natural Resource Agency (CNRA) and VMware vCloud Air

As the world’s eighth largest economy with the largest parks system and the largest water delivery system in the United States, California is more like a small country than a state. Managing California’s precious resources—from its coastlines to its parks, fish, wildlife, energy sources, and water— is the responsibility of the 30 organizations of the California Natural Resources Agency (CNRA). They depend on real-time data and system access to make decisions and respond quickly to disasters like flood, fire, drought, and earthquakes. CNRA’s mission is to restore, protect and manage the state's natural, historical and cultural resources for current and future generations. This responsibility impacts not only the people of California, but people around the world.

The goal of CNRA’s IT organization is to provide timely information and services to their departments so that they can operate at the speed of business without technology being a constraint.

CNRA is currently using VCloud Air VPC and vCloud Air Disaster Recovery as a service for their critical applications such as Fire, water, waste, etc., but also for their department tenants within their data center. They are putting out their critical tier one through three applications in the vCloud Air Disaster Recovery as a service area for protection and front-ending that with the vCloud Air offering to run their core applications.

“Our experience with VMware vCloud Air has been great. We have actually worked with some great technicians at VMware who helped us onboard the service, who helped us get everything set up and be up and running and getting the plumbing for all of our applications and test it out and make sure that it all runs fine. It’s one of those things that we found pretty painless and I would recommend it to just about anybody and any company.”

— Tony Morshed, CTO, California Natural Resource Association (CNRA)
