Airbus France

 

Airbus gives contractors increased access to Aircraft development applications through VMware Horizon with View

Airbus, a world’s leading commercial aircraft manufacturer, has deployed VMware Horizon with View to give its staff and contractors secure remote access to develop, test and support business applications.

Hartlepool College of Further Education

 

Hartlepool College saves £32k a year and increases student retention with VMware® Horizon™

Hartlepool College of Further Education was looking to improve the student and staff’s Virtual Desktop experience, in order to increase student retention, grow prospect numbers and offer remote working for the teaching and administrative staff.

To solve this, Hartlepool College deployed VMware Horizon to offer end-users a virtualized desktop solution. This would enable students to access their own applications from any virtual PC in the college, whilst greatly improving user experience and reliability and PC performance.

“You can’t overestimate the importance of technology within our college. For students, the level of IT we offer can make the difference between whether they stay on to graduate, or drop out. With our funding directly tied to student enrolment and course completion, we wanted to invest in an IT system that would impress prospects and enable current students to be more productive and achieve better grades. VMware Horizon did exactly that; while previously we spent all our time putting out fires and attempting to deal with the hundreds of help desk calls we received, we are now able to offer a smooth, reliable service for both students and staff. The IT department has gone from being an area of perennial complaint to one of the college’s most valuable assets. The feedback has been incredible and we have increased student retention rate.”

— Gerald Nicholson, IT Manager, Hartlepool College of Further Education

Rent-A-Center

 

VMware vRealize Suite Transforming IT as Rent-A-Center

Learn how Rent-A-Center, a leader in the rent-to-own space in North America, uses the vRealize Suite and automation and hybrid cloud management capabilities to empower and speed infrastructure delivery to modernize their IT infrastructure and point of sale software delivery.

“Before we had these tools (vRealize Suite and NSX), it took literally dozens of people a week to get a store deployed. Just because of all the back-end changes that had to occur. With the new tools, we’re able to deploy a hundred stores a day with minimal staff.

In addition to the time savings, with the use of the infrastructure tools that come with the vCloud Suite, we have an 85% (improvement) in infrastructure utilization, in time to deploy, in disk space utilization… it’s just been a tremendous savings in every dimension.”

— Michael Conroy, Senior Infrastructure Architect, Rent-A-Center

U.S. Government Agency

 

U.S. Government Agency Choses VMware Virtual SAN as the hyperconverged infrastructure platform for Cloud Service Delivery

A departmental headquarters of a U.S. government agency needed to evolve its partially virtualized IT environment into an efficient, low-cost infrastructure-as-a-service platform. Building on its success with VMware vSphere® server virtualization, the IT team virtualized its hardware-based storage tier with VMware Virtual SAN™ technology to reduce capital and administrative costs, simplify management, improve performance, and enhance scalability.

“With Virtual SAN being integrated into the hypervisor, I think it will scale easily. You just pick up another server and add some drives. This is going to fit our environment perfectly, especially as we start providing private cloud services.”

— IT Director, U.S. Government Agency,

Kroll Ontrack

 

Kroll Ontrack – Extending the Power of Virtualization with VMware

Kroll Ontrack, provider of technology-driven services and software, experienced challenges with their previous virtual desktop solution. After moving to VMware Horizon™ 6 Enterprise Edition, productivity has increased tremendously and “a few people can now do the job of 10 people.” The company is also planning to implement VMware Horizon® Air™ for cloud-hosted desktops and apps, as well as VMware NSX™ for Horizon® bringing speed and simplicity to VDI networking.

“Our partnership with VMware has been tremendous. Before we were using Horizon things would take a lot longer. We’d have to put a lot more resources in play where now, a few people can do the job of ten people.”

— Steve Rudzitis, System Administrator, Global Information Solutions

Dammam University

 

University of Dammam Delivers Centralized, On-Demand Desktops and Applications with VMware

University of Dammam labs contain over 2000 units of physical PC desktops and laptops. A lot of resources were wasted on maintenance and support of these devices as any application installation or hardware issues were needed to be solved individually. Lab arrangements every semester needed to be done physically, through ghost images - a process that normally took over 3 days to complete. Additionally, the PCs were idle most of the day and needed to be replaced every 3 years.

"VMware Horizon View was the most cost effective solution to create and deliver desktops to our faculty and students. With VMware, we have significant cost savings on licenses, hardware requirements, and staff resources. Students, faculty and administrators have noted the improvement in desktop performance and the quality of service with faster changes with VMware Horizon View."

— Dr. Saad AlAmri, CIO, Dammam University

Dammam University

 

University of Dammam Achieves Seamless Operations with VMware

The University of Dammam had a heterogeneous and fragmented IT infrastructure, containing servers from various vendors including Dell, HP and Sun. Each section of the university, including registration, transcripts, grading, was running on different servers. The server architecture was expensive to operate and maintain, with limited capability and computational resources. Upgrades were difficult and pricy, and with low system resources, there was no high availability. This together with an overall slow system caused less than satisfactory experience from the students and faculty.

“Through thorough investigation and comparison with competitors, Vmware was the only provider of end-to-end solutions, from cloud to the desktop, which met all the university’s requirements. The University of Dammam has a long standing relationship with VMware in Saudi Arabia with our first vSphere deployment, and we feel that VMware provides the best technology and service to enhance the productivity of the university as we reap the benefits of cloud computing.”

— Dr. Saad AlAmri, CIO, Dammam University
