"Security is very important to us and we made a significant investment in 3 specific areas: password security, date encryption, and the environment. That's why decided to partner with VMware utilizing VMware's vCloud Air Service. We were looking for an environment where it could be single tenant and where we have dedicated resources. Given the high bar we have set for ourselves and our users, vCloud Air was the only choice. Partnering with VMware and utilizing their vCloud Air Service provides our users and us that level of trust we need."

University of Massachusetts Lowell

 

UMass Lowell Uses Virtual Desktop Solution Designed for High-Performance Graphics to Drive Academic Accessibility and Success

University of Massachusetts Lowell is one of five campuses in the University of Massachusetts system. With a rapidly growing engineering program and an enrollment approaching 20,000 students by 2018, UMass Lowell needed more classroom space.

At the same time, the university wanted to make engineering education more accessible. In the past, courses required expensive workstations or laptops as well as software licenses, creating a barrier to entry for some students.

“All the students in the class can now pull out a device and start practicing what they just learned. The time from lecture to practice was reduced from weeks to seconds.”

— Steve Athanas, Director of platforms and systems engineering

Across all their companies, Clear Tec hopes to that by the end of the year, they will have more than 6 of their companies fully on-boarded and using their cloud solution.

The IT team is using vCloud Air Dedicated Cloud to extend their own data center, get multiple virtual centers for each of the business units and have the ability to move their workloads especially key apps on premises and off premises as they choose. VMware cloud has helped them focus IT on delivering applications that the business and their patients need. It has changed how the companies think about expanding the business to be more than just 8 which is a solid IT foundation for future growth.

"VMware vCloud Air is very important to us right now. With us being new in the market and trying to get into the market space very quickly, vCloud Air provides us the ability to stand up environments very quickly. VMware vCloud Air gives us the ability just to be able to snapshot our environment, roll it out and instead of months or weeks of having to build equipment, we can be live in 2-3 days with the environment we have currently built. To the customers the vCloud Air is important to them, because from the time we go from an RFP to implementation most of the turn-around are less than a month.”

Queens University of Charlotte

 

Queens University of Charlotte and VMware vCloud Air Disaster Recovery

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.

“VMware vCloud Air allows us to provide anytime, anywhere service for all of our faculty, staff and students in a way that they can trust and they know that it will be available no matter where they are or no matter what’s happening with our on-campus environment.”

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

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.”

Cognizant

 

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)
