Chittenden Bank

 

Chittenden Bank Prepares To Grow Its Business— Not Its IT Staff—With Virtualization

“Our ‘go-to’ environment is a virtual platform based on VMware technology and Intel processors. We look at an application and decide why it shouldn’t be virtualized, rather than why it should.”

— Doug Nelson, Network Engineer

Learn how VMware vCloud customers like Columbia Sportswear, Catholic Health Initiatives, MicroStrategy and ABM Industries are using VMware cloud management solutions to efficiently provision virtual machines, improve performance and reliability within their IT environment, comply with industry-specific standards such as HIPAA, and report accurately the costs of processing IT requests within the organization.

Cornerstone Community Bank

 

Cornerstone Community Bank chose VMware for its server virtualization and need for High Availability. 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.”

— Randy Dover, VP & Information Technology Officer

Cornerstone Home Lending

 

Due to the poor Hyper-V experience, Cornerstone launched a thorough investigation into competitive virtualization offerings that would provide a stable and reliable architecture. In the end, the team chose VMware. Cornerstone implemented VMware vSphere with Operations Management, deploying 45 hosts and almost 100 virtual machines to provide visibility into past and present asset health through a unique, centralized console, and enable superior platform-wide management.

“For the first time ever we’re able to capacity plan, to look ahead and forecast what we’re going to need for the next one, three, or five years. This allows us to act proactively and give the business a clear model of projected costs along with a timeline. Ability to forecast capacity usage has changed the way Cornerstone calculates IT budgets. It gives us the ability to invest in IT the proper way.”

— Ricky Caldwell, Director of Server Operations, Cornerstone Home Lending, Inc.

DaiWa Capital Markets Hong Kong Limited

 

Daiwa Capital Markets Hong Kong had rapidly expanded its datacenter to host more than 500 physical servers, which was becoming increasingly difficult to manage. The company wanted to ensure high availability of its financial services applications and deliver a disaster recovery solution that would eliminate downtime. After considering solutions from Microsoft® and Red Hat®, the organization chose to work with VMware® partners HP® and Systex International® to design and implement a virtual infrastructure using VMware vCenter Server™ 5.1 to provide centralized management for VMware vSphere® 5.1 Enterprise Plus and high availability through vSphere vMotion®.

"Through VMware we have achieved 80 percent utilization of server resources. This means we can run significantly more server resources without increasing energy consumption."

— Joseph Chung, Head of Infrastructure

DECA Financial Services

 

DECA Financial Services Cuts 91% of First Year Infrastructure Costs in the BlueLock Cloud

Diákhitel Központ Zrt.

 

Student Loan Direct is an easy-to-use, user-friendly portal that also provides help and information functions. It enables users to create correct and properly completed documents required for the loan process. They can complete their loan applications and data update forms, view their loan agreements, balances, and repayment history, exchange messages with the Student Loan Center, and communicate using this channel instead of postal mail. The launch of the Student Loan Direct is a success story: 50 percent of all new loan applications already arrived through the portal started in September 2011. Since the virtualization of Student Loan Center, there were no unplanned server downtimes, and the server room requires less cooling and energy. The fault tolerance of the VMware-based environment, tested before implementing the Student Loan Direct portal, showed that operation continuity can be ensured if combined with regular data backups. The introduction of 7x24 service availability requires setting up a backup data center that Student Loan Center will implement using VMware’s disaster recovery solution.

"Using VMware's virtualization solution, we have set up a server environment with high-availability and load balancing to serve our Student Loan Direct portal. So our customers can rely on our services around the clock, 7 days a week."

— István Gál, IT Manager, Student Loan Center Plc.

— Tirus Mutoru, Head of IT, Housing Finance Bank

Hungarian National Bank (Magyar Nemzeti Bank)

 

Az MNB szervervirtualizációs projektje a VMware ESX Server 3.5-ös verziójával indult, de a platform legújabb, 4.0-s verzióra történő frissítése a HP-val kötött support szerződésnek is része. A virtualizált szerverek felügyeletére a jegybank a VMware vCenter megoldását vezette be. Az MNB a hardvererőforrások átlagosan 70 százalékos kihasználását tűzte ki célul, ami a projekt eredményeként a gyakorlatban megvalósult. A jegybank a VMware virtualizációs megoldásával ötödére csökkentette a szervergépek számát, amivel arányosan csökkent a kiszolgálók hely- és a hűtésigénye is. A magasabb rendelkezésreállású hardverkiszolgálók és az egységesen felügyelhető virtuális szerverek az üzemeltetés és karbantartás hatékonyságát is hasonló mértékben növelték, így az ezzel összefüggő költségek is csökkentek. Ezzel az MNB a VMware alapú virtualizációs projekt valamennyi sikerkritériumát eredménnyel teljesítette.

“Due to the extra importance of the national bank’s role, a virtualisation solution already well-proven in the market and providing high standards of support and having adequate references in Hungary could be considered only. VMware’s virtualisation technology met these strict requirements.”

— Gyula Pap, IT Director, Hungarian National Bank
