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.

Northrim Bank

 

Northrim Bank believes that customers deserve the very highest level of service. VMware Horizon View is helping the bank meet its “Customer First Service” goals by enabling workforce mobility between headquarters and branch offices, and serving as a critical component of the bank’s “branch in a box” high-availability solution. Horizon View—together with Cisco UCS E-Series Servers and Atlantis Computing ILIO data-storage technologies—reduces costs, keeps the bank in compliance, and enables always-on access to applications for business-critical processes performed by management, bank tellers, and loan originators.

“With Horizon View, provisioning desktops, which used to be a very difficult, very manual task has become automated and it’s easy for us to deploy not just one or two, but 10 or 20 desktops within a few minutes. With the ability to have different snapshots, different versions and different gold images, we can tailor the user desktop to the business need.”

— Erick Stoeckle , Network and Systems Manager, Northrim Bank

WorldPay

 

WorldPay wanted to create a completely automated environment to help customers provision infrastructure in a fast-paced environment. The company has completely overhauled its IT infrastructure. A major element of this was deploying network virtualization from VMware. Its estate is now 100% virtual.

“In finance, time to market is of the essence. Our customers rely on us being able to provide them with applications and infrastructure to support their payments in the quickest timeframe. VMware’s network virtualization has been crucial in allowing us to not just be fast, but instant.”

— Iain Blunden, Head Of Global Core Platform Application Development, WorldPay

Two companies, Press Ganey and Planview, are using aggressive cloud-computing strategies to deliver applications better to their end users via a VMware portfolio of products.

ABN AMRO N.V. Singapore

 

ABN AMRO business leaders talk about how they started their virtualisation journey with consolidation and DR, which led then to the current vCloud Suite implantation and the conclusion that any application can be virtualized. In partnership with Professional Services, provisioning time is reduced, DR recovery time slashed, and significant CAPEX savings have been made.

“We as a bank are now convinced that our strategy of moving to a virtual data centre is actually enabling our business to be more efficient and more profitable, and will enable our business to grow at a faster pace because we can [quickly] deliver solutions to market.”

Planview, Inc.

 

As an early adopter of VMware vCloud Air, Planview is looking to leverage hybrid cloud capabilities to support their DR strategy.

— Jerry Sanchez, VP Hosting Operations, Planview

ABN AMRO N.V. Singapore

 

ABN AMRO's CTO, Dirk Sibiet, and the CCO of Private Banking, Hans-Peter Borgh, discuss how virtualising the end-user environment boosts security & compliance, significantly reduces costs, and opens up new opportunities for Relationship Managers to visit ABN AMRO Private Bank customers anywhere, anytime.

"Because at ABN AMRO Private Banking we have a lot of relationship managers who are private bankers and who meet their clients outside the offices. We will now be using virtual desktops to make our client conversations so much more relevant, by allowing our bankers, when they are on the road, to access the information they need and the tools they need to help our clients understand their [own] financial situation and financial opportunities better."

Using VMware based virtualization, Provident wanted to reduce at least 40 percent of the floor area occupied by the servers. Nearly three years after the implementation of the project our server room now contains 65 servers operating on 4 multi-processor VMware nodes, which means that the number of our servers increased by more than 50 percent while they still have free base area. Provident has also used the VMware solution to virtualize business critical processes such as the Dynamics AX enterprise management system that supports bookkeeping, the Nexon HR payroll system as well as the arrears management and statement creation system. Strategic objective for VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager is introduced, which for critical servers can operate in two locations simultaneously, making it one fails, virtually seamless business continuity is provided. In order to design host server configurations, Provident used the Capacity Planner tool of VMware. The VMware-based virtualization and achieved impressive results in a very positive experience for all Provident will continue to introduce new services and virtual environments. The parent company has already started on the project, which aims to virtualize the central accounting system.

"VMware has already proven its value a thousand times in systems like those that we have also been planning to virtualize. We regarded this as an assurance that VMware technology would allow us to implement our project at the lowest possible risk level. Experience gained from more than two years of live operation allows us to confirm that our decision to opt for the virtualization solution of VMware was the right one, and we are perfectly satisfied with it."

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.
