Virtualization Cures Frederick Memorial Healthcare’s Server Ills
“It used to take two to three weeks to procure a server, rack it, cable it, and get the operating system laid down. We can now deploy a server in about 30 minutes. That’s just one of the ways that virtualization has been a big feather in the cap of the engineering department here at the hospital.”
Frimley Park Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
Frimley Park Hospital has virtualized all of its A&E department desktops using VMware View technology, creating a secure and easy to manage unified system, which has resulted in time savings and a drop in energy bills.
“We pride ourselves in providing our patients with the best possible care and so keeping abreast of the latest innovations and developments is vital to our success. When we virtualised our ED department’s desktops we freed up the IT team’s and clinical staff’s time, paved the way for major energy savings and improved security across the board”

Fujifilm Medical Systems Rolls Out SaaS Offering of Synapse® PACS, Synapse RIS, Disaster Recovery and Remote Image Archiving to Customers
“Many health care providers, in particular, smaller hospitals and specialized clinics, don’t have the necessary capital to invest in infrastructure or IT staff to support their PACS and medical information management systems. By providing Synapse PACS, Synapse RIS, data storage and archive as managed services, we’re satisfying a need that many of our customers had. Plus, we’ve created opportunities to attract new customers who might otherwise not have considered our Synapse products.”
Gangnam Severance Hospital
By moving to a VDI environment based on VMware View™, GSH was able to comply with new data security requirements and improve mobile access to medical information, without requiring costly hardware upgrades.
"We tested old PCs with a view to minimising our procurement spend – and to our surprise, we found no significant performance difference between these and new machines in a VDI environment. So we were able to reduce expenses by continuing to use the current equipment."
When IT becomes a matter of life or death
“VMware is the only provider of virtualization solutions that meets our requirements. As the data center for a hospital, we depend on the absolute reliability of our systems. This must not be compromised in any way regardless of savings measures.”
Hinduja Hospital embraces VMware Zimbra to improve collaboration and support world-class patient care
“We evaluated different solutions in addition to Zimbra. Though all the products offered all the features, we found that Zimbra was more user friendly, and quite easy to maintain. I think a lot of people will want to move to Zimbra when they understand the feature sets, simplicity and cost savings.”

The benefits are huge, including improved manageability, greater reliability, easier scaling, better leveraging of hardware and software investments, and lower cost.”
John C. Lincoln Health Network
Diagnosis: Overcrowded Data Center. Remedy: Virtualization
“Intel’s Xeon processors work with the VMware Infrastructure 3 platform to give us the maximum server consolidation per dollar. If our virtual infrastructure was a car, we’d be getting more than 100 miles per gallon.”

VMware vFabric tc Server Streamlines Application Deployment. John Muir Health is a not-for-profit health care organization that includes two of the largest medical centers in Contra Costa County, California – the Walnut Creek and Concord campuses of John Muir Medical Center.
“With tc Server, we have a more reliable and maintainable deployment strategy and it takes a lot less time. In the past, having to restart Tomcat, we could easily spend 30 minutes to an hour just setting up an instance and getting it running. Now, with tc Server, it’s a few clicks, and it takes less than 15 minutes to get an application up and running.”

Kindred Healthcare Continues Business Through Disaster
“As a healthcare provider, in the case of a disaster, it is of the utmost importance that Kindred Healthcare can continue to do business as usual. And that means making sure that our internal service providers can maintain operational readiness even during a disaster. We contract with SunGard to provide our IT staff with 250 offsite PCs in the case of a disaster. The hardware independence of VMware ACE gives our users seamless access to their specific ‘Kindred tool set,’ regardless of the x86 hardware SunGard provides us. Knowing our staff will be able to keep Kindred Healthcare doing business as usual, using their same day-to-day computing environment, is an enormous benefit.”

Lakeridge Health also implemented VMware vSphere® to bring its data center and Meditech clinical system hardware up to date. Benefits include improved patient privacy and hospital safety; improved physician satisfaction and remote access to systems; better data center performance; and hundreds of thousands of dollars of savings in hardware costs.
“When we evaluated the systems side-by-side on value—in terms of price for functionality—there was no question that VMware was the best choice. We’re talking about hundreds of thousands of dollars of difference.”
Laurens County Healthcare System
Laurens County Health Care System wanted to attest to Stage 1 of Meaningful Use by summer 2013 but knew it couldn’t deploy Meditech in a physical data center environment because of cost and reliability concerns.
“Physicians are very excited that they can use their own devices from anywhere to access Meditech and review EMRs [electronic medical records] and patient data without physically having to come into the hospital,”
Liverpool Women's NHS Foundation Trust
Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust virtualized 90 percent of its IT estate within a year when it achieved a 12 to 1 server consolidation ratio, avoiding £300,000 in extra server investment.
“Virtualizing with VMware has made us far more agile as an organization. We’re able to develop and deliver new services more quickly than ever before, which ultimately makes a huge difference to our patient care. Virtualization has also been the foundation for our move to a new cloud infrastructure through which we will deliver IT services to our own users and have the capability to provide similar services to other NHS trusts. With cost savings the number one priority for the public sector today, VMware has already helped us achieve huge reductions across the board in our organisation including a 75 per cent savings in power costs.”
Lotnicze Pogotowie Ratunkowe
Brak fizycznej możliwości zainstalowania kolejnych serwerów skłonił dział IT w Lotniczym Pogotowiu Ratunkowym do decyzji o próbie wprowadzenia wirtualizacji do swojej infrastruktury. Brak miejsca hamował nie tylko rozwój usług świadczonych wewnątrz Lotniczego Pogotowia Ratunkowego, ale także ograniczał możliwość wdrożenia sprzętu potrzebnego do prowadzenia testów. Prowadzenie testów na fizycznych maszynach samo w sobie jest utrudnione i nieefektywne - przy maszynach wirtualnych wykonanie klona działającej maszyny wirtualnej lub stworzenie nowego serwera z wykonanego wcześniej wzorca to kwestia paru kliknięć myszką. W wyniku wdrożenia rozwiązań VMware firma uzyskała możliwość dalszego rozwoju dzięki skonsolidowaniu swoich serwerów. Ułatwione też zostało zarządzanie wirtualnymi serwerami oraz skrócono czas reakcji na potrzeby biznesowe. Ograniczono także pobór prądu elektrycznego, którego konsumpcja przy takiej liczbie fizycznych serwerów byłaby znacznie wyższa.
“Gdy wybieraliśmy oprogramowanie firmy VMware do wirtualizacji serwerów, nie było dla niego żadnej rozsądnej, stabilnej alternatywy. Dziś jesteśmy zadowoleni z tej decyzji i nie zamienilibyśmy go na rozwiązanie konkurencyjne.”
