Most of Lumeta’s customers are in the Fortune 500 or 100. They also have large Federal customers. Lumeta helps organizations and their customers understand their network architecture and network segmentation by providing a cloud-based software solution that uses VMWare vCloud Air as its delivery vehicle.

The technology initiatives that Lumeta has put in place now are moving their support and IT Operations into a more virtual environment. They have moved their go-to-market to more of a virtual delivery through VMWare products and services. And helping drive business innovation through the partnership with VMware has been impactful in allowing them to provide situational awareness products through vCloud Air.

"There is definitely added pressure these days around response time, security, and availability. And the old adage of ‘pick two of the three’ really doesn’t work anymore. So we have to be quick to respond, quick to deliver--and at the same time—provide a secure solution. So really, that’s where the VMware relationship with Lumeta comes in and makes us more agile and more responsive.”

vCloud Air represents an opportunity to create synergies between existing vSphere deployments and the investments SAIC has already made in operational procedures. For the company, the solution is familiar, less expensive and faster to deploy than other cloud service provider options—all of which leads to increased availability of services for SAIC clients and higher customer satisfaction.

The addition of VMware vCloud Government Services provided by Carpathia makes it easier to address security concerns while offering hybrid cloud services to public sector clients. SAIC sees vCloud Government Services as being almost the perfect platform for delivering enterprise IT that includes cloud but also recognizes that there’s a much broader set of services that have to be delivered in the IT portfolio.

"At SAIC, we use vCloud Air because we already have a large investment in vSphere technology. It was very straight forward for us to migrate our IT Services from our existing virtualization environment into a vCloud Air Platform. Additionally, we have a large base of trained personnel on VMWare Management technologies making it very easy for us to integrate our technology with VMWare's Cloud Service Provider offerings known as vCloud Air."

"SAIC sees vCloud Government Services as being a very viable Cloud Services Platforms for the entire US Government. It's one of the reasons we are heavily investing in becoming very technically proficient and building solutions on top of it. The Federal App Accredited Cloud Provider environment that VMWare offers provides a migration path for vSphere users today which is a large portion of our customer base that makes it straight forward to integrate with existing management solutions and to migrate workloads back and forth between that Fed App Accredited Community Cloud and their existing private side Cloud environment."

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

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
