North Carolina State University

 

Everywhere you look on today’s university campuses, you see devices—from laptops to smartphones to tablets. NC State University is no exception. It set the model for how to successfully embrace leading-edge technology and the bring your own device (BYOD) trend with the opening of the James B. Hunt Jr. Library in April 2013. In support of NC State University’s blended learning vision, VMware Horizon View enables anytime, anywhere, any-device access to applications and data, including demanding 3D graphics applications. Desktop services are available anywhere they are needed—on or off the campus—fully supporting a distributed computing environment and student, faculty, and staff device preferences.

“The Hunt Library is the visible lighthouse that says this is a technology leader and it’s everything from the high resolution rooms where you can do innovation to the virtualized desktops that allow students, faculty, and staff to use their services anywhere, anytime they need them.”

— Dr. Marc Hoit, Vice Chancellor for IT and CIO, NC State University

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

NTT Data

 

NTT Data North America uses VMware Technologies to Optimize Infrastructure and Deliver a Private Cloud

Headquartered in the United States, NTT Data North America provides consulting, staffing, outsourcing, and cloud services. In 2008, NTT Data North America’s India development center virtualized its infrastructure to reduce server sprawl and reclaim datacenter real estate. As cloud based infrastructure as a service models matured, NTT Data North America’s India development center decided to transform the way it provided infrastructure resources to developers. The business used VMware IT Business Management to optimize its infrastructure investments. By late 2015, the center was preparing to launch a private cloud based on VMware vCloud Suite into production.

“VMware IT Business Management also enables us to customize values to more accurately reflect the returns we are achieving on our investments. For example, I can calculate and input a higher value for a server purchased in 2015 than a server purchased in 2010, and add the necessary changes to the cost of a virtual machine being used by a particular business unit.”

— Parag Desai, Vice President, National Informatics Centre

NTT Neomeit

 

NTT Neomeit deploys, maintains and manages IT infrastructure for customers throughout the West Japan region. Desktop virtualization is a key part of its roadmap for improving security and management efficiency. However, the virtualization solution that the company initially selected failed to deliver the expected performance and stability, and was therefore jettisoned in favor of VMware Horizon View. The combination of VMware’s proven technology and comprehensive support has resulted in huge performance and stability gains, and significant reductions in operating costs

“With the support of VMware, we completely re-engineered our virtual desktop infrastructure. This delivered major improvements in performance and stability, resulting in a stress-free working experience for our users.”

— Katsuya Yoneda, Head of Virtualization Technology Centre

NTTコミュニケーションズ株式会社 (NTT Communications)

 

VMware NSX Reduces Migration Man-Hours by 70%

NTT Communications Corporation, a subsidiary of the NTT Group, provides a variety of IT services. Prominent among these are cloud services for global customers. To ensure cloud migrations with its Enterprise Cloud can be completed without requiring customers to change IP addresses, NTT Communications recently adopted the VMware NSX network virtualization platform. As a result, migrations typically now take 70% fewer man-hours to complete.

“The VMware NSX network virtualization platform seamlessly integrates cloud and on-premise resources. We found it significantly reduced the number of man-hours needed both to design cloud services for customers and to carry out the actual migration.”

— Kahoru Tsuda , Director, Cloud Services, NTT Communications Corporation

NX Systems

 

NX Systems’ journey to the Software-Defined Data Center

NX Systems discusses how it has improved the flexibility of its infrastructure to handle more transactions by using VMware vCloud Suite. The company has increased the number of transactions processed per second from two to over two hundred.

“When you have a team of four to five hundred in other companies, our department was about sixty. Obviously we had to do the economies of scale and scale it out properly. However, where before the stress of the organisation was on the IT department keeping up with the sales team’s direction, their promises, with management targets, etc. now that we are focused on the technology and we have brought it up to speed, we are lowering much of our involvement on operations and doing much more of the R&D, optimisation and re-factoring.”

— Jonathan Bowman, CTO, NX Systems

NX Systems

 

NX Systems talks about its journey with VMware so far and the solutions it is looking forward to deploying from the latest software-defined data center suite of products.

“The vSphere 6 announcement is very exciting for me – it provides two new features which we’ve been looking forward to for years – long distance vMotion and multi-core Fault Tolerance. VMware’s tighter integration between product components with vRealize automation operations and the SDDC are going to allow us to have a much more hands-off approach for the care and feeding of our infrastructure.”

— Matthew Sherian, Head of Engineering, NX Systems

NX Systems discusses its journey with VMware so far and the SDDC solutions it has deployed to help improve the scalability, continuity and flexibility of its payments platform

“vSAN is helping us to achieve the scalability that we always wanted to achieve. First we looked at the software-designed, and then we looked at the hardware design and the virtualization, and the three of them are coming nicely together to actually give the business what it wants.” “We offer our own financial services, but are also offering our own platform-as-a-service. So having vSAN looking at NSX and getting the automation portal together is helping us to bring up [our platform] in different locations, so even when customers out of the blue tell us they want our platform in a PCI environment, we use all the bits and pieces coming from the product to actually give them an environment that is fully controlled and still monitored by us.”

— Jonathan Bowman, CTO, NX Systems

Nyherji

 

Nyherji was looking for a way of simplifying its data centre infrastructure while being able to offer its customers a true hybrid cloud environment. Nyherji implemented VMware vSphere to virtualise its server estate, followed by VMware vCloud Suite to create an Infrastructure as a Service and hybrid cloud environment for its customers.

“VMware has enabled us to be the only managed service provider in Iceland which is able to offer our customers Infrastructure as a Service and the option of a hybrid cloud. VMware is incredibly well respected and was, in my view, the only company which we would feel comfortable partnering with. Not only does it have a strong heritage within virtualization and provisioning cloud environments, but we also feel that it offers us tremendous value for money both in terms of the ROI which we see from using these solutions and the VSPP licensing model it offers to us.”

— Helgi Björgvinsson, Solutions Architect, Nyherji

OGL Computer Services

 

OGL Computer Uses VMware App Volumes Solution to Grow Services and Save Costs in Citrix Environment

Small to medium-size enterprises in the United Kingdom rely on OGL Computer for a range of cloud services, on-premises solutions, and IT support. But OGL’s launch of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) services was stymied by the overhead of its Citrix solution and the limited functionality of other VDI delivery technologies. By implementing the VMware App Volumes™ application management solution, OGL built a multitenant VDI environment that delivers an extensive range of applications to customers in real time, with full application functionality on any device. It also reduces OpEx and CapEx.

“A really big thing for us is that App Volumes gives all applications 100 percent functionality, just as if they were installed natively to the underlying OS. App Volumes delivers huge advantages in provisioning, ongoing support, and customer satisfaction.”

— Mark Slater, Technical Architect, OGL Computer Services

— Christian Eychene, Vice President Orange Transformation, Orange Business Services

Oregon State University

 

The IT department at Oregon State University manages two open-use computer labs and one computer-equipped classroom. Because of financial restrictions, the university had originally purchased all of its servers with local storage, but that infrastructure could not handle the school’s growing workloads, and it required time-consuming upkeep. The university turned to the new VMware Virtual SAN product, which addresses these and other concerns while offering a simple and scalable solution that fits within its budget.

“Before Virtual SAN, we had no ability to scale. Now… it’s a piece of cake; if I want to add additional capacity, I just add an additional server. I don’t have to worry about whether my SAN can grow or not.”

— Alan Sprague, System Administrator, Oregon State University

OSIS

 

Perfect Health: OSIS Provides 100 Percent Uptime for Its Healthcare Clients with VMware

OSIS cannot tolerate downtime. Community health centers rely on OSIS to host their healthcare applications, and if those are unavailable, patient care will suffer. After struggling with outages for years on the Microsoft Hyper-V platform, OSIS migrated to VMware vSphere with Operations Management and achieved 100 percent uptime of IT systems.

“We had bad experiences with Hyper-V. Practically my first day on the job, one of my first questions was, ‘Why don’t we have VMware?'"

"Moving to VMware has freed up a lot of time for the entire team.”

— Rob Frilling, Infrastructure Team Lead and Senior Virtualization Engineer

Outdoor Research

 

Outdoor Research provides innovation and inspiration for the relentless adventurer, and develops innovative, functional, “bomb-proof” products that are beautiful in their efficiency and their simplicity. The company is ever-improving stewards of the environment, working to minimize its environmental impact and access and educational efforts of a variety of admirable nonprofit outdoor organizations.

“This has been an excellent learning experience for us with the VMware hosted solutions. We will likely leverage more opportunities in the future such as hosting more of our locally managed workloads, or the Disaster Recovery offering because of this experience. The VMware Sales team has been great to work with, the Technical Support team has been extremely responsive and we are on a ‘happy path’ for our hosting solution!”

— John Prince, IT Director, Outdoor Research

Oxford University

 

Oxford University is one of the oldest English speaking universities in the world. And it comprises 38 colleges and over 70 academic departments with around 21,000 students. Within the central IT services Oxford University already use vSphere and have done for a number of years. And recently moved to using vCloud Director and through the activate program with VMware moved to offering some services as a Hybrid Cloud Model to enable them to expand and use the capacity of other clouds.

Pacific Disaster Center

 

Pacific Disaster Center (PDC) uses information, science, and technology to enable effective evidence-based decision making and to promote disaster risk reduction (DRR) concepts and strategies. The Center provides multi-hazard warning and decision support tools to facilitate informed decision making and critical information sharing, supporting appropriate and effective actions. PDC also conducts advanced risk assessments that integrate hazard exposure with socio-economic factors for vulnerability and capacity, so the disproportionate impact on populations can be better understood, and then mitigated through improved preparedness and planning processes.

“vCloud Air has been great. Customer service has been wonderful along with technical support. The time to deploy applications has been halved and in some cases cut even further.”

— Randol Stancil, Network Engineer, Pacific Disaster Center
