Emerson Innovation Center
Emerson Innovation Center - Pune, adopts VMware Virtualization to help consolidate physical servers while saving costs, power and cooling
"We benefitted from VMware virtualization while migrating physical servers to the virtual environment where we did not need to reconfigure a server on the new virtual environment. We could move physical servers to the virtual environment quickly with minimal / zero downtime."
TUI Infotec explain the benefits or a Technical Account Manager (TAM)
“With the TAM program we have the ability to join beta programs so we are early adopters for some of the solutions. We can then go to our business to show them how that can fit for the future and how that fits for their business.”
YHMAN’s ‘Shared Virtual Date Centre (SVDC) Pathfinder’ Project would provide a secure shared virtual server and storage service, leveraging its regional Data Centres and existing resilient network. In order to meet these objectives, YHMAN chose VMware technology to run at the heart of Pathfinder. The first phase of the project utilises VMware vSphere technology to virtualise its infrastructure and allow for the consolidation and sharing of resources in a number of regional data centres in operation across the network. Having a secure, multi-tenancy environment was vital and YHMAN again turned to VMware for the solution, using vShield Edge to create secure, hardware-independent perimeters around its virtual data centre environments.
“VMware’s technology has played a critically important role in the development of our industry leading shared virtual data centre service. This not only offers the potential for cutting costs, through rationalisation and consolidation, but facilitates a reduction in our carbon footprint and an improvement in service levels for our clients. The vShield products, in particular, have been at the heart of our ability to deliver the security required of a shared service offering in the educational sector.”

Foley & Lardner LLP
Foley leveraged VMware View to offer desktops as a service. The new architecture also enables a bring-your-own-device mobile computing model so that end users, instead of IT, now procure and set up mobile devices.
“Another great benefit that VDI brings to the Bring Your Own Device program at Foley is that the virtual desktop resides in the data center behind our secure infrastructure so when attorneys connect there's very little information that has to go back to the endpoint device and that's a great security model for the era of BYOD."
Working with a Technical Account Manager reduces turnaround times for virtualization projects and delivers cost savings by eliminating the risk of poor investment decisions.

“Moving to a VMware hybrid cloud infrastructure has enabled us to improve the efficiency of our testing processes, giving us more time to test our games and provide a higher quality product to our customers. The Colt vCloud solution allows us to manage our infrastructure availability and costs far more easily, allowing us to scale up capacity when needed and reduce when not, and operate in a far more cost efficient way.”
Acorda Therapeutics, Inc.
Learn how Acorda Therapeutics successfully implemented a strategic disaster recovery (DR) capability to protect its highly virtualized IT operations and data.
"One of the most prominent changes is recovery time, especially with this technology such as virtualization using VMware. You no longer need to restore from physical tape and see recovery times of upwards of 24 hours, something that we hadn’t seen until recently. We implemented Site Recovery Manager (SRM) from VMware and we can now do that same recovery in about four hours."
