Vancis B.V.

 

Vancis explains how, through its role as a vCAN partner, it is able to deliver virtualized infrastructures to educational institutions in the Netherlands, helping them lower their operational costs and allocate cost savings elsewhere.

“We use the vCloud Air Network for virtualizing infrastructures and renewing customer data centers by bringing them virtually, and lowering the operational costs of their IT.”

“VMware helps us with growing our business by showing us new products in advance, giving us competitive prices so we are good in the market, and helping and helping my technicians run VMware solutions better, so we can help our customers.”

“We are looking to renew our desktop proposition using VMware Horizon suite and making our data center more software-defined, based on VMware solutions.”

— Ramon de Jong, Manager of Cloud Services, Vancis B.V

Clouditalia

 

Clouditalia discusses its role as a premium vCAN partner, and how it uses VMware solutions to enable its telco customers to keep their business operations running at all times.

“Flexibility and reliability are two of the main issues our customers want to use our cloud offering for. VMware is the leader in private cloud data centers and is, at the same time, a leader in the public cloud. Thanks to the connectors that VMware technology has given to its ecosystem of partners, we have the ability to easily manage hybrid cloud environments. It’s the best answer to the reliability and flexibility needs of our customers. We’ve increased revenues by 10% since introducing their technology into the company.”

— Francesco Baroncelli, Director, Market & Operations, Clouditalia

The Jockey Club

 

The Jockey Club details how, by working with VMware vCAN partner Carrenza, it has used vCloud Air to help it manage variable workloads, disaster recovery and back office IT.

“We have a need to provide Disaster Recovery services cost-effectively, and we don’t feel it’s appropriate for the partner to be delivering those services to us without relying on what we know is a great infrastructure that sits behind it, which is delivered by VMware.”

“Using VMware’s public cloud enables us to manage the unpredictable.”

— David Dommet, Group IS Director, The Jockey Club

Carrenza

 

Carrenza explains how it uses the vCloud Air Network to provide guaranteed scalability and availability of its resources to its customers.

“The vCloud Air proposition gives us an ability to scale worldwide. By using vCloud Air, we can guarantee the resources to our customers.”

“Carrenza can build to our customers’ steady state, and rent the peaks and troughs in demand from vCloud Air.”

“This allows Carrenza to deliver a SaaS-like service to our SVs, allowing them to compete in their markets much more effectively.”

— Matthew McGrory, Managing Director, Carrenza

CommuniGator

 

CommuniGator explains how it uses vCloud Air technology to underpin its SaaS marketing automation software with Disaster Recovery, reliable infrastructure and the ability to scale itself on demand.

“The vCloud Air platform gives us – probably for the first time – a really cost-effective platform to deliver Disaster Recovery."

“The real USP around vCloud Air is the cost benefit for us in terms of not having to duplicate costs across the board.”

— Aaron Yates, Owner, CommuniGator

Nexinto

 

Nexinto discusses its role as a premium vCAN partner, and how it uses VMware solutions to enable customers to keep their business operations running at all times.

“For Nexinto customers, it’s key that the business is always on, as every minute the customer is not available, they are losing a lot of money. So the vCAN program is providing us with the opportunity to cover such challenges without investing in fixed platforms, and gives us the capability of an excellent OPEX model.”

“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.”

— Andre Neumann, Head of Supplier Management, Nexinto

Telefonica Spain

 

Telefónica discusses how vCloud Air Network has enabled its Cloud Services targeted at large enterprise to provide customers with the flexibility and control to scale up their applications in the public or private cloud, depending on their needs, and use of its disaster recovery capabilities

“With our virtual data centre, we have moved all the functionality we used to provide as a hosting provider to the cloud. What previously used to be complex projects can now be self-provisioned by the customer. With an active-passive environment, you can have an automated and predictable Disaster Recovery with refined point objectives of ten minutes, and recovery times of less than an hour.”

“As VMware has such a strong presence in customer data centres, for us it was very clear that having a service based in VMware [technology] would give customers a lot of confidence when moving their applications to the cloud.”

— Antonio Oriol, Global CMO, Cloud Services, Telefónica

— Jarin Dykstra, IT Director, Seventy Seven Energy

State Department of Health

 

State’s Department of Health Deploys VMware Virtual SAN to Increase Storage Capacity and Performance

The Bureau of Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) plays an important role in health departments’ mission of delivering healthy outcomes to all of their state’s inhabitants. Thus, when an aging, out-of-capacity storage solution began to hinder efficient delivery of the bureau’s services in one state, the Department of Health (DOH) there needed to take action. To do so, it turned to VMware Virtual SAN™, which delivered more capacity for less cost and also improved application and system performance.

“In the past, we were always worried about over-provisioning, but with the thin provisioning afforded by VMware Virtual SAN we’ve gained so much space, this is simply not an issue.”

— Network Administrator, State Department of Health

Wachter, Inc.

 

Wachter Reduces Storage Costs, Improves Performance and Simplifies Administration with VMware Virtual SAN

Wachter, Inc. urgently needed more data storage for their VMware virtual environment at its Lenexa, Kansas headquarters. By replacing the existing server hardware with three new Cisco nodes, packed with 45TB of storage and running VMware Virtual SAN™ software, the company reduced the capital costs of storage, improved storage performance, simplified system administration, and accelerated IT response to new business requirements.

"Most of the traditional SAN options would have given us 15 to 20 terabytes at a cost of somewhere between $5 and $7 a gigabyte. With the new Cisco servers and Virtual SAN we got cost savings at the rate of 1/5th of the traditional SAN, with 45 terabytes that cost less than $1.50 a gigabyte. It was a massive difference."

— Carl Shriver, IT Operations Manager, Wachter, Inc.

Baystate Health

 

VMware NSX Gives Baystate Health Security & Agility

Baystate Health found that VMware NSX is the model for healthcare networking, allowing them to be both highly secure and extremely agile in a rapidly changing environment.

— Mike Feld, Interim CTO, Baystate Health

Seventy Seven Energy Inc. (77NRG)

 

Seventy Seven Energy goes 100% cloud in only four months with VMware and AirWatch Solutions

In the volatile oil and gas industry, Seventy Seven Energy (77NRG) needed a virtualization solution that could scale quickly to support thousands of users under a tight deadline. With a small IT staff and limited resources, the company wanted a complete cloud-hosted solution.

“VMware Horizon Air enables employees to access their desktop from any location, even at Grandma's house. I've had employees approach me to tell me how great it is that they can get home and start working exactly where they left off in the field. And they can use the same familiar desktop they have on other devices. This has been the key for users – they love it.”

— Jarin Dykstra, Sr. Manager, Information Systems, Seventy Seven Energy

University of Aberdeen

 

University of Aberdeen improves student study experience with any device, anywhere learning through VMware® Horizon™

The University of Aberdeen opted for VMware Horizon in order to improve the experience for its students and to establish a virtual desktop solution which provides them with the ability to access university applications and perform their studies from remote locations.

“Student satisfaction is very much at the heart of everything we do – and we’re always looking for ways to improve the services we can offer to them. We know that technology is more important to students than it ever has been before, so can play a crucial role in whether or not they enjoy their time here. Thanks to VMware Horizon, our students have technology that suits their needs, with the ability to study from anywhere and via the device of their choosing. We’re already getting great feedback in our internal student surveys and expect this to carry on through to external rankings, which ultimately will help to attract more students to come here – as well as the very best academics.”

“Students use a full range of devices at their disposal – iPads, iPhones, Laptops, Android Tablets. The VMwware solution has enabled them to do their learning at any time, from any place, anywhere. Previously they were limited to studying on campus, but now they have software that gives them access to everything in their own time so they can study anywhere they want to.”

— Ian Rowley, Desktop Manager, IT Services, University of Aberdeen

— Tom White, Enterprise Infrastructure Director, ESC Lab Sciences

Kongsberg Kommune

 

The Municipality of Kongsberg experienced that the working platforms for students and employees were inefficient and poorly secured, and that time consuming systems prevented a seamless use of necessary digital tools. By implementing cloud technology from VMware, the IT department experienced an administration that demanded fewer resources, and a less time consuming restoration of machines. Administration of digital projects and exams were also much easier, and the employees got access to desktops, networks and applications on mobile devices outside the office, without the IT department sacrificing security or control.

«We chose VMware View and VMware Horizon because these systems were a good fit for our needs and were built for the future»

— Jø Jøldal, Head of IT, Municipality of Kongsberg

NAV

 

NAV, the Norwegian Labor and Welfare Administration, experienced that increased user demands and heavy traffic surpassed their system’s capacity. By implementing cloud and virtualization solutions from VMware, NAV developed a dedicated cloud environment that would support increasing demands, offer easier administration and better security.

«We haven’t found any other product that is as good for surveillance of our virtual environment as VMware vCenter Operations Manager»

— Gerd Anne Buan, Part of virtualization group, NAV IKT Drift

Golf Course Superintendents Association (GCSAA)

 

Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) runs on VMware vCloud Air

The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA), with over 19,000 members in 72 countries, is the professional association for the men and women who manage and maintain the game’s most valuable resource — the golf course. Today, GCSAA and its members are recognized by the golf industry as one of the key contributors in elevating the game and business to its current state.

GCSAA’s mission is to serve its members, advance their profession and enhance the enjoyment, growth and vitality of the game of golf.

After deciding their IT strategy included transitioning to a Software Defined Data Center, they evaluated several vendors. They decided to go with VMware and EMC for server and storage consolidation and virtualization. They are currently 90% virtualized, with a 100% goal in the next couple of years. Currently 50% of their production applications are hosted in vCloud Air (Learning Management and Association Management apps) with a goal of 100%. These applications are important in helping GCSAA to get their customers to learn how to play golf better but also in achieving their goals of growing the business.

They also needed a cloud-based solution that would help them with international expansion rather than having to set up data centers in various countries.

"To stay competitive and to take advantage of new business opportunities, we have to be scalable but also have an environment that is reliable and redundant. And hosting our production environments in VMware vCloud Air has allowed us to grow in a rapid pace in order to fulfill the needs of our current members and our future ones.”

“The best thing that we have experienced with VMware vCloud Air is that we are able to do more with less. And what that means is that having a managed infrastructure up in VMware vCloud Air allows our engineers to basically spin up production test dev environment quickly than we would have had in our previous hosting provide.”

— Lambert Tomeldan, IT Director, GCSAA
