ACI Specialty Benefits

 

Virtualization with Intelligent Operations Enables 55% Increase in Performance for ACI Specialty Benefits

Facing hyper-growth, ACI Specialty Benefits needed to ensure the company’s infrastructure was poised to proactively support the business. ACI moved to a virtualized data center and deployed vSphere with Operations Management in order to effectively load test, ensure adequate resources to handle demand, and onboard new customers more quickly and effectively. The company can now run applications at high service levels and maximize hardware savings through 40% higher capacity utilization and 50% higher consolidation ratios.

With the added visibility throughout its IT infrastructure, ACI has seen a 25% decrease in time spent on diagnostics and problem resolution. As a result of the operational efficiencies, the IT team is freed up to take on additional strategic initiatives.

“The first time looking at that single pane of glass was very surprising for us to see all of our different VMware infrastructure – at the data center, at headquarters, everywhere. Being able to see where we stood was a game changer.”

— Ryan Fay, Chief Information Officer, ACI Specialty Benefits

Adarsh Credit Co-Operative Society Ltd.

 

Tackling rural poverty by encouraging the habit of saving with VMware vSphere

Adarsh Credit Cooperative Society launched in 1999 and has 800 branches across India. The company holds deposits totaling 3,685.41 crore in Indian Rupees (INR) and has made loans to the value of 3,816.99 crore INR, as of March, 2014. Headquartered in Rajasthan – India’s largest state, with its complete IT operations based in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, the majority of its customers live in rural areas. VMware vSphere Enterprise and VMware vSphere for Operations Management enables Adarsh Credit Cooperative Society to continue its mission of helping improve the social and financial status of members through savings.

“Before we moved to VMware, server utilization was typically 20 to 25 percent. Today we are maximizing our utilization rates, enabling us to scale our services without adding any more servers. Take away VMware, and we would have had to buy at least five physical boxes, therefore adding to our cost base.”

— Mr Himanshu Shah, Chief Technology Officer, Adarsh Credit Cooperative Society Ltd

Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi

 

Enhancing patient experience through technology

Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi went into construction in March 2010 and is scheduled for completion in 2015. The hospital’s management wanted to provide a best-in-class digital environment for all patients in order to give them the best experience possible and to ensure their stay is a comfortable as possible from every aspect.

The IT team naturally has to play a key part in this vision and, as a result, deployed vCloud Automation Center for improved managed and oversight of its infrastructure. Thanks to VMware, the time it takes to deliver applications to the hospital will be reduced from two weeks to 15 minutes – or by 70% - due to the automation capabilities of VMware’s solution.

“The key to our IT strategy when we began our journey here was starting with private cloud and growing to a hybrid cloud or a software-defined datacentre. I think that the real drivers for that were increased agility and achieving better time to market for our customers, whether that’s physicians who may need data for research, of the ability for us to rapidly upgrade and enhance products, enabling new services.”

— Mike Reagin, Chief Information Officer, Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi

Nederlands Herseninstituut

 

Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience(NIN) offers students stable and flexible workstations with Horizon (with View)

Desktop virtualization based on Horizon (with View) offers students who are working temporarily at the institution a stable and flexible workstation. They have access to complete functionality for data analysis, research and producing reports. At the same time the environment can easily be managed centrally using an image, so that installation and updates are rolled out centrally. Automatic replication of servers using Site Recovery Manager (SRM) also o¬ffers the institution easy and reliable contingency fallback. In the case of disaster, research can quickly be resumed from different locations.

“We now offer students 40 complete workstations they may freely use. Managing them has been set up centrally based on one image. So we can implement changes and updates quickly, and remotely”

— Adriaan Klop, IT manager

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

 

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

Vodafone

 

Vodafone is one of the world’s leading mobile communications providers. Vodafone also offers cloud and hosting services to a number of businesses from a wide range of sectors, including banking and financial services, insurance, retail and the public sector.

Many of Vodafone’s customers were also now looking towards a hybrid approach to cloud computing, with the choice to deploy in either the public and private cloud environments and with easy movement of data and applications between the two. With this in mind Vodafone invest in vCloud Air – as it provided a hybrid cloud solution that could enable its customers to have this freedom and the associated benefits of a hybrid solution including speed of deployment of new products and services and reduced costs.

"A key challenge for adopting a hybrid cloud and also a key benefit is the requirement to move a workload from private cloud to the public cloud and back again, have workloads spanning both environments at the same time.

What appealed to us around vCloud Air was really two things: it’s based on the same hypervisor technology that is used in vSphere which enterprises will have deployed in their private cloud therefore you can do that seamless migration from private to public and back again.

In many of the public cloud offerings that exist today you actually have to export virtuial machine and transform it in order to migrate it into the target public cloud. vCloud Air takes that cost and complexity away."

— Tom Stockwell, Group Enterprise Function, Vodafone
