The Royal Academy of Music (RAM) needed to reduce its IT spending and the management burden of its physical IT estate, while providing more flexible ways of working for students and staff and freeing up more space for music practice and tutoring. The Royal Academy of Music selected VMware Horizon View and VMware vSphere to virtualize its servers and desktop PCs.

The technology has had an instant impact and by virtualizing our desktop PCs, we have been able to free up two music rooms – 212 hours a week of practice and tuition time for our musicians - while allowing flexible working for staff and students and reducing our IT hardware bill by over £50k. The combination of a server and desktop virtualization project has also freed up a tremendous amount of time to focus on more strategic IT projects rather than hardware and software maintenance and troubleshooting.”

Ziv Medical Center

 

Ziv Medical Center in Zefat previously had various distributed systems across the hospital and they wanted to unify them using a single solution which will be easy to manage, allow them to gain a unified view of all the systems simply and easily, and, of course, will be highly resilient. That's why they chose VMware View. The VMware view solution that they implemented at the zivMedical Center consists of two resilient storage systems that work in a cluster. This system caters for around 1,000 work stations. It's an environment that works as a 'Kiosk'. Their users enjoy a new work environment, a very fast one, with excellent response times. As a user logs in, he gets exactly what he needs. It's an environment that goes everywhere with him, it's dedicated to him - and roams with him. Doctors for example, may work in several different wards. They may finish work in one ward, log out, move to the next ward, log in - and receive a new environment that is adapted to their exact needs.

"The Ziv Medical Center in Zefat was founded roughly a century ago. It serves around 150,000 residents in the upper Galilee region, among them cities such as Karmiel, Kiryat Shmona, and Hatzor. This is the northernmost hospital in Israel and it therefore also often serves the IDF. They operate 1,000 PCs, 700 printers, and 80 servers, which are mostly VMware's. The vast majority of systems in the hospital are computerized. This includes labs, ORs, X Ray facilities, external infirmaries, hospital admissions, the trauma center and more. Our IT unit employs 11 people. One needs to understand that the systems we manage are life-supporting. These systems must be constantly up and running".

— Zion Levy, Head of IT Department, Ziv Medical Center

"If we were to remove the system right now, I don't know how people would react. I think they would melt down, because they've become so accustomed to being able to provide that care at the bedside. Being able to spend time with the patient and chart, and then go on to the next patient without having to run back to the nurse’s station for charting.
