Times Internet Ltd


Times Internet, the digital content delivery organisation of Times India, embarked on an aggressive Private Cloud deployment to deliver an elastic, scalable and highly reactive IT infrastructure. 3 datacentres were consolidated to two, and 800 physical servers consolidated to 100 VMs, all within months. With over 30 million unique visits every month, the Times Internet cloud brings high availability to media and content distribution.

"Two of the reasons for cloud were elasticity and scale. On Times of India if there is big news, you will see traffic growth to about 200 to 300%. At that point in time, if you didn’t have elastic infrastructure, you would have trouble in scaling that operation."

— Gautam Sinha, Chief Operating Officer & CTO

University of Massachusetts Lowell


UMass Lowell Uses Virtual Desktop Solution Designed for High-Performance Graphics to Drive Academic Accessibility and Success

University of Massachusetts Lowell is one of five campuses in the University of Massachusetts system. With a rapidly growing engineering program and an enrollment approaching 20,000 students by 2018, UMass Lowell needed more classroom space.

At the same time, the university wanted to make engineering education more accessible. In the past, courses required expensive workstations or laptops as well as software licenses, creating a barrier to entry for some students.

“All the students in the class can now pull out a device and start practicing what they just learned. The time from lecture to practice was reduced from weeks to seconds.”

— Steve Athanas, Director of platforms and systems engineering

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

— Jason Bullock, Executive Director of IT Global Infrastructure & Support, BDP International

Gemeente Zoetermeer


De gemeente Zoetermeer verving de verouderde desktops door virtuele desktops op basis van VMware View. De gemeente wilde resources on demand kunnen bijschakelen en kunnen inspelen op de snel veranderende markt. Ook dient de gemeente te voldoen aan compliancy-regels die onder meer stellen dat bepaalde activiteiten binnen twee dagen weer up-and-running moeten zijn na een calamiteit. Door over te stappen op desktopvirtualisatie kan de gemeente aan al deze eisen voldoen.

"Wij hebben een keuze gemaakt voor VMware View om een aantal belangrijke knelpunten op te lossen. Je moet hierbij denken aan verbeterde flexibiliteit. Flexibiliteit om vanaf elke werkplek in te loggen met behoud van eigen zelf samengestelde desktop beleving, plaatsonafhankelijk werken en het losknippen van de afhankelijkheden tussen hardware van de computer, besturingssystemen en de applicaties."

— Richard Thiele, ICT-projectleider, gemeente Zoetermeer

Kempenhorst College


Kempenhorst biedt leerlingen flexibele werkplek op basis van Horizon (with View)

Desktopvirtualisatie op basis van VMware View biedt de leerlingen en docenten van het Kempenhorst College stabiele werkplekken op school. Elke werkplek binnen het gebouw start snel op en biedt toegang tot alle onderwijsapplicaties, inclusief 3D-applicaties. Ook het beheer is sterk vereenvoudigd omdat installatie en updates centraal worden uitgerold. Op die manier kunnen leerlingen en docenten zich volledig concentreren op hun kernactiviteiten: onderwijs.

“In het verleden kostte het een aantal dagen om nieuwe programma’s of updates uit te rollen. Die situatie is nu drastisch veranderd. In plaats van een paar dagen rollen we nieuwe software nu in een paar uur binnen de gehele organisatie uit.”

— Jan-Henri Grilis, systeembeheerder

Kempenhorst College


Meer flexibiliteit dankzij VMware Horizon voor leerlingen van het Kempenhorst College

Het Kempenhorst College wilde leerlingen binnen het gebouw flexibele toegang bieden tot applicaties en medewerkers ook buiten het gebouw eenvoudig toegang geven, zonder de grip op het beheer te verliezen. Daarom werd er voor desktopvirtualisatie op basis van Horizon (with View) gekozen. Hierdoor kon Kempenhorst College de prestaties van de desktops verbeteren en fors besparen op energie, beheer en hardware.

“De performance is dankzij View verbeterd. Zo kunnen we nu binnen een minuut opstarten.”

“Dankzij VMware zijn de energie- en beheerskosten verlaagd en konden we besparen op de aanschafkosten voor hardware.”

— Jan-Henri Grilis, Systeem- en netwerkbeheerder, Kempenhorst College

Nederlands Herseninstituut


Nederlands Herseninstituut biedt studenten stabiele en flexibele werkplekken met Horizon (with View)

Desktopvirtualisatie op basis van Horizon (with View) biedt de studenten die tijdelijk op het instituut werken een stabiele en flexibele werkplek.
