North Carolina State University

 

There is no substitute for experience when it comes to operating powerful machines. As part of Naval ROTC training at NC State University, midshipmen learn how to drive any vessel in the U.S. Navy fleet. NC State University Libraries deployed VMware Horizon View to securely deliver a virtual environment with the 3D graphics required for ROTC training. Authorized users can securely access the entire simulated training environment in software from a multipurpose creativity studio. Yet 3D virtualization isn’t just for training, NC State University students, faculty, and staff in other disciplines can also use virtual desktops to access critical 3D design software such as SolidWorks and AutoCAD.

“Naval ROTC is using Hunt Library resources for a simulation program that gives us the flexibility to build different scenarios, different classes of ships, train the students, and then tear that training down in an instant and move the resources over to something else. That flexibility is exactly what universities need in the future.”

— Dr. Marc Hoit, Vice Chancellor for IT and CIO, NC State University

North Carolina State University

 

Everywhere you look on today’s university campuses, you see devices—from laptops to smartphones to tablets. NC State University is no exception. It set the model for how to successfully embrace leading-edge technology and the bring your own device (BYOD) trend with the opening of the James B. Hunt Jr. Library in April 2013. In support of NC State University’s blended learning vision, VMware Horizon View enables anytime, anywhere, any-device access to applications and data, including demanding 3D graphics applications. Desktop services are available anywhere they are needed—on or off the campus—fully supporting a distributed computing environment and student, faculty, and staff device preferences.

“The Hunt Library is the visible lighthouse that says this is a technology leader and it’s everything from the high resolution rooms where you can do innovation to the virtualized desktops that allow students, faculty, and staff to use their services anywhere, anytime they need them.”

— Dr. Marc Hoit, Vice Chancellor for IT and CIO, NC State University

Northrim Bank

 

Northrim Bank believes that customers deserve the very highest level of service. VMware Horizon View is helping the bank meet its “Customer First Service” goals by enabling workforce mobility between headquarters and branch offices, and serving as a critical component of the bank’s “branch in a box” high-availability solution. Horizon View—together with Cisco UCS E-Series Servers and Atlantis Computing ILIO data-storage technologies—reduces costs, keeps the bank in compliance, and enables always-on access to applications for business-critical processes performed by management, bank tellers, and loan originators.

“With Horizon View, provisioning desktops, which used to be a very difficult, very manual task has become automated and it’s easy for us to deploy not just one or two, but 10 or 20 desktops within a few minutes. With the ability to have different snapshots, different versions and different gold images, we can tailor the user desktop to the business need.”

— Erick Stoeckle , Network and Systems Manager, Northrim Bank

NTT Neomeit

 

NTT Neomeit deploys, maintains and manages IT infrastructure for customers throughout the West Japan region. Desktop virtualization is a key part of its roadmap for improving security and management efficiency.

The combination of VMware’s proven technology and comprehensive support has resulted in huge performance and stability gains, and significant reductions in operating costs

“With the support of VMware, we completely re-engineered our virtual desktop infrastructure. This delivered major improvements in performance and stability, resulting in a stress-free working experience for our users.”

— Katsuya Yoneda, Head of Virtualization Technology Centre

Somerset School District

 

K-12 education has changed dramatically in recent years. According to Sara Eichten, principal at Somerset Middle School in Wisconsin, “The Common Core State Standards have drastically changed what we need to be doing with our students in both English language arts and mathematics, as well as focusing on disciplinary literacy in science, social studies, and other related arts classes.” So in May 2013 when Somerset School District was selected to participate in a pilot program to test the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) platform to meet the requirements of the Common Core State Standards Initiative, it looked to VMware for help. VMware Horizon View helped ease the deployment of the rigorous testing platform and deliver a seamless user experience to students.

"With VMware Horizon View, we didn’t experience any technical issues when we did the [Smarter Balanced] pilot. People were concerned about audio sound quality, videos, mouse movements—those things that are critical in high-stakes testing—but we saw no performance issues whatsoever in our environment. The virtual environment performed the way we expected it to, and we’re very happy with the results.”

— Ryan Sicard, Director of IT, Somerset School District
