Kroll Ontrack – Extending the Power of Virtualization with VMware

Kroll Ontrack, provider of technology-driven services and software, experienced challenges with their previous virtual desktop solution. After moving to VMware Horizon™ 6 Enterprise Edition, productivity has increased tremendously and “a few people can now do the job of 10 people.” The company is also planning to implement VMware Horizon® Air™ for cloud-hosted desktops and apps, as well as VMware NSX™ for Horizon® bringing speed and simplicity to VDI networking.

Dammam University

 

University of Dammam Delivers Centralized, On-Demand Desktops and Applications with VMware

University of Dammam labs contain over 2000 units of physical PC desktops and laptops. A lot of resources were wasted on maintenance and support of these devices as any application installation or hardware issues were needed to be solved individually. Lab arrangements every semester needed to be done physically, through ghost images - a process that normally took over 3 days to complete. Additionally, the PCs were idle most of the day and needed to be replaced every 3 years.

"VMware Horizon View was the most cost effective solution to create and deliver desktops to our faculty and students. With VMware, we have significant cost savings on licenses, hardware requirements, and staff resources. Students, faculty and administrators have noted the improvement in desktop performance and the quality of service with faster changes with VMware Horizon View."

— Dr. Saad AlAmri, CIO, Dammam University
