The City of Melrose uses vCloud Hybrid Service for backup, offloading test and development environments as well as creating new revenue streams.

"The difference between the vCloud Hybrid Service and a lot of the other providers that we looked at was the ability to move workloads around back and forth to and from the Cloud. The other providers simply didn't give us that capability."

Australian Hearing

 

Implementing a hosted disaster recovery service based on VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager has enabled Australian Hearing to avoid AUD$450,000 in costs, recover its critical applications in three hours or less and test its business continuity capabilities without disrupting the organisation.

“Our business continuity and disaster recovery plans refer to a 48-hour recovery time as an absolute maximum. We can now recover all our key applications in no more than three hours.”

— Peter Gasparovic , Chief Information Officer, Australian Hearing

Royal Academy of Music

 

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.

“Space is of a premium at the Royal Academy of Music, so we were under huge pressure to reduce the amount of space we were using for IT. Using VMware’s Horizon View was the obvious solution. 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.”

— Duncan Malthouse-Hobbs, Head of Technology, Royal Academy of Music

A New Zealand Government Department

ABN AMRO N.V. Singapore

 

ABN AMRO's CTO, Dirk Sibiet, and the CCO of Private Banking, Hans-Peter Borgh, discuss how virtualising the end-user environment boosts security & compliance, significantly reduces costs, and opens up new opportunities for Relationship Managers to visit ABN AMRO Private Bank customers anywhere, anytime.

"Because at ABN AMRO Private Banking we have a lot of relationship managers who are private bankers and who meet their clients outside the offices. We will now be using virtual desktops to make our client conversations so much more relevant, by allowing our bankers, when they are on the road, to access the information they need and the tools they need to help our clients understand their [own] financial situation and financial opportunities better."

— Hand-Peter Borgh, Chief Commercial Officer, Private Banking

ABN AMRO N.V. Singapore

 

ABN AMRO business leaders talk about how they started their virtualisation journey with consolidation and DR, which led then to the current vCloud Suite implantation and the conclusion that any application can be virtualized. In partnership with Professional Services, provisioning time is reduced, DR recovery time slashed, and significant CAPEX savings have been made.

“We as a bank are now convinced that our strategy of moving to a virtual data centre is actually enabling our business to be more efficient and more profitable, and will enable our business to grow at a faster pace because we can [quickly] deliver solutions to market.”

— Dirk Sibiet , Country Technology Officer ABN AMRO Bank N.V. Singapore & ABN AMRO Private Banking Asia and Middle East

Today, with a custom designed VMware virtualization solution, ADPC has consolidated its IT infrastructure resulting in increased performance, savings on hardware maintenance and running costs, and enhanced scalability for further expansion.

“VMware’s dedication, support and expertise enabled Abu Dhabi Ports Company to execute one of the biggest virtualization projects in the region, Oracle E-business suite. The project resulted in a savings of US $ 1.2 million on hardware, power and licensing. We are now 100 percent virtualized and are able to serve our customers in minutes rather than weeks.”

VMware Virtual SAN Helps Adobe Realize Vision of Software-Defined Data Center

As subscriptions to Adobe Marketing Cloud increased, the storage team had difficulties scaling the platform because of the legacy direct-attached storage (DAS) architecture. Since a traditional storage-area network (SAN) solution would be too expensive and complex and a physical overhaul of the storage infrastructure was out of the question, the team explored a virtual solution. After all, Adobe’s computing resources were already virtualized using VMware vSphere—why not do the same for storage? Adobe explored VMware Virtual SAN and determined it was exactly the kind of solution they needed. The results? Virtual SAN not only delivered a cost-effective solution, it also outperformed traditional SAN and DAS solutions. And since system administrators can operate Virtual SAN with no additional training, Adobe can devote their highly skilled storage experts to strategic projects and increase overall operations efficiency.

“Virtual SAN is a highly efficient solution compared to a traditional SAN or DAS approach. By aggregating storage into a single resource pool, Virtual SAN enables us to be much more cost conscious.”

“We can stand up a chassis with Virtual SAN in just hours,” van Rooyen says. Plus,“Virtual SAN has automation capabilities that allow us to deploy compute resources and storage resources as a single operation—in minutes, not hours or days.”

— Frans van Rooyen, Cloud Architect, Adobe

ADP Dealer Services

 

ADP Dealer Services needed a highly productive development environment that could spawn creativity amongst its two thousand software engineers, hardware engineers, and developers while providing a secure internal infrastructure. Using VMware server and desktop virtualization solutions, the company built a research and development environment using network segmentation, VMware vCenter: Lab Manager, and VMware View.

— Bill Naughton, CIO

ADP Dealer Services

 

The company sought an end-user computing (EUC) solution from VMware to enable quick provisioning and de-provisioning of development environments. The ADP Dealer Services team chose VMware View for global deployment. With the View client, the developers access their remote workstations, either locally or remotely. The remote View workstation securely interacts with any ADP application from anywhere. The company has realized two great benefits – the ability for each administrator to manage 300-400 workstations, and the ability of the team to create and deploy workstations exceedingly fast, up to 50 or 60 a day.

"To give our team a space where they could be creative - where they could have a lot of flexibility in their personal compute - we started rolling out View.

— Bill Naughton, CIO
