Tribune Media

 

Business Transformation at Tribune Media

Tribune Media has over 42 owned or operated TV Stations, WGN Cable, Gracenote for Entertainment Metadata and Tribune Movie Studios, and is one of the nation’s largest independent broadcasters. VMware has really helped Tribune Media stop the conversations around technology, focusing instead on the outcomes it needs to operate the business. Now they can concentrate on increasing security capabilities, decreasing costs and responding to customer needs faster. Tribune Media can grow the business and go after new markets, and that translates into more revenue per customer.

“VMware has been really critical to drive the fluidity back to the business. My head of engineering has literally a saying over his door. It says, ‘If we can’t automate it we don’t need it’. If we deploy an application in our infrastructure to automate processes, we give that time back. What ends up showing up to the business is our ability to do more projects and do them faster, cheaper and better.”

— David Giambruno, SVP and CIO, Tribune Media

Union Hospital Boosts Business Critical Application Performance on VMware Virtual SAN

Faced with aging hardware and maxed-out resources, Union Hospital preferred to replace its existing SAN and migrate to a different and better platform for its Tier-1 VM storage, Virtual SAN, a hyper-converged solution that provides scale-out capabilities and the best integration with the entire VMware stack. The decision not only saved money and helped right size their storage environment, it also solved key application performance challenges and freed up operational resources, positioning Union Hospital for future expansion.

“We actually had clinics calling us up to say how much faster the apps were running once they were in a pure Virtual SAN environment. … It seems like the more things we migrate to Virtual SAN, the more people are begging to be on it.”

— Chad Elliott, Network Systems Consultant, Union Hospital

Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka

 

UTeM needed to improve the availability of its critical business applications and deliver them cost-effectively; make infrastructure resources available for research projects faster and more efficiently and provide students with mobile access to desktops so they could learn anytime from any location. By deploying end-to-end VMware virtualization, the university has cut its datacenter infrastructure costs by 45 percent, and is implementing student mobility programs and a private cloud
