Kras dd, is a leading manufacturer of confectionery products in South East Europe. In early 2008, the project was initiated by replacing series of old computers. The aim was to reduce operating costs and simplify management of IT infrastructures through virtualization of desktop computers. By implementing VMware's virtualization solutions Kras created a series of improvements: reduced costs of replacing computers for more than 30 percent, while the costs of maintaining PCs fell by 70 percent. In addition, the increased productivity of IT departments and the general level of data security. Virtualization Kras has achieved significant energy and financial savings.
“We achieved an almost immediate response to business requests thanks to VMware. Less than two hours pass between the moment when we receive a request for a new computer and the moment when the new computer is fully functional. New computers are made fully operational up to ten times more quickly than before and maintenance costs have been cut by 70 percent. In addition, virtualization resulted in considerable energy savings and reduced our CO2 emissions by three and a half times, by which we joined the Green IT initiative.”

La Cite is the largest French community college in Ontario with 5,000 students enrolled in over 90 programs. A variety of these programs require 3D graphics and computer labs, such as Civil and Mechanical Engineering, Architecture, and Interior Design. The college decided to virtualize desktops because the current workstations were aging. The price to replace those workstations was roughly the same as going to virtualization. La Cite chose Dell, NVIDIA, and VMware to deliver virtual desktops to these labs which resulted in reduced login times and more flexibility for both students and faculty.
“Virtualization helps me greatly when I’m preparing my classwork at home. I can quickly access the virtualization and see what the application looks like and prep my work around the same image that the students are using.”
