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

Tribune Media


See How Tribune Media Succeeds with VMware Automation

“In five months, we set up this infrastructure. We moved 141 apps onto the infrastructure and we had 9 helpdesk calls. So guess what? It works. It really works.”

“We have gone from the Flintstones to the Jetsons in less than 18 months."

“It’s literally ‘click a button’ to provide services and capabilities out to the business. We operate in minutes and seconds, not days and weeks.”

— David Giambruno, Senior Vice President and CIO, Tribune Media

University of Derby


The University of Derby wanted technology to improve the running of its IT estate, including its business critical applications running Oracle Databases. Having virtualized a number of smaller applications to start with by early 2012, the University of Derby decided to move its Oracle PeopleSoft applications across to its virtual infrastructure to help increase the efficiency and agility of services.

“We virtualised our most critical business applications with VMware and completely rely on it to keep them agile. We started virtualizing with VMware to save costs, but now it has become an absolutely crucial technology to support our current and future IT infrastructure”

— Ianto Jones, Servers and Storage Manager at the University of Derby

University of Zurich


The University of Zurich was considering modifications to its in-house infrastructure which would permit it to react to potential disruptions in the OLAT system with more agility. The solution focused on VMware vFabric tc Server, since it was critical for the migration that the integration be able to proceed problem-free. The operations team now has a central console for monitoring and management of the application server. As a result, potential problems can now be detected before they occur, so that timely action can be taken before users are impacted.

“VMware vFabric tc Server has significantly accelerated the deployment of new application servers, reducing time to market of new functionality.”

— Dr. Alan Moran, Head of OLAT

VIF International Education and VMware


User traffic on VIF International Education's Learning Center, an online professional development platform for K–12 educators, grew by more than 500 percent in one year, but its on-premises IT infrastructure couldn’t keep up. This mission-critical service was running on a single server blade without power or network redundancy, leading to unacceptably high downtime. By moving to the VMware vCloud® Air™ platform, VIF gained vastly higher availability and near-unlimited scalability, improved resource utilization by 300 percent, and reduced its IT systems management workload.

VIF International Education builds global education programs that prepare teachers and students for success in an interconnected world.

Boekel De Nerée


Boekel De Nerée wilde haar serveromgeving consolideren om de hoeveelheid hardware terug te dringen. Op basis van VMware vSphere heeft Boekel De Nerée inmiddels 95 procent van de alle servers gevirtualiseerd, inclusief de bedrijfskritische systemen voor SAP, document management, SharePoint en mobiele apparatuur. Met VMware heeft het bedrijf meer grip op de centrale serveromgeving die alle bedrijfsapplicaties ondersteunt.

“Een belangrijk aspect van VMware is dat we nu onafhankelijk van hardware zijn, waardoor de flexibiliteit is toegenomen. Een nieuwe server inrichten is nu een kwestie van minuten. Voorheen duurde dit aanzienlijk langer. Capaciteit is dus ‘on-the-fly’ beschikbaar. Daarmee vergroten we de slagkracht van de IT-organisatie, maar belangrijker is dat we kernactiviteiten effectiever ondersteunen tegen lagere kosten.”

— Frank Keessen, ICT manager Boekel De Nerée

Gemeente Zoetermeer


De gemeente Zoetermeer verving de verouderde desktops door virtuele desktops op basis van VMware View. De gemeente wilde resources on demand kunnen bijschakelen en kunnen inspelen op de snel veranderende markt. Ook dient de gemeente te voldoen aan compliancy-regels die onder meer stellen dat bepaalde activiteiten binnen twee dagen weer up-and-running moeten zijn na een calamiteit. Door over te stappen op desktopvirtualisatie kan de gemeente aan al deze eisen voldoen.

"Wij hebben een keuze gemaakt voor VMware View om een aantal belangrijke knelpunten op te lossen. Je moet hierbij denken aan verbeterde flexibiliteit. Flexibiliteit om vanaf elke werkplek in te loggen met behoud van eigen zelf samengestelde desktop beleving, plaatsonafhankelijk werken en het losknippen van de afhankelijkheden tussen hardware van de computer, besturingssystemen en de applicaties."

— Richard Thiele, ICT-projectleider, gemeente Zoetermeer

Schuberg Philis

Met deze aanpak ondersteunt het de gehele ICT-keten van bijvoorbeeld fi nanciële dienstverleners, retailbedrijven en energiemaatschappijen; van functionele uptime tot de interfaces met derde partijen. Om klanten maximale fl exibiliteit, beschikbaarheid en performance te bieden, optimaliseert Schuberg Philis continu haar eigen infrastructuur en processen. Daarbij heeft het bedrijf inmiddels een aantal jaar geleden ook de stap naar netwerkvirtualisatie gezet.

“Een nieuwe server opzetten is niet langer een kwestie van netwerken optuigen, machines inrichten en de bekabeling in orde maken. We kunnen VMs én netwerken snel modelleren en het applicatielandschap razendsnel uitrollen. Dit proces kostte voorheen al snel een paar weken. We kunnen het nu in ruim 18 minuten. Dat is enorme tijdwinst.”

— Edwin Beekman, Netwerk engineer bij Schuberg Philis

University of Zurich


Die Universität Zürich zog Veränderungen ihrer internen Infrastruktur in Betracht, um schneller auf potenzielle Unterbrechungen im OLAT-System reagieren zu können. Die neue Lösung stützt sich auf VMware vFabric tc Server, da eine reibungslose Integration entscheidend für die Migration war. Das Betriebsteam verfügt nun über eine zentrale Konsole für die Überwachung und das Management des Anwendungsservers. So lassen sich potenzielle Probleme erkennen, bevor sie auftreten, und Gegenmaßnahmen können rechtzeitig ergriffen werden, bevor der Anwender beeinträchtigt wird.

„Durch VMware vFabric tc Server konnte die Bereitstellung neuer Anwendungsserver erheblich beschleunigt und die Einführungszeit neuer Funktionen verkürzt werden.“

— Dr. Alan Moran, Leiter OLAT
