VMware vSphere Creates A Virtual Platform That Allows IT Services To Be Delivered Quickly And Easily, With Lower Costs And Administration
“Our VMware deployment has helped us to enhance our operations not just from a server management standpoint, but from a business continuity standpoint as well. It’s helped us do a lot more with less, which is huge in this economy.”
VMware Infrastructure enabled Fundtech India to reduce its hardware footprint and allocate resources to applications on an ‘as needs’ basis, improving return on investment, eliminating facilities strain and providing head room to support continued business growth.
“Implementing VMware has enabled us to dramatically reduce our environmental footprint and datacenter congestion while providing the flexibility to dynamically allocate resources to applications. Apart for speed and reliability the solution also provides additional backup and redundancy in the event of a hardware problem – meaning I can sleep better at night."

VMware Technology Simplifies The Creation, Deployment, And Administration Of Virtual Machines That Save Time And Money
“For us, VMware isn’t just a technology; it’s a way of life. It’s made our life easier in so many different ways—from streamlining our own internal IT infrastructure, to allowing our consultants on the road to easily spin up IT environments when they meet with customers— that we can’t really imagine a world without VMware in it. VMware has been a great enabling technology. It’s something that allows me to sleep at night because I know that the technology works. I can rely on it.”
Use VMware Software to Add Virtual Instead of Physical Machines, Processing the Workload of 25 Physical Servers with Less Than Half that Number
“The initial driver for virtualization was cost avoidance: we were able to do the work of 25 servers with just 12. Besides maximized hardware utilization, minimized disruptions, and the ability to consolidate and share resources, probably the biggest benefit I see from virtualization is saving a considerable amount of time, thanks to simplified management.”
When IT becomes a matter of life or death
“VMware is the only provider of virtualization solutions that meets our requirements. As the data center for a hospital, we depend on the absolute reliability of our systems. This must not be compromised in any way regardless of savings measures.”

VMware vCloud Director supporting the deployement of a private cloud infrastructure de Cloud offering IAAS services
“With VMware vCloud Director, we now have a private Cloud infrastructure which enables us to provide our developers with test environments and pre-equipped development much quicker than before. The provisioning time of our IaaS services has been reduced from 2 weeks to less than 1 hour!”
The challenge was to overcome the limitations of physical infrastructure in a data center that had reached the limits of space and required electricity costs for maintenance. The company also wanted to provide its services as cloud. VMware vSphere allows all business-critical applications to run, VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager provides security and reliability, while VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite simplifies IT activity.
"Our data center has always been a cost. In the last year, thanks to VMware, it's become a business. And everything seems to indicate that this will just keep getting better."

HDFC Bank needed to launch hundreds of branches quickly to provide banking services to 40 million new customers from rural and regional India. The financial services company developed a ‘Branch in a VM’ concept to meet this objective and, between 2008 and 2012, opened more than 1,700 branches. The bank can now provision a new branch in less than 10 days.
"In the past it could take up to a couple of months to setup a new branch. With VMware virtualization, we can do this in under 10 days."
To improve operational efficiencies, Hertz International had a choice of either refreshing its existing infrastructure across its European locations at considerable expense, or implementing newer technologies. In addition to centralising the server estate, Hertz International wanted to simplify its complex desktop infrastructure, which constituted a considerable capital investment. Having over 4,000 PCs and laptops spread over 1,000 sites around Europe, upkeep and maintenance of these were real issue in terms of time, resource and cost. Following a review of the major offerings on the market, Hertz International decided to implement VMware View as it best suited the organisation’s needs and would easily integrate with its existing server virtualization infrastructure. It also made a decision to replace legacy desktop devices with zero client Wyse terminals.
“By virtualizing our server and desktop estate with VMware, we’ve cut costs, dramatically simplified our IT infrastructure and transformed how we support over 1000 desktops in our service centre in Dublin. We’re able to create and deliver even more innovative technology services to our users, while enhancing the experience we provide to our customers. The platform VMware has enabled us to build has given us extremely strong foundations to realise even greater benefits, as we add more and more services and extend the research of the programme internationally.”
