Lotnicze Pogotowie Ratunkowe
Brak fizycznej możliwości zainstalowania kolejnych serwerów skłonił dział IT w Lotniczym Pogotowiu Ratunkowym do decyzji o próbie wprowadzenia wirtualizacji do swojej infrastruktury. Brak miejsca hamował nie tylko rozwój usług świadczonych wewnątrz Lotniczego Pogotowia Ratunkowego, ale także ograniczał możliwość wdrożenia sprzętu potrzebnego do prowadzenia testów. Prowadzenie testów na fizycznych maszynach samo w sobie jest utrudnione i nieefektywne - przy maszynach wirtualnych wykonanie klona działającej maszyny wirtualnej lub stworzenie nowego serwera z wykonanego wcześniej wzorca to kwestia paru kliknięć myszką. W wyniku wdrożenia rozwiązań VMware firma uzyskała możliwość dalszego rozwoju dzięki skonsolidowaniu swoich serwerów. Ułatwione też zostało zarządzanie wirtualnymi serwerami oraz skrócono czas reakcji na potrzeby biznesowe. Ograniczono także pobór prądu elektrycznego, którego konsumpcja przy takiej liczbie fizycznych serwerów byłaby znacznie wyższa.
“Gdy wybieraliśmy oprogramowanie firmy VMware do wirtualizacji serwerów, nie było dla niego żadnej rozsądnej, stabilnej alternatywy. Dziś jesteśmy zadowoleni z tej decyzji i nie zamienilibyśmy go na rozwiązanie konkurencyjne.”
Lufthansa systems provide IT for the airline & aviation industry, based in Frankfurt, they employ over 3,000 people based in 14 countries. They needed to develop a system to distribute mapping data to pilots across the globe. Flight charts are only current for 4 weeks and pilots are only given 10 days to download updates. It needed to be scalable to cope with huge peaks in demand of up to 800MB of data being downloaded by over 7,000 pilots at the same time. A VMware Hybrid Cloud solution enables them to utilise a public cloud solution with their existing private cloud, increasing scalability & agility while ensuring data security. It was the only solution to provide the capacity to handle peaks in traffic avoiding latency issues
"VMware enables us to use the capabilities and scalabilities of a Public Cloud Provider and at the same time ensuring data security and integrity.”
Virtualization Frees Madison-Plains Budget for Student Technology. Modernizing Servers as VMware Virtual Machines Helps Rural District Afford VMware View Virtual Desktop Environment
“VMware vSphere technology not only enabled a highly reliable server infrastructure, it also allowed us to save enough money on our servers that we could move to the next step, a VMware View virtual desktop deployment. VMware virtualization therefore became a core technology that opened new doors, including opportunities to offer more educational technology to our students.”
VMware Virtual Infrastructure Decreases Capital And Operational Expenses And Enables Efficient Server Consolidation To Extend The Life Of Your Data Center

VMware Virtual Technology Enables You To Consolidate Servers, Maximize Resource Utilization, Simplify IT Management, And Enhance Data Protection
“The vSphere upgrade was so smooth that the users had no idea it was being done. There were no outages, no problems at all. We’ve received a lot of positive feedback from users since upgrading to vSphere. The most significant benefits include faster server provisioning and simplified IT management, such as patching servers and managing resources and storage from vCenter.”
Mashreq has one of the region’s largest investments in virtualization, with the strategy that the overwhelming majority of its servers will be virtualized.
“Our return-on-investment calculations gave us a compelling reason to deploy VMware and reduce the proliferation of hardware in our data center while securing all of the performance and cost-saving benefits of virtualization, including maximizing system availability for Mashreq’s customers. We believe that VMware is the de facto standard for virtualization – VMware delivered and we’re very pleased with the results.”

Mentor Graphics has been using VMware for past 7-8 years in their software development environment. Paddy Ryan of Mentor Graphics shares his experience working with VMware products where their software development environments are changeable depending on their development cycle. VMware gives him that flexibility because they can deploy machines instantly and only use them for number of weeks and then those resources that are consumed by those virtual machines are returned to the pool and reallocated to other product development groups.
“From my perspective the best thing about VMware product is the speed at which it allows us to deploy virtual machines. We can configure one virtual machine set it up exactly how we want it, create a template out of it and then deploy 20 30 40 machines based on that template in a number of minutes. We find VMware and our engagements with VMware excellent, products are really good and the support people’s understandings of those products are really good.”
