Student Loan Direct is an easy-to-use, user-friendly portal that also provides help and information functions. It enables users to create correct and properly completed documents required for the loan process. They can complete their loan applications and data update forms, view their loan agreements, balances, and repayment history, exchange messages with the Student Loan Center, and communicate using this channel instead of postal mail. The launch of the Student Loan Direct is a success story: 50 percent of all new loan applications already arrived through the portal started in September 2011. Since the virtualization of Student Loan Center, there were no unplanned server downtimes, and the server room requires less cooling and energy. The fault tolerance of the VMware-based environment, tested before implementing the Student Loan Direct portal, showed that operation continuity can be ensured if combined with regular data backups. The introduction of 7x24 service availability requires setting up a backup data center that Student Loan Center will implement using VMware’s disaster recovery solution.

"Using VMware's virtualization solution, we have set up a server environment with high-availability and load balancing to serve our Student Loan Direct portal. So our customers can rely on our services around the clock, 7 days a week."

— István Gál, IT Manager, Student Loan Center Plc.

Dr Reddy's Laboratories

 

VMware virtualization enables the organization to cut management overheads and reduce the time and effort required to customize the SAP system to meet specific business requirements.

“VMware virtualization has enabled us to deliver our business-critical SAP applications reliably and at a low cost, while the ability to roll back to an operational ‘snapshot’ of a virtual server has reduced our development times and increased our responsiveness to the business.”

— P.R. Srivanas, Senior Manager, SAP Basis

Dreher Sörgyárak Zrt.

 

Dreher used VMware ESX 3.5 to virtualize its server environment, and now upgrades it to vSphere 4.1 Version The benefits from the flexibility of the VMware environment have a noticeable effect on the performance of every day operation tasks: for example, using vMotion they can easily reshuffle the virtual machines between the hosts, and literally the business department does not even notice if any of the physical machines is shut down for maintenance. With VMware tools, 70 to 80 percent of the operation tasks can be managed in-house, with unchanged staff numbers, which leads to significant cost savings. Since 2009 Dreher Sörgyárak Zrt. switched to 24-hour operation, for which the continuous availability too was easier to maintain by using a VMware based server environment.

"Compared to our former costs of operation, the total cost of our virtualization project including the price of the new hardware and the license fees, was recovered in 18 months.".

— Ferenc Schüszterl, IT Services Manager, Dreher Sörgyárak Zrt.

EDS Turns to VMware Server Virtualization to Support Australian Customers

“The increasing maturity of virtualization and the growing support from independent software vendors is helping fuel deployment of VMware virtualization across production environments. This means more businesses are redeploying or disposing of inefficient hardware and consolidating their data center infrastructure onto multiple virtual server environments, thus contributing to a reduction in power consumption.”

— David Simpfendorfer, Asia-Pacific ITO Product Marketing Manager

EGIS

 

Targets set with regard to virtualisation • establishing the central infrastructure • all virtualised applications shall be installed on this infrastructure • catastrophy-proof operational safety • cost eff ective operations Results achieved with VMware’s solution • agressive virtualisation (e.g. 170 virtual machines running on the 3 blade servers of the Microsoft cluster) • in general 40-50 virtual machines running on the other clusters on each physical host • resource utilization of more than 50 percent in general (70-80 percent on certain clusters) • more than 500 virtualised systems • the performance of the SAP company management system increased from twice 2000 SAPS to 12000 SAPS • more than 10 million Forints savings yearly in energy consumption • 15-20 percent reduction of licence costs • serving business demand in 1 week instead of 4-6 weeks • catastrophy-proof operational safety by means of the virtualised systems to be moved between host servers of each site

EPAM Systems

 

EPAM centralised infrastructure management in the first phase of the development process aiming at the establishment of an IT environment that would adapt more flexibly to business requirements. In the second phase of the developments in the summer of 2006, EPAM Systems decided to virtualise the development and test environments established for the projects. Thanks to VMware-based virtualisation, we are able to set up the development environment of a starting project several magnitudes faster, just under 1 hour instead of several days or weeks. The other big advantage of virtualisation is that development managers can take a snapshot of the environment before testing a new version or service pack of the software under development or before verifying the version compatibility of a new database manager. EPAM in recent years has achieved two-digit growth in revenues and employed staffs - which are also reflected in the cost of IT.

„The snapshot function of VMware provides a high degree of security for development work. Using this system, it is faster and easier to test our software and we are able to provide an even higher standard of service to our customers. While our earlier infrastructure may have limited this process, our virtualised environment has become the drive behind our business.”

— Tibor Borzák, IT research & development manager, EPAM Systems

EPFL (École Polytechnique Fédérale De Lausanne)

 

École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) is a Federal Institute of Technology based in Lausanne in Switzerland, they have over 9,000 students and 4,500 staff members. EPFL needed to design, implement and maintain a centralized virtual infrastructure to meet the needs of the entire school. They also needed to reduce total cost of ownership and lower power consumption. vCenter Operations has transformed the way their library storage requirements are supported enabling effective predictions for capacity and a hybrid cloud model has been adopted to provide the ability to extend their infrastructure into the public cloud. As well as a 33% reduction in TCO and 80% reduction in power consumption, EPFL have also experienced increased capacity and optimization through the effective management of their cloud infrastructure.

“We invested in vCenter Operations to support our large infrastructure of 500 VMs and 40 hosts. It has enabled us to predict capacity needs and to easily locate any performance issues.”

— Eric Krejci , Systems Specialist, EPFL

Ergomedia

 

The competence gained during the implementation of VMware vSphere and the comments we have received from our customers, have enabled Ergomedia to launch public cloud services, based on the VMware vCloud Director. Limitations in Hyper-V drove them to choose VMware to deliver a cloud for their Microsoft Applications.

“In our computing cloud, we provide customers with access to Microsoft applications, but it's VMware who helped us guarantee the top availability and stability of the entire environment. The use of the VMware virtualization software improves and accelerates our work. We do not need to employ additional administrator although the number of virtual machine keeps on growing.”

— Przemysław Skowroński, Managing Director, Ergomedia

ESSEC Business School

 

To ensure homogeneity of a fleet composed of 1200 computers, integrate the devices of students and teachers (BYOD) and lighten the IT maintenance expenses. Virtualization of 500 workstations (soon 700 and ultimately 1500) with virtualization of applications to eliminate the conflicts. Provisioning of non-persistent environments (which eliminates profile management). Cross-device portability.

“An institution like ESSEC cannot escape the tidal wave of “Bring your Own Device!” Thanks to VMware, we were able to finally free ourselves from material constraints to offer our users access at any time, from anywhere and from all devices."
