Royal Academy of Music

 

The Royal Academy of Music (RAM) needed to reduce its IT spending and the management burden of its physical IT estate, while providing more flexible ways of working for students and staff and freeing up more space for music practice and tutoring. The Royal Academy of Music selected VMware Horizon View and VMware vSphere to virtualize its servers and desktop PCs.

“Space is of a premium at the Royal Academy of Music, so we were under huge pressure to reduce the amount of space we were using for IT. Using VMware’s Horizon View was the obvious solution. The technology has had an instant impact and by virtualizing our desktop PCs, we have been able to free up two music rooms – 212 hours a week of practice and tuition time for our musicians - while allowing flexible working for staff and students and reducing our IT hardware bill by over £50k. The combination of a server and desktop virtualization project has also freed up a tremendous amount of time to focus on more strategic IT projects rather than hardware and software maintenance and troubleshooting.”

— Duncan Malthouse-Hobbs, Head of Technology, Royal Academy of Music

Region Hovedstaden

 

VMware Professional Services to Bring Virtualization to Danish Health Care System. Working closely with a VMware Technical Account Manager, the region is making effective use of VMware Horizon View to support 25,000 clinicians. Region H had used VMware server solutions for several years, and they wanted to extend the benefits of virtualization out into the organization with a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). In particular, it wanted to give its 25,000 clinicians—who are on the front line of delivering care— fast, easy, and secure access to the IT systems they need to do their jobs. To do so, Region H decided to implement VMware Horizon View for desktop virtualization.

“The TAM felt like someone who was very much ‘our man’ and looked at things from our point of view. And this saved time and effort for us.”

— Morten Møllegaard, lead technical project manager working with Region H

Region Hovedstaden

 

VMware AlwaysOn Point of Care Solution helps improve patient care in Region Hovedstaden, the Capital Region of Denmark.

Bank Audi

 

Bank Audi Bridges the Business/IT Gap with Help from VMware Professional Services.

And IT leaders sometimes find business goals to be disconnected from the realities of limited resources, budget, and staff. However, working closely with VMware Professional Services, Bank Audi found a way to bridge the gap between business and IT and create new business advantages.

“We definitely feel that we have a trusted relationship with VMware to start a long term journey to the bank we’re aspiring to build.”

Datacentrix

 

Partner testimonial as to how effectively the VOA assesments tool worked for their customers, providing quantifiable results on how much it has saved its customers.

Some typical feedback we got was that the customers saw that the SQL DBA insists on more memory, whereas VOA clearly indicated that they are not even using a quarter of that memory. It quickly highlighted to us what the root cause of performance problems were.

— Jay Dempsey & Marius Redelinghuis, , Solutions Architect

Banca Akros

 

Banca Akros decided to adopt VMware vSphere with Operations Management, implementing the system in the new infrastructure.

Beaumont Hospital

 

Ireland’s Beaumont Hospital is using VMware’s vCenter Log Insight to deliver better IT services to its organisation through more efficient network usage and reduced downtime. It does this by delivering unparalleled visibility into its virtualized IT estate.

“As the hospital’s reliance on IT grew, the role of IT staff became steadily more complex. With all departments and every new project requiring some level of IT input, we realised we needed to run our infrastructure in a more efficient way. This meant investing in a solution which could offer us clear and comprehensive visibility into our server network. Using VMware vCenter Log Insight has allowed us to better track data centre trends and, as a result, make better, more informed decisions about our network to help increase efficiency and prolong the life-span of equipment. We’re also able to identify potential IT issues quicker than ever before meaning that downtime is almost non-existent and the end-user experience has improved.”

— David Kelly, ICT Virtualization Manager

Ziv Medical Center

 

Ziv Medical Center in Zefat previously had various distributed systems across the hospital and they wanted to unify them using a single solution which will be easy to manage, allow them to gain a unified view of all the systems simply and easily, and, of course, will be highly resilient. That's why they chose VMware View. The VMware view solution that they implemented at the zivMedical Center consists of two resilient storage systems that work in a cluster. This system caters for around 1,000 work stations. It's an environment that works as a 'Kiosk'. Their users enjoy a new work environment, a very fast one, with excellent response times. As a user logs in, he gets exactly what he needs. It's an environment that goes everywhere with him, it's dedicated to him - and roams with him. Doctors for example, may work in several different wards. They may finish work in one ward, log out, move to the next ward, log in - and receive a new environment that is adapted to their exact needs.

"The Ziv Medical Center in Zefat was founded roughly a century ago. It serves around 150,000 residents in the upper Galilee region, among them cities such as Karmiel, Kiryat Shmona, and Hatzor. This is the northernmost hospital in Israel and it therefore also often serves the IDF. They operate 1,000 PCs, 700 printers, and 80 servers, which are mostly VMware's. The vast majority of systems in the hospital are computerized. This includes labs, ORs, X Ray facilities, external infirmaries, hospital admissions, the trauma center and more. Our IT unit employs 11 people. One needs to understand that the systems we manage are life-supporting. These systems must be constantly up and running".

— Zion Levy, Head of IT Department, Ziv Medical Center

Bluefin Solutions

 

VMware vCloud Air is the first service Bluefin Solutions has come across that enables almost instantaneous transfers between two cloud environments. It will enable the consultancy to create a full hybrid model based on a technology they know and trust.

Bluefin Solutions

 

Bluefin Solutions unlocks hybrid cloud with VMware vCloud Air. Bluefin Solutions needs to swiftly move SAP applications from the test and development stage in the public cloud (off-premises), to a live environment in the private cloud (on-premises). They have been building these systems in the Amazon public cloud, but once the test and development stage is complete, there is no way of moving the SAP systems back to on-premises. Instead, the team has to entirely rebuild them, replicating days, weeks, or even months of work. vCloud Air is the first solution Bluefin Solutions has come across which enables almost instantaneous transfers between the two cloud environments. It will enable the consultancy to create a full hybrid cloud model based on a technology it knows and trusts.

“With vCloud Air, we can now seamlessly move data and applications freely across private and public cloud environments. As a global technology company, Bluefin Solutions has always been at the forefront of new and emerging technologies. With vCloud Air we can continue to drive innovation - new ways of doing business supported by new uses of technology. I can now create a full hybrid cloud model based on a technology I know and trust, in support of enterprise workloads such as SAP.”

— Kevin Turnbull, Head of IT, Bluefin Solutions

Ideosity

 

Ideosity, a boutique technology consultancy with large global clients, needed to ensure that client data was safely backed up and could be easily recovered by a small IT team.

Best of all, backups and replication that once took 12 hours or more can now be completed in less than three hours. Faster data protection means Ideosity can do more with existing hardware and its existing IT resources, saving time, money, and effort.

“I’ve virtualized with VMware and prefer backing up with VMware. With vSphere Data Protection Advanced, backups have gotten more sophisticated. It is cost-effective and reliable— kind of set it and forget it.”

— Rich Dase, Co-founder and CEO, Ideosity
