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.

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

”Due to the virtualised and centralised infrastructure, we save more than ten million forints yearly on energy costs.”

— Ferenc Gazdag, IT Operations Department Leader, EGIS Nyrt.

Elavon

 

Exceptional reliability had to be part of the plan, however, when it came to virtualizing a number of customer-facing quality assurance (QA) and user-acceptance testing (UAT) applications. For this set of highly visible applications, Stratus ftServer systems and VMware Infrastructure 3 were chosen to assure the flawless operation the company sought.

"Stratus ftServer systems and VMware are an ideal mission critical combination."

— Frank Bolling, vice president of systems and technology

Engenco

 

Implemented VMware vSphere™ to run SAP ECC6 and the business applications that comprise the Microsoft Office server platform—Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft Office Communications Server and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server—at a centralized, co-location datacenter.

“VMware has enabled us to run our SAP enterprise resource planning systems and Microsoft Exchange Server email more cost-effectively, dynamically and reliably.”

— Matthew Raisin, IT Manager

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."

— Franck Polycarpe , Infrastructure Manager, Urbanism and Technical Architecture of IT, ESSEC.

ExecuJet Aviation Group

 

The ExecuJet Aviation Group is a global business aviation organisation, offering a diverse range of services, including aircraft sales, management and charter. ExecuJet runs four data centres in Johannesburg, Capetown, Zurich and Dubai that underpin the IT for the entire organisation. The South African data centre desperately needed to upgrade a large amount of legacy infrastructure, and the company decided to consolidate its server infrastructure using VMware. Following their successful server virtualisation project, the management team got fully behind the IT team to explore the benefits of implementing a virtual desktop infrastructure. They looked into a number of options, but due to our great experiences with VMware and the range of features on offer, they choose to implement VMware View. By using VMware View, ExecuJet employees are now able to run Windows 7 from any internet-enabled device.

“Dealing with highly discerning clients means we have to be at the cutting edge of service and innovation. Being able to use Windows 7 on tablet devices with the help of VMware View has drastically increased flexibility and improved working practices across the board - from sales executives to pilots to maintenance engineers, all of which helps us deliver the best service possible to our customers.”
