Nordea Bank Polska SA
Platforma VMware vSphere 4 umożliwiła stworzenie stabilnego środowiska wirtualnego, jednocześnie przyczyniając się do odzyskania wolnego miejsca w serwerowni i ograniczenia poboru energii. Dla działu IT bardzo istotną kwestią była też wygoda tworzenia środowisk testowych i możliwość prowadzenia tzw. testów pre-live. Dzięki wirtualizacji serwerów zwiększyła się elastyczność zarządzania zasobami i uprościło zarządzanie całym środowiskiem IT. Pozytywne doświadczenia z VMware vShpere 4 skłoniły dział IT w banku Nordea do wdrożenia rozwiązania VMware View 4 służącego do wirtualizacji desktopów. Środowisko to zostało uruchomione produkcyjnie we wrześniu 2010 r.
“Wdrożenie wirtualizacji przyniosło wymierne korzyści w zakresie zarządzania, m.in. zespół odpowiedzialny wcześniej za zarządzanie sprzętem mógł zająć się innymi projektami. Co więcej, jedna konsola VMware vCenter umożliwia nam zarządzanie platformą vSphere oraz nowym środowiskiem VMware View. To daje nam możliwość rozbudowany naszej infrastruktury bez powiększania działu IT.”

NX Systems’ journey to the Software-Defined Data Center
NX Systems discusses how it has improved the flexibility of its infrastructure to handle more transactions by using VMware vCloud Suite. The company has increased the number of transactions processed per second from two to over two hundred.
“When you have a team of four to five hundred in other companies, our department was about sixty. Obviously we had to do the economies of scale and scale it out properly. However, where before the stress of the organisation was on the IT department keeping up with the sales team’s direction, their promises, with management targets, etc. now that we are focused on the technology and we have brought it up to speed, we are lowering much of our involvement on operations and doing much more of the R&D, optimisation and re-factoring.”
NX Systems talks about its journey with VMware so far and the solutions it is looking forward to deploying from the latest software-defined data center suite of products.
“The vSphere 6 announcement is very exciting for me – it provides two new features which we’ve been looking forward to for years – long distance vMotion and multi-core Fault Tolerance. VMware’s tighter integration between product components with vRealize automation operations and the SDDC are going to allow us to have a much more hands-off approach for the care and feeding of our infrastructure.”
Nyherji was looking for a way of simplifying its data centre infrastructure while being able to offer its customers a true hybrid cloud environment. Nyherji implemented VMware vSphere to virtualise its server estate, followed by VMware vCloud Suite to create an Infrastructure as a Service and hybrid cloud environment for its customers.
“VMware has enabled us to be the only managed service provider in Iceland which is able to offer our customers Infrastructure as a Service and the option of a hybrid cloud. VMware is incredibly well respected and was, in my view, the only company which we would feel comfortable partnering with. Not only does it have a strong heritage within virtualization and provisioning cloud environments, but we also feel that it offers us tremendous value for money both in terms of the ROI which we see from using these solutions and the VSPP licensing model it offers to us.”
After a year leveraging VMware infrastructure, NYSE's cloud-based Capital Markets Community Platform of vertical industry services is successfully meeting the needs of Wall Street IT leaders.
"We knew that we were going out well ahead of everybody else and we were very keen to do so, because we see and understand the cloud vision that VMware and EMC in particular have been promoting over the past few years. We agree with it fully. We feel like we're uniquely positioned within the capital markets industry as the neutral party."
