VMware vSphere allows all business-critical applications to run, VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager provides security and reliability, while VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite simplifies IT activity.

"Our data center has always been a cost. In the last year, thanks to VMware, it's become a business. And everything seems to indicate that this will just keep getting better."

Heartland’s rapid growth in the eCommerce field keeps them focused on virtualizing their technology infrastructure in order to handle their diverse products and platforms while managing industry risk and optimizing performance.

“Software defined data center is a big initiative for us. We want to get to the point where everything for us is software and configuration. We believe VMware has that similar vision.”

— Bryan Thompson, CTO, Heartland

Hertz International

 

To improve operational efficiencies, Hertz International had a choice of either refreshing its existing infrastructure across its European locations at considerable expense, or implementing newer technologies. In addition to centralising the server estate, Hertz International wanted to simplify its complex desktop infrastructure, which constituted a considerable capital investment. Having over 4,000 PCs and laptops spread over 1,000 sites around Europe, upkeep and maintenance of these were real issue in terms of time, resource and cost. Following a review of the major offerings on the market, Hertz International decided to implement VMware View as it best suited the organisation’s needs and would easily integrate with its existing server virtualization infrastructure. It also made a decision to replace legacy desktop devices with zero client Wyse terminals.

“By virtualizing our server and desktop estate with VMware, we’ve cut costs, dramatically simplified our IT infrastructure and transformed how we support over 1000 desktops in our service centre in Dublin. We’re able to create and deliver even more innovative technology services to our users, while enhancing the experience we provide to our customers. The platform VMware has enabled us to build has given us extremely strong foundations to realise even greater benefits, as we add more and more services and extend the research of the programme internationally.”

— Paul Bermingham, Staff Vice President, Information Technology Services, Hertz International

Hoka Hoka Bento

 

Hoka Hoka Bento operates Japanese fast-food restaurants across Java and Bali in Indonesia.

"With our systems running in a reliable virtual infrastructure, we can continue to improve our performance and reputation, and look at ways of increasing turnover."

— Johan Sutrisno, IT Division Head

Hong Kong Housing Society

 

The Housing Society has offices throughout the city-state, and when swine flu reached Hong Kong in 2009, the organization realized it needed an alternative location to ensure some employees could still access vital tenancy information and critical services should there be an infectious disease epidemic or natural disaster. The organization virtualized its data center five years ago on VMware vSphere to consolidate its sprawling physical infrastructure and has achieved 94 percent virtualization. All mission critical applications are now virtualized, including its iHousing system for tenancy management, Microsoft Exchange Server, and Oracle JD Edwards financial application. The organization worked with VMware to design and implement a virtual desktop infrastructure solution delivered by VMware Horizon View.

"A virtual desktop solution delivers greater flexibility to our employees because the data follows them rather than tying them to a single location. We had a strong relationship with VMware and existing expertise in the vSphere server virtualization software, and so it made good business sense to virtualize our desktops with VMware."

— Kenny Ho, Senior Manager

ITSAM

 

ITSAM in Sweden is an public sector organisation formed to provide IT support and services to educational establishments across 6 different municipalities. One of the main challenges they faced was having the ability to operate in such a large region. If a computer went down, they would send an engineer out to fix it, this proved to be very inefficient and costly. With unique desktops you get unique problems, so ITSAM implemented VMware View so that they could easily replicate desktops to hundreds of students. This has enabled their end users to access their desktops from any location at anytime. It has also enabled teachers to easily provide additional applications to support students that need extra tuition enabling the students to work on these from home. ITSAM have recently started a proof of concept with Horizon, to enable them to manage their applications more efficiently.

“The benefit to the end users is that they can access their own desktop from any client around the world, it does n’t matter where they are. Also the school can make sure they provide the correct applications to the right students at all times.”

— Thomas Sjoholm, IT Professional, ITSAM
