Use VMware Infrastructure And VMware View To Save Money, Time And Energy
“We sometimes walk people through our datacenter, show them all the empty racks, and say, ‘This is what virtualization has done for us.’ Before we started using VMware Infrastructure, those racks were full. It’s a powerful way of making the point that that you don’t need to buy a server every time you need one. Instead, you can license VMware for a robust infrastructure of virtual machines that give you as much or more computing power as physical servers.”

"The server farm has become 100% virtual. All the Windows or Linux based servers run on VMware vSphere. We have 500 virtual servers. Actually, for all intents and purposes, I have a private cloud here."
When I am asked “Why VMware?” the answer is clear. In every test that we’ve made the other solutions were fighting yesterday’s battles. It’s like comparing the space shuttle to a racing car, even if the racing car is the best possible. The wealth of tools, the ease of management, the integration with the world of storage, and the advantage of the DR give me the ability to do everything better, cheaper, and more long lastingly. In my opinion we saved more than 50% as compared to physical servers and software.

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."
