“A huge benefit for us is that we have an immediate addressable market. Using the VMware technologies we have been instantly accepted in the market, without having to now educate and court them. This also extends to the training of our reseller base, who are already comfortable with the VMware technologies,”

Cork Institute of Technology

 

Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) is a Third level college based in the south of Ireland in Cork. The challenges they were looking to address in CIT was in relation to the online delivery of cloud computing courses. VMware View allowed them to deploy virtual desktops to the students and also they choose vCloud Director Product to deploy labs to students as well. Since these students use their own vAPP; with vCloud director, the vAPPs are segregated and they are isolated from other vAPPS so they can manipulate these tools, test these tools and not affect the network surrounding.

"We have been forging industry links with VMware and we had worked quite closely with VMware in developing cloud computing academic programmes and it was through these links and through the positive experience we had with VMware products previously that we decided to choose VMware View as the desktop deployment solution and vCloud Director."

— Irene Griffin, Cloud Computing Officer, Cork Institute of Technology

This was hugely disruptive for a small business.”

“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.”

— Helgi Björgvinsson, Solutions Architect, Nyherji

St Edmund’s College

“We’re really excited by what VMware’s technology has brought to St Edmund’s College. By giving pupils the opportunity to use their own devices, the children have become much more engaged within lessons and are able to experience new ways of working. Being able to access the school network from home or within the boarding houses is also allowing them to become more efficient and independent learners. Alongside this, we’ve also seen some significant cost and environmental savings for the school through increased energy efficiency and reduced maintenance costs.”
