BDP International

 

BDP International Leverages VMware Horizon® to Seamlessly Deliver Desktops and Applications

BDP International leverages VMware Horizon to seamlessly deliver desktops and applications, supporting the company’s vision to deliver the best logistics experience in the world.

“We were excited BDP was finally in a position where now we were on a globalized collaboration platform, but were unable to deliver it in a responsive manner to our users globally.”

“VMware was a neat opportunity to not only try out a technology that I had a lot of confidence in, but also a name change to show that we are progressing and moving away from what was then Citrix.”

— Jason Bullock, Executive Director of IT Global Infrastructure & Support, BDP International

NetApp

 

NetApp delivers secure, seamless virtualized desktops and applications for nearly 10,000 users in 12 days using VMware Horizon

Leveraging VMware Horizon®, NetApp successfully deployed virtualized environments globally to nearly 10,000 users in 12 days. Users have secure access to internal resources within a familiar desktop experience across devices and NetApp corporate offices.

“We’ve been able to increase productivity by enabling engineers to start and stop work whenever they need to. Engineers don’t have to be chained to their desks in order to get work done securely. Whether building code on a work laptop or reading internal wikis on a phone, employees can access a secure environment from all devices without a diminished experience.”

Hartlepool College of Further Education

 

Hartlepool College saves £32k a year and increases student retention with VMware® Horizon™

Hartlepool College of Further Education was looking to improve the student and staff’s Virtual Desktop experience, in order to increase student retention, grow prospect numbers and offer remote working for the teaching and administrative staff.

To solve this, Hartlepool College deployed VMware Horizon to offer end-users a virtualized desktop solution. This would enable students to access their own applications from any virtual PC in the college, whilst greatly improving user experience and reliability and PC performance.

“You can’t overestimate the importance of technology within our college. For students, the level of IT we offer can make the difference between whether they stay on to graduate, or drop out. With our funding directly tied to student enrolment and course completion, we wanted to invest in an IT system that would impress prospects and enable current students to be more productive and achieve better grades. VMware Horizon did exactly that; while previously we spent all our time putting out fires and attempting to deal with the hundreds of help desk calls we received, we are now able to offer a smooth, reliable service for both students and staff. The IT department has gone from being an area of perennial complaint to one of the college’s most valuable assets. The feedback has been incredible and we have increased student retention rate.”

— Gerald Nicholson, IT Manager, Hartlepool College of Further Education

Dammam University

 

University of Dammam Delivers Centralized, On-Demand Desktops and Applications with VMware

University of Dammam labs contain over 2000 units of physical PC desktops and laptops. A lot of resources were wasted on maintenance and support of these devices as any application installation or hardware issues were needed to be solved individually. Lab arrangements every semester needed to be done physically, through ghost images - a process that normally took over 3 days to complete. Additionally, the PCs were idle most of the day and needed to be replaced every 3 years.

"VMware Horizon View was the most cost effective solution to create and deliver desktops to our faculty and students. With VMware, we have significant cost savings on licenses, hardware requirements, and staff resources. Students, faculty and administrators have noted the improvement in desktop performance and the quality of service with faster changes with VMware Horizon View."

— Dr. Saad AlAmri, CIO, Dammam University

University of Massachusetts Lowell

University of Massachusetts Lowell is one of five campuses in the University of Massachusetts system. With a rapidly growing engineering program and an enrollment approaching 20,000 students by 2018, UMass Lowell needed more classroom space.

At the same time, the university wanted to make engineering education more accessible. In the past, courses required expensive workstations or laptops as well as software licenses, creating a barrier to entry for some students.

“All the students in the class can now pull out a device and start practicing what they just learned. The time from lecture to practice was reduced from weeks to seconds.”

— Steve Athanas, Director of platforms and systems engineering
