National Physician Services Stretches Geographic Reach, Reduces Risk of Data Loss with VMware vCloud Air Solution

Founded by physicians more than 10 years ago, National Physician Services sells and supports third-party tools for practice management and electronic health records (EHR) that help physicians improve the quality of care they deliver to their patients.

Cloud Based Disaster Recovery is Changing how VMware Customers do Business

Have you ever wondered how a comprehensive disaster recovery strategy could be implemented in the cloud? What applications can you protect in the cloud? Can you simplify your environment at a lower cost? What are the core benefits achieved as a result of implementing disaster recovery in the cloud, verses an on-premises solution? On March 25th, 2015 8.00 am PST, we hosted a Google+ Hangout event featuring VMware experts and our customers as they provide a technical deep-dive into the VMware vCloud Air Disaster Recovery service. They shared some of the challenges they faced as well as best practices for solutions to those challenges and ways the service has helped their various businesses.

“The cost difference between doing it yourself versus hosting it on VMware was really something that was attractive to us. And it only took us about six months from the day I joined The Hut Group to the day that we were able to stand up and test a fully functioning website. We never failed a production but we were able to replicate the full production databases out of the full production website and to do that within 6 months makes me feel very good but it also gave the executives comfort that they knew that we now had a solution which would be useful and known when we came to have a disaster.”

— Schalk vd Merwe, IT Director, The Hut Group

California Natural Resources Agency

 

California Natural Resources Agency Gains Agility Across Multiple Agencies Through a Software-Defined Data Center Strategy

A Briefings Direct podcast on how a large state agency is harnessing virtualization to do more with less and remain agile and efficient.

“We consider VMware a strategic partner. We basically only want to work with business partners. We don’t want to work with vendors, because we don’t need someone to sell us something and walk away. VMware has been hand-in-hand with us for this whole journey.”

“From looking at VMware, virtualization is the standard. If you don’t take it on, then you really won’t be able to respond to business needs. When the official IT organization becomes obsolete, there are going to be ad-hoc IT organizations and those would become the norm. If you want to be relevant, you have to use every tool set that you can to provide the business needs.”

Yorkshire and Humber Commissioning Support

 

Yorkshire and Humber Commissioning Support increases GP productivity and enhances patient care with VMware® Horizon™ 6

Yorkshire and Humber Commissioning Support (YHCS) is a key driver of innovation across GP surgeries and health centres throughout the region. YHCS wanted to provide greater flexibility for GPs and clinicians to enhance both patient and GP experience. The YHCS IT team chose VMware Horizon 6 to deliver Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and the ability for GPs to access clinical applications from any location. The solution has transformed patient experience and GPs’ work/life balance whilst reducing the cost of desktop PCs.

“VMware Horizon 6 has been transformative on many levels. Enabling our GPs to access applications from any internet connected device means they can treat patients from the comfort of their own home, with the same speed and efficiency as if they were in the surgery.”

— Melanie Daly, Enterprise Architecture and Innovation, Yorkshire & Humber

Kingston University

 

Kingston University to transform student learning experience with mobile working and BYOD using VMware® Horizon™ 6 and Atlantis

As part of a campaign to position itself as the university of choice for today’s increasingly tech-savvy market, Kingston University is now using VMware Horizon 6 to transform the way IT services are delivered to its students and staff members. By allowing access to course materials and graphic intensive applications remotely and from any device, Kingston University has allowed its staff and students to work and study in the way which best suits them.

Additionally, the university has been able to manage its 7,000 physical desktops from a central management console, drastically cutting the time it takes to provide software updates including major operating system upgrades (Windows XP to Windows 7), bug fixes, repairs and full system recovery. The IT team is also able to start-up and recover individual desktops in less than a quarter of the time previously taken, enabling Kingston to devote IT resources towards innovative new projects. This VDI environment is supported by Atlantis’ virtualized storage solution, ILIO to ensure optimum performance of the virtual PCs.

“Technology is absolutely essential for both attracting students and ensuring they have the best academic experience. We strongly believe that universities have to constantly evolve their entire technology offering - from infrastructure and networking, to the applications they make available and how they are accessed - if they are going to remain competitive and meet the expectations of new and prospective students. VMware Horizon 6 allows us to give students the freedom to work from any location – whether that is on campus or at home – while still being able to access their university desktop, complete with all the applications they need for their course. With VMware Horizon, I believe Kingston University offers one of the country’s most complete and compelling access to learning environments in the UK.”

— Simon Harrison, CIO, Kingston University

Fastweb

 

Fastweb taps into new market opportunities, achieving 100% ROI within the first year while reducing the Total Cost of Ownership of Virtual Desktops with VMware Horizon Air

With revenues in excess of €1.5m and nearly two million customers, Fastweb is the largest alternative operator of fixed-line telecommunications and ICT solutions in Italy. Fastweb delivers business value added services such as cloud computing, security and converging communications to residential and business customers.

“Previously, when a customer asked for virtual desktops, we would need to set up their own physical infrastructure and configure the necessary software, which was very costly and time intensive; so much so that many SMBs could not see the financial advantage of virtual desktops. However by delivering through VMware Horizon Air we can provide desktops ‘on-demand’ with businesses only paying for what they need and when they need it. Multi-tenancy is a must for successful cloud delivery and partnering with VMware therefore became essential to achieving this.”

— Matteo Frare Barutti, ICT Solutions Architect, Fastweb
