VMware View Improves Remote Access For Students While View Manager Increases Agility And Centralizes IT Management

“As a result of implementing VMware View we can offer a more diverse range of courses to our students and continue to be a leader in cutting edge research. Our students now have anytime, anywhere access to the resources they need to get the best university experience possible. Feedback from our students has been excellent. We have made an initial cost saving of £250,000 and expect to achieve further year-on-year savings and ROI within a year. Implementation was quick and easy, and our IT department can now spend less time on IT support issues and more on the projects which really matter to the development of our organisation.”

— Frank Razaghzadeh, Head fo IT

University of Montreal

 

University of Montreal Takes Advantage of Needed Refresh to Virtualize Desktops. Virtualization Cuts Costs, Reduces Environmental Impact, Improves Service to Students and Faculty

“We had an aging desktop infrastructure, obsolete management tools and a limited budget for renewal. Our solution goals were to simplify management, cut costs, reduce environmental impact and improve service to end users. VMware View pays off on all of these fronts.”

— Mario Therrien, Director, Office of Users Services, Information Technology and Communications Services

University of Óbuda, Neumann János Faculty of Information Technology

 

By the server and desktop side virtualisation of the educational environment, the Neumann János Faculty of IT was able to improve the efficiency of monitoring and energy consumption, therefore it is planning to continue future investments and developments in the same direction. An even higher advantage is, however, that by using virtualisation in a live environment, the teachers and students have the opportunity to acquire practical knowledge at the same time as learning theoretical studies. This includes fine tuning and optimisation of resource utilisation apart beyond the design and monitoring of virtualised environments. It is of high importance to the Neumann János Faculty of Information Technology to be able to teach state-of-the-art IT technologies not just on the theoretical level but in practice, too, because this is the precondition to provide to the students up-to-date knowledge with value on the labour market. Virtualisation occupies a distinguished place among these technologies. VMware Hungary provides all support it can in this field to the University of Óbuda in the form of professional advice, presentations and software licences.

“It is of utmost importance to us to be able to teach highly developed technologies like WMware View not only on a theoretical level but in practice, too, since this is the only way we can provide up-to-date knowledge to our students representing value on the labour market.”

— Dr. Tamás Schubert, Director, Institute of Information Systems, Neumann János Faculty of Information Technology, University of Óbuda

ASVZ

 

ASVZ heeft een grote groep ambulante medewerkers die bij de cliënt thuis toegang tot de applicaties moeten hebben, maar ook artsen die overal toegang tot de gegevens van cliënten moeten hebben. Dankzij desktopvirtualisatie van VMware met tweeweg-authenticatie hebben medewerkers overal toegang tot hun virtuele desktop. Hiermee heeft ASVZ het "any place, any time" en bijna "any device" gerealiseerd.

"Samen met onze partner hebben we binnen tien weken een productierijpe virtuele desktop omgeving opgezet. We hebben een zogenaamde ‘golden image’ ontwikkeld voor distributie en authenticatie. Hierdoor hebben medewerkers via hun desktop snel en veilig toegang tot de applicaties die zij voor hun werk nodig hebben."

— Leon Urbanus, Hoofd ICT, ASVZ

CHDR

 

Met VMware vSphere is het gehele serverpark van het CHDR gevirtualiseerd. Bovendien loopt er een pilotproject voor virtualisatie van de desktopomgeving op basis van VMware View.

“Met de server- en desktopvirtualisatie van VMware hebben we een goed fundament voor de toekomst gelegd. We kunnen onze groeiambities nu optimaal ondersteunen, zonder uitbreiding van de beheercapaciteit. Daarmee zijn de belangrijkste doelstellingen voor de modernisering van onze ICTomgeving door VMware ingevuld.”

— Ron Pluylaar, beleidsmedewerker IT bij Centrum Human Drug Research

Deltion College

 

Het Deltion College wilde zijn gebruikers ‘Anytime, Anywhere, Anyplace’ op een veilige manier kunnen laten werken, met als doel op alle mogelijke vlakken flexibiliteit te bieden. Er werd een virtuele werkplek beschikbaar gesteld voor alle gebruikers, op basis van 350 gelijktijdige VMware View-licenties. Gebruikers loggen nu via internet 100% veilig in en hebben overal en altijd toegang tot hun vertrouwde, persoonlijke desktop. Ze krijgen thuis dezelfde functionaliteit als op school.

"It used to take us much effort to make applications available outside the school premises that hold sensitive information, such as accounting packages. Now we only have to ensure that these applications run well within the View area. Users can launch applications at home within View, and we are guaranteed that the security is taken care off."

— Robert Vos, Manager Automatisering, Deltion College

Gemeente Zoetermeer

 

De gemeente Zoetermeer verving de verouderde desktops door virtuele desktops op basis van VMware View. De gemeente wilde resources on demand kunnen bijschakelen en kunnen inspelen op de snel veranderende markt. Ook dient de gemeente te voldoen aan compliancy-regels die onder meer stellen dat bepaalde activiteiten binnen twee dagen weer up-and-running moeten zijn na een calamiteit. Door over te stappen op desktopvirtualisatie kan de gemeente aan al deze eisen voldoen.

"Wij hebben een keuze gemaakt voor VMware View om een aantal belangrijke knelpunten op te lossen. Je moet hierbij denken aan verbeterde flexibiliteit. Flexibiliteit om vanaf elke werkplek in te loggen met behoud van eigen zelf samengestelde desktop beleving, plaatsonafhankelijk werken en het losknippen van de afhankelijkheden tussen hardware van de computer, besturingssystemen en de applicaties."

— Richard Thiele, ICT-projectleider, gemeente Zoetermeer

Stad & Esch

 

Desktop virtualization based on VMware View offers Stad & Esch the ability to offer Windows applications centrally. This simplifies the management, installation and updates of applications. Moreover, it is easy to adapt server capacity and memory settings for frequently used applications or concurrent use by large groups of students. By deploying VMware View Stad & Esch enhanced the performance of the desktop environment and the management efforts have decreased. This leads to an optimal user experience for students and teachers.

“Desktopvirtualisatie biedt onze organisatie, leerlingen en docenten veel voordelen. Met VMware View bieden we leerlingen nu ook de Windows-omgeving centraal aan. Hierdoor is de beheersbaarheid verbeterd en het gebruiksgemak toegenomen. Installaties en updates doen we centraal, waardoor leerlingen altijd met de nieuwste versies werken en de performance op peil blijft.”

— Jan-Albert Emmelkamp, ICT-coördinator Stad & Esch

Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB)

 

De zwervende studentenpopulatie heeft nood aan een gebruiksvriendelijke en uitermate flexibele desktopomgeving die ook remote toegankelijk is. En tegelijk voldoende garanties bidet op het vlak van performantie en gepersonaliseerde toegang. Centraal en geautomatiseerd beheer moet de workload aanzienlijk beperken. Daarbij moet de totale investering gespreid kunnen gebeuren. VMware vSphere en View bieden voor een haalbaar budget een virtualisatieplatform dat de faculteit op eigen tempo kan uitrollen. En bidet een duidelijke meerwaarde voor zowel studenten als docenten. Dankzij de intelligente technologie realiseert het IT-team een aanzienlijke winst aan e! ciëntie, tijd en workload en is het platform studentproof zodat performantie en uptime te allen tijde verzekerd blijven.

“Het is een must dat de student kan plaatsnemen achter een thin client op de campus of zijn computer thuis, daar een USB-stick of e-ID lezer connecteert en moeiteloos kan verder werken op het virtueel platform.”

— John Kellen, IT manager Faculteit Geneeskunde en Farmacie, VUB
