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.”

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."
