VIF International Education

 

VMware vCloud Air at VIF International Education

VIF International Education, headquartered in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, provides an exchange program for international educators who want to teach in the United States, and offers educational programs and resources to develop global citizens. When usage for its Learning Center platform grew from 1,500 to more than 8,000 users in one year, the platform experienced outages and bandwidth issues that impacted the user experience. By migrating to vCloud Air, the platform has 99.999 percent availability, providing a consistent experience for teachers, while using only one-third of the compute resources as the on-premises facilities.

“Our goal is to provide International education and experience s to students everywhere regardless of their background or location and to do this, we need to find very scalable programs that we can build that can expand broadly across large territories and school districts and countries and to connect these students with teachers all around the world in a way that is scalable, user friendly and efficient and cost effective and we have to have a partner that can grow with us and that’s why we are excited about our partnership with VMware.”

VIF International Education Runs its Global Learning Platform Three Times Faster with VMware vCloud Air

VIF International Education, headquartered in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, provides an exchange program for international educators who want to teach in the United States, and offers educational programs and resources to develop global citizens. When usage for its Learning Center platform grew from 1,500 to more than 8,000 users in one year, the platform experienced outages and bandwidth issues that impacted the user experience. By migrating to vCloud Air, the platform has 99.999 percent availability, providing a consistent experience for teachers, while using only one-third of the compute resources as the on-premises facilities.

“The fact that vCloud Air allows me to use the same vSphere interface to manage both our internal servers and our systems in the cloud just makes life a whole lot easier. I don’t have to learn a new system and a new interface. Even better, I don’t have to teach it to anyone else.”

Ziv Medical Center

 

Ziv Medical Center in Zefat previously had various distributed systems across the hospital and they wanted to unify them using a single solution which will be easy to manage, allow them to gain a unified view of all the systems simply and easily, and, of course, will be highly resilient. That's why they chose VMware View. The VMware view solution that they implemented at the zivMedical Center consists of two resilient storage systems that work in a cluster. This system caters for around 1,000 work stations. It's an environment that works as a 'Kiosk'. Their users enjoy a new work environment, a very fast one, with excellent response times. As a user logs in, he gets exactly what he needs. It's an environment that goes everywhere with him, it's dedicated to him - and roams with him. Doctors for example, may work in several different wards. They may finish work in one ward, log out, move to the next ward, log in - and receive a new environment that is adapted to their exact needs.

"The Ziv Medical Center in Zefat was founded roughly a century ago. It serves around 150,000 residents in the upper Galilee region, among them cities such as Karmiel, Kiryat Shmona, and Hatzor. This is the northernmost hospital in Israel and it therefore also often serves the IDF. They operate 1,000 PCs, 700 printers, and 80 servers, which are mostly VMware's. The vast majority of systems in the hospital are computerized. This includes labs, ORs, X Ray facilities, external infirmaries, hospital admissions, the trauma center and more. Our IT unit employs 11 people. One needs to understand that the systems we manage are life-supporting. These systems must be constantly up and running".

— Zion Levy, Head of IT Department, Ziv Medical Center

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

Der Arbeitsplatz der Zukunft ist flexibel und bietet individualisierte Möglichkeiten für die Wahl des Arbeitsortes und der Arbeitszeit. Dieser Grundsatz ist im Personalleitbild der kantonalen Verwaltung des Kantons Appenzell Ausserrhoden verankert. Doch führt diese Anforderung umfassende Herausforderungen an die IT-Infrastruktur mit sich. Diese liegen vor allen Dingen in einer vereinheitlichten Hard- und Softwarelandschaft, denn nur so lässt sich das Gesamtsystem langfristig effizient betreiben.

"Seit mehreren Jahren setzt der Kanton Lösungen von VMware ein, Unsere positiven Erfahrungen haben massgeblich zum Entscheid für die Horizon View Lösung von VMware beigetragen."

— Peter Diesenbacher, ICT System Spezialist und Projektleiter NEW bei ARI

BFI Wien

 

Virtualisierung mit VMware bringt dem BFI einfachen zentralen Support und große Einsparungen Das Berufsförderungsinstitut BFI Wien betreut pro Jahr rund 50.000 Schulungs-Teilnehmer. Die Verwaltung der vielfältigen Kurse und die Vorbereitung der Räume gestalteten sich immer aufwendiger. Daher wurde ein nächstes Virtualisierungsprojekt begonnen, es ermöglicht zahlreiche Desktop-Services und den Umstieg auf Zeroclients. Das Ergebnis sind Vereinfachung des Supports, höhere Verfügbarkeit und Kostensenkung, auch durch den viel geringeren Stromverbrauch.

„Die großen Überschriften lauten hohe Verfügbarkeit, geringerer Stromverbrauch, Vereinfachung des Supports. Auf die tägliche Arbeit umgelegt heißt das: keine Raumbindungen mehr für Schulungen und deren Vorbereitung, auch können wir mehrere Software- Versionen desselben Produkts gleichzeitig starten, das ist bei Office der Fall.”

— Erwin Wawra, IT-Fachreferent
