Region Hovedstaden

 

VMware AlwaysOn Point of Care Solution helps improve patient care in Region Hovedstaden, the Capital Region of Denmark. By the mid-2000s, the Danish government regislated for healthcare providers to improve an impossible situation where legacy IT systems was negatively impacting patient care. Region H tasked its IT department with providing 25,000 healthcare workers with an e ective, fast and agile workspace, accessible from any device, anywhere. Out of a number of possible solutions, they chose the VMware AlwaysOn Point of Care Solution, leading to time savings, improved productivity, and reduced support costs.

“We chose VMware for this project because of its product and engagement flexibility, which we saw in the pilot phase. This has lived up to our expectations during the production implementation.”

— Morten Møllegaard, lead technical project manager

Region Hovedstaden

 

VMware Professional Services to Bring Virtualization to Danish Health Care System. Working closely with a VMware Technical Account Manager, the region is making effective use of VMware Horizon View to support 25,000 clinicians. Region H had used VMware server solutions for several years, and they wanted to extend the benefits of virtualization out into the organization with a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). In particular, it wanted to give its 25,000 clinicians—who are on the front line of delivering care— fast, easy, and secure access to the IT systems they need to do their jobs. To do so, Region H decided to implement VMware Horizon View for desktop virtualization.

“The TAM felt like someone who was very much ‘our man’ and looked at things from our point of view. And this saved time and effort for us.”

— Morten Møllegaard, lead technical project manager working with Region H

Seventy Seven Energy faced a number of business and IT challenges that caused the organization to select VMware Horizon Air as their solution for cloud-hosted desktops. The company had a limited IT staff and had to quickly stand up a new infrastructure as a result of a spin-off from another organization. Within a few months, Seventy Seven Energy deployed Horizon Air as part of a cloud-first initiative to enable complete end-user computing services.

“Within a few months we were able to stand up Horizon Air.”

“The users have loved it. Horizon Air gives them the ability to access from anywhere.”

“VMware products have allowed us to be prepared for the future.”

Somerset School District

 

K-12 education has changed dramatically in recent years. According to Sara Eichten, principal at Somerset Middle School in Wisconsin, “The Common Core State Standards have drastically changed what we need to be doing with our students in both English language arts and mathematics, as well as focusing on disciplinary literacy in science, social studies, and other related arts classes.” So in May 2013 when Somerset School District was selected to participate in a pilot program to test the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) platform to meet the requirements of the Common Core State Standards Initiative, it looked to VMware for help. VMware Horizon View helped ease the deployment of the rigorous testing platform and deliver a seamless user experience to students.

"With VMware Horizon View, we didn’t experience any technical issues when we did the [Smarter Balanced] pilot. People were concerned about audio sound quality, videos, mouse movements—those things that are critical in high-stakes testing—but we saw no performance issues whatsoever in our environment. The virtual environment performed the way we expected it to, and we’re very happy with the results.”

— Ryan Sicard, Director of IT, Somerset School District

St Edmund’s College

 

St Edmund’s College needed to increase the efficiency and reliability of its IT estate, while enabling a new BYOD solution for pupils and teachers within the school. Using VMware software, the school has virtualized 95% of its servers and 70% of its desktop PCs, providing a new, central platform for managing IT.

“We’re really excited by what VMware’s technology has brought to St Edmund’s College. By giving pupils the opportunity to use their own devices, the children have become much more engaged within lessons and are able to experience new ways of working. Being able to access the school network from home or within the boarding houses is also allowing them to become more efficient and independent learners. Alongside this, we’ve also seen some significant cost and environmental savings for the school through increased energy efficiency and reduced maintenance costs.”

— Paulo Durán, Headmaster, St Edmund’s College

Sydney Adventist Hospital

 

Sydney Adventist Hospital is the largest single-campus private hospital in New South Wales. With the healthcare industry recognising client Electronic Medical Records (EMR) as a cornerstone of reforms, this hospital decided to review how it delivered systems and applications in a clinical environment.

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

Times Internet Ltd

 

Times Internet, the digital content delivery organisation of Times India, embarked on an aggressive Private Cloud deployment to deliver an elastic, scalable and highly reactive IT infrastructure. 3 datacentres were consolidated to two, and 800 physical servers consolidated to 100 VMs, all within months. With over 30 million unique visits every month, the Times Internet cloud brings high availability to media and content distribution.

"Two of the reasons for cloud were elasticity and scale. On Times of India if there is big news, you will see traffic growth to about 200 to 300%. At that point in time, if you didn’t have elastic infrastructure, you would have trouble in scaling that operation."
