Germany’s ADAC e.V. is Europe’s largest automobile association with more than 18 million members using the company’s various services from roadside assistance to automobile insurance. ADAC decided to move several smaller offices into one main office location in Munich. This enabled them to introduce a new way for their employees to work. Employees now have the option to sit at any desk in any part of the building and can easily access their desktop wherever they are. VMware Mirage was selected as it was the only product with the ability to migrate all of the companies applications, application data, user data and operating system.
“We achieved a very smooth migration, 2.400 machines, 1,100 applications, we have the same look and feel as we did before and we did all this in only 3 weeks.”

”Our cloud-based Virtual Data Center strengthens the customer’s position. The customer has control over everything with vCloud Director: management of the virtual environment, firewall protection, network configuration, through to cloud-compliant application management using vApps. This gives our customers greater freedom in making their decisions, and they can use their infrastructure more productively.”
EDS Turns to VMware Server Virtualization to Support Australian Customers
“The increasing maturity of virtualization and the growing support from independent software vendors is helping fuel deployment of VMware virtualization across production environments. This means more businesses are redeploying or disposing of inefficient hardware and consolidating their data center infrastructure onto multiple virtual server environments, thus contributing to a reduction in power consumption.”
EPFL (École Polytechnique Fédérale De Lausanne)
École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) is a Federal Institute of Technology based in Lausanne in Switzerland, they have over 9,000 students and 4,500 staff members. EPFL needed to design, implement and maintain a centralized virtual infrastructure to meet the needs of the entire school. They also needed to reduce total cost of ownership and lower power consumption. vCenter Operations has transformed the way their library storage requirements are supported enabling effective predictions for capacity and a hybrid cloud model has been adopted to provide the ability to extend their infrastructure into the public cloud. As well as a 33% reduction in TCO and 80% reduction in power consumption, EPFL have also experienced increased capacity and optimization through the effective management of their cloud infrastructure.
“We invested in vCenter Operations to support our large infrastructure of 500 VMs and 40 hosts. It has enabled us to predict capacity needs and to easily locate any performance issues.”
VMware Infrastructure Enables Cost-Effective Operation of Multiple Virtual Machines on Consolidated Server Hardware
“VMware virtualization has enabled us to support a sharp rise in staff numbers without investing in several new physical servers or significantly upgrading our data center space, cooling and power.”
To improve operational efficiencies, Hertz International had a choice of either refreshing its existing infrastructure across its European locations at considerable expense, or implementing newer technologies. In addition to centralising the server estate, Hertz International wanted to simplify its complex desktop infrastructure, which constituted a considerable capital investment. Having over 4,000 PCs and laptops spread over 1,000 sites around Europe, upkeep and maintenance of these were real issue in terms of time, resource and cost. Following a review of the major offerings on the market, Hertz International decided to implement VMware View as it best suited the organisation’s needs and would easily integrate with its existing server virtualization infrastructure. It also made a decision to replace legacy desktop devices with zero client Wyse terminals.
“By virtualizing our server and desktop estate with VMware, we’ve cut costs, dramatically simplified our IT infrastructure and transformed how we support over 1000 desktops in our service centre in Dublin. We’re able to create and deliver even more innovative technology services to our users, while enhancing the experience we provide to our customers. The platform VMware has enabled us to build has given us extremely strong foundations to realise even greater benefits, as we add more and more services and extend the research of the programme internationally.”
ISS Facility Services Australia Ltd
VMware Infrastructure enabled the consolidation of more than 100 disparate servers to a virtualized environment. The new environment also reduces net power consumption, carbon emissions and datacenter real estate requirements.
“There was no credible solution other than VMware. Deploying virtualization enabled us to reduce the number of datacenters we were operating from three to two, a substantial saving in operating costs alone. It has also allowed us to slash 150 tons from our annual CO2 emissions.”
VMware Desktop Virtualization Enables Creation Of Multiple Environments With Isolated Operating Systems And Services While Server Virtualization Constrains Hardware Sprawl And Delivers A Flexible Infrastructure At Minimal Cost
"While we invested an additional A$200,000 or so in upgraded storage, we saved about A$500,000 in combined storage and server hardware we would have had to purchase had we not implemented VMware.”
