Lake Land College
VMware Desktop Solution Helps Community College Satisfy Users’ Soaring Demands, Slash Energy Use

LAMCO Leverages Flexibility and Scalability of BlueLock’s Cloud to Manage and Wind-Down Assets of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.
“Cloud computing was the exact solution we were looking for. Often times, you build an infrastructure and then find that your assessment of on-demand needs are way off.”
“The savings we’ve made have been impressive and immediate, including over £200,000 in hardware in the first year alone. We’re able to provision extra capacity very quickly and we’ve doubled the lifespan of our existing hardware and achieved a major reduction in downtime. The transition to a virtual desktop model has not only reduced hardware and management costs, but we have delighted our users with the significantly improved quality of the IT service we now deliver to them.”
Larimer County Provides Agile, Cost-Effective Services to Citizens with VMware Software
“Our virtualized environment delivers significant cost savings and allows us to improve performance and service delivery at the same time. Normally, these two things don’t go together — service or performance generally take a hit when you’re trying to reduce costs,. In our VMware environment, we’re able to do both, which makes our clients and the CIO very happy.”
Liverpool Women's NHS Foundation Trust
Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust virtualized 90 percent of its IT estate within a year when it achieved a 12 to 1 server consolidation ratio, avoiding £300,000 in extra server investment.
“Virtualizing with VMware has made us far more agile as an organization. We’re able to develop and deliver new services more quickly than ever before, which ultimately makes a huge difference to our patient care. Virtualization has also been the foundation for our move to a new cloud infrastructure through which we will deliver IT services to our own users and have the capability to provide similar services to other NHS trusts. With cost savings the number one priority for the public sector today, VMware has already helped us achieve huge reductions across the board in our organisation including a 75 per cent savings in power costs.”

Lotnicze Pogotowie Ratunkowe
Brak fizycznej możliwości zainstalowania kolejnych serwerów skłonił dział IT w Lotniczym Pogotowiu Ratunkowym do decyzji o próbie wprowadzenia wirtualizacji do swojej infrastruktury. Brak miejsca hamował nie tylko rozwój usług świadczonych wewnątrz Lotniczego Pogotowia Ratunkowego, ale także ograniczał możliwość wdrożenia sprzętu potrzebnego do prowadzenia testów. Prowadzenie testów na fizycznych maszynach samo w sobie jest utrudnione i nieefektywne - przy maszynach wirtualnych wykonanie klona działającej maszyny wirtualnej lub stworzenie nowego serwera z wykonanego wcześniej wzorca to kwestia paru kliknięć myszką. W wyniku wdrożenia rozwiązań VMware firma uzyskała możliwość dalszego rozwoju dzięki skonsolidowaniu swoich serwerów. Ułatwione też zostało zarządzanie wirtualnymi serwerami oraz skrócono czas reakcji na potrzeby biznesowe. Ograniczono także pobór prądu elektrycznego, którego konsumpcja przy takiej liczbie fizycznych serwerów byłaby znacznie wyższa.
“Gdy wybieraliśmy oprogramowanie firmy VMware do wirtualizacji serwerów, nie było dla niego żadnej rozsądnej, stabilnej alternatywy. Dziś jesteśmy zadowoleni z tej decyzji i nie zamienilibyśmy go na rozwiązanie konkurencyjne.”

Mashreq has one of the region’s largest investments in virtualization, with the strategy that the overwhelming majority of its servers will be virtualized.
“Our return-on-investment calculations gave us a compelling reason to deploy VMware and reduce the proliferation of hardware in our data center while securing all of the performance and cost-saving benefits of virtualization, including maximizing system availability for Mashreq’s customers. We believe that VMware is the de facto standard for virtualization – VMware delivered and we’re very pleased with the results.”

McMaster University Engineers Virtualized Computer Lab
“The success of our virtualized engineering computer lab speaks for itself. Our VMware View 4 environment delivers the processing power we need to support our engineering students’ CAD and 3D simulation applications. As a virtualized environment, it is also sustainable, requiring 91 percent less power and cooling than our last traditional lab. We see VMware View 4 as an ideal model for any future computer labs.”
Medical Center of Central Georgia
Hospital Consolidates Datacenter Servers and Security for Compliance, Autofailover and Cost Reduction
“With VMware, we were not only able to consolidate our servers, but we gained built-in redundancy and failover in the event of any server. Along with failover, Trend Micro security has been key for increasing our confidence in the ability to avoid disruptions to patient-critical services.”
