Fashion retailer gains affordable, secure redundancy and disaster recovery with VMware solutions
“Virtualization has really worked out for us—we saw immediate benefits from VMware solutions. Today we are 60-70% virtualized, with vSphere in our main data center. For our small offices, with very limited resources, we have deployed VMware ESX servers.”
HDFC Bank Limited
HDFC Bank needed to launch hundreds of branches quickly to provide banking services to 40 million new customers from rural and regional India. The financial services company developed a ‘Branch in a VM’ concept to meet this objective and, between 2008 and 2012, opened more than 1,700 branches. The bank can now provision a new branch in less than 10 days.
"In the past it could take up to a couple of months to setup a new branch. With VMware virtualization, we can do this in under 10 days."

The IT Team at Holmes Place at its Fittest with VMware
“Today virtualization of servers is a no-brainer. Every IT manager in a large institution knows that this is the direction of the entire industry. The intelligent thing to do is to take the additional step and adopt other virtualization tools, in order to make IT maintenance more efficient.”
Hong Kong Housing Society
The Housing Society has offices throughout the city-state, and when swine flu reached Hong Kong in 2009, the organization realized it needed an alternative location to ensure some employees could still access vital tenancy information and critical services should there be an infectious disease epidemic or natural disaster. The organization virtualized its data center five years ago on VMware vSphere® to consolidate its sprawling physical infrastructure and has achieved 94 percent virtualization. All mission critical applications are now virtualized, including its iHousing system for tenancy management, Microsoft Exchange Server, and Oracle JD Edwards financial application. The organization worked with VMware to design and implement a virtual desktop infrastructure solution delivered by VMware® Horizon ViewTM.
"A virtual desktop solution delivers greater flexibility to our employees because the data follows them rather than tying them to a single location. We had a strong relationship with VMware and existing expertise in the vSphere server virtualization software, and so it made good business sense to virtualize our desktops with VMware."
Hungarian National Bank (Magyar Nemzeti Bank)
Az MNB szervervirtualizációs projektje a VMware ESX Server 3.5-ös verziójával indult, de a platform legújabb, 4.0-s verzióra történő frissítése a HP-val kötött support szerződésnek is része. A virtualizált szerverek felügyeletére a jegybank a VMware vCenter megoldását vezette be. Az MNB a hardvererőforrások átlagosan 70 százalékos kihasználását tűzte ki célul, ami a projekt eredményeként a gyakorlatban megvalósult. A jegybank a VMware virtualizációs megoldásával ötödére csökkentette a szervergépek számát, amivel arányosan csökkent a kiszolgálók hely- és a hűtésigénye is. A magasabb rendelkezésreállású hardverkiszolgálók és az egységesen felügyelhető virtuális szerverek az üzemeltetés és karbantartás hatékonyságát is hasonló mértékben növelték, így az ezzel összefüggő költségek is csökkentek. Ezzel az MNB a VMware alapú virtualizációs projekt valamennyi sikerkritériumát eredménnyel teljesítette.
“Due to the extra importance of the national bank’s role, a virtualisation solution already well-proven in the market and providing high standards of support and having adequate references in Hungary could be considered only. VMware’s virtualisation technology met these strict requirements.”
VMware vSphere provides a dynamic, manageable and cost-effective infrastructure to run critical applications. VMware ThinApp isolates legacy applications, minimizing disruption from patching and management activities.
