NX Systems

 

NX Systems’ journey to the Software-Defined Data Center

NX Systems discusses how it has improved the flexibility of its infrastructure to handle more transactions by using VMware vCloud Suite. The company has increased the number of transactions processed per second from two to over two hundred.

“When you have a team of four to five hundred in other companies, our department was about sixty. Obviously we had to do the economies of scale and scale it out properly. However, where before the stress of the organisation was on the IT department keeping up with the sales team’s direction, their promises, with management targets, etc. now that we are focused on the technology and we have brought it up to speed, we are lowering much of our involvement on operations and doing much more of the R&D, optimisation and re-factoring.”

— Jonathan Bowman, CTO, NX Systems

NX Systems

 

NX Systems talks about its journey with VMware so far and the solutions it is looking forward to deploying from the latest software-defined data center suite of products.

“The vSphere 6 announcement is very exciting for me – it provides two new features which we’ve been looking forward to for years – long distance vMotion and multi-core Fault Tolerance. VMware’s tighter integration between product components with vRealize automation operations and the SDDC are going to allow us to have a much more hands-off approach for the care and feeding of our infrastructure.”

— Matthew Sherian, Head of Engineering, NX Systems

Nyherji

 

Nyherji was looking for a way of simplifying its data centre infrastructure while being able to offer its customers a true hybrid cloud environment. Nyherji implemented VMware vSphere to virtualise its server estate, followed by VMware vCloud Suite to create an Infrastructure as a Service and hybrid cloud environment for its customers.

“VMware has enabled us to be the only managed service provider in Iceland which is able to offer our customers Infrastructure as a Service and the option of a hybrid cloud. VMware is incredibly well respected and was, in my view, the only company which we would feel comfortable partnering with. Not only does it have a strong heritage within virtualization and provisioning cloud environments, but we also feel that it offers us tremendous value for money both in terms of the ROI which we see from using these solutions and the VSPP licensing model it offers to us.”

— Helgi Björgvinsson, Solutions Architect, Nyherji

“If you want to deliver the ultimate promise of the cloud, of virtually unlimited capacity, you have to have a very smart capacity management tool or you will overspend. vCenter Operations is just that tool we need to be able to manage this very large estate without losing the visibility of individual behaviour of VMs that are critical to the business.”

— Christian Eychene, Vice President Orange Transformation, Orange Business Services

Oregon State University

 

The IT department at Oregon State University manages two open-use computer labs and one computer-equipped classroom. Because of financial restrictions, the university had originally purchased all of its servers with local storage, but that infrastructure could not handle the school’s growing workloads, and it required time-consuming upkeep. The university turned to the new VMware Virtual SAN product, which addresses these and other concerns while offering a simple and scalable solution that fits within its budget.

“Before Virtual SAN, we had no ability to scale. Now… it’s a piece of cake; if I want to add additional capacity, I just add an additional server. I don’t have to worry about whether my SAN can grow or not.”

— Alan Sprague, System Administrator, Oregon State University

Outdoor Research

 

Outdoor Research provides innovation and inspiration for the relentless adventurer, and develops innovative, functional, “bomb-proof” products that are beautiful in their efficiency and their simplicity. The company is ever-improving stewards of the environment, working to minimize its environmental impact and access and educational efforts of a variety of admirable nonprofit outdoor organizations.

“This has been an excellent learning experience for us with the VMware hosted solutions. We will likely leverage more opportunities in the future such as hosting more of our locally managed workloads, or the Disaster Recovery offering because of this experience. The VMware Sales team has been great to work with, the Technical Support team has been extremely responsive and we are on a ‘happy path’ for our hosting solution!”

— John Prince, IT Director, Outdoor Research

Oxford University

 

Oxford University is one of the oldest English speaking universities in the world. And it comprises 38 colleges and over 70 academic departments with around 21,000 students.

Pacific Disaster Center

 

Pacific Disaster Center (PDC) uses information, science, and technology to enable effective evidence-based decision making and to promote disaster risk reduction (DRR) concepts and strategies. The Center provides multi-hazard warning and decision support tools to facilitate informed decision making and critical information sharing, supporting appropriate and effective actions. PDC also conducts advanced risk assessments that integrate hazard exposure with socio-economic factors for vulnerability and capacity, so the disproportionate impact on populations can be better understood, and then mitigated through improved preparedness and planning processes.

“vCloud Air has been great. Customer service has been wonderful along with technical support. The time to deploy applications has been halved and in some cases cut even further.”

— Randol Stancil, Network Engineer, Pacific Disaster Center

It’s hugely critical to our customers. Many of them will walk away from cloud options around that issue alone.”

— Ed Horst, Vice President of Business Development, Perforce
