VMware vCloud Air at VIF International Education

VIF International Education, headquartered in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, provides an exchange program for international educators who want to teach in the United States, and offers educational programs and resources to develop global citizens. When usage for its Learning Center platform grew from 1,500 to more than 8,000 users in one year, the platform experienced outages and bandwidth issues that impacted the user experience. By migrating to vCloud Air, the platform has 99.999 percent availability, providing a consistent experience for teachers, while using only one-third of the compute resources as the on-premises facilities.

“Our goal is to provide International education and experience s to students everywhere regardless of their background or location and to do this, we need to find very scalable programs that we can build that can expand broadly across large territories and school districts and countries and to connect these students with teachers all around the world in a way that is scalable, user friendly and efficient and cost effective and we have to have a partner that can grow with us and that’s why we are excited about our partnership with VMware.”

VIF International Education Runs its Global Learning Platform Three Times Faster with VMware vCloud Air

VIF International Education, headquartered in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, provides an exchange program for international educators who want to teach in the United States, and offers educational programs and resources to develop global citizens. When usage for its Learning Center platform grew from 1,500 to more than 8,000 users in one year, the platform experienced outages and bandwidth issues that impacted the user experience. By migrating to vCloud Air, the platform has 99.999 percent availability, providing a consistent experience for teachers, while using only one-third of the compute resources as the on-premises facilities.

“The fact that vCloud Air allows me to use the same vSphere interface to manage both our internal servers and our systems in the cloud just makes life a whole lot easier. I don’t have to learn a new system and a new interface. Even better, I don’t have to teach it to anyone else.”

VIF International Education and VMware

 

User traffic on VIF International Education's Learning Center, an online professional development platform for K–12 educators, grew by more than 500 percent in one year, but its on-premises IT infrastructure couldn’t keep up. This mission-critical service was running on a single server blade without power or network redundancy, leading to unacceptably high downtime. By moving to the VMware vCloud® Air™ platform, VIF gained vastly higher availability and near-unlimited scalability, improved resource utilization by 300 percent, and reduced its IT systems management workload.

VIF International Education builds global education programs that prepare teachers and students for success in an interconnected world. Based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, the firm supports teachers, schools, and school districts with programs for professional development and curriculum, language acquisition, and cultural exchange. VIF is proud to be a B Corp, certified to meet specific standards for social and environmental performance. VIF is dedicated to developing globally competent citizens with the skills to thrive in an increasingly global marketplace.

“VMware vCloud Air represents for us the opportunity to deliver on our mission to deliver global education for all.”

VMware IT

 

To improve service delivery agility and responsiveness to application developers and test engineers, VMware’s operations organization implemented VMware vRealize™ Suite to accelerate its application delivery process. By automating the end-to-end provisioning and test process as well as leveraging VMware internal private cloud infrastructure services, VMware slashed the time needed to deliver workloads to the development team, increased the predictability of provisioning tasks, and decreased IT costs. The result helped VMware become more agile by improving developer productivity while at the same time decreasing project risk and application backlog.

“By streamlining application delivery and ongoing management, VMware vRealize Suite frees up more time for development and allows IT to be more agile.”

Vodafone

 

Vodafone is one of the world’s leading mobile communications providers. Vodafone also offers cloud and hosting services to a number of businesses from a wide range of sectors, including banking and financial services, insurance, retail and the public sector.

Many of Vodafone’s customers were also now looking towards a hybrid approach to cloud computing, with the choice to deploy in either the public and private cloud environments and with easy movement of data and applications between the two. With this in mind Vodafone invest in vCloud Air – as it provided a hybrid cloud solution that could enable its customers to have this freedom and the associated benefits of a hybrid solution including speed of deployment of new products and services and reduced costs.

"A key challenge for adopting a hybrid cloud and also a key benefit is the requirement to move a workload from private cloud to the public cloud and back again, have workloads spanning both environments at the same time.

What appealed to us around vCloud Air was really two things: it’s based on the same hypervisor technology that is used in vSphere which enterprises will have deployed in their private cloud therefore you can do that seamless migration from private to public and back again.

In many of the public cloud offerings that exist today you actually have to export virtuial machine and transform it in order to migrate it into the target public cloud. vCloud Air takes that cost and complexity away."

Ziv Medical Center

 

Ziv Medical Center in Zefat previously had various distributed systems across the hospital and they wanted to unify them using a single solution which will be easy to manage, allow them to gain a unified view of all the systems simply and easily, and, of course, will be highly resilient. That's why they chose VMware View. The VMware view solution that they implemented at the zivMedical Center consists of two resilient storage systems that work in a cluster. This system caters for around 1,000 work stations. It's an environment that works as a 'Kiosk'. Their users enjoy a new work environment, a very fast one, with excellent response times. As a user logs in, he gets exactly what he needs. It's an environment that goes everywhere with him, it's dedicated to him - and roams with him. Doctors for example, may work in several different wards. They may finish work in one ward, log out, move to the next ward, log in - and receive a new environment that is adapted to their exact needs.

"The Ziv Medical Center in Zefat was founded roughly a century ago. It serves around 150,000 residents in the upper Galilee region, among them cities such as Karmiel, Kiryat Shmona, and Hatzor. This is the northernmost hospital in Israel and it therefore also often serves the IDF. They operate 1,000 PCs, 700 printers, and 80 servers, which are mostly VMware's. The vast majority of systems in the hospital are computerized. This includes labs, ORs, X Ray facilities, external infirmaries, hospital admissions, the trauma center and more. Our IT unit employs 11 people. One needs to understand that the systems we manage are life-supporting. These systems must be constantly up and running".

— Zion Levy, Head of IT Department, Ziv Medical Center
