福岡ひびき信用金庫(Fukuoka-Hibiki Shinkin Bank)

 

VMware EVO:RAIL enables creation of an easy-to-use,low-cost disaster recovery site and lowers TCO 40%

Fukuoka Hibiki Shinkin Bank sought to meet its security obligations by establishing a server virtualization framework and virtual desktop environment using VMware technology. In a move to ensure smooth business continuity, EVO:RAIL was adopted as an integral part of a disaster recovery site for the bank’s systems. Choosing this hyper-converged infrastructure appliance from VMware gave rise to significantly positive results including shorter adoption lead times and reduced costs.

“After deploying EVO:RAIL, operation management costs dropped to a 10th of what they would have been if we’d opted for a redundant blade server approach. The EVO:RAIL package is a great bargain. We’ve calculated EVO:RAIL adoption has lowered our TCO by 40%.”

— Atsushi Yoshida, Vice President of the Office of the Faculty's Systems Group, Fukuoka Hibiki Shinkin Bank

Beiersdorf Shared Services

 

From head to toe – Beiersdorf is virtualising its global server environment using VMware’s vCloud Suite

Beiersdorf Shared Services (BSS) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Beiersdorf AG and as a partner of Beiersdorf, BSS shares its expertise with the entire Group. In particular, the BSS operates the entire IT and accounting of the company. In order to respond more quickly to requests from its parent company, the BSS decided to virtualize the entire server landscape at its headquarters in Hamburg and at 80 locations around the world. The biggest challenge was the virtualization of business-critical applications. Today, however, the BSS is able to reduce costs and speed up processes.

“IT is nowadays resulting in costs savings for us since a large number of processes can be accelerated. Investment in IT is enabling us to respond to business queries and to our competitors’ projects within one to two days – and not within four to six weeks as in the past.”

— Andreas Liehmann, Manager Server Platform, Beiersdorf Shared Services

Creative Solutions in Healthcare

 

Creative Solutions in Healthcare Improves Patient Outcomes with VMware vCloud Air

Creative Solutions in Healthcare decided to migrate from its co-located physical environment to the cloud to save costs, improve application availability, and update its core infrastructure to comply with HIPAA requirements. The company turned to VMware to migrate quickly to a more robust infrastructure. Using VMware vCloud Air, they gained the technology and control to achieve HIPAA certification and improve application availability while reducing the IT budget by one-third. The company has been able to extend its capabilities to the cloud and implemented a sophisticated electronic health record (EHR) system, including electronic prescriptions and online physician orders, to improve staff agility and patient care.

“The vCloud Air team had the best onboarding process for any IT project that I’ve been involved with in the last 20 years. We haven't looked back.”

“The infrastructure in a HIPAA-compliant environment needs to be secure with controls for change management and the right firewalls and technology to protect the perimeter. Before moving to vCloud Air, we had policies in place, but we didn’t have the infrastructure to support them. On vCloud Air, we’ve deployed technical controls on our core infrastructure and anti-virus and other solutions in a holistic approach to security that allows us to comply with regulations and achieve HIPAA certification.”

“We have better patient outcomes because of vCloud Air. Our use of the cloud translates directly to technology availability and better capabilities in the hands of our talented, compassionate staff.”

— Shawn Wiora, CIO, Creative Solutions in Healthcare

Union Hospital

 

Union Hospital Boosts Business Critical Application Performance on VMware Virtual SAN

Faced with aging hardware and maxed-out resources, Union Hospital preferred to replace its existing SAN and migrate to a different and better platform for its Tier-1 VM storage, Virtual SAN, a hyper-converged solution that provides scale-out capabilities and the best integration with the entire VMware stack. The decision not only saved money and helped right size their storage environment, it also solved key application performance challenges and freed up operational resources, positioning Union Hospital for future expansion.

“We actually had clinics calling us up to say how much faster the apps were running once they were in a pure Virtual SAN environment. … It seems like the more things we migrate to Virtual SAN, the more people are begging to be on it.”

— Chad Elliott, Network Systems Consultant, Union Hospital

VIF International Education

 

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.”

— Mark Haney, Senior Systems Engineer, VIF International Education

Adobe

 

VMware Virtual SAN Helps Adobe Realize Vision of Software-Defined Data Center

As subscriptions to Adobe Marketing Cloud increased, the storage team had difficulties scaling the platform because of the legacy direct-attached storage (DAS) architecture. Since a traditional storage-area network (SAN) solution would be too expensive and complex and a physical overhaul of the storage infrastructure was out of the question, the team explored a virtual solution. After all, Adobe’s computing resources were already virtualized using VMware vSphere—why not do the same for storage? Adobe explored VMware Virtual SAN and determined it was exactly the kind of solution they needed. The results? Virtual SAN not only delivered a cost-effective solution, it also outperformed traditional SAN and DAS solutions. And since system administrators can operate Virtual SAN with no additional training, Adobe can devote their highly skilled storage experts to strategic projects and increase overall operations efficiency.

“Virtual SAN is a highly efficient solution compared to a traditional SAN or DAS approach. By aggregating storage into a single resource pool, Virtual SAN enables us to be much more cost conscious.”

“We can stand up a chassis with Virtual SAN in just hours,” van Rooyen says. Plus,“Virtual SAN has automation capabilities that allow us to deploy compute resources and storage resources as a single operation—in minutes, not hours or days.”

— Frans van Rooyen, Cloud Architect, Adobe

“(DRaaS) enables us to grow faster than we are growing currently, and really enables us to be more efficient and flexible in what we are doing. Instead of having to keep two different data centers up and running, to ensure there is an up or down, or cold or hot data center, this enables us to ensure that it is the efficiency that we gain by only having to do the exercise once.”
