University of Derby
The University of Derby wanted technology to improve the running of its IT estate, including its business critical applications running Oracle Databases. Having virtualized a number of smaller applications to start with by early 2012, the University of Derby decided to move its Oracle PeopleSoft applications across to its virtual infrastructure to help increase the efficiency and agility of services.
“We virtualised our most critical business applications with VMware and completely rely on it to keep them agile. We started virtualizing with VMware to save costs, but now it has become an absolutely crucial technology to support our current and future IT infrastructure”
University of Greenwich
VMware View Improves Remote Access For Students While View Manager Increases Agility And Centralizes IT Management
“As a result of implementing VMware View we can offer a more diverse range of courses to our students and continue to be a leader in cutting edge research. Our students now have anytime, anywhere access to the resources they need to get the best university experience possible. Feedback from our students has been excellent. We have made an initial cost saving of £250,000 and expect to achieve further year-on-year savings and ROI within a year. Implementation was quick and easy, and our IT department can now spend less time on IT support issues and more on the projects which really matter to the development of our organisation.”
University of Illinois
The University of Illinois identifies and solves issues with VMware vFabric tc Server. The University of Illinois is the premier public university in the state, operating campuses in Chicago, Springfield and Urbana Champaign.
“tc Server helps us reduce the number of potential problem sources and focus on the areas where the issue might exist, saving us hours on troubleshooting a problem.”
University of Malaya ICT and CSR Cluster
VMware vSphere enables the University of Malaya’s ICT and Computational Science Research Cluster to consolidate its server fleet, improve the return on its hardware investments, reduce its IT management load, and implement cloud computing.
“System administrators can create virtual machines within 30 minutes rather than wait months for new physical servers to be ordered and delivered.”
University of Malaya Specialist Centre
VMware virtualization enables University of Malaya Specialist Centre (UMSC) to respond quickly to clinicians’ need to access various clinical information systems, by making desktops available via mobile devices and fixed terminals. It also simplifies the provisioning and management of servers and computing resources. In addition, VMware allows UMSC to make computing resources available to all other operational staff quickly and efficiently.
“VMware has enabled us to provision mobile, secure desktops that clinicians can access from thick, thin or mobile clients from anywhere in our hospital campus or via a virtual private network.”
University of Montreal
University of Montreal Takes Advantage of Needed Refresh to Virtualize Desktops. Virtualization Cuts Costs, Reduces Environmental Impact, Improves Service to Students and Faculty
“We had an aging desktop infrastructure, obsolete management tools and a limited budget for renewal. Our solution goals were to simplify management, cut costs, reduce environmental impact and improve service to end users. VMware View pays off on all of these fronts.”
University of Óbuda, Neumann János Faculty of Information Technology
By the server and desktop side virtualisation of the educational environment, the Neumann János Faculty of IT was able to improve the efficiency of monitoring and energy consumption, therefore it is planning to continue future investments and developments in the same direction. An even higher advantage is, however, that by using virtualisation in a live environment, the teachers and students have the opportunity to acquire practical knowledge at the same time as learning theoretical studies. This includes fine tuning and optimisation of resource utilisation apart beyond the design and monitoring of virtualised environments. It is of high importance to the Neumann János Faculty of Information Technology to be able to teach state-of-the-art IT technologies not just on the theoretical level but in practice, too, because this is the precondition to provide to the students up-to-date knowledge with value on the labour market. Virtualisation occupies a distinguished place among these technologies. VMware Hungary provides all support it can in this field to the University of Óbuda in the form of professional advice, presentations and software licences.
“It is of utmost importance to us to be able to teach highly developed technologies like WMware View not only on a theoretical level but in practice, too, since this is the only way we can provide up-to-date knowledge to our students representing value on the labour market.”
University of South Carolina Upstate
Learn how the University of South Carolina Upstate is improving the manageability of its desktop environment with VMware View. The university calculates that it has reduced its power costs by $6,862 annually.
“With VMware View, we can be more responsive to our faculty, so they can support active learning and do a better job engaging students.”
