Designer Pages and VMware vCloud Air
Designer Pages was conceived in 2007 with a crude napkin sketch and a lofty vision to reshape the way the architecture and design industries do business. They build tools that help designers find great products and connect with the manufacturers that make them. Designer Pages is located in New York City, which is the largest design market in the world and it’s the hub of all architects and designers. Being located in New York has made it easier for customers to access their solutions.

Designer Pages is currently using VMware vCloud Air to host their main company’s website – customer facing as well as other app servers such as load balancer and SQL.

Student Loan Direct is an easy-to-use, user-friendly portal that also provides help and information functions. It enables users to create correct and properly completed documents required for the loan process. They can complete their loan applications and data update forms, view their loan agreements, balances, and repayment history, exchange messages with the Student Loan Center, and communicate using this channel instead of postal mail. The launch of the Student Loan Direct is a success story: 50 percent of all new loan applications already arrived through the portal started in September 2011. Since the virtualization of Student Loan Center, there were no unplanned server downtimes, and the server room requires less cooling and energy. The fault tolerance of the VMware-based environment, tested before implementing the Student Loan Direct portal, showed that operation continuity can be ensured if combined with regular data backups. The introduction of 7x24 service availability requires setting up a backup data center that Student Loan Center will implement using VMware’s disaster recovery solution.
"Using VMware's virtualization solution, we have set up a server environment with high-availability and load balancing to serve our Student Loan Direct portal. So our customers can rely on our services around the clock, 7 days a week."
