Ducati Customer Story

VMware has never failed us. We have grown in terms of demands and requirements, and VMware has grown in its capabilities and the ability to support us.

Daniel Bellini, CIO, Ducati

98% Virtualized Workloads:

Within two years, Ducati infrastructure went from zero-to-98% virtualized, all with no down time and supporting a 3x increase in production.

Private Cloud Infrastructure:

The team created a private cloud infrastructure linking workloads of Ducati’s racing business with the street bike business.

Virtual Infrastructure Supports Business:

Ducati’s IT infrastructure supports the production of 40K bikes per year, and helps them outrace competitors 2x larger.

A seamless delivery of service and intervention transparency is for us of vital importance; and with VMware we experience the same level of performance and reliability, with literally zero downtime.

Roberto Cane - Electronic System Manager, Ducati Corse

How VMware Helped Ducati

Ducati’s infrastructure needed a modern approach to keep pace with its growing legacy and expanding competition. With help from VMware, Ducati focused on streamlining its IT infrastructure and building bridges between the data from the race track to the production process, allowing its lean IT team better leverage their world-class legacy. As a result, Ducati IT is nearly 100 percent virtualized with zero downtime and helps fuel an extremely competitive business that consistently overshadows its competitors who are often twice as large.
