SEGA Europe

When deciding upon our cloud strategy we felt it was crucial to use an environment we were familiar with end-to-end. We were already very happy and comfortable with VMware technology, and because of its standardized cloud approach and the close integration with COLT which has such a wide data center footprint globally, we had the perfect fit.

We looked at all the add-on features and saw that, hands down, VMware offers the most complete and robust set of offerings—including VMware vCloud Networking and Security, since security is so important to us.

Brandon Nelson, Team Leader and Systems Engineer, Acxiom


We considered other server virtualization platforms during our exploratory process, but security is a big concern for us and we felt that the secure foundation on which VMware’s ESXi platform is built upon, the ease of deployment and management, plus the number of applications per host density, VMware offers made them the obvious choice. VMware is the brand that large and medium-size companies—in serious need of reliable virtual systems—choose. Beyond that, VMware solutions present remarkable benefits and are proven to be easy to integrate with most existing IT platforms.

Myron F. Steves and Company

It took us a month to get it [Microsoft Hyper-V] working...Within two days [of trying VMware vSphere] it was fully functional… Ten years ago, we had around 13 IT people on staff. Today we have six, and we're supporting the same number of employees.

Tim Moudry, Associate Director of IT, Myron F. Steves and Company

JSR Group

VMware came top of our evaluation in terms of cost effectiveness and we were very impressed with the tools and features available with vSphere. Other solutions, such as Microsoft Hyper V, were overly complex and unsuitable for a business of our size.

Richard Hanson, Group IT Manager, JSR

Bartholomew County

With VMware technology, we’re not limited to any one physical server, location or desktop. Resources are more flexible, resilient and better able to support reliable, high-quality service to county citizens…We felt VMware was the market leader. We’d looked at Hyper-V and other vendor solutions, but they were never serious contenders.
