Tribune Media

 

Business Transformation at Tribune Media

Tribune Media has over 42 owned or operated TV Stations, WGN Cable, Gracenote for Entertainment Metadata and Tribune Movie Studios, and is one of the nation’s largest independent broadcasters. VMware has really helped Tribune Media stop the conversations around technology, focusing instead on the outcomes it needs to operate the business. Now they can concentrate on increasing security capabilities, decreasing costs and responding to customer needs faster. Tribune Media can grow the business and go after new markets, and that translates into more revenue per customer.

“VMware has been really critical to drive the fluidity back to the business. My head of engineering has literally a saying over his door. It says, ‘If we can’t automate it we don’t need it’. If we deploy an application in our infrastructure to automate processes, we give that time back. What ends up showing up to the business is our ability to do more projects and do them faster, cheaper and better.”

— David Giambruno, SVP and CIO, Tribune Media

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.”

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
