City of Avondale

 

City of Avondale Establishes Business Continuity and Protection for Critical Services with vCloud Air Disaster Recovery and vSphere

After implementing a hybrid cloud solution based on vSphere, the city of Avondale determined that it was positioned to take a major leap with its backup and disaster strategy. The city had local backup services for fast recovery. However, it had aims for a regionally separate disaster recovery site in case of a major catastrophic event in the Phoenix Metropolitan area. City staff saw emerging as-a-service options as a means to allow Avondale to achieve its business resumption goals at a level of cost and ease unavailable in the past.

“We reached our goal of 70 percent virtualization in just over a year within a year of using vSphere. VMware continuously advances its technology and provides options that allow us to build onto its solutions. As a CIO, that's critical when looking at strategic investments.”

— Rob Lloyd, CIO, City of Avondale

Cloud Based Disaster Recovery is Changing how VMware Customers do Business

Have you ever wondered how a comprehensive disaster recovery strategy could be implemented in the cloud? What applications can you protect in the cloud? Can you simplify your environment at a lower cost? What are the core benefits achieved as a result of implementing disaster recovery in the cloud, verses an on-premises solution? On March 25th, 2015 8.00 am PST, we hosted a Google+ Hangout event featuring VMware experts and our customers as they provide a technical deep-dive into the VMware vCloud Air Disaster Recovery service. They shared some of the challenges they faced as well as best practices for solutions to those challenges and ways the service has helped their various businesses.

“The cost difference between doing it yourself versus hosting it on VMware was really something that was attractive to us. And it only took us about six months from the day I joined The Hut Group to the day that we were able to stand up and test a fully functioning website. We never failed a production but we were able to replicate the full production databases out of the full production website and to do that within 6 months makes me feel very good but it also gave the executives comfort that they knew that we now had a solution which would be useful and known when we came to have a disaster.”

— Schalk vd Merwe, IT Director, The Hut Group

Synergent

 

Synergent Taps VMware NSX for Micro- Segmentation and IT Automation in the Software-Defined Data Center

Synergent created a cloud-based multi-tenant environment built on VMware vCloud Suite Advanced and deploy VMware NSX to virtualize its network.

“Given our work in the financial sector, security is very important to us, and the ability to do micro-segmentation was critical to our selection of VMware NSX,” says Jackson. “We explored doing this at the hardware level, but quickly realized it was not feasible. The proven success of the NSX platform, and the integration of other industry leaders such as Arista Networks and Palo Alto Networks, helped solidify our decision.”

— Trever Jackson, Enterprise Infrastructure Architect, Synergent

California Natural Resources Agency

 

California Natural Resources Agency Gains Agility Across Multiple Agencies Through a Software-Defined Data Center Strategy

A Briefings Direct podcast on how a large state agency is harnessing virtualization to do more with less and remain agile and efficient.

“We consider VMware a strategic partner. We basically only want to work with business partners. We don’t want to work with vendors, because we don’t need someone to sell us something and walk away. VMware has been hand-in-hand with us for this whole journey.”

“From looking at VMware, virtualization is the standard. If you don’t take it on, then you really won’t be able to respond to business needs. When the official IT organization becomes obsolete, there are going to be ad-hoc IT organizations and those would become the norm. If you want to be relevant, you have to use every tool set that you can to provide the business needs.”

— Michael Hom, Data Center Chief in the IT InfrastructureServices Branch for the California Department of Water Resources

VIF International Education & VMware

 

User traffic on VIF International Education's Learning Center, an online professional development platform for K–12 educators, grew by more than 500 percent in one year, but its on-premises IT infrastructure couldn’t keep up. This mission-critical service was running on a single server blade without power or network redundancy, leading to unacceptably high downtime. By moving to the VMware vCloud® Air™ platform, VIF gained vastly higher availability and near-unlimited scalability, improved resource utilization by 300 percent, and reduced its IT systems management workload.

VIF International Education builds global education programs that prepare teachers and students for success in an interconnected world. Based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, the firm supports teachers, schools, and school districts with programs for professional development and curriculum, language acquisition, and cultural exchange. VIF is proud to be a B Corp, certified to meet specific standards for social and environmental performance. VIF is dedicated to developing globally competent citizens with the skills to thrive in an increasingly global marketplace.

“VMware vCloud Air represents for us the opportunity to deliver on our mission to deliver global education for all.”

— David Young, CEO, VIF International Education

To improve security, efficiencies, scalability and lower costs, IlliniCloud (Bloomington School District) turned to a VMware-powered Software-Defined Data Center underpinned by VMware NSX – the network virtualization and security platform.

“We estimate that each educational institution that joins our cloud can potentially cut its annual IT spending by 30 to 50 percent, freeing up money for other important educational needs while getting tighter security and data protection.”

— Jason Radford, Head of Cloud Operations, IlliniCloud/Bloomington School District

Columbia Sportswear

 

Columbia Sportswear Gets Extreme on Software-Defined Data Center Strategy

A Briefings Direct podcast on how a major sportswear company has leveraged virtualization and hybrid cloud to reap substantial business benefits.

“With our business changing and growing as quickly as it is, and with us doing business and selling directly to consumers in over a hundred countries around the world, our data centers have to be adaptable. Our data and our applications have to be secure and available, no matter where we are in the world, whether you're on network or off-premises. The SDDC has been a game-changer for us. It’s allowed to take those technologies, host them where we need them, and with whatever cost configuration makes sense, whether it’s in the cloud or on-premises, and deliver the solutions that our business needs”

— Tim Melvin, Director of Global Technology Infrastructure, Columbia Sportswear

“One of the unique things about vCloud Air is their willingness to setup SLAs or guaranteed ability of that system for the ones that are running in the vCloud Air environment. That’s critical to us. It’s hugely critical to our customers. Many of them will walk away from cloud options around that issue alone.”

— Ed Horst, Vice President of Business Development, Perforce

“What we find is that the world is moving towards the cloud. Everybody knows that.”

“vCloud Air is unique in that it offers a virtual datacenter that can split across being on-premises and also in the cloud. And for us that is a critical factor because the way we manage our data requires some of it to be local and some of it to be centrally managed.”

— Chris Seiwald, President and Founder, Perforce Software

— Ryan Fay, Chief Information Officer, ACI Specialty Benefits

VIF International Education

 

VIF International Education runs its Global Learning Platform Three Times Faster with VMware vCloud Air

VIF International Education, headquartered in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, provides an exchange program for international educators who want to teach in the United States, and offers educational programs and resources to develop global citizens.

When usage for its Learning Center platform grew from 1,500 to more than 8,000 users in one year, the platform experienced outages and bandwidth issues that impacted the user experience. By migrating to vCloud Air, the platform has 99.999 percent availability, providing a consistent experience for teachers, while using only one-third of the compute resources as the on-premises facilities.

“Using VMware as our platform gives us the opportunity to only be limited by what we think we can do. We know the platform is going to work regardless, so it's one less step we have to worry about when planning for a big project. We know it'll do what it is that we need it to do; we're only limited by our imagination as far as what ideas we have to make global education happen.”

— Mark Haney, Senior Systems Engineer, VIF International Education
