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.

“The fact that vCloud Air allows me to use the same vSphere interface to manage both our internal servers and our systems in the cloud just makes life a whole lot easier. I don’t have to learn a new system and a new interface. Even better, I don’t have to teach it to anyone else.”

— Mark Haney, Senior Systems Engineer, VIF International Education

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

The Hut Group

 

Hut Group deploys VMware vCloud Air for more scalable, flexible and secure environment

The Hut Group is the UK’s leading, multi-website online retailer with rapidly growing international operations. The company’s websites are a crucial part of the business and need to be kept up and running at all times. The Hut Group is therefore using vCloud Air to make sure it’s infrastructure is flexible and scalable – giving the IT team the ability to get more capacity during peak periods and to reduce it down during quieter periods, so that customers have the same responsiveness and experience even when the sites are at their busiest.

“(DRaaS) enables us to grow faster than we are growing currently, and really enables us to be more efficient and flexible in what we are doing. Instead of having to keep two different data centers up and running, to ensure there is an up or down, or cold or hot data center, this enables us to ensure that it is the efficiency that we gain by only having to do the exercise once.”

— Schalk Van der Merwe, IT Director, The Hut Group

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

Transact Payment System

 

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.”

TiAuto (Pty) Ltd.

 

Full visibility, improved performance and ability to further sweat IT assets

TiAuto was looking for a system that would enable it to deploy a charge back functionality across all of its seven divisions. It needed a system that would give the IT team a view of what each department was running, how much hardware they were using and in short summarize if the systems / servers it had in place were in fact healthy. After rolling out vSOM, the company had an instant view of its some 120 virtual machines and the benefits to the business were immediate as the TiAuto IT department could instantly identify which machines hadn’t been provisioned properly as well as where there was fault or capacity in its systems which could then be optimized.

“vSOM has been fantastic for the business as we can now benefit from adding more virtual machines on what we already have as we can resize our existing environment without running the risk of oversizing the storage. From a management perspective IT can now provide our executive team a visual report that shows them exactly how much hardware we use across the group. It goes as granular as defining what each hardware component is doing and in turn we can justify what we need and can qualify each infrastructural investment.”

— David van Vuuren, Group ICT Manager, TiAuto

KBC

 

A Trusted Advisor from VMware Professional Services Supports KBC

KBC needed a single point of contact to help support the careful planning of their virtualization program and to help maintain their mission-critical production systems. The Bank considers it important that there is a resource supporting the technology they purchase. They require access to Product Management and other VMware resources with someone on hand to guide them and make sure they have a voice within VMware. To meet these needs, they invested in the Technical Account Manager (TAM) Service.

“As a finance company, we want to know what we’re running in our data centers. Our VMware specialist goes deep into the VMware technologies, and we don’t want to make any compromises. When we are stuck in our design, when we have issues in test or production, when we want information on new tools or have new ideas, our TAM is our advocate, our helper and our solution provider.”

— Walter Adriaens, IT manager, KBC
