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

Keck Medical Center of USC

 

Keck Medical Center of USC Sidesteps SAN Bottleneck, Launches New Data Warehouse with VMware Virtual SAN Solution

Keck Medical Center of USC needed a new data warehouse for business and medical analytics but didn't have room for the data in its conventional SAN. Seeking an alternative to the capital expense of an adequate SAN expansion, the center's IT team launched a new system using the VMware Virtual SANTM hyperconverged infrastructure solution. Business and operational benefits include swift deployment, simpler storage management, as-needed scalability, and lower cost per I/O.

"We can use commodity servers and drives to build a storage cluster for 30 percent less than the cost of similarly performing storage in a traditional SAN solution.”

"Our data center is 90 percent virtualized, and I see Virtual SAN as a very compelling storage solution to utilize for most of our virtual machines."

— Manu Mishra, Senior Infrastructure Engineer, Keck Medical Center of USC

Kingston University

 

Kingston University to transform student learning experience with mobile working and BYOD using VMware® Horizon™ 6 and Atlantis

As part of a campaign to position itself as the university of choice for today’s increasingly tech-savvy market, Kingston University is now using VMware Horizon 6 to transform the way IT services are delivered to its students and staff members. By allowing access to course materials and graphic intensive applications remotely and from any device, Kingston University has allowed its staff and students to work and study in the way which best suits them.

Additionally, the university has been able to manage its 7,000 physical desktops from a central management console, drastically cutting the time it takes to provide software updates including major operating system upgrades (Windows XP to Windows 7), bug fixes, repairs and full system recovery. The IT team is also able to start-up and recover individual desktops in less than a quarter of the time previously taken, enabling Kingston to devote IT resources towards innovative new projects. This VDI environment is supported by Atlantis’ virtualized storage solution, ILIO to ensure optimum performance of the virtual PCs.

“Technology is absolutely essential for both attracting students and ensuring they have the best academic experience. We strongly believe that universities have to constantly evolve their entire technology offering - from infrastructure and networking, to the applications they make available and how they are accessed - if they are going to remain competitive and meet the expectations of new and prospective students. VMware Horizon 6 allows us to give students the freedom to work from any location – whether that is on campus or at home – while still being able to access their university desktop, complete with all the applications they need for their course. With VMware Horizon, I believe Kingston University offers one of the country’s most complete and compelling access to learning environments in the UK.”

— Simon Harrison, CIO, Kingston University

La Cité

 

La Cite is the largest French community college in Ontario with 5,000 students enrolled in over 90 programs. A variety of these programs require 3D graphics and computer labs, such as Civil and Mechanical Engineering, Architecture, and Interior Design. The college decided to virtualize desktops because the current workstations were aging. The price to replace those workstations was roughly the same as going to virtualization. La Cite chose Dell, NVIDIA, and VMware to deliver virtual desktops to these labs which resulted in reduced login times and more flexibility for both students and faculty.

“Virtualization helps me greatly when I’m preparing my classwork at home. I can quickly access the virtualization and see what the application looks like and prep my work around the same image that the students are using.”

— Francois Barbarie, CAD Instructor, La Cité
