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

Siemens Wind Power

 

Enabling remote access to 3D applications for Siemens Wind Power

Siemens Wind Power is a wind turbine manufacturer which is market leader in renewable designs through their use of complex 3D design applications. Its operation in Denmark and has a global workforce which works from a number of disparate locations, who needed access to multiple workstations at the same time. This is essential for Siemens as their employees only have access to one device as part of company policies, so they opted to use VMware Horizon 6 (with View) to provide employees with remote access to key design applications Siemens NV and Siemens Teamcenter from any location, while also keeping the data secured in Denmark.

“We started with only 30 users, and today we are 600, so it’s just grown and grown. People are actually coming to us and asking if they can also get the possibility to get access to a huge workstation from outside or even internally, to give them more possibilities that nhey didn’t have from whatever locations they were working from previously.”

— Søren Reinertsen, Team lead – Virtual Client & Application

Yorkshire and Humber Commissioning Support

 

Yorkshire and Humber Commissioning Support increases GP productivity and enhances patient care with VMware® Horizon™ 6

Yorkshire and Humber Commissioning Support (YHCS) is a key driver of innovation across GP surgeries and health centres throughout the region. YHCS wanted to provide greater flexibility for GPs and clinicians to enhance both patient and GP experience. The YHCS IT team chose VMware Horizon 6 to deliver Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and the ability for GPs to access clinical applications from any location. The solution has transformed patient experience and GPs’ work/life balance whilst reducing the cost of desktop PCs.

“VMware Horizon 6 has been transformative on many levels. Enabling our GPs to access applications from any internet connected device means they can treat patients from the comfort of their own home, with the same speed and efficiency as if they were in the surgery.”

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

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”

Ziv Medical Center

 

Ziv Medical Center in Zefat previously had various distributed systems across the hospital and they wanted to unify them using a single solution which will be easy to manage, allow them to gain a unified view of all the systems simply and easily, and, of course, will be highly resilient. That's why they chose VMware View. The VMware view solution that they implemented at the zivMedical Center consists of two resilient storage systems that work in a cluster. This system caters for around 1,000 work stations. It's an environment that works as a 'Kiosk'. Their users enjoy a new work environment, a very fast one, with excellent response times. As a user logs in, he gets exactly what he needs. It's an environment that goes everywhere with him, it's dedicated to him - and roams with him. Doctors for example, may work in several different wards. They may finish work in one ward, log out, move to the next ward, log in - and receive a new environment that is adapted to their exact needs.

"The Ziv Medical Center in Zefat was founded roughly a century ago. It serves around 150,000 residents in the upper Galilee region, among them cities such as Karmiel, Kiryat Shmona, and Hatzor. This is the northernmost hospital in Israel and it therefore also often serves the IDF. They operate 1,000 PCs, 700 printers, and 80 servers, which are mostly VMware's. The vast majority of systems in the hospital are computerized. This includes labs, ORs, X Ray facilities, external infirmaries, hospital admissions, the trauma center and more. Our IT unit employs 11 people. One needs to understand that the systems we manage are life-supporting. These systems must be constantly up and running".

— Zion Levy, Head of IT Department, Ziv Medical Center

Benefis Health System

 

Benefis Health System enables bedside medication verification and charting with VMware AlwaysOn Point of Care. Through tap and go roaming of the desktop, providers can access patient information within seconds. The result: Clinical staff now view IT as something that can help, not hinder them in their work.

"If we were to remove the system right now, I don't know how people would react. I think they would melt down, because they've become so accustomed to being able to provide that care at the bedside. Being able to spend time with the patient and chart, and then go on to the next patient without having to run back to the nurse’s station for charting.

— Dustin Ostberg, Systems Administrator, Benefis Health System
