Boekel De Nerée

 

Boekel De Nerée wilde haar serveromgeving consolideren om de hoeveelheid hardware terug te dringen. Op basis van VMware vSphere heeft Boekel De Nerée inmiddels 95 procent van de alle servers gevirtualiseerd, inclusief de bedrijfskritische systemen voor SAP, document management, SharePoint en mobiele apparatuur. Met VMware heeft het bedrijf meer grip op de centrale serveromgeving die alle bedrijfsapplicaties ondersteunt.

“Een belangrijk aspect van VMware is dat we nu onafhankelijk van hardware zijn, waardoor de flexibiliteit is toegenomen. Een nieuwe server inrichten is nu een kwestie van minuten. Voorheen duurde dit aanzienlijk langer. Capaciteit is dus ‘on-the-fly’ beschikbaar. Daarmee vergroten we de slagkracht van de IT-organisatie, maar belangrijker is dat we kernactiviteiten effectiever ondersteunen tegen lagere kosten.”

— Frank Keessen, ICT manager Boekel De Nerée

Gemeente Zoetermeer

 

De gemeente Zoetermeer verving de verouderde desktops door virtuele desktops op basis van VMware View. De gemeente wilde resources on demand kunnen bijschakelen en kunnen inspelen op de snel veranderende markt. Ook dient de gemeente te voldoen aan compliancy-regels die onder meer stellen dat bepaalde activiteiten binnen twee dagen weer up-and-running moeten zijn na een calamiteit. Door over te stappen op desktopvirtualisatie kan de gemeente aan al deze eisen voldoen.

"Wij hebben een keuze gemaakt voor VMware View om een aantal belangrijke knelpunten op te lossen. Je moet hierbij denken aan verbeterde flexibiliteit. Flexibiliteit om vanaf elke werkplek in te loggen met behoud van eigen zelf samengestelde desktop beleving, plaatsonafhankelijk werken en het losknippen van de afhankelijkheden tussen hardware van de computer, besturingssystemen en de applicaties."

— Richard Thiele, ICT-projectleider, gemeente Zoetermeer

Minivegas

 

Minivegas zocht voor www.firstcarstory.com voldoende flexibele render-capaciteit om bezoekers snel een gepersonaliseerde animatievideo te laten maken. Binnen korte tijd werd een real-time online video-rendering oplossing in de cloud ontwikkeld. Deze high-performance-omgeving is gebaseerd op een fysieke infrastructuur met VMware vSphere- en vCloud-producten. De integratie en het aansturen van de vCloud-omgeving vanuit de render-infrastructuur gebeurt via prefab vApps en VMware PowerCLI en de vCloud API. De betaling per verbruik maakt gebruik van VMware Chargeback.

“Met deze VMware-technologie konden we flinke tijdwinst in het project boeken. Door de inzet van de prefab vApps hadden we snel een werkend concept dat bovendien al uitgebreid getest was. Deze infrastructuur biedt firstcarstory.com altijd de noodzakelijke real-time render-capaciteit on demand.”

— Ellen Utrecht, Executive Producer, Minivegas

We kunnen VMs én netwerken snel modelleren en het applicatielandschap razendsnel uitrollen. Dit proces kostte voorheen al snel een paar weken. We kunnen het nu in ruim 18 minuten. Dat is enorme tijdwinst.”
