Phoenix Software

 

Phoenix Software increases sales whilst delivering cost savings to the public sector with VMware vSOM

Phoenix Software, a VMware Premier Partner, is working with public sector organisations to gain operational insight into the health of their virtual environment with VMware Operations Management. By providing this insight, hundreds of organisations are upgrading from VMware vSphere to vSphere with Operations Management, while opening up further sales opportunities for Phoenix Software. At the same time, VMware’s management tool is enabling public sector organisations to achieve more with their IT infrastructure at a lower cost, ultimately improving the efficiency of front line services.

“VMware vSphere with Operations Management has been an absolutely crucial part of our public sector offering, enabling us to deliver significant cost savings to local councils, NHS Trusts and higher education establishments, as well as a number of private sector businesses. At the same time, the outstanding results of vSOM have opened up fantastic sales leads, not only in terms of upgrades from pure vSphere to vSphere with Operations Management, but also for other solutions which span across the wider infrastructure including desktop and applications.”

Phoenix Software delivers SaaS service run on VMware vCloud Air

Phoenix Software is a UK Solution Provider partner which owns a traditional software company, an ISV, called License Dashboard. License Dashboard wants to deliver a SaaS service and as the software already runs on VMware the easiest way forward is to deliver this software from vCloud Air. A further advantage is that License Dashboard will be able to deliver SaaS services around the world by using vCloud Air’s datacenters across the globe.

Queens University of Charlotte

 

Queens University of Charlotte and VMware vCloud Air

What began as a small college for women in 1857 has evolved into a co-ed, comprehensive, master's-level university with a commitment to liberal arts and professional studies. Today, Queens University of Charlotte in North Carolina serves approximately 2,700 undergraduate and graduate students through its six accredited schools: the College of Arts and Sciences, the McColl School of Business, the Blair College of Health (including the Presbyterian School of Nursing), the Cato School of Education, the Knight School of Communication and the Hayworth School of Graduate & Continuing Studies.

With a mission to provide a transformative educational experience and a global perspective, Queens University of Charlotte needs a platform that allows students to log in from anywhere, at any time to support its global learning and understanding initiatives—and that’s where VMware comes in.

VMware used vCloud Air to move the University’s production servers, without interruption to the domain controller for access management, ensuring Microsoft was continuously available for teachers and students to access emails. VMware vCloud Air was also used to host the University’s main website as well as a resource DNS server to be available 24/7 to alumni, prospective students, and donors.

Using vCloud Air Disaster Recovery, the University was able to host some of the apps they weren’t ready to move to the cloud like a CRM for recruiting students, fundraising servers, and other ERP systems.

“Queens University of Charlotte is growing and changing significantly with new programs and with new methods of teaching and delivering our mission to serve rather than to be served. And we require partners’ who can help us in that mission and VMWare has been one of those partners.”

— Brian Baute, Chief Information Officer (CIO), Queens University of Charlotte

Rent-A-Center

 

VMware vRealize Suite Transforming IT as Rent-A-Center

Learn how Rent-A-Center, a leader in the rent-to-own space in North America, uses the vRealize Suite and automation and hybrid cloud management capabilities to empower and speed infrastructure delivery to modernize their IT infrastructure and point of sale software delivery.

“Before we had these tools (vRealize Suite and NSX), it took literally dozens of people a week to get a store deployed. Just because of all the back-end changes that had to occur. With the new tools, we’re able to deploy a hundred stores a day with minimal staff.

In addition to the time savings, with the use of the infrastructure tools that come with the vCloud Suite, we have an 85% (improvement) in infrastructure utilization, in time to deploy, in disk space utilization… it’s just been a tremendous savings in every dimension.”

— Michael Conroy, Senior Infrastructure Architect, Rent-A-Center

Cloud Computing at SAIC

Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), based in McLean, Virginia, provides information technology, system integration, and e-business solutions worldwide. These solutions include big data and analytics, cloud computing, cybersecurity, IT managed services, networks and communications, and software and mobility services. SAIC’s primary customer is the United States government, but its 13,000 employees also deliver systems engineering and integration offerings to large-scale government and commercial projects across the globe.

What is unique about SAIC is their dedication to delivering quality mission-oriented technical services and solutions and to contributing to the security of our nation and the well-being of our local communities. They not only believe high ethical standards are essential to achieving individual and corporate goals but they can also apply their core values to all their interactions with their customers, fellow employees, suppliers and subcontractors, neighbors, and stockholders.

vCloud Air represents an opportunity to create synergies between existing vSphere deployments and the investments SAIC has already made in operational procedures. For the company, the solution is familiar, less expensive and faster to deploy than other cloud service provider options—all of which leads to increased availability of services for SAIC clients and higher customer satisfaction.

The addition of VMware vCloud Government Services provided by Carpathia makes it easier to address security concerns while offering hybrid cloud services to public sector clients. SAIC sees vCloud Government Services as being almost the perfect platform for delivering enterprise IT that includes cloud but also recognizes that there’s a much broader set of services that have to be delivered in the IT portfolio.

"At SAIC, we use vCloud Air because we already have a large investment in vSphere technology. It was very straight forward for us to migrate our IT Services from our existing virtualization environment into a vCloud Air Platform. Additionally, we have a large base of trained personnel on VMWare Management technologies making it very easy for us to integrate our technology with VMWare's Cloud Service Provider offerings known as vCloud Air."

"SAIC sees vCloud Government Services as being a very viable Cloud Services Platforms for the entire US Government. It's one of the reasons we are heavily investing in becoming very technically proficient and building solutions on top of it. The Federal App Accredited Cloud Provider environment that VMWare offers provides a migration path for vSphere users today which is a large portion of our customer base that makes it straight forward to integrate with existing management solutions and to migrate workloads back and forth between that Fed App Accredited Community Cloud and their existing private side Cloud environment."

Secure-24

 

Secure-24 Lowers Costs, Speeds Deployment, and Gains Flexibility by Virtualizing SAP HANA with VMware vSphere Solution

As a certified SAP partner, managed cloud services provider Secure-24 has hosted systems using the SAP HANA in-memory database since it was released in 2010. Yet unlike the majority of the applications Secure-24 hosts, SAP HANA was only available as a dedicated physical appliance—until recently, when SAP opened the door to virtualizing SAP HANA via the VMware vSphere® platform. Today, Secure-24 offers a more flexible SAP HANA service at a significantly reduced cost utilizing vSphere virtualization. Founded in 2001 in Southfield, Michigan, Secure-24 provides managed hosting and private cloud services to medium and large global enterprises. With a focus on application hosting, Secure-24 relies on more than 500 employees and a network of Tier IV and Tier IV+ data centers to deliver highly secure and highly available services that scale to meet clients’ evolving business and budget requirements.

“There’s a clear and growing desire in the marketplace to be able to take advantage of the power of SAP HANA without a huge capital outlay. VMware allows us to fulfill that desire by offering a virtualized solution.”

— Len Landale, Vice President of ERP and Application Hosting, Secure-24
