NX Systems

 

NX Systems discusses its journey with VMware so far and the SDDC solutions it has deployed to help improve the scalability, continuity and flexibility of its payments platform

“vSAN is helping us to achieve the scalability that we always wanted to achieve. First we looked at the software-designed, and then we looked at the hardware design and the virtualization, and the three of them are coming nicely together to actually give the business what it wants.” “We offer our own financial services, but are also offering our own platform-as-a-service. So having vSAN looking at NSX and getting the automation portal together is helping us to bring up [our platform] in different locations, so even when customers out of the blue tell us they want our platform in a PCI environment, we use all the bits and pieces coming from the product to actually give them an environment that is fully controlled and still monitored by us.”

— Jonathan Bowman, CTO, NX Systems

VMware empowers King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology’s Internet Services Unit to provide reliable, secure, high performance quality cloud services.

Designer Pages

 

Designer Pages and VMware vCloud Air

Designer Pages was conceived in 2007 with a crude napkin sketch and a lofty vision to reshape the way the architecture and design industries do business. They build tools that help designers find great products and connect with the manufacturers that make them. Designer Pages is located in New York City, which is the largest design market in the world and it’s the hub of all architects and designers. Being located in New York has made it easier for customers to access their solutions.

Having seen the problem with large firms in New York City that were struggling enormously with information management, specifically around products being selected for buildings, Designer Pages decided to deliver for these design firms by providing a product selection and specification platform that would serve as knowledge portal for firms so that every single product selection was accessible indefinitely.

Designer Pages is currently using VMware vCloud Air to host their main company’s website – customer facing as well as other app servers such as load balancer and SQL.

"We wanted to focus on building something that would be valuable for our customers. We did not want to focus our time dealing with technical infrastructure that we knew we would be able to scale ourselves. We decided to move our software to VMware because we knew it would ultimately make us a better business."

— Jacob Slevin, CEO/Co – Founder, Designer Pages

Telefonica Spain

 

Telefónica discusses how vCloud Air Network has enabled its Cloud Services targeted at large enterprise to provide customers with the flexibility and control to scale up their applications in the public or private cloud, depending on their needs, and use of its disaster recovery capabilities

“With our virtual data centre, we have moved all the functionality we used to provide as a hosting provider to the cloud. What previously used to be complex projects can now be self-provisioned by the customer. With an active-passive environment, you can have an automated and predictable Disaster Recovery with refined point objectives of ten minutes, and recovery times of less than an hour.”

“As VMware has such a strong presence in customer data centres, for us it was very clear that having a service based in VMware [technology] would give customers a lot of confidence when moving their applications to the cloud.”

— Antonio Oriol, Global CMO, Cloud Services, Telefónica

Kongsberg Kommune

 

The Municipality of Kongsberg experienced that the working platforms for students and employees were inefficient and poorly secured, and that time consuming systems prevented a seamless use of necessary digital tools.

Administration of digital projects and exams were also much easier, and the employees got access to desktops, networks and applications on mobile devices outside the office, without the IT department sacrificing security or control.

«We chose VMware View and VMware Horizon because these systems were a good fit for our needs and were built for the future»

Columbia’s technology solutions are on the bleeding edge to stay ahead of where the business is going—not react to it. Its global business transformation leveraging VMware’s Cloud Management Platform is successfully influencing the way Columbia does business.

Tribune Media

 

Business Transformation at Tribune Media

Tribune Media has over 42 owned or operated TV Stations, WGN Cable, Gracenote for Entertainment Metadata and Tribune Movie Studios, and is one of the nation’s largest independent broadcasters. VMware has really helped Tribune Media stop the conversations around technology, focusing instead on the outcomes it needs to operate the business. Now they can concentrate on increasing security capabilities, decreasing costs and responding to customer needs faster. Tribune Media can grow the business and go after new markets, and that translates into more revenue per customer.

“VMware has been really critical to drive the fluidity back to the business. My head of engineering has literally a saying over his door. It says, ‘If we can’t automate it we don’t need it’. If we deploy an application in our infrastructure to automate processes, we give that time back. What ends up showing up to the business is our ability to do more projects and do them faster, cheaper and better.”

— David Giambruno, SVP and CIO, Tribune Media
