Sogeclair Aerospace

 

Sogeclair Aerospace relies on VMware Horizon and VCE to guarantee flexibility and security for its transnational projects

"We opted for VCE Vblock, the joint package from Cisco, EMC and VMware, which runs VMware Horizon View (VDI) for virtualisation of workstations. This attractive package relies on a shared architecture, providing a machine that integrates hardware, software, storage and network connections, along with their associated maintenance needs. It is fully integrated, with all components mutually compatible. To start with, we virtualised 200 workstations in France. Eventually, users across 14 sites will benefi t from this technology. "

— Jacques Dejean, Information Security Manager

Peirce College

 

Peirce College Delivers Reliable Online Classes with VMware vCloud Air Solution

Peirce College is a leader in online education, and it offers nationally ranked online bachelor’s degree programs. As it expanded its online classes, Peirce needed a stronger technology infrastructure. Its previous colocation facility was expensive and prone to crashes, and its data-transfer rate was limited to 2GB an hour. When Peirce implemented VMware vCloud® Air™ Virtual Private Cloud for its data center, it increased data speed, cut costs, and achieved rock-solid reliability in the cloud.

Peirce College provides practical, career-focused education for working adults through high-quality and affordable classes. Founded in Philadelphia in 1865, Peirce was one of the first accredited colleges in the United States to offer complete online degree programs. U.S. News & World Report has repeatedly named the college’s online bachelor’s degree programs among the nation’s best.

"Moving to VMware was a no-brainer. I know VMware works and works well. Everything has been rock-solid and easy to manage."

— Michael Mozeliak, Director of IT, Peirce College

Zebra Technologies

 

Zebra Technologies Handles Massive Motorola Merger with VMware vCloud Air Solution

Zebra Technologies builds logistical solutions that identify, track, and manage critical assets, people, and transactions. The company's end-to-end solutions combine mobile computers, scanners, specialty printers, radio-frequency identification (RFID) labeling, software, and services to give physical things a digital voice and provide companies with visibility into their business. Headquartered in Lincolnshire, Illinois, Zebra operates in 81 countries and employs a workforce of more than 7,000.

When Zebra Technologies bought Motorola Solutions’ Enterprise business in 2014, it acquired 700 new applications and a massive hosting bill. By transforming its internal data center facilities to create a VMware private cloud, and by extending that environment with the VMware vCloud® Air™ service, Zebra created a hybrid private-public cloud with the scalability and flexibility to quickly migrate the Motorola workloads, retire the legacy hosting expense, and prepare for future growth.

"We have a cloud service provider who wrote the code that runs the cloud. If there's a problem with vCloud Air, VMware doesn't have to call anyone else. That made this a very simple decision."

— Kelly Jones, Consultant to the CIO, Zebra Technologies

Zebra Technologies

 

Zebra Technologies Rapidly Delivers Digital Workspaces Post Acquisition with VMware Horizon Air

Founded in 1969, Zebra Technologies Corporation started out as a leader in barcode printers and readers, providing companies with real-time manufacturing and logistics. In 2013, Zebra added to their portfolio of tracking and visibility technology with the Internet of Things (IoT) platform, Zatar. In 2014, Zebra acquired the enterprise business unit of Motorola Solutions, Inc., and now more than 7,000 employees in more than 110 offices around the world support the development and sales of Zebra software and hardware solutions. Zebra holds more than 4,200 asset management technology patents and employs more than 1,700 engineers. That commitment to innovation has landed Zebra on Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies of 2016. Today, Zebra’s primary mission is helping its global customer base, including more than 95 percent of Fortune 500 companies, harness real-world data for actionable business intelligence. Zebra Technologies needed to provide a digital workspace that would allow both existing and newly acquired employees to access the company network from anywhere. IT was exploring a hybrid-cloud approach for desktops to provide that flexibility to remote developers outside of headquarters in Lincolnshire, Illin. IT had been testing dinCloud for their Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution for about a year. However, end users complained about the product’s performance. For instance, when users moved their mouse, it dragged across the screen due to keyboard mapping issues that impacted response time.

"The performance was great, and the ease of deployment was really what sold Zebra on Horizon Air. It is incredibly easy to spin up a couple hundred desktops quickly. VDI became a huge success for us to get people onto Zebra’s network right through their basic Internet port.”

— Scott Myers, Cloud Architect, Zebra Technologies

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

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

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

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. By implementing cloud technology from VMware, the IT department experienced an administration that demanded fewer resources, and a less time consuming restoration of machines. 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»
