Biestien College and International School & Stedelijk College
In this video, Martin Claassa, Biestien College Netherlands and Jos Wijiman, International School & Stedelijk College, Eindhoven outline how they have been using VMware solutions for past 5 to 6 years to consolidate hardware, making them flexible and scalable when needed.
“5 years ago when we had to decide what type of virtualization software we were going to need, we had a look at Microsoft, which was n’t mature enough and Xen from Citrix did not meet our requirements. The only product that gave us everything we needed was VMware.”
Biomni has managed to transform the speed and agility with which it can meet customers’ needs by adopting VMware vCloud Hybrid Service solution. It can now set up new environments, develop new features and improve client services more efficiently than ever before.
“To set up new test and development environments could take several days or even weeks, as it could involve purchasing, configuring and installing new hardware,” comments Angus. “We also, on occasion, had to move staff from existing projects to help with more urgent priorities, as setting up these environments could be labour-intensive. This was hugely disruptive for a small business.”
Implement VMware vSphere 4 to dynamically allocate server resources, centralize management and minimize hardware requirements.
“Deploying VMware vSphere 4 has enabled us to provide a flexible, dynamic infrastructure that can support demand from our business while reducing costs and improving the return on our server hardware investment.”
Blue Dome Ensures Customer Confidence And Satisfaction With VMware vFabric Hyperic

VMware vSphere enabled BTPN to rapidly provision new virtual machines to meet demand. Consolidating branch IT infrastructure to a virtualized datacenter platform enables the organization to centralize management. Implementing virtualization also establishes a sound foundation for BTPN’s adoption of a private cloud.
“We were confident enough in the ability of the virtualized infrastructure to run applications that are very important to the business. Implementing VMware has also provided us with a robust foundation to move to a private cloud and adopt more efficient ways of delivering IT services to the business.”
