Oxford University is one of the oldest universities in the world. Their Computing Service (OUCS) needed to administer a secure database-as-a-service (DBaaS) solution to manage and share research data. VMware’s Hybrid Cloud has enabled OUCS to build a DBaaS that is shared by Oxford Colleges and other research universities. Hybrid Cloud was the only solution able to overcome security restrictions on datasets which require on-premise location. Increased data protection and improved service levels have enhanced their reputation in research excellence and now proven in production, DBaaS will now be offered as a service to all major UK research universities.
“Access to information is critical to maintain our position as the world’s top university and we needed a flexible, scalable infrastructure. After doing our own research, we decided a Hybrid Cloud as best suited to our requirements. The vCloud datacentre service combined with Colt’s pedigree in information delivery, was the natural choice for us.”
Servier Hungária Kft.
Az üzleti igények gyorsabb és rugalmasabb kiszolgálása, a szerverkörnyezet költséghatékonyabb működtetése, a hardver- és szoftverberuházási költségek csökkentése érdekében a Servier Hungária IT-menedzsere 2009-ben szervervirtualizációs és -konszolidációs projekt megvalósítását javasolta, amelyet a cég vezetői, az elérhető előnyöket értékelve, jóváhagytak.A VMware alapú virtualizált szerverkörnyezetben a Servier Hungária IT-csapata összehasonlíthatatlanul jobban gazdálkodhat az erőforrásokkal, dinamikusan és rugalmasan oszthatja el a terhelést, és a karbantartást is elvégezheti munkaidőben, a szolgáltatások szüneteltetése nélkül.
“Our VMware based virtual server environment is not just more flexible and cost-effective, but also a lot more reliable and stable than an infrastructure built on dedicated servers. For users who are not familiar with the concept of virtualization, this may sound like a contradition at first, but practice has clearly delivered proof of its viability.”
Hungarian National Bank (Magyar Nemzeti Bank)
Az MNB szervervirtualizációs projektje a VMware ESX Server 3.5-ös verziójával indult, de a platform legújabb, 4.0-s verzióra történő frissítése a HP-val kötött support szerződésnek is része. A virtualizált szerverek felügyeletére a jegybank a VMware vCenter megoldását vezette be. Az MNB a hardvererőforrások átlagosan 70 százalékos kihasználását tűzte ki célul, ami a projekt eredményeként a gyakorlatban megvalósult. A jegybank a VMware virtualizációs megoldásával ötödére csökkentette a szervergépek számát, amivel arányosan csökkent a kiszolgálók hely- és a hűtésigénye is. A magasabb rendelkezésreállású hardverkiszolgálók és az egységesen felügyelhető virtuális szerverek az üzemeltetés és karbantartás hatékonyságát is hasonló mértékben növelték, így az ezzel összefüggő költségek is csökkentek. Ezzel az MNB a VMware alapú virtualizációs projekt valamennyi sikerkritériumát eredménnyel teljesítette.
“Due to the extra importance of the national bank’s role, a virtualisation solution already well-proven in the market and providing high standards of support and having adequate references in Hungary could be considered only. VMware’s virtualisation technology met these strict requirements.”
