Ideosity, a boutique technology consultancy with large global clients, needed to ensure that client data was safely backed up and could be easily recovered by a small IT team. With the VMware vSphere Data Protection Advanced solution, data is backed up and replicated to offsite locations as an added measure of protection. Best of all, backups and replication that once took 12 hours or more can now be completed in less than three hours. Faster data protection means Ideosity can do more with existing hardware and its existing IT resources, saving time, money, and effort.
“I’ve virtualized with VMware and prefer backing up with VMware. With vSphere Data Protection Advanced, backups have gotten more sophisticated. It is cost-effective and reliable— kind of set it and forget it.”

ITSAM in Sweden is an public sector organisation formed to provide IT support and services to educational establishments across 6 different municipalities. One of the main challenges they faced was having the ability to operate in such a large region. If a computer went down, they would send an engineer out to fix it, this proved to be very inefficient and costly. With unique desktops you get unique problems, so ITSAM implemented VMware View so that they could easily replicate desktops to hundreds of students. This has enabled their end users to access their desktops from any location at anytime. It has also enabled teachers to easily provide additional applications to support students that need extra tuition enabling the students to work on these from home. ITSAM have recently started a proof of concept with Horizon, to enable them to manage their applications more efficiently.
“The benefit to the end users is that they can access their own desktop from any client around the world, it does n’t matter where they are. Also the school can make sure they provide the correct applications to the right students at all times.”
