SOGECLAIR Aerospace is a major aerospace engineering company with a global footprint, operating in a highly regulated industry. The company’s IT infrastructure has scaled to support international projects, comply with strict safety, reliability, and security requirements, and meet increasing demands for compute power. To boost responsiveness and security, the company built on its existing VMware vSphere footprint and created a private cloud with EMC VPLEX for business continuity, while deploying VMware Horizon View and VCE Vblock for added flexibility and agility.
SOGECLAIR Aerospace has offices in several European countries, Tunisia, Canada and the United States, as well as off-shore operations in India and Turkey. Virtualization allows employees to instantly access the resources they need to work on international projects with colleagues around the world. With a mixed roll out of VMware Horizon View and VCE Vblock, an employee can use one virtualized workstation instead of many to work on several projects for different customers, improving responsiveness and collaboration, and making the most of existing IT assets.
With VMware vSphere and a new private cloud built on EMC VPLEX, SOGECLAIR Aerospace has a solid foundation for business continuity. Combined with enhanced data protection—particularly for projects involving teams from multiple countries—the company has reduced its security risks. In an industry where safety is paramount, both on the ground and in the air, SOGECLAIR Aerospace is using its VMware-based environment to continue to meet the industry’s stringent regulations.
