VMware Cloud Infrastructure Enables Digital Transformation
Every year, approximately 27,000 children are diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions. Headquartered in Phoenix, AZ, Make-A-Wish is the world’s leading children’s wish-granting organization, serving children in every community in the United States and in 50 countries worldwide. Granting the wish of every eligible child with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with strength, joy and hope is the mission at Make-A-Wish. By embracing VMware’s cloud strategy, technology is helping move Make-A-Wish ever closer to making this dream become a reality.
What we are trying to do is reduce the timeframe from the time a wish originated, bringing in all the players within the ecosystem, compress the time frames, so that we can provide more wishes to more kids.
The Christie Safeguards Life-Saving Care for Cancer Patients
When a cancer patient comes to The Christie, the exceptional care they receive relies in part on the technology infrastructure underpinning critical services. For a decade, The Christie has worked with VMware to help safeguard that care through comprehensive server, network and desktop virtualization. By deploying a highly secure, resilient and efficient virtualized infrastructure, the hospital has embraced healthcare’s digital future and transformed a small IT team’s ability to do more with less. Clinicians and staff have more time to spend with patients, confident that the services and information they need are always available, well-protected and quick to access, wherever they are working.
“Thanks to VMware NSX, we were recently able to keep patient services fully operational during a high-profile cyber-attack. As the largest single site cancer centre in Europe dealing with more than 40,000 patients each year, we take the security of our infrastructure very seriously. Protecting patient care is our top priority, and VMware solutions are helping us deliver that outcome.”
Powering the future of cloud and data centers with VMware solutions
Leading semiconductor company MediaTek partnered with VMware to build a dedicated IaaS self-service portal powered by VMware vRealize. The company now has control over performance of the entire environment, and can easily monitor usage status to optimize the use of resources. MediaTek also embarked on virtualization projects with VMware for data centers’ server, storage and networking to optimize costs and improve its operational efficiency.
“Our virtualization projects with VMware for data centers’ server, storage, and networking have adopted multiple advanced technologies and structures… This optimized the cost and use of advanced technologies improving the operational efficiency of the data centers. We believe that there are more opportunities for collaboration in the future operations of cloud and data centers.”
