Whirlpool Corporation depends on proven technologies to keep innovation and output high and operating costs low. With a goal to lead the industry in connected home appliances, Whirlpool is empowering its engineering teams to design faster and smarter. The company is modernizing their data center with VMware vSAN for simple, streamlined virtual storage and vCloud Air Dedicated Cloud to combine the security of private cloud with the cost efficiency of public cloud.
Whirlpool constantly incorporates consumer feedback into product development. The Internet of Things (IoT) has taken customer engagement to new levels - the company must meet changing demands for more complex, connected appliances. A scalable platform based on vCloud Air Dedicated Cloud helps engineering teams worldwide design faster and smarter.
Quicker development cycles help Whirlpool respond faster to the market and accelerate development. Fast, reliable data storage across teams and geographies helps design and manufacturing teams lead the industry. VMware vSAN is part of a suite of VMware products that has helped Whirlpool free data center space, increase database performance and achieve six-figure CapEx savings for new development and test systems.
“It’s a real advantage for Whirlpool Corporation that VMware leads this market. There’s no other public cloud provider that offers this type of bi-directional workload portability—and it’s completely transparent to my end users.”
