State and local government agencies have a mandate to support their constituents with the best solutions possible. But modern technologies can be expensive, out of reach of limited government budgets. Yet traditional, hardware-centric infrastructure comes with a high price of its own, requiring time-consuming management, and putting performance at risk.

VMware vSAN allows you to do more with less, with a “build as you go” model that allows you to leverage prior investments and evolve to the cloud at your own pace. With vSAN, you can take the next step toward a modern, hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) while using tools and solutions you’re already familiar with. Improve ROI, strengthen security, and streamline management so you can better serve the people who depend on you.

vSAN State and Local Government Customers

City of North Las Vegas

“Virtualization has been so important in enabling us to get out from behind our desks and into the community, yet still securely access information when we need it. We can access floor plans from our devices in the field and quickly strategize about how to attack a fire, saving more property and lives.” 


Joseph Calhoun, North Las Vegas Fire Chief 

Berliner Stadtreinigung

“We placed our trust with regard to desktop virtualization in vSAN, because it runs trouble-free, is cost-effective and has a high performance at the same time. That’s why we want to find out if we could virtualize our servers based on this solution as well.”


– Ronald Scheer, Organisational and Information Technology, Client-Server Operation
