Vblock Desktop Virtualized Solution

  1. 1. The World’s Most Advanced Converged InfrastructureVBLOCK™ DESKTOP VIRTUALIZATION SOLUTIONVCE is the leading innovator of intelligent converged infrastructure systems. By unifying best-in-class technologies from Cisco, EMCand VMware, we optimize applications and accelerate the adoption of cloud computing. VCE provides secure and predictableperformance through pre-engineered, modular infrastructure that enables standardized processes and operations. This enablesfaster development and deployment of applications, improved utilization and lower operational costs.Business, Operational and Financial Challenges§ Speed to deliver new programs and services§ SLAs and high availability for mission critical applications§ Management and operation complexity§ Vendor management§ Environmental and facilities costsVblock™ SystemsVCE designs and delivers Vblock™ Systems, which seamlessly integrate leading compute, network, storage, and virtualizationtechnologies. Vblock Systems provide the highest levels of virtualization and application performance and are unique in their ability tobe managed as a single entity with a common interface that provides customer choice.The Vblock Desktop Virtualization platform is a purpose-built solution running on a Vblock System that helps IT organizations toautomate desktop and application management by enabling rapid deployment, reducing costs and improving security throughcentralization of the desktop environment.VCE Customer Value§ Optimized Infrastructure: pre-engineered, pre-validated and pretested o Standard models provide a predictable environment to manage and operate enterprise-class data centers o Integrated patch release management offloads IT staff Columbia Sportswear said, “The integration of compute, network, and storage into a single stack is transforming the way we, as IT professionals, view these environments. We anticipate a significant reduction in the overhead required to manage the Vblock platform environment, because we’ve taken three separate disciplines and combined them into one.”§ Secure Environment: hardened security o Drawing upon the resources of RSA, Cisco, EMC and VMware Claremont College said, “The other colleges have a comfort level in having CMC host the computing environment for the Joint Science Department, because we have an enterprise data center architecture that is robust, resilient, and versatile.”© 2012 VCE Company, LLC.

  2. 2. § Speed to Deployment: pre-configured logical and physical builds* o Reduced calendar time to deployment from 5 weeks to 1 week o Reduced staff time to configure, test and deploy by 75% o Simplified provisioning improves IT responsiveness A Fortune 100 financial services firm was able to reduce deployment risk and eliminate the time and cost of testing across different environments because of the standard nature of Vblock Systems. Rapid deployment of Vblock Systems saved the company more than $10 million per month in idle and underutilized personnel costs, and avoided the time and cost uncertainty of a services engagement.§ Lower Costs: simplified IT infrastructure costs* o Significantly improved application uptime and system availability o Higher utilization of resources, reduced storage costs 60%, network hardware 63%; servers 41%, power 25%; facilities 33% o Dramatically reduced server incidents o Reduced end-user productivity losses over $9,000 per 100 users per year Molina Healthcare, a Fortune 500 company saw improved total cost of ownership due to minimized requirements for implementation, administration and support resources; a 4:1 reduction in data center footprint, and decreased power and cooling usage.§ Promote Innovation: IT staff spending less time managing infrastructure and vendors* o Increased IT staff productivity over $10,000 per 100 end-users per year One large North American bank looked to Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) to improve security and streamline IT processes. They rolled out a VDI solution based on the Vblock Desktop Virtualization Solution to 500 users in three weeks, months ahead of their competition. The VDI solution supports a diverse environment of desktop terminals, laptops, and tablet computers and can scale to 5,000 virtual desktops. Now, proprietary data that had been stored on laptops is stored in a central location where IT easily ensures data protection best practices.*IDC White Paper, April 2012, Case Studies of 5 VCE customers© 2012 VCE Company, LLC.
