  • Virtualization technology is the foundation of our success, today and for the future.
    VMware pioneered the market for x86 server virtualization, forever changing the landscape of both desktop and server computing.
    Virtualization addresses IT’s most pressing challenge: the infrastructure sprawl that compels IT departments to channel most of their budgets into maintenance, leaving scant resources for business-building innovation.
    Because X86 computers are designed to run just one operating system and application at a time, even small data centers have to deploy many servers, each operating at just 5% to 15% of capacity—highly inefficient by any standard.
    Virtualization software solves the problem by abstracting compute resources from the hardware on which they run, pooling them together, and automating their management.
    Today the vast majority of workloads run on virtualized infrastructure.
    VMware has continued to lead the virtualization market. VMware is the clear industry leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for virtualization vendors*, and accounts for over 80% of all virtualized workloads in the world.
    VMware’s virtualization infrastructure platform is battle-tested. VMware provides the only virtualization platform proven to deliver maximum uptime in the most demanding, in-production enterprise environments.
    IT is facing a new set of challenges posed by the shifting technology landscape…

    11. 11. “The cloud has already delivered approximate savings of Rs 50 crore on a conservative basis, and has given us the ability to accelerate projects of national importance” - Rajesh Aggarwal, IT Secretary, Maharashtra
    12. 12. Chargeback model – a first in the government “We want to make the cloud self-sustainable” “Some departments are being served dummy bills so that they know how much is actually provisioned and consumed by them in the SDC. We are encouraging departments to host their applications on our SDC” “The rate card has acted as a counterforce for containing costs and has also contributed in stabilizing and putting an upper cap for prices of standard services”
    13. 13. Sample Chargeback Report
    14. 14. Everything as a service “Many senior government executives now carry iPads, and we want to encourage them to start experimenting with data by providing them with an interface to analyze using what-if-scenarios.” “We have a vision that all departments, commissionerates and organizations within Maharashtra should be able to use business intelligence reports and dashboards to perform analysis to get meaningful and actionable information”
