Product/Service: VMware Cloud Foundation
For its large enterprise customers, CenturyLink wanted to reduce time and cost spent on architecting, lifecycle management and interoperability testing. CenturyLink used to test on their own – but now with VMware Cloud Foundation, they can deploy more quickly. With an integrated, pre-validated stack that combines storage, compute and networking, Cloud Foundation frees time and resources that CenturyLink can use to build and sell more value-added services such as disaster recovery and specialized networking solutions.
“VMware Cloud Foundation allows CenturyLink the flexibility to meet a much broader suite of solutions and opportunities for our customers.” – Steven Nolen, Senior Product Manager, CenturyLink
Located in Minnesota, Nol-Tec Systems is a specialist engineering business for bulk materials handling and environmental solutions worldwide. Saddled with aging infrastructure needing expensive hardware, storage upgrades, and having a small IT department looking for ways to reduce complexity, patch times, and improve security and lifecycle management, finding a new solution was imperative.
Deploying VMware Cloud Foundation and VMware Workspace ONE addressed their immediate needs and provided the foundation for growth. Nol-Tec has found tremendous value leveraging its partnerships with Dell, VMware and CDW plus VMware Professional Services.
“When trying to figure out what to do with our aging infrastructure, the VMware solutions looked like they fit our business challenges—vSphere, NSX, vSAN for storage, and then having vRealize Insight to have visibility into our environment. Cloud Foundation brought all of those products together and actually was the right solution for our company.” – Dustin Plank, Manager of Information Technology, Nol-Tec Systems.
