Yahoo Japan Corporation Improves Security and Enhances Performance with Nutanix
Mar 5 15
Nutanix announced that Yahoo Japan Corporation has deployed the Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform for desktop virtualization to mitigate the impact of malware infections and provide a consistent IT framework for staff working across the business drastically increasing business efficiency, productivity and security. Working in a domain registration environment that can be prone to cyber-attacks, security is a huge priority for Yahoo Japan Corporation. The company sought to deploy virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) from Nutanix to increase operational performance, support with the reviewing of applications from companies registering their domains with Yahoo Japan Corporation and to provide a more efficient backbone for the organization's IT infrastructure when periodically patrolling registered sites to check for infections and ensure a more positive experience for Yahoo Japan Corporation visitors.
Sligro Food Group Selects Nutanix to Migrate and Expand its Existing Legacy Desktop and Datacenter Infrastructure into the New Era of Web-Scale IT
Jan 29 15
Nutanix has announced that Sligro Food Group has chosen Nutanix to migrate and expand its existing legacy desktop and datacenter infrastructure into the new era of web-scale IT. Sligro took the decision to invest in a major IT upgrade program to replace its ageing network of desktop computers and associated server based applications. With around 1,200 users distributed across two datacenters, it made sense to standardize on a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) approach, reducing the management, support and capital investment expense associated with traditional desktop deployments. Furthermore, the realization that the new infrastructure would need to handle other workloads beyond the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, coupled with a lack of in-house skills needed to support traditional Storage Area Network (SAN) solutions, convinced Sligro that Nutanix's Web-scale solution would be an ideal option for the migration project. Sligro has since gone on to install Nutanix appliances across both of its national datacentres, migrating not only its desktop user base to the new VDI infrastructure, but in addition other critical line of business applications running on VMWare, including the replacement of 42 conventional server hosts and a traditional IBM storage network. The company will also virtualize its Microsoft Exchange and SQL to complete what has since grown into a comprehensive and very successful datacentre migration project.
