Server virtualization is the primary use case. There were a few reasons we went with VMware virtualization: * There were exponential demands from the business for servers, databases, applications, and quick availability. * Lack of data center facilities. * Time to setup, configure, and install the servers.

My company is an integrator and we provide solutions such as VMware Software Defined Data Center for our customers. Our customers use this solution to implement their own data centers using virtualization. It can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud. They deploy their network virtualization, cloud management, and then the provisioning is done automatically.

We are using all of the virtualization technology. Our primary use case is infrastructure as a service (IaaS). For some clients, we provide backup as a service. In this case, we back up their on-premises data to the cloud. We are using the cloud deployment model.

We primarily used the solution at first for business applications, then it as the port operator. We use it for the management of shipping containers, so we have a primary data center and secondary data center.

We are a system integration company and this is one of the solutions that we provide to our clients. One of our clients in the Health Care field is in the process of modernizing their data center using this solution. It will be replacing a lot of different products from different vendors that all have different levels of support. Currently, a large team is required to maintain the data center because it contains legacy technology, and the management of everything is very tough. This solution helps customers to utilize existing hardware and perform this type of migration in steps, replacing hardware devices one by one. It helps us to scale up and scale-out. We can decommission an old server and add a new one, but we don't have to decommission everything all at once. With some customization, we can utilize the existing resources. There are different deployment models, including both public cloud and private cloud.
