Berryessa Union School District: With VMware View, Berryessa Boosts Desktop Usability And Access-Cost-Effectively
Berryessa Union School District serves approximately 8,100 students in the Silicon Valley around San Jose, California. They needed to improve desktop time to repair, but the cost of replacing its fleet of 700 aging machines was prohibitive. The district implemented a VMware View virtualized desktop environment on its existing physical systems. This resulted in avoiding $400,000-700,000 in hardware capitalization costs, desktop time to repair reduced from weeks to minutes and access to desktop resources doubled, from 700 systems in standalone environment to 1400 virtual machines today.
