Columbia Sportswear is a family-owned business with thousands of employees and operations spread around the globe. Their challenges are to insufficient resources for managing a growing virtualized IT environment, no business continuity or disaster recovery plans for remote branch offices and limited capacity in space constrained data centers. To increase data center capacity and promote workload mobility, Columbia Sportswear implemented a hybrid cloud with VMware vCloud Air. The results of implementing VMware were increased agility by allowing workloads to be shifted between public and private clouds, it enabled a business continuity option for remote locations with limited resources and freed up IT staff by migrating lower-tier applications to VMware-managed public cloud.
