Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience (NIN) offers flexibility for new initiatives and research, to get a specific environment up and running very quickly. The Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience wanted to set up a special work area for the variable student population. The institution also wanted to be able to optimize further its fallback ability in case of disaster, for an improved ability to secure research continuity. They chose VMware to overcome these challenges. They implemented VMware Desktop virtualization based on Horizon (with View) and disaster recovery based on Site Recovery Manager (SRM). The results of implementing VMware were access to complete functionality for data analysis, research and producing reports and it offers students who are working temporarily at the institution a stable and flexible workstation.
