Metrics / Lessons Learned


Cost


Single shared pool of networking, storage, and compute resources.


Explosive adoption, over 3,100 employees have used the solution since launch. Average
over 1,600 active users every month
.


Over 145,000
virtual machines deployed since launch.


Over 20,000 virtual machines under management


Unified Library of over 600 Software Defined Data Centers (
vApps
)


Reduced administration


While fewer admins are needed, they need to be cross functional and understand the
latest virtualization
trends.


Choosing
the right vendors who understand cloud is critical.


Reduced integration costs


Cloud integration is complex, use as many integrated solutions as you can which are
proven to work together. Symantec is seeing the savings in the ability to leverage
integrations across the cloud.

SYMANTEC VISION

Metrics / Lessons Learned


Agility


Software Defined Data Centers available in minutes instead of weeks or months


Average Provisioning Time: 17 Minutes, completely changes the way employees work.


Abstraction of hardware at all layers allows flexibility and reduced downtime.


Multiple hardware transitions since inception, zero user impact.


Orchestration is a must


F
aster turn around when implementing new solutions


Our
entire cloud topology is actually stored in an
SDDC vApp
inside of the cloud, allowing for on the fly
testing of new
solutions even with the cloud itself.


Reduce provisioning effort allowing employees to refocus
their actual jobs
-

helping
customers
.


Saved
over
280,000 man weeks
of
effort


Removing the burden of managing labs from engineers and trainers.


Transitioned to Cloud Operations


Helps to break down barriers between departments and reduces
silos


Over 600 shared labs covering most Symantec product lines currently available


Support Services, Training, and Engineering are finally able to share… everything.

SYMANTEC VISION

Metrics / Lessons Learned


Governance


Secured within the Symantec Firewall / Private Enterprise Cloud


Complete oversight into the datacenter topologies allow for improved
control.


Auditing of topologies to reduce human error.


Ensure proper security is in place prior to allowing deployment.
