We use vRealize for automation, orchestration, and lifecycle management. Those are the three main components of version 8. The solution is deployed on premises at the local data center. I'm deploying it for licensing companies. So I have a contract with the customer before this is deployed within the customer environment.
Automation and obviously the commercial aspects of the product are our primary use cases. Traditionally, we were mostly using an on-premise infrastructure, but in the last few years, we have done more with hybrid deployments. So we are generally traditional on-premise deployments but combined with cloud technology. Our model has significantly changed in the last few years as per the needs of the market and advancements in technology.
We are a solution integrator and this is one of the products that we implement for our customers. This product is used by cloud providers to help manage their private and hybrid clouds. It is essentially a metering solution for VMware.
We primarily use the solution for our internal cloud or private cloud as well as for the external clouds. I also use it at home for my private cloud.
We are service cloud providers. Our company has approximately 150 employees, and in our cloud, we manage approximately 6,000 users.
Our primary use case is to build a free communication environment for our customers and to validate the services of all organizations connected to the customer in different locations. Each location has its own IT, IT staff and IT infrastructure and we go to each of these to set up for them. The first step is implementing native ERS, IS, IAAS services, followed by PAAF or a similar solution. I'm a solution architect and project manager and we're a customer of vRealize.
We have the complete VMware suite, including vRealize. We are using this solution as a chargeback tool for billing the respective business groups and project teams for our VM solutions. Our interaction with clients begins with planning. We meet with the client to discuss project requirements, expectations, and use cases. We collate the information and use this to recommend how much compute, storage, and neutral bandwidth they will need. Once we have those numbers in hand, we can easily size and bill the customers based on what was discussed. For example, a customer may want 100TB of storage with 2TB of memory, and vRealize will help us to bill these resources.
The primary case use of this solution is to learn about the provisioning of the virtual machine and for asset management of our hardware. The deployment model we are using is on-premises.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
