With Rolta AdvizeX acting as an extension of your IT team, you achieve more than implementing and deploying new technology; you gain a strategic partner who can manage the complexity associated with the new technology. You don’t have to have an expert on your bench, Rolta AdvizeX’s technology experts are there to fill this crucial role.

For over 8 years, Rolta AdvizeX has been working with this Major League Baseball Organization to help them support the technological advancements that are changing the business of baseball. Whether it’s engaging with fans and customers via social media, managing security threats, competing for talent, or using data to increase ticket and food sales, all of it depends on a strong information technology backbone.

When this Major League Baseball Organization’s Chief Information Officer was trying to decide how he could best expand upon the previous VMware investments, Rolta AdvizeX immediately stepped up to the plate. In order to automate IT and improve performance and availability with virtualization, they were interested in upgrading from vSphere® to vCloud Suite™, while also adding application-centric security with NSX®.

Rolta AdvizeX, in its role as advisers to the organization, developed a fully architected plan for the vCloud Suite and NSX rollout, including the necessary consulting services, to present to the organization’s senior management. The solution was presented with several different options. Rolta AdvizeX’s research revealed a 45% savings in total cost of ownership when purchasing the VMware ELA.  The substantial savings and thorough vCloud Suite and NSX rollout plan convinced senior management, and the VMware ELA was purchased. In early 2018, the project was still being rolled out in phases.

Substantial changes to the infrastructure of the organization must be done in the off-season. They are planning to rollout the vCloud Suite and NSX solutions in the next few months. Virtualization makes it easy to do the work from a central location that will be rolled out in data centers in various sites around the globe. They are running 46 Virtual Machines on 8 physical machines. The VMware technologies have been deployed seamlessly with the Dell EMC products already in use by the organization, such as ISILON®, scale-out storage platform and XtremIO®, all-flash storage arrays.

Rolta AdvizeX’s corporate philosophy encourages their employees to build strong, long-lasting relationships with their customers. They also have great employee retention, so often these relationships are with the same individuals over the course of the partnership. This Major League Baseball Organization appreciates that fact as they have an all hands-on deck team philosophy themselves. When the scoreboard suddenly goes black during a game, the CIO or one of his team is there to troubleshoot immediately.

We have the depth of knowledge to help our customers design, build, and deploy solutions from VMware and make these solutions work seamlessly with products from other vendors as well. As a recipient of VMware’s Global Partner Innovation Award in the Partner Professional Services category, Rolta AdvizeX is qualified to add value to any VMware deployment.
