Sample Client Success

ladwp_logo       Contracted by LADWP (Los Angeles Department of Water and Power) to design, implement, configure, and train IT organization on their first On-Premise Private Cloud initiative. LADWP is the largest municipal utility in the United States, serving over four million residents. LADWP can currently deliver a maximum of 7,200 megawatts of power and, in each year, 200 billion US gallons (760 million cubic meters) of water.

VVL Systems was the lead engineering supporting the local IT Services team, capturing requirements for an Infrastructure-as-a-Service capability, to aide and support LADWP internal customers and application team in gaining greater efficiency when requesting IaaS services. Previous process included manual IT Service Request management process, which took days/weeks to request common IaaS services.

VVL Systems performed requirement analysis, infrastructure preparation, installation of BMC Software’s Cloud Lifecycle Management solution, configuration of Pod and Network Container blueprints, configuration of Service Blueprints, and UX design of Cloud Portal and Service Offerings.

We also assisted LADWP in modernization of their VMWare Infrastructure to support onboarding to the On-Premise cloud, including consultation for VMWare best practices. Finally, we were a trusted advisor for the LADWP team, including CIO office, on next-generation capabilities for their ongoing datacenter modernization efforts. This includes, but not limited to, Hyper-converged solutions and computing platforms.

Please see our presentation made for this use case at BMC Engage 2016.
