Priming the Pump: Xangati Helps Weir’s Cloud and VDI Waters to Flow

Customer Success Story

In 1871, brothers George and James Weir founded a company focused on creating novel pumping equipment, primarily aimed at steam ships being built at Glasgow’s Clyde shipyards. Today, Weir operations now encompass more than 70 countries and 14,000 employees, focusing on the mineral, oil and gas, and power industries. As a company famous for
its innovative hardware, it’s no surprise that Weir is on a never-ending search for the most effective tools available to help with its growth and success. This applies just as much deep in the field as it does in the depths of its data centers.

Over the last several years, Weir Minerals in North America worked diligently to streamline its IT operations with the power of virtualization. The group adopted VMware vSphere and vCenter for rendering its 150 servers into a cloud powerhouse, and it deployed VMware Horizon to realize the cost and management benefits of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) to 320 stations.

“We had all of the right pieces in place,” says Lowry Stiles, Infrastructure Manager for Weir Minerals out of Madison, Wisconsin. “It was a lot to handle; infrastructure issues are impossible to avoid completely, but Weir was spotting too many of them too late, so if we were going to do a virtualized cloud and VDI the right way, we had to get smarter about it.”
