Herning municipality in Denmark implements cloud solutions for automated server rollout and enhanced network security with technology delivered and supported by Proact.

Proact has delivered a new cloud solution for automated server rollout and enhanced network safety to the municipality of Herning in Denmark. Herning’s IT department serves 4,500 users in administration and 16,000 users in the schools’ network.

The municipality of Herning is a pioneer when it comes to IT, and has been using virtualization technology in its data centre for more than a decade. The IT department’s mission is to increase the use of digital services based on a highly flexible and automated infrastructure.

The new solution enables further efficiencies, eliminating manual processes and time-consuming administrative tasks. The essential tool for achieving this is the VMware vRealize solution implemented by Proact, which automates the process of ordering and deploying new virtual servers and applications.

“The municipality has a highly skilled IT staff, but we had neither the time nor the experience to implement these completely new software components on our own,” says Mikael Korsgaard, Server Manager at the municipality of Herning. “Fortunately, we found the resources and expertise we needed. Proact has brought innovation and counseling at the highest level into our partnership.”

Through a self-service portal, new servers can now be specified and ordered directly by authorised users and administrators, for instance in the schools’ administration or the City library, and have them up and running within 15 minutes. This reduces the workload on IT staff and makes users independent of opening hours and resources from the IT department.

Additionally, the municipality of Herning has implemented a new virtualised networking solution which reinforces security through microsegmentation. This means that the network can automatically react in the event of a security breach and shut down communication to a compromised server.
