VMware Infrastructure has eliminated unplanned application downtime, strengthens resiliency for United Bancorp

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- VMware, Inc. (NYSE:VMW), the global leader in virtualization solutions from the desktop to the datacenter, today announced that United Bancorp, Inc. (UBMI.OB) has standardized on VMware Infrastructure 3, the industry-leading datacenter virtualization and management suite, as the foundation for a virtualized IT environment that delivers greater application availability to better serve customers.

United is a financial holding company with 275 employees. Its two subsidiaries are community banks that provide personal and business banking services. The company adopted a virtualization-first policy as part of its strategy to improve customer service and operational efficiency, reduce IT expenses, and strengthen application and system resiliency. United is currently running its core banking and trust applications, business-critical database systems, and Internet banking site on VMware virtualization infrastructure.

When we looked at virtualization solutions, nobody came close to matching VMware’s reliability, manageability, tool set, and support,” said Arell Chapman, Assistant Vice President for Network Administration at United Bancorp.
