Transcript of a BriefingsDirect podcast exploring how high-performance motorcycle maker Ducati has harnessed virtualization to aid in computer-aided design and production.
Dana Gardner: Hi, this is Dana Gardner, Principal Analyst at Interarbor Solutions, and you’re listening to BriefingsDirect.
Today, we present a sponsored podcast discussion on how high-performance motorcycle designer and manufacturer Ducati Motor Holding has greatly expanded its use of virtualization and is speeding toward increased private cloud architectures.
With a server virtualization rate approaching 100 percent, Ducati has embraced virtualization rapidly in just the past few years, with resulting benefits of application flexibility and reduced capital costs. Ducati has embraced private cloud models now across both its racing and street bike businesses. [Disclosure: VMware is a sponsor of BriefingsDirect podcasts.]
