Like many schools with minimal IT budgets, the IT team of a small college in Ohio found they desperately needed to replace the servers and storage hardware that had been consistently added to over the years. The complexities, costs and inefficiencies were too much - so, they turned to virtualization and consolidation initiatives to rein in the sprawled computing and storage infrastructure.
After constructing the new, more efficient platform with two leading virtualization technologies, the college reduced energy and resource consumption, saw easier administration and cut its number of servers by 87 percent.
Check out this case study to find out which two technologies this college invested in to avoid a 50K USD data center expansion cost, 42K USD annual server and storage cost and a 45K USD annual servers and cooling cost, among many other avoided costs and benefits - financial and operational. Read on to discover how this school saw an ROI of 194 percent and achieved payback within one year of investing.
