The Melrose community had a vision to offer other cities and towns IT services via a private cloud. Melrose began looking into different solutions to optimize its data center, but one of the main issues that they needed to address was the amount of power consumption. Melrose is designated as a green community in Massachusetts, so it receives grants as long as it stays within certain metrics on power consumption. This requirement meant that Melrose needed to find a solution that was both cost-effective and sustainable, but would not affect their green community status.

This is where a private cloud comes in. The Melrose community wanted a system that could be expanded later, but was not sure how many servers, how much memory, or how much storage it would need in the future. This flexibility and expanded memory FlexPod was a selling point for the city. Melrose has been able to consolidate the infrastructure of all the City’s schools into a single data center and has the space of 100 servers in one rack. Additionally, the costs that have been cut with the new system can now be redirected to other resources.
