The Challenge An important loan-processing initiative, which would increase performance by a factor of 4, was costly, requiring over a year to realize return, and, therefore, faced business challenges. The VMware Solution Used ESX Server to deploy equivalent of 100 physical servers as virtual machines hosted on 12 physical servers, realizing return in three months. Virtualized applications included Citrix, SAP, Siebel and customer client-server applications.
      • Delivered ROI in three months
      • Rollout across 3 datacenters
      • Supported 1,400 users on virtual machines
      • Reduced time spent on server provisioning, backups and recovery by a factor of 10
