  14. 15. Case Study III: Environment Overview <ul><li>Customer has 12 branch office locations </li></ul><ul><li>Currently each site receives a standardized host configuration consisting of 8 physical servers </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>AD, DNS, DHCP, Doc Management, File Server, Backup, SQL, Exchange, etc…. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Customers key concern is collapsing the physical infrastructure at these sites without sacrificing QoS </li></ul>
