Acer: Computer Manufacturer Reduces Data Center Costs by $600,000 a Year With Upgrade
As one of the world's largest manufacturers of computer equipment, Acer knows a thing or two about data center efficiency. That's why it is upgrading to the Windows Server 2012 Datacenter operating system to take advantage of improvements in virtualization density, network virtualization, cluster updating, and more. By standardizing on the Hyper-V technology in Windows Server 2012, Acer expects to reduce costs in its Taiwan data center by US$600,000 a year - and quintuple those savings when it deploys the operating system to all global data centers. Acer has been able to triple virtualization density and make its IT staff more efficient through increased automation. It can now virtualize more broadly and respond faster to business needs.
