The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDRC), one of the largest correctional agencies in the nation, has the daunting task of maintaining an extensive Information Technology environment and infrastructure. The main challenge they face is that they needed to scale its IT infrastructure to meet growing demands and increasing complexity. VMware provided them with virtualization which allows the department to meet increasing demands on its IT resources in a more streamlined, efficient and cost-effective manner. This resulted in implementing new servers which takes a day, instead of weeks or months, change control is improved and disaster recovery capabilities improved.
