City Government Consolidates Servers and Delivers Enterprise Application Services With Sun Virtualization Technology
The City of San Antonio, Texas, provides multiple online services, including bill payment, career assistance, licensing and permits, and public safety information. The company's challenge was to reduce datacenter cost and simplify management. To streamline management, the City of San Antonio replaced approximately 115 legacy servers with 26 Sun servers. It used virtualization technology, including Solaris Containers, to consolidate servers and ensure the availability of mission-critical applications used by the City's employees and residents.
