Harley-Davidson wanted to introduce new services to meet business requirements and ensure Service-Level Agreements (SLAs) with retail partners are met, while minimizing the maintenance load on a busy IT staff. Harley-Davidson virtualized using Dell EqualLogic Storage Area Networks (SANs) and Dell PowerEdge blade servers running Microsoft Hyper-V virtualization software. As a result this reduced maintenance and administration increases time available for business service enhancement.
