Dundee City Council Builds an Energy-Efficient Infrastructure With IBM

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Dundee is Scotland's fourth largest city, home to 145,000 people. A former industrial centre, Dundee has transformed itself into a UK centre for life sciences and digital media. To meet its environmental objectives, reduce operational costs and save data centre space, the IT department at Dundee City Council wanted to revolutionise its infrastructure through the use of server virtualisation and thin-client architectures. IBM helped Dundee consolidate more than 50 application servers to a pair of energy-efficient IBM System z9 Business Class mainframes with IBM System Storage DS6800 storage, and introduced thin-client devices using Windows terminal services software running on IBM BladeCenter server farms.
