Executive Summary

Edipower, one of Italy's major energy providers, requires continuously reliable information systems to integrate its services, support its business processes, and generate and distribute energy 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. But as the company's IT infrastructure grew to 120 servers, it became complex and difficult to manage. Edipower wanted to cut IT management costs, reduce the number of physical servers it operated, and optimize system flexibility to best serve its business requirements. Using the Windows Server 2008 operating system with Hyper-V virtualization technology, the company consolidated its server environment and streamlined the deployment of new services. By developing its virtualized infrastructure, Edipower has lowered costs, reduced downtime, saved energy, optimized 24-hour information services, and aligned its IT processes to its business goals.
