Executive Summary

Flintshire County Council provides municipal services to 148,000 citizens, and has a combined annual revenue/capital budget of ?287 million. With numerous physical servers running around 350 business-critical systems, Flintshire's infrastructure was large and complex to manage. A planned migration to a new file server platform threatened to add yet more physical servers, creating a potentially unsustainable burden on already overstretched IT staff resources. Working with REAL Solutions, an IBM Premier Business Partner, Flintshire consolidated 18 physical servers to logical partitions on two IBM System i 570s, then added Linux partitions to the same systems to handle the file serving workload.
