Executive Summary

Food ingredients company Danisco found that running and cooling 250 servers at its main data centre was a drain on power and costs. The IT team wanted a simplified infrastructure that would be less expensive and greener to run, as well as scalable for future needs. On the advice of Dell's consultants, the IT team chose to replace the 250 servers with 10 Dell PowerEdge servers, virtualized with VMware and supported by a Dell/EMC Storage Area Network (SAN). The company is now well on the way to saving two thirds on power and shrinking its CO? footprint significantly.
