Hoster Improves Services, Reduces Costs Through Companywide Operating System Upgrades
From its headquarters in the United Kingdom, NetBenefit provides customized hosting solutions to enterprise customers throughout the United Kingdom and France. In an effort to improve the service it provides its customers and to reduce costs, NetBenefit sought a way to maintain high levels of availability with its virtual servers even during periods of maintenance. At the same time, the company also wanted to consolidate and standardize its client operating system. Teamed with Dell, NetBenefit upgraded its server operating system to the Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V technology running on Dell blade servers. It also upgraded its client operating system to Windows 7.
