IT services firm Appserv provides hosted IT environments and applications to approximately 2,500 people in 70 New Zealand - based businesses. With a dynamic customer base that requires it to continually update applications and deploy new ones, Appserv found it challenging to deliver applications quickly and efficiently. By using Microsoft Application Virtualization for Terminal Services, Appserv eliminated time-consuming compatibility testing, deployed applications up to 75 percent faster, and enhanced its business continuity efforts. The company also reduced the number of server computers, rack space, and electricity needed to run applications - enabling it to keep costs low and price its services competitively.
