VMware helps Kaweah Delta improve availability, introduce new services and reduce costs. Based in Visalia, California, Kaweah Delta Health Care District is a 581-bed comprehensive health care provider with 3,200 employees. Siemens is its primary applications vendor. Kaweah Delta began implementing VMware' solutions about two years ago, after looking for ways to control hardware, space, cooling and energy costs as it grew and moved toward a clustered server environment. Its datacenter is currently more than 70 percent virtualized, with 261 virtual servers across nine Dell PowerEdge hosts on an EMC storage area network.
