KocSistem: Hosting Provider Expects to Save $9.4 Million With Move to Windows Server 2012, Hyper-V
Kocsistem, a Turkish provider of cloud hosting and other IT services and solutions, came to question the cost and performance of the software it used for virtualization. To do better, Kocsistem migrated to a virtualization solution based on Windows Server 2012 with Hyper-V, and Microsoft System Center 2012. The company expects to gain virtual machine density that is three times that of its previous environment. As a result, it will run more virtual machines on fewer physical hosts. The increased density will reduce capital costs by an estimated US$9.4 million. Furthermore, streamlined and automated management will increase IT productivity by an estimated 25 percent, reducing operating expenses.
