Kroll Factual Data: Firm Adopts Advanced Virtualization Solution to Boost IT Efficiency, Cloud Readiness
Kroll Factual Data, which provides credit reports and related services to more than 25,000 customers, has a history as an early adopter and pioneer of data center virtualization technology. In 2008, the company used the Hyper-V technology in Windows Server 2008, together with Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008, to reduce its server holdings from 650 to 22. Kroll wanted to build on the massive efficiency gains from this initiative by increasing automation and introducing cloud management principles into its virtualized environment. The company chose to join an early adoption program for System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012, which combines resource optimization enhancements with innovative fabric and cloud management capabilities.
