Link Development: Developer Simplifies Private Cloud Management, Speeds Services by 60 Percent
LINK Development of Cairo, Egypt, had already virtualized its data center servers, but it wanted even more flexibility and speed in developing and testing customer solutions. It created a private cloud infrastructure that runs both the Hyper-V technology included in the Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system and VMware virtualization software. To simplify the management of this complex environment, LINK Development upgraded to Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 to take advantage of improvements in managing multiple hypervisors, creating private clouds, and deploying applications as services. LINK Development now manages its mixed private cloud environment from a single console. It has increased service availability and can also provision new IT resources 60 percent more quickly, which leads to faster delivery of solutions to customers.
