ENSULMECI, an international engineering, procurement, and construction company, had a decision to make about its IT assets. Its infrastructure servers were reaching the end of their lifespan. The Portuguese firm conducted a business case for two scenarios: either maintain its existing physical equipment and replace obsolete components; or adopt new virtual infrastructure. As a result of the evaluation to measure its hardware utilization levels, the company decided to implement a virtualization platform. The solution advocated by Capgemini consisted of a platform implementation for datacenter virtualization, consolidating all of ENSULMECI's servers, and allowing different levels of response for each specific type of service offered.
