ALAN, based in Yaroslavl, Russia, delivers a range of IT services, including document management, infrastructure consolidation, and data protection systems. Continued growth at the company resulted in a number of business challenges. Expenditure on hardware was increasing because the company had to buy more servers. In addition, managing and powering the server estate became more expensive and time consuming and the datacentre was running out of space. ALAN wanted to extend the use of virtual servers to reverse the trend. After evaluating a number of solutions, ALAN deployed Hyper-V technology as part of the 64-bit version of Windows Server 2008 Enterprise.
