Finecom Telecommunications, a Swiss full service provider for Internet, telephony, and digital TV, wanted to speed up the management of individual information TV channels for cable operators. It replaced dedicated physical servers with "swissV" from netrics hosting, which uses Hyper-V virtualization technology. A new TV information channel now takes less than 30 minutes to deliver on a self-service basis, instead of up to two weeks.
