Abril Group, one of the biggest and most influential communication groups in Latin America, wanted to reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and improve productivity by implementing leading-edge servers, applications and technologies. HP quickly developed an innovative road map to radically optimize Abril Group's IT environment and cut costs. HP proposed implementing a single, cost-effective system platform and virtualizing servers to simplify and standardize the complex IT environment. HP also implemented leading-edge VMware technologies to help consolidate 250 physical servers down to just 14, freeing up valuable data center space and improving agility and efficiency. As a result of the end-to-end transformation project, Abril Group significantly reduced power consumption.
