Virtualization Initiative Optimized IT Environment, Cut Costs And Provided Green Benefits
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.
