Two years ago, Radiator Express Warehouse (1800Radiator), a fast-growing automotive-parts distributor, began franchising. While initial growth was slow and the company had time to add infrastructure and build servers, in the last year, its business skyrocketed. 1800 Radiator had run out of rack space, was running out of data center power, had too many systems and hardware configurations to manage and lacked a true disaster recovery plan. With VMware Infrastructure 3, 1800Radiator not only enabled a new and improved DR strategy, but also dramatically cut power and hardware costs and received a $6,000 PG&E rebate check.
