It needed to utilise high processing power and virtualization for energy efficient, adaptive and mission critical, hosted environments such as Business Intelligence (BI), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and e-business services for medium-sized companies. Business & Decision is a leading French international consulting and data management company that specialises in hosting services for business intelligence, customer relationship management and e-business applications. In the face of rising energy prices, wider concerns about energy efficiency and due to a growing demand for specialised hosting services, it decided to expand its data centers facilities in Grenoble, France, by developing a new 'Green' data centre.
