Taking the Thruway to Virtualization
The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is growing as a result of the phenomenal growth of Nevada. The result was server sprawl and rising costs, facts which were noted by the network group responsible for more than 1,200 desktops and notebooks along with 108 servers at the DMV's Carson City headquarters. With the help of Dell Global Infrastructure Consulting Services, the DMV explored and implemented a virtualized infrastructure using Dell PowerEdge servers running VMware ESX Server. A Dell/EMC SAN is providing virtualized storage capacity and a second Dell/EMC SAN provides replicated disaster recovery and production capabilities at one of the DMV's Las Vegas sites.
