Comic Relief wanted to provide a quickly scalable infrastructure reliable enough to be entrusted to process nearly 25% of the organization's annual income within a 7-hour window. As a solution Comic Relief virtualized servers using VMware on the HP BladeSystem. As a result there was 60% reduction in rack space required (6 racks vs. 15) and 94% reduction in server deployment time (5 - 15 minutes instead of 4 - 6 hours).
