Virtualization Technology Adopted for ASP/BPO Service Platform Using SAP Completion of SAP Upgrade Project Involving Large-Scale Server Integration and Virtualization Brought Forward by Half a Year
Human Resource Management Service & Consulting Co., Ltd. (HRMSC), a supplier of ASP (application service provider) and BPO (business process outsourcing) services for large corporations using an SAP platform, was facing an increasing system administration burden due to operating approximately 140 servers, each of which was fine-tuned to particular customer requirements. The company took the opportunity presented by an SAP upgrade to schedule replacement of aging hardware and shift to a virtualized environment based on VMware Infrastructure 3. The 140 servers were consolidated onto six physical machines to establish a service platform with excellent power and flexibility. In doing so, HRMSC accomplished a significant improvement that lead to the creation of new business value.
