VMware Helps China's National Bureau of Statistics Integrate Its Datacenter and Streamline Management
As a government body directly under the supervision of the State Council, the NBS is responsible for national statistics and accounting for China's economy. NBS needed to consolidate applications running on numerous servers to enhance utilization while also reducing management complexity and managers' workload. NBS needed to deploy applications which did not demand significant IT resources on the virtual machines in order to achieve more flexible and convenient management. In order to promote uniform statistical applications, the NBS deployed virtualization on two HP DL580G5 systems equipped with quad-core INTEL XEON processors and installed six applications.
