KDS provides IT services to municipalities in the German state of Lower Saxony. However, Oracle costs and management effort were going to increase dramatically when the organization wanted to run its cluster of databases in a private cloud environment. So KDS decided to switch its 400 databases to Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 software. As a result, it has reduced licensing costs by 42 percent, trimmed management costs by a third, and increased database performance by 15 percent.
