MicroStrategy delivers enterprise software platforms for Business Intelligence (BI), mobile intelligence, and social intelligence applications to some of the largest companies around the world. MicroStrategy needed a high-performance, flexible infrastructure to properly support its business and its customers. This involved a change to the way MicroStrategy works internally, and a change in how it delivers analytics to its customers. MicroStrategy used VMware vCloud Director to implement a flexible infrastructure for private and public clouds that improve operational efficiency, keep pace with the growth of the business, and enable new, more competitive product and service offerings. The results of deploying VMware provided more responsive support to their customers and lowered the costs of storing, powering and maintaining physical servers.
