SoftCom: Cloud Hosting Provider Saves $156,000 in First Year with Operating System Upgrade

When SoftCom wanted to reduce the operational costs of its virtual private server business, it turned to the Windows Server 2012 operating system with Hyper-V. With the ease of deployment and simplified management of the Hyper-V environment, IT staff reduced administration labor by 40 hours per cluster. Windows Server 2012 is an agile and dynamic virtualization solution that data center staff use to provision virtual machines 25 percent more quickly than before and migrate virtual machines within a cluster seven times faster - with no downtime. IT staff also increased virtual machine density by more than 50 percent and reduced the data center footprint by 36 percent.
