Challenge
CAASP’s IT infrastructure lagged in performance, processing and storage capacity due to servers and software with obsolete technology and without scalability. Systems were difficult to maintain and had poor availability.
Solution
CAASP virtualized 21 physical servers utilizing four Dell™ PowerEdge™ R710 hosts with Intel® Xeon® processors and VMware® vSphere™ 4 virtualization software. CAASP opted for Dell centralized storage and Dell PowerVault™ TL2000 tape library for backup.
