Solution: AIG Technologies is a supplier of information technology solutions. What AIG needed to accomplish was to improve their customer support and response time by increasing datacenter space for growing projects.

 

AIG sought the help of VMWare in order to implement a solution that could meet their customer support and response needs. VMWare’s EXS Server allowed many virtual servers to reside on one physical server. It was determined that the workloads of 37 existing servers could be moved to an equal number of virtual machines that resided on only three physical servers, each running VMWare EXS Server.

 

The virtual machines were running on three 4 CPU Dell PowerEdge 6650 Servers with a fourth server as a back-up. Since this solution has been implemented, AIG Technologies has received multiple benefits. The company decreased its hardware costs by reducing the number physical servers by a 20:1 ratio. The company has also achieved a 8:1 rack space reduction which provided the scalability to accommodate additional projects without increasing the size of the data center. A substantial increase in server utilization has enabled AIG to use resources more efficiently, plus virtualization has also reduced server provisioning time by 50 percent allowing AIG to be more responsive to customer needs.
