Solution: Accountants Inc. is a 350 person firm that provides companies with temporary or permanent financial talent, as needed. The challenge that Accountants Inc., were facing was that the company needed to move beyond the limitations of the single-server to single-application model they had been using.

 

With the help of premium partner Entisys Solutions and VMWare, they implemented a solution that standardized using VMWare and having a strict virtualization-first policy that enabled Accountants Inc., to spend less time managing IT infrastructure and more time focusing on growing their business.

 

Using this solution allowed Accountants Inc., to consolidate 50 physical servers in to just 10 VMWare ESX Servers. The company was able to reduce their server count by 80-percent, and they were also able to decrease server deployment time to just minutes. The company can now increase availability of key business applications such as business continuity and disaster recovery to help meet goals in those areas.
