Boston Medical Center Case Study: Implementing Data Center Virtualization to Cut Costs and Consolidate Hardware

Cover

Boston Medical Center (BMC) needed to find ways to lower its operational costs to work within smaller budgets despite exploding data volumes, a sprawling server farm and 6,000 desktop users who needed access to clinical applications for patient care. The hospital pursued a data center virtualization strategy to simplify and consolidate storage, servers and desktops into an easy-to-manage, centralized solution that helps drive down operating costs. BMC used Dell™ PowerEdge™ servers with Intel® Xeon® processors, Dell EqualLogic™ storage and VMware.

Benefits:

  • $3.2 million saved in equipment avoidance costs
  • $150,000 savings annually from 50% cut in power bill for data center
  • Reduced licensing costs for desktops with desktop virtualization solution
  • Improved security with desktop virtualization
  • And more
