Maryland Government Agency Case Study: Growing Beyond the Limits

Cover

A Maryland government agency couldn't grow within its data center, which had reached capacity with 58 physical servers that were underutilized. The agency implemented a new model for data center efficiency with a Dell server and storage virtualization solution that enabled users' ever-growing needs. The solution includes Dell™ PowerEdge™ servers and Dell/EMC SAN storage with VMware® and Dell PowerVault™ tape libraries.

Benefits:

  • Increased server utilization from 3-5% to 45-50%
  • Nearly 70% reduction in weekly backup window (from 36 hours to 11)
  • Server recovery in 15 minutes to 2 hours vs. 8 hours previously
  • Virtualized 38 servers on 6 physical servers reclaiming 80U in rack space
  • Estimated $70,000 annual cost avoidance for server lifecycle replacement
  • And more
