Boston Medical Center was seeking 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 a manageable, centralized solution, driving down operational costs. Boston Medical Center chose Dell PowerEdge servers with Intel Xeon processors, Dell EqualLogic storage and VMWare.

Read this brief case study now to gain more detail into Boston Medical Center's quest to lower its operational costs, its reasoning behind settling on a data center virtualization option and the benefits it reaped, including:

  • Up to $150,000 per year in savings by eliminating Fibre Channel SAN port costs
  • About $3.2 million in savings in equipment avoidance costs
  • Improved security with desktop virtualization
  • And so much more!
