Virtualization and Cloud Case Study: Palo Alto Medical Foundation
In 2007, the Palo Alto Medical Foundation (PAMF) had two datacenters that were out of capacity for power, cooling, and server space, with UPS systems reaching maximum capacity. Upon choosing a virtualization solution from a top developer, the PAMF team was able to work with the top developer’s professional services organization, enabling their data centers to
- Grow in capacity without growth in data center headcount
- Improve failover and disaster recovery
- Reduce scheduled maintenance time
- Stabilize power and cooling requirements
Access this paper to learn how the team addressed a complex array of problems, targeted areas for virtualization, and subsequently meet all of their objectives of their virtualization project.
