ABSTRACT:

A couple centuries ago, local weather patterns directly impacted whether families could put food on their tables.

Today, although largely impervious to the typical storm, we are increasingly fascinated with meteorological forecasts as predictive technologies improve. Capitalizing on this trend, State College, Pennsylvania-based AccuWeather, Inc. provides a bevy of localized forecasts and severe weather alert services.

As demand grew for its hourly localized forecasts, and its service became more data-intensive, AccuWeather wanted to continue to meet user expectations, while controlling costs.

This informative paper explores how this company consolidated its legacy servers onto a combination of new servers and processors supported by a next-generation SAN built for today’s VMware environments. Read on to discover how they were able to save space, power and a lot of IT staff time.
