Royal Mail case study
Royal Mail Virtualises Server Farm to Save £1.8 million in Four Years.
The government-owned Royal Mail Group (RMG) in the United Kingdom operates the national postal service, which is facing the need to transform its IT infrastructure to meet new business challenges. The company decided to consider virtualisation of its existing Windows environment to achieve savings and improve management and monitoring of the infrastructure. Working with CSC and Microsoft Services, RMG decided to implement the virtualisation service with the Hyper-V feature of Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter and the Microsoft System Center suite of monitoring tools. The deployment, using HP hardware, has the capacity to host around 720 RMG servers, of which around 120 virtual machinesincluding production servers have been migrated so far. By virtualising its server estate, RMG expects a return on investment in 19 months and savings of 1.8 million over four years.
