Real Estate Firm Trims IT Costs by 75 Percent with Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure
4-page Case Study posted: 03/07/2014

Cushman & Wakefield (C&W) is a global real estate services group whose rapid growth was being slowed by an expensive and unresponsive datacenter infrastructure. To avoid owning and managing so much overprovisioned hardware, C&W is consolidating its servers into a highly efficient private cloud environment based on Windows Server 2012 and Microsoft System Center 2012 R2. C&W worked with Microsoft partner Software Logic to design a hybrid cloud solution that includes both on-premises private cloud and off-premises public cloud resources through Windows Azure. With this strategy, C&W has reduced IT costs by 75 percent and dramatically increased business agility. The IT team can deploy servers in minutes versus weeks, which helps the business grow. Business continuity is also stronger because of the Hyper-V Replica feature in Windows Server 2012.
