Banque de Luxembourg
Banque de Luxembourg is one of that country's leading private banks, serving private investors across the continent. To uphold its tradition of innovation and demonstrate its commitment to environmental responsibility, the bank decided to consolidate its data centers through virtualization technology. Using Windows Server 2008 Datacenter with Hyper-V technology and Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager, the bank implemented 50 virtual machines in a high-availability configuration running on 7 physical servers. Now, it is expediting the deployment of new hardware and software, delivering line-of-business applications to users one week faster than before, boosting application availability, and simplifying data-center management. It also will reduce the need for computer hardware, power and cooling, and office space, for a more cost-effective, environmentally sound operation.
