US Government Agency
A large government agency with a sizable employee and customer base was looking for ways to simplify management and lower the total cost of ownership of its enterprise-wide IT systems. In particular, the agency wanted to reduce the time and complexity of managing remote servers and lower its hardware costs through server virtualization. The agency decided to implement Windows Server 2008 Enterprise with Terminal Services to facilitate remote server management and plans to consolidate servers using the software's advanced virtualization features. By deploying Windows Server 2008 with Terminal Services, the agency reduced the time required to manage remote servers by 10 percent. The agency also expects to cut hardware costs and simplify server administration through extended server virtualization.
