Tel Aviv Municipality
Governing the second-largest city in Israel, the Tel Aviv Municipality relies on a complex computing environment to provide a range of services for nearly 400,000 people. With more than 400 information systems installed on 250 servers, the municipality needed a way to meet its growing needs without deploying new physical servers, a process that often created significant delays and increased costs. Tel Aviv Municipality evaluated and then deployed the Windows Server 2008 operating system with Hyper-V virtualization technology to reduce costs, improve operational flexibility, and enhance its services. By virtualizing its server infrastructure with Hyper-V, the municipality built a more reliable and flexible computing environment, while reducing infrastructure costs by almost U.S.$2.1 million.
