Smith Flow Control
Smith Flow Control, part of Halma, the U.K.-based hazard detection and life protection products group, needed an easy-to-manage IT infrastructure to replace its disparate systems. It chose Windows Server 2008 R2 with Hyper-V over VMware virtualisation technology. Now, instead of eight physical servers, the company uses a three-node Hyper-V cluster with five virtual machines. This has increased productivity, reliability, and disaster recovery options.
