ETH Zurich, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, is the largest science and technology university in Switzerland, with more than 12,000 students and 350 professors. The Institute of Microbiology at ETH Zurich wanted a more flexible, streamlined deployment process for client software. They installed Windows Server 2008 to take advantage of Windows Deployment Services. Now they can deploy a standard customized image to computers from multiple hardware vendors. The institute also plans to reduce server hardware by 50 percent with Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V virtualization technology.
