Reducing Cost and Enhancing Security with Microsoft Virtualization

Microsoft Corp. announced today that Lionbridge Technologies Inc., a $461 million (U.S.) translation, development and testing services company, was able to save more than $200,000 last year, enhance security and accelerate the use of customer services by deploying Microsoft virtualization and infrastructure software


Lionbridge uses Microsoft’s server and presentation virtualization software, and systems management tools for centralized control of both physical and virtual assets, and directory and remote desktop computing services for more secure access to internal data and resources. Lionbridge created and deployed Virtual Cloud Lab, a globally accessible datacenter that is shared by engineers in any of the company’s sites, as well as by the company’s independent network of 25,000 partners who are located in more than 100 countries. The virtualized infrastructure and centralized management enables all workers to access vital internal resources, and the 100 percent virtual footprint has completely removed all physical hardware requirements from branch office sites.
