Microsoft and NetApp today announced that A & A Contract Customs Brokers Ltd., a fast-growing customs and freight broker, has achieved dramatic IT efficiency gains by using Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V and Microsoft System Center with NetApp storage solutions.
As A & A’s business continues to grow, so does its information technology environment and the need for more storage and servers. The acquisition of more servers and storage has led to increased IT costs and server and storage sprawl in the company’s data center. As a result, A & A needed to transform its IT infrastructure to meet its planned growth and business objectives. To solve the problem, the company consolidated its server and storage infrastructure based on an end-to-end virtualization solution with Microsoft Corp. and NetApp.
