Kroll Factual Data of Loveland, Colorado, is a longtime provider of
information services to the mortgage industry. The firm wanted to
optimize its server infrastructure to better meet spikes in demand and
reduce data center costs. Kroll Factual Data virtualized its data center
using Windows Server® 2008 and Hyper-V™ technology, consolidating
650 servers to 22. It further streamlined its infrastructure using
Microsoft® System Center data center solutions to monitor and manage
its physical and virtual landscape, and Microsoft Visual Studio®
development tools to quickly develop applications.
With its new optimized infrastructure, the company can grow faster,
scale quickly to meet customer needs and dramatically reduce IT costs.
Kroll Factual Data has cut annual hardware expenditures by tens of
thousands of dollars, and energy costs by U.S. $442,554 annually.
