Customer Background

One of our strategic customers in airport started to explore the use of virtualization for enhancing their IT infrastructure in 2008. The customer has more than hundred of applications running in multiple platforms like HPUX, HP Tru64 UNIX, Windows, Linux, Solaris and AIX.

In mid 2009, the customer had decided to go for VMware as the corporate virtualization infrastructure platform.
