Virtualization at Schaupp Bauplanungs Company Ltd.:

Four servers are virtualized and the backup was converted to a tape library.

First, the old Office Server (Windows SBS 2003), the firewall, the FTP server and a CAD Converter were virtualized from four physical machines to two physical machines. The virtual servers are mirrored on the two ESX servers (VMWare).

We channel the old office server to the backup server (with tape library), the monitoring server (it monitors the hardware of the other server) and to the Virtual Centre server.

The changeover took place over a weekend, so there was no loss of productivity.

Company Schaupp gained the following advantages:

  • Mirroring the Server
  • Saving Hardware
  • Reliability
  • Savings in administration
  • Performance Improvement
  • Hardware independence
  • Increased scalability of the server
  • Saving costs
