Domino's Pizza, Xerox And Pedcor Count On Microsoft Hyper-V And Private Cloud

"Microsoft is my cloud platform vendor of choice because it provides the complete, integrated stack of infrastructure, application platform and development tools," said Raman Padmanabhan, senior vice president and chief information officer, Commercial Business Process Outsourcing, Xerox Commercial Solutions. "We want our developers to be able to work across multiple development projects and sites with ease. They now have the tools and infrastructure they need to accelerate the ever-shrinking write-test-debug cycle."

Building Productivity and Cost Savings

Pedcor Companies develops, builds and manages housing communities, including construction of more than 17,000 apartment units in the U.S. The company needed to improve datacenter availability and give employees in 77 remote offices better access to data and important applications, such as the Pedcor Management Application for collecting and processing rental fees. By replacing VMware infrastructure with a Microsoft private cloud, built with Windows Server and System Center, Pedcor has reduced downtime by 40 percent, saved $560,000 in IT costs and enabled reliable remote access to corporate resources.

"We can automate the management and delivery of healthy applications, which boosts the productivity of our people in the field," said Sumeeth Evans, vice president of Information Technology, Pedcor Companies. "Microsoft's technologies free my team to focus on new solutions for the business and give us a platform for the future."
