The Belgian town of Balen has over 21,000 inhabitants and employs approximately 110 civil employees. Due to rapid data growth and an ambitious virtualization plan, the municipality needed a more cost-effective and scalable storage solution.

Balen initially considered expanding their old legacy storage system, but found it would be more expensive than acquiring a new platform. They deployed the EMC VNXe for its affordability, easy management, and seamless VMware virtual integration.

Read this 2-page case study to learn more about Balen's success with the EMC VNXe, including:

  • 25% increase in operational efficiency
  • Double the number of virtual servers with room for growth
  • Simplified management and integration with VMware
... And more
