Explore with us how a large U.S. public-sector organization, with more than 10,000 endpoints spread across 400 low-bandwidth connectivity sites, used Mirage to meet the following challenges:
- Migrate the more than 10,000 Windows XP endpoints to Windows 7 by April 2014, when Microsoft standard support expired. The cost of extended support for Windows XP was estimated to be around $200 per endpoint, or $2,000,000 per year.
- Quickly provision 2000 endpoints in a hardware-refresh life cycle.
- Reduce IT travel costs to support the 400 sites locally, and be able to provide similar services remotely.
The recent technical white paper VMware Mirage Implementation Case Study for a Large, Public-Sector Organization is intended to help customers, IT architects, consultants, and administrators involved in the early phases of planning, designing, and deploying Mirage-based solutions. It provides an example of a successful architecture and deployment method.
