LB Hillingdon's Virtualisation Savings

Surprisingly few contract details or success stories seem to come across my desk (more please) and I've only just come across this one about the success of the London Borough of Hillingdon's virtualisation programme.

It seems that Hillingdon has embraced VMWare's virtualisation technology as part of an infrastructure upgrade, replacing 20% of its estate (40+ servers). The swap-out was done earlier this year and the London Borough is reporting a 70% reduction in power consumption both directly and through reduced cooling requirements.
