S&T Austria replaces server landscape

Based in Austria in the state of Kärnten, KABEG manages regional hospitals and, with around 6,300 employees, is Kärnten’s biggest employer. KABEG is responsible for the administration, control and dynamic development of Klagenfurt, Villach, Wolfsberg, Laas regional hospitals and the Gailtal Clinic.

The challenge

KABEG planned to transfer everything from their existing servers to the new C-class system, to be up-to-date for the next few years. The new system will also take up less space, reduce the air-conditioning as well as power costs. Five years ago S&T Austria installed already all the current servers of KABEG. Therefore they decided once again for S&T.

The project

59 servers (57 in Klagenfurt, two in Wolfsberg) will be installed by S&T Austria in the first phase. Then comes roll-out of the VM-ware using HP’s Rapid Deployment tool, migrating and consolidating strategic platforms such as Exchange, SQL, Citrix, File and Print Services, SMS etc to the new hardware. The new System Center Configuration Manager 2007 (formerly SMS V4) will be installed for PC deployment and the installation roadmap. This will form the strategic platform for all devices, for rolling out software and/or patches in a structured manner and for maintaining current status.

Furthermore S&T Austria will take over hardware maintenance and maintenance of the Microsoft platforms for the next five years.
