Case Study Overview

Derby City Council's public cloud migration ran into financial and technical difficulties due to unsuitable legacy workloads and applications.

CDW, in partnership with Nutanix, repatriated workloads to a new on-premise data centre, creating a hybrid infrastructure environment which better served the council's financial and operational needs.

Data centre costs have been reduced by 75% and the performance of applications is up by 40%.

"Migrating workloads back to on-premise is less common and more complex, requiring development of custom migration tools. This is something we couldn’t have done without the help of an expert partner like CDW."
