IBM WebSphere Application Server Deployment on VMware: a Technical Case Study at Ohio Mutual Insurance Group
Jul 15, 2010
This document describes the deployment of IBM WebSphere Application Server on VMware ESX at the Ohio Mutual Insurance Group (OMIG). This deployment has been in place for more than two years and it serves the needs of 200 users within the larger company and 2400 outside users among its affiliates outside the company. Response times for the applications on the virtualized systems are better than those previously seen in the purely physical implementation. The company has also seen significant overall cost reduction and improvement in its failover and disaster recovery implementation as a result of virtualization on the VMware platform.
