Unisys is helping the Nationwide Building Society to virtualise 500 servers as part of Nationwide’s Data Centre Transformation Programme. The programme will rollout over several years and will reduce operational and energy costs, with anticipated savings of £8m.

So far Nationwide has achieved a 12-1 reduction in the number of physical servers, deceasing their carbon footprint through a reduction in power and air-conditioning usage.

Unisys worked closely with internal IT teams and external suppliers and provided consultancy services for the project, assessing, planning, executing and testing the server virtualisation.
