Alameda Alliance Case Study
The Alliance was literally running out of space—both physical space in its data center and disk space. The organization struggled daily to provide enough data storage. It didn’t have the physical space, power, or cooling capacity to add new servers and server overheating was becoming a frequent issue. Kovarus proposed a significantly more cost-effective alternative to building out a new data center.
SolarCity Case Study
Nearly doubling its headcount in a mere four months, Solar City needed a solution that would save time and money while remaining scaleable and environmentally responsible.

After evaluating several potential partners, Solar City chose Kovarus to address its server needs.
Health Net Case Study
Health Net’s migration off of expiring hardware opened the opportunity for virtualization solutions in its data center. In the process, Health Net needed to capture the benefits of a virtualized data center.
Health Net sought out an experienced partner to derive optimal results from VMware’s configuration options, as well as thoroughly and rapidly train Health Net’s Information Technology Group on how to provide around-the-clock support for the new VMware product.
