They were still using VMware 3.5, and their limited infrastructure prevented them from increasing their virtual servers—and to top it all off, there was no way to monitor system performance. Michael Lawson, IT Systems Engineer at Stanley Electric, realized it was time to upgrade, and he made the call to PC Connection.
