HP was selected by the nonprofit Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA International) to help cut the physical and carbon footprint of the organization’s infrastructure while continuing computer growth.

According to the firm, “by implementing HP solutions, AFCEA International transformed its entire data center infrastructure, which supports email, financial operations, customer websites, and internal and external portals – into a virtualized environment.
