Server Consolidation

 

Maximizing efficiency is key to the success of your business.  For more than a decade, we have been helping our clients virtualize and consolidate their datacenters, achieving an unparalleled degree of efficiency. Virtualization brings more benefits than operational efficiency: the ability to manage, deploy, and recover complex server environments with unparalleled speed and accuracy.

If you are still largely running your IT production environment on physical servers, your need to consider introducing virtualization technology to address the challenges you are facing.  Through virtualization  and cloud architectures, the physical resources (CPU, memory, disk, network) are pooled.  You can manually or automatically configure and deploy virtual systems that are “right-sized”, i.e. with the necessary virtual resources, to run the applications, processes and workloads needed, when needed.

We can help you do much more with much fewer resources, by streamlining and virtualizing your environment, leveraging state of the art solutions from VMware, Microsoft and Red Hat.

Legacy IT environments tend to rely on a much larger number of physical resources (servers, storage, network) that are really needed to run the applications that power your business. The results are very high capital and operational costs, IT management complexity and lack of flexibility to respond quickly to changing business requirements and workloads. We have the expertise and track record to help you meet and overcome these challenges. We can monitor and measure your existing environment to provide an  virtualization readiness assessment with guidance;  we can undertake  planning,  design and implementation of a new consolidated and optimized server infrastructure leveraging our high level of skill, advanced tools and proven methodologies.

Performance Technologies server consolidation and virtualization planning, design and implementation services will  help your organization   slash the IT costs related to deploying, licensing, managing  and supporting  your existing server environment and expertly guide you through your virtualization journey.

Achieve More Control and Flexibility in the Datacenter
Slash capital and operating costs while dramatically increasing IT service delivery capabilities, without being locked into limited choices of vendor hardware, operating systems and application versions.
• Reduce hardware and operating costs by as much as 50% and energy costs by 80%, saving more than 2,000 per year for every server workload virtualized.
• Reduce the time it takes to provision new servers down to minutes Decrease downtime and improve reliability with business continuity and built-in data disaster recovery.
• Deliver IT services on-demand now and in the future, independent of hardware, OS, application or infrastructure providers.

Increase efficiency by Consolidating Hardware resources & maximizing Utilization rates
By consolidating your server hardware resources, your organization will:
• Increase hardware utilization from 5-15% to up to 80%.
• Reduce total hardware requirements by a 10:1 ratio or better.

Our Professional Services team can help you assess your IT environment to identify consolidation candidates and to calculate the potential savings from using virtualization.

Eliminate Over-Provisioning - Increase Server Utilization to as Much as 80%

Get more out your existing resources by consolidating x86 servers. The traditional “one workload, one box” approach to server provisioning inevitably leads to over-provisioning and underutilization of hardware assets. Most servers operate at only about 5-15% of their total load capacity.

The costs of delivering power, cooling, network and storage infrastructure, administrative and hardware support resources   and data center real estate to lots of underutilized servers is prohibitively high. You can eliminate these inefficiencies and unnecessary costs by converting your x86 physical machines into fully functional virtual machines.
Each virtual machine represents a complete system—with processors, memory, networking, storage and BIOS—enabling you to run Windows, Linux, Solaris and NetWare operating systems and applications on the lean virtualized hardware resource pool,  at the same time. Running multiple workloads on a few properly configured x86 servers lets you increase the utilization of your hardware assets from 10-15% to as much as 80%.

Slash Hardware & Operating Costs
With much fewer physical systems, much less money is spent on energy consumption to meet the power and cooling requirements. Cost savings are significant: approximately €500-600 per server, per year.

Simplify Management of Your Virtual Infrastructure
While virtualization reduces the amount of hardware in the data center, you’ll still need tools and solutions for managing workloads on virtual machines. We offer solutions such as VMware tools to manage and automate your entire virtual infrastructure, enabling you to:
• Manage and monitor virtual machines from a central location.
• Reduce the time it takes to provision new servers down to minutes.
• Allocate shared IT resources with greater flexibility Manage Heterogeneous Systems from a Single Point of Control.
• Maximize the Efficiency & Responsiveness of your Datacenter.
• Perform Live Migration of Virtual Machines.
• Deliver Mission-Critical Services on Demand, leveraging automated procedures.
