Server consolidation is an approach to the efficient usage of computer server resources in order to reduce the total number of servers or server locations that an organization requires.
There are three main levels of server consolidation to consider: centralized consolidation, physical consolidation or the operational consolidation also known as virtualization or application consolidation. A successful server consolidation plan should include an overall infrastructure blueprint that includes every server, PC, storage device and network element. We begin by taking an environmental profile which includes what servers, storage devices and protocols you utilize in-house, what your storage and disaster recovery needs are, and Server Consolidation Assessment results. Based on this detailed study, we will advise you, and present you with the best in-class solution.
Our approach to implementation, installation and integration is comprehensive. We work with multiple providers to deliver a server consolidation solution that fits seamlessly into your IT environment
Server consolidation – Optimize resource usage
An essential starting point for optimization is the server landscape. Operation, administration and maintenance can be brought together through consolidation, considerably improving the use of resources and bringing a new flexibility to your entire IT environment. The handling of applications, services and data is improved, as are associated speeds.
Heterogeneous IT environments can be transformed into one uniform environment. System availability is increased. Customer experience shows that up to 50 per cent of a company’s servers can be made available for reallocation by realizing consistent standards and introducing the latest software. Because servers are often busy, they can be consolidated through virtualization.
