Planning to bring all of your distributed IT under on thread and ease control and access? But want to do this without compromising performance? Well, what if we could help you consolidate and not only maintain performance, but improve it.

You’ve come to the right place. To make it easier for you, let us further classify Consolidation into sub-categories as follows:-

Server Consolidation

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. The practice developed in response to the problem of server sprawl, a situation in which multiple, under-utilized servers take up more space and consume more resources than can be justified by their workload.

Take a look at the following challenges in this domain:-

  • Is your Server doing the job your Storage is supposed to do?
  • Poor responsiveness
  • Inefficiency
  • Server sprawl
  • Complex, time-consuming server upgrades
  • Lack of mobility
  • Backup headaches
  • Scalability for you New Application release
  • Multi-vendor servers creating backup issues?

What does the industry say about it?

Servers in many companies typically run at 15-20% of their capacity, which may not be a sustainable ratio in the current economic environment. Businesses are increasingly turning to server consolidation as one means of cutting unnecessary costs and maximizing return on investment (ROI) in the data centre. Of 518 respondents in a Gartner Group research study, six percent had conducted a server consolidation project, 61% were currently conducting one, and 28% were planning to do so in the immediate future.

Although consolidation can substantially increase the efficient use of server resources, it may also result in complex configurations of data, applications, and servers that can be confusing for the average user to contend with. To alleviate this problem, server virtualization may be used to mask the details of server resources from users while optimizing resource sharing. Another approach to server consolidation is the use of blade servers to maximize the efficient use of space.

But that is exactly where we create a difference and add value to your Infrastructure by consulting you with solutions for the challenges with Emerging Technologies.
