Consolidation

Data Center Consolidation Image of Spring Being Compressed

Data Center Consolidations require a reduction in the number of physical data centers and/or the number of servers being used by either decommissioning legacy servers, repurposing servers and/or the reduction in servers via virtualization. 

The Challenge

An analysis of your current infrastructure reveals that you are suffering from server sprawl, high levels of power consumption, redundant licenses and/or maintenance fees. Your analysis may also reveal that you are too geographically dispersed and that your disaster recover plans are disjointed and inconsistent. All problems contribute to:

  1. Higher capital costs
  2. Higher operating costs
  3. Longer response times to service requests
  4. Decreased reliability and increased downtime

The Solution

Consolidation of servers and/or data centers may be what’s required to reduce capital funds and operating costs while improving service delivery. Imagine being able to:

  1. Reduce hardware and operating costs by 50%
  2. Reduce energy costs by as much as 80%
  3. Provision new servers 70% faster
  4. Provide less downtime
  5. Deliver reliability in the event of a disaster recovery scenario
