PTS’ Hardware Virtualization Consulting Service includes a detailed Needs Analysis, Site Network Survey, Assessment Services and Technology Roadmaps associated with proper deployment of virtualization technology across the enterprise.
Hardware virtualization promises to have a major impact on the overall cost structure in the data center. In addition to improved processing efficiencies gained from virtualizing multiple servers on a single hardware platform, there are value gains available in real estate/space, power, and cooling by eliminating a hardware platform for every server. Beyond the server hardware infrastructure, virtualization will have a significant positive impact on storage and workstation infrastructure.
However, as with any exciting new technology, it is critical to avoid certain pitfalls which may happen when looking to the potential exciting results of hardware virtualization. Critical assessments and proper planning are necessary to avoid virtualization “sprawl”, overtaxed processors, inefficient storage access, ineffective backups, and potential security breaches.
Application analysis is achieved through multiple steps. Applications and application usage must be collected, filtered, and sorted into images. After images are generated, users are mapped to those images, and virtual machine templates are sized. The final step is to recommend the placement of users on ESX hosts.
