PTS’ Data Center Virtualization Needs Analysis Service is a comprehensive business requirements analysis of a client’s future virtualization needs including required hardware, targeted server consolidation and optimization, applications needing separation for proper operation and performance, required numbers of virtual servers, operational flexibility requirements, security requirements, impact on disaster recovery, and network operational management.

The goal of this service is to fully understand the existing and future requirements of the client’s server infrastructure and the value that a Virtualization Strategy may provide. PTS can perform this service standalone or in combination with a Virtualization Site Survey Service in preparation for Assessment, Planning and development of a Technology Roadmap and/or systems design for virtualization.

The Virtualization Needs Analysis Survey includes the following:

  • An understanding of the business benefits of a virtualization strategy
  • Identification of appropriate virtualization techniques and solutions for use throughout the enterprise for IT infrastructure equipment (servers and storage area networks)
  • Review of potential cost reductions, operational flexibility, and responsiveness provided by virtualization of infrastructure
  • Determination of how much host capacity is needed in the near- and long-term to support the enterprise
  • Virtualization spending requirements as a percentage of total IT budget
  • Tools for proper optimization and management of the virtual infrastructure
