MTM - Utilize XenServer and other Server Virtualization Solution to Optimize IT Systems
Declare your XenDependence! Challenged to simplify operations, cut costs and go green? Take the first step towards experiencing the freedom of virtualization.
Over time, organizations tend to build datacenters of underutilized servers. Servers that are dedicated to certain operating systems, dedicated to certain mission-critical data, servers that provide specific application functions, etc. And in this process of dedicating servers, these datacenters become a sprawl of underutilized assets – many servers only leveraging 15% of their capacity at any given time. Datacenters are expanding, operational costs are increasing, backup is becoming laborious, and management is almost unmanageable.
In answer to these challenges, technologies have been developed to help consolidate these underutilized resources and reverse the trends of waste and inefficiency – technologies such as Server Virtualization.
Server virtualization is essentially a technology that enables IT professionals to partition a single physical server into multiple virtual servers effectively improving the utilization of a single physical servers resources. Thorough Server Virtualization a single physical server can run multiple operating systems and host multiple applications within those operating systems. The technology leverages a bare-metal hypervisor that sits on the server and divvies up the physical server resources. In doing so, four physical servers, for instance, that each ran completely separate operating systems, but who each only required 15% of their servers capacity, can now be migrated o one physical server and operate in their own partition silo – or virtual server.
Download Citrix XenServer and get the only enterprise-class, cloud-proven server virtualization platform that delivers the critical features of live migration and centralized multi-server management at no cost.
Leveraging the Citrix XenServer technology MTM designs Server Virtualization strategies that significantly reduce the number of physical servers required to support business operations and in effect:
- Significantly reduce the datacenter's physical footprint
- Reduce operational costs by up to 50%
- Improve management efficiencies
If you are staring at a mountain of underutilized servers, scratching your head as to how you are going to drastically reduce costs, or looking for ways to improve your management capabilities within the datacenter, then Server Virtualization could be your answer. The first step is to understand the technology better and understand how it has helped other organizations like yours. Our Server Virtualization Assessment can help you with that first step!
