Understanding your business requirements
Server sprawl within any data centre can produce a number of headaches to your business. This can be related to increased maintenance and support costs, rising power and cooling charges or increased management overheads in keeping all the lights on.
Gaining a better understanding of the current server environment will allow you to make better judgements when looking to implement new applications or expand existing ones. A server analysis will also highlight any underutilisation within the current server set up. There may be an opportunity to perform a server consolidation exercise to reduce current and future overheads.
Once the server analysis has been completed, a report will be provided back to your organisation detailing the current server layout. This will include server types, names and utilisation around CPU, memory and disk resources. Workloads will be provided for power and cooling statistics along with recommendations for server consolidation and virtualisation to improve efficiency
