Solutions to Data Center Virtualization Challenges

When a data center is virtualized, the number of physical devices is consolidated to combine the work of multiple servers.  This new configuration creates an increased demand for CPU, memory, and I/O.

 

This higher utilization of servers increases demand on your physical infrastructure. Higher power density, cooling demands, and bandwidth requirements make it important to transform your data center into a converged infrastructure solution.

Working with You to Improve Your Virtualized Data Center

As an extended part of your team, we work with you to address virtualization challenges:

  • Insufficient bandwidth —  assessment and planning help determine bandwidth requirements and build a migration plan.
  • High density server deployments exceed available cooling —  Cabinets, Vertical Exhaust Duct (VED), and Cold Aisle Containment (CAC) systems optimize cooling efficiency and save energy.
  • High density server deployments exceed available power —  SmartZone™ software and PViQ™ Power Outlet Units enable real-time monitoring of power usage to manage dynamic workloads and avoid power overloads
