  • Data provided by Vmware.comServer consolidation is the number one reason and success for virtualization. There is tremendous efficiency and cost savings when consolidating server infrastructure.
  • Today most people have servers and use tape based backups. These backups protect the data, but the system recovery process is long and slow. Often requiring a manual rebuild of the operating system and applications installed because any data can be restored and users put back to work.With Virtual Servers you can backup the “entire” server making the recovery process much much faster and accurate.
  • Transcript

    • 1. Cal Net Open House
    • 2. Tonight’s Agenda
      • Introduction of our team members in the room
      • 3. Our latest attempt at becoming a production company
      • 4. Virtualization – Hyper-V
      • 5. Windows 7 tips and tricks…
      • 6. Raffle 5 copies of Win 7 and handout copies of Office 2007 (toward the end of the evening)
      • 7. Best of all… networking and hanging out.
    • “The IT Guy”
    • 8. Virtualization
      Presented by Zachary Schuler
    • 9. What is Virtualization?
      Virtualization technology is a way of making one physical computer function as if it were two or more computers
      Today’s computers are so much more powerful that even just a few years ago that many machines are underutilized
    • 10. Why Virtualization?
      • Maximize hardware
      • 11. Simplify test and development environments
      • 12. Quickly respond to business needs
      • 13. Improved system availability and business continuity
      • 14. Reduce power needs
      • 15. Reduce cooling costs
      • 16. Overall Cost savings
    • Maximize hardware resources
      By running multiple operating systems on a single computer
      • Increase utilization of existing hardware from 5% - 15% up to 80%
      • 17. Reduce hardware requirements by a much as 10:1 ratio
      • 18. Energy consumption can be reduced by as much as 80%
    • test and development environments
      Have you ever wanted to have a copy or copies of your production systems for testing?
      Cal Net Example: 4 accounting servers into 1.
      In summary, virtual environments are easy to make isolated copies of systems for testing
    • 19. Quickly respond to business needs
      Install new servers and applications in days not weeks or months
      • In the past getting a new piece of software often meant new server hardware
      • 20. Lead time to get equipment and time to install it
      With virtualization in place new servers can be installed on existing server hardware on demand
    • 21. system availability and business continuity
      Virtual Machines free the server Operating System from hardware dependency
      • Because virtual machines are not dependant on any particular hardware, and they can be moved easily to another computer
      • 22. Backups are easy too because Virtual Machines are just a few files
      • 23. Backups of Virtual Machines can be taken offsite and recovered anywhere in the case of an emergency
      • 24. Snapshots or point in time pictures of virtual machines allow easier recovery from all kinds of issues
    • Reduce energy Needs
      In the before picture you have several servers not working all that hard but each is consuming electricity
      In the after example one server is powering all three servers workloads but consuming the electricity of just one machine
    • 25. Reduce energy Needs
      Have heat issues in your computer/server room?
      Heat is the #1 killer of electronic equipment, reducing its lifespan and causing outages
      With less servers, cooling needs are reduced.
    • 26. Cost savings
      • Buy less hardware
      • 27. Pay less in warranty renewals because you have less equipment
      • 28. Less equipment to manage
      • 29. Future hardware refreshes reduce labor because you are just copying files (VM servers) instead of reinstalling them
      • 30. When software is updated reinstallation will be required
    • Windows 7 Tips and Tricks
    • 31. Some Data points on Windows 7
      • Three months following the release of Windows 7, out of 923 IT Professionals at large organizations surveyed, 88% said that they had plans on migrating.
      • 32. 46% DO NOT plan on waiting for the release of Service Pack
      • 33. This is a HUGE change over Windows Vista, and Microsoft has done a great job alleviating their “Black Eye” they got from Vista.
    • Zack’s 7 reasons for windows 7
      Improved Task Bar and full-screen previews
      Jump Lists
      Windows “Snap”
      Improved Search – Files, email, etc. (Video)
      Better Device Management http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/features/device-management
      Personalizing your PC (Video)
      Windows XP Compatibility Mode
    • 34. Thank You!
