  • 1. The Intelligent, Automated IT INFRASTRUCTURE DELL CONFIDENTIAL PAVLOS KITSANELIS SOLUTIONS TEAM Wednesday, June 2, 2010
  • 2. DELL CONFIDENTIAL IMAGINE RECLAIM IT RESOURCES
  • 3. DELL CONFIDENTIAL Through 2012, virtualization will be the highest-impact trend in infrastructure and operation. Thomas Bittman, Gartner Data Center Conference: “Server Virtualization: Trends, Best Practices, and the Future” November 2007
  • 4. DRIVING FULL VALUE REQUIRES COMPREHENSIVE INFRASTRUCTURE STRATEGY MANAGEMENT KNOWLEDGE INFRASTRUCTURE Which Servers are best for Virtualization? What about storage… do we need a SAN? How much capacity? How does this impact my network? Which applications should be virtualized? Which should stay physical? What’s the ROI? Who owns the assets? How do we effectively manage virtual infrastructure? How do we control virtual machine “sprawl”? What’s the best practice for backup? COMPLEXITY IS GROWING Virtualization isn't just about raising the use level of x86 servers. Virtualization will have major operational, cultural and business process implications, and users must prepare now to get the best return on investment (ROI). - Gartner Data Center Conference: Day 3 Highlights 'Virtualization‘, Nov. 2007
  • 5. DELL STRATEGY Standardized to drive flexibility and value Pervasive across all infrastructures Empowering for all organizations SIMPLIFY VIRTUALIZATION DELL CONFIDENTIAL
  • 6. VIRTUALIZATION SIMPLIFIES IT BEYOND CONSOLIDATION More Effort More Return Server consolidation Legacy re-hosting Power efficiency Provisioning High Availability Disaster Recovery Workload Balancing Automation Capacity on Demand
  • 7. CONSOLIDATION WITH VIRTUALIZATION DELIVERS TANGIBLE BENEFITS
    • IN THE DATA CENTER
    • 50 cents spent on power & cooling for every $1 on servers 1
    • Real estate costs $1,000 per square foot; $40,000 per rack 1
    • Average server utilization <10% 1
    • WITH VIRTUALIZATION
    • Average number of virtual workloads consolidated on a single physical server is estimated at 10 in 2007 and 2008 2
    • Reduced overall hardware 22% 1
    • Up to 23% annual cost savings 1
    DELL CONFIDENTIAL 1 IDC, &quot;Virtualization and Multicore Innovations Disrupt the Worldwide Server Market,&quot; Doc # 206035, March 2007 2 Gartner, Dataquest Insight: Virtualization Impacts x86 Server Shipments, August 2007
  • 8. CHOOSING THE RIGHT HARDWARE PLATFORM Achieving a balance between cost and scalability for I/O, memory & external storage: CPU Multiple cores, CPU speed, architecture Memory I/O External Storage Virtualization requires 2-3X the I/O bandwidth over the network DIMM slot count is also a key consideration Virtualization solutions are typically SAN-based for storage
