  • With energy costs associated with data centers and computing environments, coupled with management costs, IT faces multiple challenges. Not to mention they must stay secure, meet compliance and regulations, deal with an ever-changing workforce, and Business Continuity. Business Continuity in the event of an unforeseen disaster.
  • Our agenda today is to discuss:Server virtualizationDesktop VirtualizationAnd the Green PCWe will dive deeper into desktop virtualization to discuss scenarios, strategies, and recommendations.
  • So what about Server Virtualization?
  • It’s not a question of will you use virtualization as a strategy, but when.
  • Historically, organizations have one server and one application residing together. This is inefficient because most servers only use 10% of their capabilities. That’s like driving a Porsche 10 miles an hour. Imagine using 60 to 80% of the servers capabilities and having multiple applications residing on that same physcial server. Virtualization creates virtual machines which work alone within the hardware environment. If one goes down, the others keep working. Imagine being able to reduce your servers down to 10%. If you have 1000 servers, you can reduce them down to 100 servers. If you have a 10,000 servers, you can reduce it down to 1,000 servers.
  • Virtualization has many virtues, including: data center optimizationConsolidating servers down to 15-20%Quick ROI within 6-12 monthsReduction of power & cooling by 50%Reduction of Carbon FootprintReduction in Real Estate spaceIn the DC metro area we have the highest prices for data center space.
  • Here we have a calculation of 100 servers in using virtualization. We have a savings of $2.5 million dollars, that means they wasted $2.5M dollars the previous years they were not utilizing virtualization.We have an energy savings of 247,000 KwhsThat is equivalent to 8555 trees planted and 13 cars off the roadWhat would your environment look like with a 66% decrease in cost and energy consumption.Visualize a row of ten racks being consolidated down to 1 or 2 racks.That’s the power of virtualization.
  • What’s next?
  • On my personal laptop and PC, I like the power I have with my hard drive and memory. I have total freedom. I do not want anyone to have access to my hard drive, but when it comes to running business I disagree. Businesses have customer data and proprietary information running on systems. My receptionist does not need an 150GB HD so she can download 1000 songs from iTunes.
  • For the desktop environment, there are four ways we can go with desktop virtualization.Desktop VirtualizationLocal Desktop VirtualizationHosted Desktop VirtualizationApplication VirtualizationLocal Application VirtualizationHosted Application Virtualization
  • Desktop virtualization:A computing environment consisting of an operating system, applications, and associated data that is abstracted from the user’s PC.Laymen’s terms: everything resides on the PC!
  • Here we have a diagram of Desktop Virtualization Local & Hosted. On the left we can see Local Desktop Virtualization where everything resides on the PC locallyOn the right we see the Hosted Desktop Virtualization utilizing PCs and/or thin clients.
  • Application Virtualization:An application that is abstracted from the user’s OS and runs in isolation from other applicationsHosted application virtualization is a new term for legacy server-based computing.
  • Here we have a diagram of Application Virtualization Local & Hosted. On the left we can see Local Desktop Virtualization where everything resides on the PC locallyOn the right we see the Hosted Desktop Virtualization utilizing PCs and/or thin clients.
  • Different users require different technologies.
  • Today’s users fall into 3 basic categoriesTask-Based WorkersLimited apps and limited performance requirementsEasiest for IT to manage — require limited customizationKnowledge WorkersStandard office apps and medium performance requirementsHarder for IT to manage — app conflicts are commonplacePower UsersCompute-intensive apps and high-performance requirementsHardest for IT to manage — require full control of their PCs
  • Are your users mobile, remote, or just contractors not associated with your company? These are more things you must consider when establishing the best desktop virtualization strategy.
  • Here is an excellent chart to figure out which direction to go when establishing a virtualization strategy for the client user. I will be furnishing a copy of the presentation for your perusal.If you follow it from left to right, you will see where you can start with:Task-Based UserKnowledge WorkerPower User
  • Case study: Large Hotel ChainHere we have a large hotel chainProblem:In front desk operations, reservations and check-ins are essential (minutes can mean millions of dollars).It needs to streamline the process of application delivery.It needs a solution that can scale to 300,000 desktops worldwide.The benefits of virtualizing applications are:Cutting the time it takes to package applications in half Decreasing testing times Decreasing support costs
  • Case study: Federal GovernmentProblem:The government agency must support a large mobile workforce.It must protect data that is vital to national security.The agency is responsible for supporting 250,000 devices in several locations.The benefits of virtualizing applications are:Centralizing the agency’s most valuable data so that it doesn’t live out on the user devices Helping with Windows 7 migration Increasing productivity by delivering applications to users, regardless of location
  • Case study: Major UniversityOne thing is truw about college students, is that you never know what you’ll find on PCs after they use them. Configuration management is paramount. They can upload music, video, malware, and virus’. Desktop Virtualization can help with these issues.Problem:Universities run computer labs, which are subject to a large body of students and faculty. Every year requires a software/hardware refresh.It needs to streamline the process of application delivery.Increase security, flexibility, and reliability.It needs a solution that can scale to 150,000 desktops campuswide.The benefits of virtualizing applications are:Cutting the time it takes to package applications in half.Decreasing testing times.Decreasing support costs.Increasing security, flexibility, and reliability.
  • Case study: Healthcare CompanyI use to be a Navy Corpsman and I worked on the CHCS system which is currently being usedProblem:It is a highly regulated industry — must increase compliance.It has 5,300 users that need anywhere access to sensitive data.It needs to streamline its management of the PC environment.The benefits of virtualizing desktops are:Lowering support costs — no longer sending technicians for desk visitsReducing provisioning timeCentralizing data — HIPAA data no longer on endpoints Decreasing power consumption by 72% — thanks to thin clients
  • Strengths (and weaknesses) of desktop virtualization
  • Strengths of client virtualizationLocal desktop virtualization Turns unmanaged users into managed users No need to provision full PCs to contractors Native backup and recoveryHosted desktop virtualization Centralized data Reduced management burden Simple patch management The user experience doesn’t change. Native backup and recoveryLocal application virtualizationReduces regression testing for applications Supports legacy and new applications together Resolves application conflict issues Reduces application management costs Better license managementHosted application virtualization Centralized data Reduced application management burden Removes application incompatibilities Performance-intensive applications won’t affect PCs.
  • Weaknesses of client virtualizationLocal desktop virtualization Performance-intensive on PC Windows licensing Addresses few of the desktop challengesHosted desktop virtualization *Sufficient* network connectivity is a must. The user experience can suffer. Expensive Windows licensingLocal application virtualization Must map application dependencies (today) Addresses few of the desktop challengesHosted application virtualization Changes the user experience Internet connectivity is a must. Not all applications will work on a server OS.
  • There are somechallenges to client virtualization in a desktop environment such as:Business ContinuityChanging WorkforceComplianceSecurityManagementThis chart displays how you can choose a solution that best fits your needs.
  • Here we have a calculation of 1000 PCs in using virtualization. We have a savings of $4.1 million dollars, that means they wasted $4.1M dollars the previous years they were not utilizing virtualization.We have an energy savings of 400,000 KwhsThat is equivalent to 13,846 trees planted and 20 cars off the roadWhat would your environment look like with a 66% decrease in cost and energy consumption.NOTE: Keep in mind these savings can be offset by the purchase of new hardware and software, but I may have a solution for that.
  • What is a Green PC?
  • Imagine a PC with smaller components, less moving parts, less plastic, and a highly aluminum case.
  • One of our proudest achievements is the development of the Verdio Green PC. To extend your virtualization needs, we developed this Green PC to further save on greenhouse emissions. To virtualize your servers, desktops, applications, and use a Green PC to replace old clunkers and energy wasters, you will go far beyond what is expected. And, why not?It is currently being beta-tested at several companies, including:Wal-MartMarriott InternationalGeorge Mason UniversityAmerican UniversityAmerican Diabetes AssociationRedskins
  • Here we have a calculation of 1000 Verdio Green PCs without being virtualized. We have a savings of $4.3 million dollars, that means they wasted $4.3M dollars the previous years they were not utilizing virtualization.We have an energy savings of 421,000 KwhsThat is equivalent to 12,139 trees planted and 18 cars off the roadWhat would your environment look like with a 66% decrease in cost and energy consumption.This is without virtualization, this is from just swapping regular PCs with Verdio.That’s the power of Verdio
  • Recommendation
  • You cannot improve what you cannot measure. We highly recommend that you measure your IT Infrastructure from the ground up. We can provide you a Green IT Assessment to provide a baseline, and we help you chart a course. Right now, we have developed an online calculator that you can use to get a quick ROI calculation of your environment. Feel free to use the calculator to see what EcomNets can do for you.
  • If you are a company committed to Green IT Technology we have a special offer just for today for a $99 Verdio Green PC with keyboard and Mouse.(This offer excludes Information Technology companies that resell hardware, software and computer related services. In addition, you are limited to one Green PC at that price. Any purchases beyond that will be at regular price.)
