  • 15. Improving Operational Efficiency Reducing Do more work with the same number of 2 Operating Cost people = operating cost savings Free up resources and budgets from day- to-day maintenance to focus on future innovation and strategic projects Drivers of productivity improvements: Instant provisioning Dynamic patching Zero downtime maintenanceSource: IDC and VMware TAM program
  • 16. Value of Zero Downtime Server VMware VMotion Maintenance Server Maintenance is required for Updates to component hardware Updates / patches to the hypervisor Migration to newer servers Cost savings from zero downtime server maintenance with VMotion Avoid overtime cost to perform maintenance Avoid administrative time in scheduling downtime Business costs of downtime is specific to each industry and not included here For a 10 physical server, 150 VM environment, assuming: 2 hardware/ BIOS upgrades per server + 4 hypervisor patches = 6 maintenance activities per server per year Overtime Cost Scheduling Downtime 10 # of X 6 # of X ( 2 hrs Time to X $150/hr + 15 # of X 0.75 hr Time spent X $60/hr ) = $ 58,500 Overtimeservers updates perform apps per scheduling $/hr $/hr upgrade server downtime per app
  • 17. Value of Zero Downtime Storage VMware Moves Maintenance Storage VMotion Storage Maintenance is usually required for LUN optimization Upgrades to better hardware Cost savings from zero downtime storage maintenance with Storage VMotion Avoid overtime cost to perform maintenance Avoid administrative time in scheduling downtime and planning the move Avoid cost of buying an alternate data mover tool For a 10 physical server, 150 VM environment (50GB per VM of storage), assuming: Storage is moved once in 3 yrs, annualize 1/3 of the 7.5TB environment every year (2.5TB). ~20GB can be moved an hour. Overtime Cost Scheduling Downtime Planning Move Alternate Tool Cost 124 hrs X $150/hr + 248 hrs X $60/hr + 500 hrs X $60/hr + $5000 = $ 68,113 Time to Time spent Time spent Overtime Admin Adminmove 2.5TB scheduling planning $/hr $/hr $/hr each yr downtime the move
  • 18. Value of Dynamic Load Balancing VMware DRS Customers report that without DRS automatically balancing their environments, they would either Decrease their consolidation ratio – this means that the full HW cost savings are not realized. Customers report up to 30% decrease in consolidation ratios. Have to manually monitor VMs to place them appropriately.For a 10 physical server, 150 VM environment, assume that the consolidation ratio decreases by 30% from 15:1 to 10.Alternatively, administrators would have to spend time monitoring the cluster or responding to customer calls every day Increased Hardware Cost Decreased consolidation 5 servers X $8,000 = $ 40,000 ratio means More servers Hardware, license, power/ needed cooling, space costs per server OR OR Cost of Extra Admin Time Cost of increased 2.5 hrs. X 260 X $60/hr = $ 39,000monitoring time Admin Hours per day Days in a year costs/hr

Ensuring Business Continuity Reducing Lost Minimize 3 Operating Cost Revenue Reduce business risk without increasing costs or complexity Minimize lost revenue from and avoid costs of business downtime Drivers of productivity improvements: Built-in high availability Automated recoverySource: IDC and VMware TAM program
  • 21. Value of Automated Site Recovery VMware SRM SRM cost savings can have several contributions: Cost of lower disaster recovery site investment Cost of lower recovery plan planning and management time Cost of less lost business revenue Cost of less lost wages The below only captures a conservative estimate of savings from lost business revenue and lost productive time Company that does $5M in revenue a year = ~$20k / weekday. Assume a disaster strikes. Assume that SRM can achieve RTO of 24 hours instead of 72 hours compared to traditional DR plan. Value of Lost Revenue Value of Lost Time by Workers 2 X $20,000 X X + 2 X 40 X $300/dy = $ 64,000 Days of Lost revenue Days of Number of Cost of workerfaster recovery per day faster recovery workers wages (Per disaster)
  • 22. Value of High Availability VMware HA High Availability cost savings can have several contributions: Cost of lost business, lost work Cost of lost productive time The sheer simplicity of VMware HA and reduced time & effort compared to other clustering solutions is not captured The below only captures a conservative estimate of savings from lost productive time For a 10 physical server, 150 VM environment, assuming 2 failures a year: Value of Reduced Lost Productive Time 4 hrs. X X 10 X 15 X $50/hr X 2 = $ 60,000 Hours of Number of Number of Cost of User Failures downtime users per VM VMs per host productive time per year in 10- host cluster
  • 23. Value of Fault Tolerance VMware FT Fault Tolerance (FT) cost savings is primarily in preventing lost business revenue from when mission-critical, high-revenue applications go down Fault Tolerance prevents lost business revenue by providing zero downtime, zero data loss continuous availability for your applications The simplicity of FT and reduced time & effort compared to other hardware-based solutions is not captured For a 10 physical server, 150 VM environment, assume ~10% of VMs are protected by FT (15 VMs). 2 host failures in the cluster per year. Lost revenue per minute of high-revenue apps can range from $2000-15000 per minute depending on type of transactions being processed. Value of Lost Revenue Extra Hosts for FT 4 X $7000/min X X 15÷10 X 2 - $15000 Cost per X 1 Number of = $ 69,000Minutes of Lost revenue Avg. number of Failuresdowntime per minute FT-protected VMs per year in 10- host extra hostsprevented per host host cluster
