  • 3. WHAT IS CONSOLIDATION ? “[Consolidation is] an approach to the  Reduce Server Count efficient usage of server resources in order to reduce the total number of  Increase Datacenter servers, increase datacenter density, density optimize connectivity, reduce energy and  Optimize connectivity TCO”  Reduce TCO IBM BladeCenters are the most efficient way to server consolidation  Green savings  Higher density and server count per U  Integrated network backplane  Green technology at best TCO©2008 LANexpert SA www.lanexpert.ch Slide 3
  • 4. WHAT IS VIRTUALIZATION ?  Virtualization started “[Virtualization is] a technique for hiding in 1960s by IBM… the physical characteristics of computing resources from the way in which other  Virtual Memory systems, applications, or end users  VLAN, trunk, VPN  RAID, volume interact with those resources” manager  Storage virtualization In other words: Simplify Complexity  Emulation For computing, virtualization can be grouped in  Native virtualization two types:  Paravirtualization  Application • Resource virtualization (Storage, Network, etc.) virtualization • Platform virtualization (Hypervisor)©2008 LANexpert SA www.lanexpert.ch Slide 4
