  • Let me demonstrate the need for virtualization in comic form – borrowed from a cloud provider which is an entirely different webinar. . . . So to begin with we have a lot of boxes – lots of boxes
  • You had several Admins and Engineers working feverishly on all the boxes you had
  • You use a lot of power and space.
  • As it grows you are both very busy and very tired. . . .
  • The existing system is both inflexible, ugly and takes wads of cash.
  • Virtualization is like floating in the clouds. . . . .Ok I did say humor but it is meant and designed to solve issues and make life easier and more productive.Moving on. . . .
  • Virtualized StorageThis exciting new option is for SMB implementations but there are many storage options to be discussed.

      Virtualization ●
      [vur-choo-uhl-iz-ey-shuhn]
      virt·tual·iz-a-tion●
      –noun
      Virtualization is the creation of a virtual (rather than actual) version of something, such as an operating system, a server, a storage device or network resources.

    • 20. What’s Driving Virtualization ?
    • 21. Today’s IT – Complex, Inefficient, Inflexible
      Where IT Energy Is Spent
      Cause
      • Overwhelming complexity
      • 22. Reliance on brittle infrastructure
      Effect
      • >70% of IT budgets just “maintaining” status quo
      • 23. <30% of IT budgets goes to innovation and competitive advantage
      5%Infrastructure Investment
      23%Application Investment
      42%Infrastructure Maintenance
      30%Application Maintenance
      Business Agility Depends on IT Agility
    • 24. Trend #1: Hardware Is Underutilized
      Today’s Hardware is more than 100,000 x more powerful than just 10 short years ago!
      What Is Driving Virtualization
    • 25. Trend #2: Data Centers are out of Space
      A recent study by the Enterprise Strategy Group predicted that governments and corporations will store over 25
      exabytes
      of data by the year 2010.
      What Is Driving Virtualization
    • 26. Trend #3: Energy Costs Are Escalating
      Energy Consumption and Cost should not be overlooked as a driving force for virtualization.
      What Is Driving Virtualization
    • 27. Trend #4: System Administrative Costs Are Rising
      As Hardware expands in an environment it needs to be maintained and the time restraints on IT staffs are being stressed to the limits.
      What Is Driving Virtualization
    • 28. Obviously something isn’t working very well…
      …so what should we do?
