    • Case Study I: Environment Overview
      • 200 Physical Servers in production with an existing EMC Celerra storage infrastructure
      • FusionStorm engaged to assess and architect a DR solutions
      • Customer apprehensive to virtualize production but open to a virtualized DR strategy
    • Case Study I: FusionStorm Solution
      • Array based replication using Celerra Replicator for all data in the environment
      • PlateSpin to perform P2V (Physical-to-Virtual) conversion of all physical servers in production to the DR ESX servers
      • PlateSpin to apply incremental updates to the virtual ESX images in DR on a nightly basis
      • Live Demo
          • Celerra demonstration
            • UI
            • Demostrate SnapSure (via Windows integration)
          • Discuss and demonstrate VM and NFS replication
            • Replicate VMware NFS volume and start the replicated copy at the DR location
          • PlateSpin demonstration
            • Perform a host failover with PlateSpin
            • Build a PlateSpin job
    • Case Study I: Customer Benefits
      • Virutalization provided a dramatic reduction in DR footprint and cost
      • Customer is now has an RPO of minutes for mission critical application
      • Customer now has an RTO <= 30 minutes for most applications
      • Improved replication efficiency with Cisco WAAS
      • FusionStorm created and maintained DR documentation and run book
      • Dramatically simplified DR testing process
    • Case Study II: Environment Overview
      • Primary site in NYC with a branch location in DC
      • Customer relocating their data center from customer premise in NYC to a collocation facility in NJ
          • Users will remain in NYC and DC
      • Customer would like perform the migration with little to no downtime
      • Aging infrastructure (storage, network, server, etc…)
      • Customer has a significant number of temporary and contract employees
    • Case Study II: FusionStorm Solution
      • Complete data center refresh
          • Servers, storage, network, WAN acceleration, etc…
      • Replaced EMC CX500 FC array with EMC NS40 iSCSI solution
      • Upgraded network infrastructure to support VMware and iSCSI environment
          • Removed FC switch cost from the environment
      • Leveraged PlateSpin (using the same process demonstrated earlier) to migrate VMs from the current data center to the collocation data center
      • Leverage VMware VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) for temporary and contract employees
      • Leveraged WAAS to mitigate performance concerns for NYC and DC users
      • Live Demo
          • Cisco WAAS CIFS Demonstration
          • VDI Demonstration
    • Case Study II: Customer Benefits
      • Right sizing the storage infrastructure reduced complexity and improved operational efficiency
      • Savings provided by a move to IP based storage infrastructure allowed us to refresh aging Ethernet switch infrastructure
      • V2V migration strategy allowed to migrate from the NY data center to the NJ data center will little to no downtime
      • WAN Acceleration mitigated the performance concerns introduced when relocating the data center
    • Case Study III: Environment Overview
      • Customer has 12 branch office locations
      • Currently each site receives a standardized host configuration consisting of 8 physical servers
          • AD, DNS, DHCP, Doc Management, File Server, Backup, SQL, Exchange, etc….
      • Customers key concern is collapsing the physical infrastructure at these sites without sacrificing QoS
    • Case Study III: FusionStorm Solution
      • EMC AX4 shared storage solution w/ 2 VMware servers in regional hubs
      • Cisco WAVE to replace AD, DNS, DHCP, Print Servers in local offices
      • Collapse the File, Exchanges, SQL to regional hubs with WAN acceleration and local offices
      • P2V existing application servers
      • Leverage vReplicator to replicate virtual machines from remote locations to the primary data center located in NYC for remote office DR
      • Live Demo
          • vReplicator
          • vMotion or SRM Demo (Maybe)
    • Case Study III: Customer Benefits
      • Reduce physical server count from 8 to 2 servers
          • Shared storage and VMware HA/vMotion improved local fault tolerance
      • P2V provided the ability to rapidly consolidate
      • vReplicator provides disaster recovery services for remote offices by replicating virtual machines from the remote office to an ESX farm in the corporate data center.
      • WAAS improved consolidation ratios by providing the ability to collapse smaller remote office to regional hubs while continuing to provide an acceptable service level.
      • Easily demonstrated hard dollar ROI
