Today’s Speakers<br />Dave Monty<br />Director of Sales Operations<br />dave.monty@consonus.com<br />(919) 379-8436 <br />Stan Yarbrough<br />Senior IT Consultant<br />stan.yarbrough@consonus.com<br />(704) 357-2722 <br />Lee Kaminski<br />Director of Product Management<br />lkaminski@akorri.com<br />(978) 431-1200 <br />
  3. 3. About Consonus<br />Data Centers<br />Data Center Efficiency<br />IT Consulting<br />Disaster Recovery<br />Managed Services<br />Data Protection<br />IT Infrastructure<br />VIrtualization<br />Energy Efficiency Cloud Computing 99.995% Availability<br />World-Class Technical Support and Customer Service<br />
  4. 4. Virtualization Challenges<br />Poor utilization of IT infrastructure elements<br />Virtualization limited to consolidation, not optimization<br />Generated accelerated storage growth<br />Intensified backup problems<br />A more complex environment poses management challenges<br />
  5. 5. Challenges:Virtual Infrastructure Management<br />Virtual Environments often are just as complex or even more complex than traditional environments to manage<br />Virtual Sprawl <br />Another layer of complexity it added to Cross-functional coordination<br />Disruption in established IT lifecycle management processes:<br />Troubleshooting takes longer<br />Capacity Planning becomes less reliable<br />Performance Optimization involves too many variables<br />Service Level Management is guesswork due to lack of baseline metrics<br />

Recognition that system management is required to advance to Stage 2</li></li></ul><li>Maximizing ROI<br />Full ROI at Stage 3<br />Tier 1 Applications Demand Higher Levels of Performance<br />Need to optimize more than just the server-storage equation alone<br />Will need optimized density of V-infrastructure resources<br />Automated Integration & Analysis<br />Proper capacity management to minimize CapEx.<br />
  35. 35. Visibility Challenges<br />Existing tools are domain specific<br />VMware and Microsoft have adequate VM management tools. <br />Server management tools are vendor specific<br />Storage utilization tools are storage vendor specific <br />Limited integration of tools throughout the environment <br />
