  • Now let me tell you a little about our four different solution areas: Windows, Database, Application, and Virtualization.
  • Quest supports every phase of virtualization adoption:Moving to a Virtual Infrastructure (e.g. POC) Making Virtualization a Production Standard (e.g. Production Ready)Establishing a Virtualization First Strategy Gaining and Maintaining Visibility and Control of the Virtual Infrastructure (e.g. Aligned, Strategic)
  • Our virtualization management solutions help customers realize the benefits of server and desktop virtualization as well as cloud automation.Some of the features and benefits that these products provide include:Flexibility to manage VDI, terminal services, and physical blade PCs for virtual desktops, all from a single solutionCapacity planning, performance optimization, backup and recovery of virtual serversRapid, affordable deployment and ongoing management of private clouds

    23. 23. Chargeback How can I easily identify costs for resources used? How can I report/bill for these costs?
    24. 24. Chargeback Tiered Flat Rate (TFR) • VMs are pre-configured with a fixed cost • High predictability to a VMs cost throughout its lifecycle • Allows the end user to specify a set of CPU and memory counts as well as share allocations • Charge for those VMs that need more beyond the base configuration • Metered costs possible atop this model
    25. 25. Chargeback Measured Resource Utilization (MRU) • Calculations are performed by determining: • Each VMs actual utilization • Applies the appropriate cost/unit calculation for each resource based on the weighting configuration. • Partial Cost Recovery • IT absorbs costs for a portion of the infrastructure that are going unused • Full Cost Recovery • IT is not a cost center, rather it charges the full costs to customers or the business
