Improved Efficiency through Workload Optimisation


Published on

Improving company efficiency through a dynamic infrastructure and workload optimisation. Reduce downtime associated with migrations, maintenance or unplanned events. Centralise backup procedures, perform more reliable recoveries, recover to any-point-time, and flexibly run your server and desktop infrastrucure from centralised images.

  14. 14.<br />Dynamic Infrastructure<br />
  15. 15. 9<br /><br />Why Dynamic Infrastructure?<br />
  16. 16. Achieving a Dynamic Infrastructure<br />The path is difficult<br />Legacy challenge<br />In fast growth periods IT is built quickly with limited focus on cost efficiency or agility<br />Now dealing with significant technology shifts<br />Emergence of new platforms i.e. virtualisation, cloud <br />Provides more infrastructure flexibility but adds a layer of complexity <br />Support for both physical and virtual environments adds to challenges<br />Cost and time involved in infrastructure management<br />Re-provisioning servers, desktop management, disaster recovery<br />Learning new server, storage and virtualisation platforms is expensive<br />Compliance<br />New requirements on data accessibility <br />Archiving<br />
  17. 17. Top IT Concerns<br /><ul><li>Robust disaster recovery
  18. 18. Ability to deal quickly with infrastructure issues
  19. 19. Easier management of smaller business continuity needs
  20. 20. Understand value of new technologies
  21. 21. Deliver services to meet user needs and expectations
  22. 22. Improve efficiency and reduce operational cost of IT</li></li></ul><li>The Day-to-Day Reality<br />Typical questions<br /><ul><li>How can I replace a physical server because it is no longer performing optimally?
  23. 23. How can I allocate more disk space or processing power to a cluster?
  24. 24. What happens if the entire data centre needs to be moved to a different location?
  25. 25. How can I get maximum return on investment from my existing infrastructure?
  26. 26. How can I migrate data across disparate systems?
  27. 27. How can I protect and recover systems in the event of disaster?
  28. 28. How can I do all this with minimal disruption to users? </li></li></ul><li>Double-Take’s Approach<br />Focus on workload optimisation<br />Decouple workload from infrastructure<br />Run workload on any part of the infrastructure<br />Harness our strengths<br />Platform and application independent<br />Byte-level replication and server provisioning<br />Technology from acquisitions<br />TimeSpring – CDP and granular recovery<br />emBoot – iSCSI SAN and booting from SAN<br />13<br /><br />
