Managing peak demand fluctuations bw admin and academic computing functions 1

  1. 1. Dell Virtual Integrated System (VIS) Architecture
  2. 2. Compounding effect of your current IT environment inflates the cost of IT Devices you support Activities you perform Tools you use Soaring Complexity and OpEx
  3. 3. Educational Institute Challenges Decentralized Resource Ownership Seasonally Shifting Resource Demands Transient User Base Heavy use of Open Source
  4. 4. Educational Institute Use Cases Self Service Catalogue and Chargeback Dynamic Resource Provisioning Automatic Reclamation of VMs Heterogeneous Hypervisor Support
  5. 5. Dell VIS Self-Service Creator Automatic Provisioning Automated, policy-driven delivery of IT compute resources Role-based access to resource deployment within dedicated infrastructure pool Automatically reclaim underutilized or abandoned resources Multi-vendor solution support across the ecosystem, hardware, hypervisor, mgmt sw Role-based access for users to manage their resources throughout their lifecycle Workload Templates Sprawl Control Group-based Reservations Heterogeneous Ecosystem Self-service Portal Pre-packaged process automation workflows, tailor without code changes Providing IT users the power to deploy and manage their resources while enabling IT to respond faster to business requests and improve control over IT environments.
  6. 6. Tangible Results of VIS Self-Service Creator “ Self-service provisioning and virtual machine leasing are a central focus of how we take our private clouds to the next level.  Out of the box, VIS Creator provides a scalable foundation for simplifying and optimizing workload creation and lifecycle management.” – Matt Brooks, Sr. Enterprise Architect, Dell IT Choice Users choose and manage the right-sized resources for their business reducing the need to over provisioning Flexibility Integration into heterogeneous ecosystem and automatically reclaiming abandoned resources saves up to 27% of annual IT budget Agility Standard workloads and automated processes reduces the number of tasks by 64% and number of tools by 80%
