Server Consolidation and Virtualization Services
Virtualization and consolidation services are offerings that help organizations optimize their IT infrastructure by leveraging virtualization technology to consolidate resources and improve efficiency.
Virtualization and consolidation services are offered by various providers, including Cisco, VMware, Nutanix. We at CDS have Partnered with Multiple Providers to build your Virtualization Requirements.
CDS Advantage with
Cisco HyperFlex HCI provides organizations with a scalable, integrated, and simplified infrastructure solution. It enables efficient resource utilization, ease of management, and flexibility to meet evolving business needs. With its focus on integration with Cisco’s networking and management technologies, HyperFlex offers a comprehensive solution for organizations looking to deploy a unified HCI platform.
CDS Advantage with
Nutanix is primarily known for its hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions, where compute , storage, networking, and virtualization are tightly integrated into a single appliance or software-defined platform. Nutanix HCI enables server consolidation by allowing organizations to run multiple virtual machines (VMs) on a single hardware platform. By leveraging the Nutanix Acropolis hypervisor (AHV).
CDS Advantage with
VMware vSphere is a leading virtualization platform that allows organizations to consolidate multiple physical servers into a virtualized environment. It abstracts the underlying hardware and enables the creation and management of virtual machines (VMs) running on a consolidated pool of physical resources.
VMware vSphere includes VMware ESXi, a powerful and lightweight hypervisor that serves as the foundation for virtualization. ESXi enables the efficient allocation of CPU, memory, storage, and networking resources among multiple VMs, maximizing server utilization
The CDS Advantage towards your Journey of Planning, Implementation and Deployment for datacenter virtualization and Server consolidation .
These services can be tailored to the specific needs of organizations, helping them optimize their IT infrastructure, improve resource utilization, simplify management, and achieve cost savings while ensuring the availability and performance of their applications and services.
We help you Assess Current Infrastructure: Evaluate your existing datacenter infrastructure, including servers, storage, networking, and applications. Understand the current resource utilization, performance bottlenecks, and scalability limitations. Identify areas where virtualization can bring the most benefits.
We Help you Define Objectives and Goals: Clearly define your objectives and goals for virtualization. This could include reducing hardware and operational costs, improving resource utilization, enhancing agility, enabling easier scalability, or improving disaster recovery capabilities.
We would help you Identify Virtualization Platform: Consider factors such as features, scalability, compatibility with existing infrastructure, ecosystem support, and cost. Choose a platform that aligns with your organization’s requirements and long-term goals.
We help Capacity Planning: Determine the capacity and resource requirements for your virtualized environment. Assess factors like CPU, memory, storage, and networking needs for running virtual machines and supporting applications. Consider future growth and scalability requirements. Use capacity planning tools or consult with virtualization experts to ensure adequate resource allocation.
We help you define your Networking and Storage Considerations: Evaluate your networking infrastructure to ensure it can support the increased traffic and demands of virtualized environments. Consider network bandwidth, redundancy, and security requirements. Similarly, assess storage infrastructure to determine if it meets the performance, capacity, and data protection needs of virtual machines.
We help you define your Security and Compliance: Address security and compliance considerations in your virtualization plan. Evaluate security features provided by the virtualization platform, such as network segmentation, access controls, encryption, and vulnerability management. Ensure compliance with relevant industry regulations and implement proper security measures for protecting virtualized assets.
We help you Plan your Virtual Machine Placement and Migration: Determine the optimal placement of virtual machines within the virtualized infrastructure. Consider workload characteristics, resource requirements, performance considerations, and potential interdependencies between applications. Develop a migration plan to transition physical servers or applications to virtual machines.
We help You in your Backup and Disaster Recovery planning : Develop a backup and disaster recovery strategy for your virtualized environment. Consider solutions for regular backups, replication, and recovery procedures. Ensure that critical applications and data are protected and can be restored in case of failures or disasters.
We prepare you for Day 2 Operations with Training and Staff Readiness: Ensure your IT staff is adequately trained and prepared to manage and support the virtualized environment. Provide training and resources for virtualization technologies, management tools, and best practices. Encourage knowledge sharing and collaboration among IT teams.
We execute Testing and Piloting: Before fully deploying virtualization, conduct testing and piloting phases to validate the design, identify potential issues, and fine-tune the configuration. Run performance tests, simulate workload scenarios, and evaluate the impact on applications and user experience. Incorporate feedback and make necessary adjustments before full-scale implementation.
