Advances in core infrastructure and application platform software and hardware technologies create tremendous opportunities to virtualize demanding workloads, including data based applications. Leveraging virtual and scalable infrastructure - 100s of servers can be efficiently, reliably, and manageably consolidated. This session will dive into the NEW DBC Appliance, leveraging virtualization and tuned and balanced infrastructure. We’ll go into detail regarding all phases of consolidation including how to assess environments using the MAP toolkit, how the appliance architecture enables high levels of performance, isolation. and resiliency, and into details around core operational capabilities such as P-to-V and self-service workflow-enabled provisioning of new fully configured servers. Also, we will cover advanced capabilities such as chargeback, sustained engineering (upgrades and patching), load balancing… If you have dozens to hundreds of servers and are interested to understand consolidation / private cloud options available today this is a session you’ll want to attend!
