When it comes to managing your server environment, Dell’s expertise can help in every phase of the consolidation process. We can help reduce the complexity of your server consolidation, while also helping to manage cost and simplify your overall IT infrastructure. Dell’s comprehensive approach to server consolidation helps you accelerate productivity by delivering customized systems, software and services that ease management and can result in lower total cost of ownership. Dell Consultants can help you simplify operations, improve utilization and plan for cost effective scaling.
Our workshop process can help you understand the potential of server consolidation. A workshop complements any phase of the solution life-cycle. Dell experts can show you how server consolidation can meet your current and future requirements. An assessment determines the scope of consolidation with virtualization, if required, and can provide a roadmap for planning and design, that includes:
- Logical consolidation to simplify operations by implementing common processes and standard systems management procedures.
- Physical consolidation to co-locate systems to help reduce the number of sites/data centers.
- Application consolidation and combine mixed workloads onto a single system.
Our Consultants provide a design for server consolidation that includes comprehensive and detailed server consolidation architecture and implementation plan, based on our field experience. At the conclusion of the design engagement Dell experts can implement your complete server consolidation solution – hardware and software - so that you can quickly capture the value of the solution.
Dell can offer end-to-end solutions with a single point of contact for hardware, software, services and on-going support.
