For most organizations, consolidation is the starting point and primary initial driver for their virtualization efforts. By enabling the sharing and pooling of resources, virtualization has become a proven, adept and widely adopted technology in allowing organizations of all sizes to achieve some of their most important technology consolidation initiatives.

Increasing power demands and space limitations in the data center have begun to transition server virtualization technologies from luxuries to necessities. Server virtualization provides a path toward server consolidation that results in significant power and space savings, while also offering high availability and system portability. Today, vendors are building hardware and software platforms that can deliver virtualization solutions at near-native performance.

This white paper describes the trends that are not only keeping the mainframe market alive but are supporting its growth. The growing complexity of IT makes consolidation and simplification of IT asset management essential. At the same time, increases in energy costs and concern about the environment are also impacting markets. Mainframes are uniquely positioned to provide the automation and virtualization today's complex infrastructures require while using less energy.

Not long ago, if you asked an IT executive about transformation, there was a good chance you’d get a technology-centric response. You’d hear about consolidation and virtualization, power and cooling, security and availability. Today, the responses are different. This edition of Unleashing IT is all about transformation. Not technology change, but business change through the use of technology.

Consolidation through server virtualization is a powerful agent for datacenter change, but shrinking your server footprint is just a part of the value that server virtualization brings to your IT organization. This paper explores the TCO of server virtualization, the costs that drive TCO and factors you should consider when calculating the return on your next virtualization investment.

No matter your line of business, technology implemented four years ago is likely near its end of life and may be underperforming as more users and more strenuous workloads stretch your resources thin. Adding memory and upgrading processors won't provide the same benefits to your infrastructure as a consolidation and upgrade can. Read this research report to learn how upgrading to Dell's PowerEdge VRTX with Hyper-V virtualization, Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2, and Microsoft SQL Server 2014 could reduce costs while delivering better performance than trying to maintain aging hardware and software.

Although hardware storage prices have come down, storage administration and software expenses still run about seven times the cost of storage hardware. Storage consolidation provides a partial solution by expanding device connectivity and reducing points of management. However, once storage is consolidated, the job is only half done. You still need a centralized, flexible method of management that masks the complexity of the storage environment and reduces administrative overhead. That’s where virtualization fits in.

Virtualization was supposed to be the disruptive technology that saved IT. The cost savings from consolidation and the ease at which applications can be deployed promised to vastly improve delivery of IT services, free up IT staff to work on other projects, and not strain budgets. Unfortunately, lack of insight into IT resource status in highly virtualized environments and the complexity of the interactions between server, storage, and network elements have added to IT staff manual workloads and led most companies to dedicate too much time to operations and not enough time to innovation. This basically negates the major benefits of virtualization.

Data centers are large, important investments that, when properly designed, built, and operated, are an integral part of the business strategy driving the success of any enterprise. Yet the central focus of organizations is often the acquisition and deployment of the IT architecture equipment and systems with little thought given to the structure and space in which it is to be housed, serviced, and maintained. This invariably leads to facility infrastructure problems such as thermal “hot spots”, lack of UPS (uninterruptible power supply) rack power, lack of redundancy, system overloading and other issues that threaten or prevent the realization of the return on the investment in the IT systems.

Many organizations have understandably turned to consolidation and virtualization to reduce server complexity, footprint and cost-to-scale. The next step is to optimize performance using analytics, policy-based automation and new technologies like cloud computing. Companies that focus on server optimization are seeing greater flexibility and sustained cost and operational efficiencies, with administrators able to manage 2.5 times more servers and almost twice as many virtual machines per server.

This technical white paper presents benchmark results showing greater VM consolidation ratios than demonstrated in previous benchmarks and demonstrating the extent of the performance lead that PowerVM virtualization technologies deliver over x86-based add-on virtualization products. The tests, running two workload benchmarks of different consolidation ratios on POWER7 processor-based and comparable Intel-based systems, demonstrate the exceptional performance and scalability of PowerVM virtualization technologies compared to VMware vSphere1 on an x86-based platform.

As organizations continue to deploy server virtualization, questions have shifted from "if" to "how." Out of all 220 inquiries Forrester's IT infrastructure and operations team answered on data centers, servers, and virtual appliances in 2008 to date, 72 were specifically in regard to server virtualization. These IT professionals' most common inquiries addressed vendor comparison, optimum physical to virtual consolidation ratios, expected ROI, and situation-specific concerns regarding the possible benefits that virtual servers could provide. These inquiries came from organizations in the early stages of implementing server virtualization — if you are considering or are in the process of implementing, you too should be asking these questions.
