In today's enterprise environments customers are faced with increased
demands for serviceability, reliability and availability of mission critical
systems. This demand in conjunction with the number of servers and storage
has significantly increased the cost of support, while reduced IT budgets
and the need to reduce this complexity have created the perfect environment
Consolidation is the process of consolidating servers, applications,
data, and workloads into fewer sites and space, with the objective of
centralizing and simplifying the administration of these systems. Server and
Storage Consolidation is more than replacing a set of smaller servers or
storage devices with fewer, larger ones. Consolidation enables organizations
to simplify and optimize their systems infrastructure through a defined
Server consolidation has long been perceived as a “box reduction”
initiative. Minntek views server consolidation as more than a cost takeout
exercise that only addresses the physical infrastructure, but as a strategic
initiative that enables the processes, organization and technologies to
deliver an optimized and resilient infrastructure.
Server consolidation is the first step toward designing and implementing
a more rational, efficient and flexible IT environment that can support your
strategic business objectives.
Server consolidation simplifies IT services by creating centralized
applications, data management, security, and overall workloads. That
simplification, in turn, delivers improved service.
While the cost of storage is decreasing, the amount of data that
businesses need to have available and the cost of managing that data are
increasing. Companies demand the ability to fully utilize and expand their
storage assets to meet future needs and leverage their current technology.
To resolve this problem companies are looking to storage consolidation to
increase efficiency, save valuable resources and provide data on-demand.
Storage consolidation brings together data from difference sources and is
combined into a centralized or format for reduced redundancy. It increases
efficiency, centralizes management and creates greater control.
Consolidation provides the streamlined framework needed to properly
assess and transform an IT infrastructure for added business value delivery.
A consolidated and optimized infrastructure environment can better enable IT
to deliver on its promise to help drive new business and new revenue
opportunities by allowing companies to be more responsive and more
