DATA CENTER VIRTUALIZATION
Automation, along with its many promises, also carries stigmas, preconceptions and misconceptions that are frequently overlooked. Read this newsletter to be aware and prepared for some of the pitfalls that lie ahead.
CHALLENGES WE ADDRESS
A look around the business world today would easily make you realize that the enterprises that are able to effectively execute their business strategies and expand globally are the ones that are ahead in adopting the latest technology. The big challenge here is to coin strategies which allows IT, which is the backbone of a modern enterprise, to support key growth initiatives under strict budgetary guidelines and intense competitive environments. This eventually leads you to two major areas- agility and asset-light operating model, which CIO’s today are trying to address with leading technology solution.
Virtualization is one such technology which has been able to deliver on both fronts for the last 15 years, driving both business agility and asset-light operating model. Virtual data centers are made specifically for enterprise business needs and was started with compute virtualization which completely disrupted the traditional approach of “one server per application”.
With the advent of public cloud infrastructure, virtualization evolved to extend its power to storage (SDS) and network (SDN). It also led to the emergence of newer technologies like containerization that are seeing more and more customer adoption. This asset-light operating model by virtualizing the environment will be the gateway to cloud platforms and is going to be the future end state for hybrid operating models to have a sustainable business growth.
Data Center Virtualization Service Offerings:
With extensive experience in IT Operations Management, HCL provides customers with effective efficient enablement and management of virtualization across, systems, network, storage and application.
While we offer traditional consulting services to virtualize servers, storage, networks and desktops, we also offer a Unified Virtualization-as-a-service (uVaaS) offering providing network, storage, server, desktop and data center virtualization. With this , we take over a client's hardware assets, virtualize them and “rent” them back to the client based on either a monthly frequency or usage of virtual instances within their own private data center.
HCL's Data Center Virtualization Fundamentals has helped many Fortune/Global 1000 organizations to embark on the Infrastructure Virtualization journey. We at HCL have developed a 5-step service pack which we call as our Virtual Data Center Lifecycle Services.
