Implement Virtualization in Global Business Computing EnvironmentIntel IT planned, engineered, and has begun implementing a virtualized business-computing production environment. Our multi-year initiative has already confirmed virtualization benefits including server consolidation ratios between 10:1 and 16:1, faster deployment, and faster recovery.Server virtualization and consolidation promises to help organizations reduce costs, increase agility, and reduce energy consumption. However, implementing virtualization is complex and can appear daunting. To implement virtualization, we:• Performed analysis that showed even low consolidation ratios resulted in a positive return on investment (ROI).• Analyzed current resource utilization, available platforms, and risk factors to determine our optimum consolidation ratios.• Designed a virtualized architecture that includes hosts, storage, backup and restore (BAR), networking, and management. Planned and executed required engineering tasks and business processes.• We are initially focusing on consolidating older servers running applications that are not mission-critical. We see opportunities to achieve 16:1 consolidation ratios using two-socket virtualization hosts based on Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® processors.We are initially focusing on consolidating older servers running applications that are not mission-critical. We see opportunities to achieve 16:1 consolidation ratios using two-socket virtualization hosts based on Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® processors.We have already deployed several hundred virtual machines (VMs) and expect that our worldwide business-computing production environment will grow to about 1,200 VMs at several data centers worldwide by the end of 2008.Read the full Implement Virtualization in Global Business Computing Environment White Paper.
