Every business and organisation undergoes constant change to improve and streamline the delivery of I.T. services. Consolidation and virtualisation of systems aims to reduce the annual on-going cost of I.T. services, and will provide additional physical space and headroom within power and cooling systems for existing data centres, server & computer rooms environments.
Consideration must be given into the duration to implement these strategies, and that the existing supporting environment has the available power and cooling capacity to cope with the additional server hardware during any migration.
Data migration and testing can take anywhere up to six months to successfully complete. During this time the data centre may have additional strain on the power and cooling infrastructure due to additional server hardware and this could result in potential unplanned downtime.
It addition to migration is the deployment of Blade servers, HPC (High Performance Clusters), NettApp’s, SAN’s and other proprietary cabinets. These higher density systems can demand more power and cooling from the data centre.
A capacity planning survey, review & report mitigates the risk of downtime and provides piece of mind for I.T. services and business continuity during critical projects and upgrades.
Capacity planning also ensures that right sizing is endorsed within the power and cooling infrastructure to minimise potential system losses, and helps to determine future expansion requirements during the early data centre, server & computer room design stages.
