Data Center Rationalization

  • Client: Confidential
  • Date: FY12Q3
  • Category: Strategy / ITAM / Technology

Opportunity


The client had aging and bloated data center which was causing budgetary pressure due to a managed service contract.

Solution


Beaconize discovered, analyzed, and recommended a cleanup exercise for a large government system integrator. Reduced the data centers footprint, power consumption, and cooling requirements by removing legacy, obsolete, and redundant physical servers. Removed more than 15% of the servers without business interruption which had positive trickle-down effects on storage/backup/DRP.
