Metafore can help consolidate your infrastructure and streamline the operation and management of your IT environment.
Are you paying for the cost of owning and operating servers that are significantly underutilized? Server consolidation and virtualization solutions mitigate the costs and inefficiencies of “server sprawl” by consolidating workloads onto a shared pool of servers. Using virtualization software and specialized hardware such as high-performance/high-efficiency blade servers, Metafore specialists can design and implement a server consolidation solution that will help your organization substantially reduce costs and at the same time improve system efficiency, flexibility and performance.
Metafore also conducts reviews of your physical and virtual IT environments – whether as part of an internal assessment or a formal, externally driven audit – to establish proof of performance and, in many cases, to validate compliance with regulatory standards. Virtualization health checks bring together the expertise and experience of our certified professionals and the best practices established to meet the unique criteria for each of the major software and hardware manufacturers, such as VMWare, Citrix, HP, and IBM.
Consolidation/virtualization solutions are ideally suited for organizations looking to:
Reduce energy, maintenance and administrative expenses and total cost of ownership by reducing the number of servers while increasing their utilization,
Reduce the need for additional physical equipment by creating virtual machines instead of provisioning new hardware;
Rationalize their server environment by transforming individual servers, storage, and networking farms into a fully integrated pool of computing resources;
Enhance system manageability using centralized management, e.g., automated provisioning and migration.
