Modernizing Data Center in order to reduce number of machines, improve performance and rationalize efficiency is key for most customers and key for hosting integrators. HP Enterprise services did this exercise for one of its customer by proposing a KVM based virtualized data center infrastructure.
The transformation consisted into migrating existing Linux, Windows, Solaris, HP-UX based systems and applications into KVM VMs (RHEL Hypervisor) running Windows or Linux. The migration was from 3 physical data centers to 2 ones, one being new, and the deployment of 150 hypervisors to support the original 3000 applications running on physical systems.
The presentation will be made jointly by HP and RH consultants that were involved in the transformation at the various stages of the project life cycle (Proof of Concept, Data Center Transformation, Consulting for tuning and optimization, ...)
