You can migrate live VMs between Intel processor-based servers but migration in a mixed CPU environment requires downtime and administrative hassle A study commissioned by Intel Corp. One of the greatest advantages of adopting a adopting a public, private, or hybrid cloud environment is being able to easily migrate the virtual machines that run your critical business applications—within the data center, across data centers, and between clouds. Routine hardware maintenance, data center expansion, server hardware upgrades, VM consolidation, and other events all require your IT staff to migrate VMs. For years, one powerful tool in your arsenal has been VMware vSphere® vMotion®, which can live migrate VMs from one host to another with zero downtime, provided the servers share the same underlying architecture. The EVC (Enhanced vMotion Compatibility) feature of vMotion makes it possible to live migrate virtual machines even between different generations of CPUs within a given architecture.

This IDC study provides an evaluation of 10 vendors that sell all-flash arrays (AFAs) for dense mixed enterprise workload consolidation that includes at least some mission-critical applications. "All-flash arrays are dominating primary storage spend in the enterprise, driving over 80% of that revenue in 2017," said Eric Burgener, research director, Storage. "Today's leading AFAs offer all the performance, capacity scalability, enterprise-class functionality, and datacenter integration capabilities needed to support dense mixed enterprise workload consolidation. More and more IT shops are recognizing this and committing to 'all flash for primary storage' strategies."

Datacenter improvements have thus far focused on cost reduction and point solutions. Server consolidation, cloud computing, virtualization, and the implementation of flash storage capabilities have all helped reduce server sprawl, along with associated staffing and facilities costs. Converged systems — which combine compute, storage, and networking into a single system — are particularly effective in enabling organizations to reduce operational and staff expenses. These software-defined systems require only limited human intervention. Code imbedded in the software configures hardware and automates many previously manual processes, thereby dramatically reducing instances of human error. Concurrently, these technologies have enabled businesses to make incremental improvements to customer engagement and service delivery processes and strategies.

Jusqu’à présent, les améliorations du datacenter se sont limitées à la réduction des coûts et à des solutions ponctuelles. La consolidation des serveurs, le Cloud computing, la virtualisation et l’implémentation de stockage Flash ont contribué à réduire la prolifération des serveurs, ainsi que les coûts de personnel et d’installations associés. Regroupant ressources de calcul, de stockage et de réseau au sein d’une même solution, les systèmes convergés se révèlent particulièrement efficaces dans la baisse des dépenses de personnel et de fonctionnement. Ces systèmes définis par logiciel (software-defined) exigent peu d’interventions humaines. Le code intégré dans le logiciel configure le matériel et automatise de nombreux processus autrefois manuels, ce qui réduit considérablement le risque d’erreurs humaines. Ensemble, ces technologies ont permis aux entreprises d’améliorer progressivement les processus et stratégies d’engagement client et de prestation de services.

Data centers help state and federal agencies reduce costs and improve operations. Every day, government agencies struggle to meet critical cost controls with lower operational expenses while fulfilling the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative’s (FDCCI) goal. All too often they are finding themselves constrained by their legacy in-house data centers and connectivity solutions that fail to deliver exceptional data center reliability and uptime.

IT virtualization, the engine behind cloud computing, can have significant consequences on the data center physical infrastructure (DCPI). Higher power densities that often result can challenge the cooling capabilities of an existing system. Reduced overall energy consumption that typically results from physical server consolidation may actually worsen the data center’s power usage effectiveness (PUE). Dynamic loads that vary in time and location may heighten the risk of downtime if rack-level power and cooling health are not understood and considered. Finally, the fault-tolerant nature of a highly virtualized environment could raise questions about the level of redundancy required in the physical infrastructure. These particular effects of virtualization are discussed and possible solutions or methods for dealing with them are offered.

The data center is central to IT strategy and houses the computational power, storage resources, and applications necessary to support an enterprise business. A flexible data center infrastructure than can support and quickly deploy new applications can result in significant competitive advantage, but designing such a data center requires solid initial planning and thoughtful consideration of port density, access-layer uplink bandwidth, true server capacity, oversubscription, mobility, and other details.

The data center has gone through many major evolutionary changes over the past several decades, and each change has been defined by major shifts in architectures. The industry moved from the mainframe era to client/server computing and then to Internet computing. In 2011, another major shift began: the shift to a virtual data center. This has been the primary driver in enabling customers to transition to the cloud and ultimately IT as a service. The shift to a virtual data center will be the single biggest transition in the history of computing. It will reshape all the major data center tiers: applications, storage, servers and the network.

Today’s mega IT trends – cloud computing, big data, mobile and social media –have dramatically altered how enterprises work, requiring datacenters to find new, more flexible and cost effective ways to meet computing demands. For most datacenters, the path toward tomorrow's compute paradigm mandates an investment in standardization and consolidation as well as a more robust adoption of enterprise virtualization software, along with cloud system software to extend that virtualized infrastructure into a true private cloud environment. Linux has emerged as one of the key elements to a modernization program for a datacenter.

Most enterprise datacenters are so cluttered with individually constructed servers, including database servers, that staff time is largely taken up with just the maintenance of these systems. As a result, IT service to business users suffers, and the agility of the enterprise suffers. Integrated systems represent an antidote to this problem. By dramatically reducing the amount of setup and maintenance time for the applications and databases they support, integrated systems enable the technical staff to spend more of their time supporting users and enabling the enterprise to thrive.
