As enterprises grow, IT organizations must rapidly add computing capacity – often in the form of new servers with disparate operating environments. The resulting server sprawl is costly in terms of capital and people needed to operate, manage, and upgrade new servers.

MCSA’s VMware consultants have developed standard solution packages that provide the highest value in a compressed timeframe. By leveraging the process, materials, and best practices developed across numerous customer engagements, we can provide you with a fast, efficient, and cost-effective solution.

Our Consulting Services

VMware ESX Server Virtualisation Services
IT organisations must rapidly add computing capacity – often in the form of new servers with disparate operating environments. The resulting server sprawl is costly in terms of capital and man hours.Server consolidation with VMware software provides a solution by enabling unprecedented levels of workload isolation and granular resource control for all of the system’s computing and I/O resources. Virtual Infrastructure integrates well with existing system management software and improves return on investment in shared storage (SAN).

By consolidating physical systems in the data center onto servers with VMware virtual infrastructure, enterprises experience:

  • Lower hardware acquisition and maintenance costs
  • Consolidation of idle system resources
  • Increased operational efficiency
  • Cost-effective and consistent production environments

ESX Server
The objective of this solution is to get you up and running on VMware ESX Server virtual machine software for consolidating and partitioning servers in high-performance environments, quickly and effectively. MCSA’s VMware consultants will work with you to install and configure this highly scalable virtual machine platform so you learn how to take full advantage of this product’s advanced resource management capabilities to guarantee service levels.
This solution helps customers maximize their time and resources by helping them quickly understand and utilize the special capabilities of VirtualCenter. An existing VMware ESX installation is assumed, or VirtualCenter can be combined with an ESX. Customers will obtain effective knowledge transfer by walking through an installation and getting VirtualCenter working in their own environment. By leveraging the experience of MCSA’s VMware Professional Services, customers will be more expedient and successful in their VirtualCenter deployment.
Physical to Virtual (P2V) Migrations
Using custom tools that we’ve developed, MCSA’s VMware consultants will assist you in importing the workloads of your physical servers into virtual machines. P2V Migrations are ideal for customers involved in server consolidation or legacy migration projects. They help reduce the complexity, risk, and downtime typically associated with these kinds of projects. By eliminating the need to re-install software and configure complex application environments, P2V Migrations cuts down on set-up time and delivers value on your investment in VMware software in the shortest timeframe possible.
Server Consolidation Assessment
Designed to help customers understand the requirements and process involved in migrating and consolidating physical machines into a consolidated virtual machine environment. MCSA’s experienced consultants will work with the customer to analyze their existing environment and make recommendations as to what the target environment should look like. Included will be an analysis of the TCO associated with the project and server sizing requirements. MCSA will use the excellent product called PlateSpin to analyze the environment and produce highly readable consolidation reports.
