1 Ready, steady... go virtualization It s a quick and easy step to lower costs with HP and Microsoft
2 Ready steady You ve waited. You ve prepared. Now it s time to go! Virtualization is the green light to cutting costs We have been thinking about taking the virtualization step for sometime, many small and midsize businesses tell us. For good reason, virtualization is the biggest step you can take to cutting costs. The first and most obvious benefit is you are now dealing with fewer physical machines. You can assign a number of virtual machines to every physical machine. Depending on your individual case, it can be as high as nine virtual instances to one physical. Go! Virtualization benefits Reduce physical space Reduce hardware costs Reduce power consumption and cooling Rapidly deploy a new system without setting up the hardware Manage more easily So you have much lower power consumption and reduced cooling costs. In some business cases, for every dollar spent on hardware, you are spending eight more on maintenance. Fewer physical machines mean fewer physical components that need power and cooling along with fewer parts. This means less maintenance is needed. Furthermore, a virtual machine does not have to be purchased and assembled, saving you a lot of time on deployment. The summary of all these (initial) savings: Virtualization saves you time and money. If you want to judge for yourself, check out our ROI calculator and then discover why so many businesses are saying, Yes, we are ready to Go!

6 Your first step, talking to your Frontline Partner We lead the way with three scenarios We understand that your business is unique. Your Frontline Partners can offer you the customized solution that you need, for your level of expertise, from big to small. Have a look at our three scenarios, based on successful projects with unique companies, and see for yourself how virtualization is a Go for everyone. Go Scenario 1... a small business takes the step We purchase new servers every three years, so we are now saving on hardware, and license costs. Our rent is at a premium so the space and electricity savings are a big factor. The Hyper-V interface was really easy to use: just connect and you have a virtual server! We thought virtualization was for big business, but discovered it s easy enough for us. Joan B., IT Administrator Human Resources and Personnel Agency The requirements A virtual solution for mail, file and specialized application servers, with simple setup and management. Before After Mail File SQL VM 2 Mail server VM 3 File server VM 4 SQL Server Windows Server 2008 R2 Hypervisor 3 servers VM = Virtual machine DL380 G6 6 Our recommended solution The HP ProLiant DL380 G6 server and HP StorageWorks 2000 Modular Smart Array (MSA2000). Equipped with Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition with Hyper-V and HP Care Pack Services.
7 The agency has three physical machines: a mail server, a server for Microsoft SQL Server and a file server. Since they are different types of applications with different operating systems, they need to be kept separate. Their Frontline Partner recommended the HP ProLiant DL380 G6 server running Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition with Hyper-V and the HP StorageWorks 2000 Modular Smart Array (MSA2000). This allows the company to run three separate virtual machines on the same hardware with plenty of space. Joan was pleased with performance. The database actually sped up, as it had access to more disk space and processor power. The Frontline Partner (skilled in both HP and Microsoft technologies) commented: Once we had shown the owner and CEO the ROI and TCO, he was convinced. We were confident with the simplicity of the Hyper-V interface that Joan with her experience in Windows Server 2008 R2 would be up and running in a short space of time. Key benefits Efficient hardware utilization: Instead of having three physical machines, there is now one. Platform independence: Microsoft Hyper-V allows multiple versions of operating systems to be run on the latest hardware options. Uncomplicated data storage: HP s MSA2000 platform is an easy-to-manage storage solution that works perfectly with HP ProLiant and Hyper-V. Example configuration HP ProLiant DL380 G6 server powered by Intel Xeon Processor 5500 series HP StorageWorks MSA2000 Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 SP2 Enterprise Edition with Hyper-V The following management software solutions are available for virtualization environments: HP ProLiant Server and BladeSystem Management Packs for Microsoft System Center Essentials 2007 Microsoft System Center Essentials 2007 HP Integrated Lights-Out 2 Advanced HP Care Pack Services Installation and Startup for ProLiant DL380 Server Installation and Startup for MSA2000 HP Support Plus 24 for the ProLiant DL380 (this includes 3 years, 24x7 4-hour response, onsite for Hardware and 3 years, 24x7 2-hour response Telephone Software Support) 3 years, 24x7 4-hour response, onsite Hardware support for the MSA2000 7
8 Go Scenario 2... a midsize retail business discovers a green light for flexibility and low costs We are stuffed to the seams; a new sales system will mean another 12 servers, which will overload the datacenter and the staff. If our servers fail, cash registers stop, our customers walk away and we lose money. It turned out to be a painless process; virtualization is really just common sense. Richard C., IT Manager Richard turned to his Frontline Partner, who recommended HP ProLiant and Hyper-V for his solution. Many of our current servers were only running at 10 30% utilization, so we were able to have an average of five virtual machines to one physical. This really solved our space problems, he reports. Richard was also able to deploy the sales system ahead of time and below budget. Cutting out the hardware purchasing and setup dramatically improved the timelines; with a bit of practice a virtual machine only took an hour to set up, compared to weeks for every new physical machine. The biggest benefit for him is in terms of reliability, vital to his company. If a physical machine fails, it can take up to two days to repair, whereas here we can move the workload to a different physical machine in less than thirty minutes. Typical requirements of the small to midsize scenario More efficient utilization of space and staff resources Simplified management of the physical and virtual infrastructure Quick migration of virtual machines to enable fast response to business requirements Rapid deployment of virtual machines from development to production Backup Hardware Provisioning Disaster Recovery Workload Provisioning Monitoring Patching 8
9 Our recommended solution The new powerful HP ProLiant G6 servers running Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V. Example configuration The MSA2000 family of storage products. These can help reduce costs in a virtualization environment. HP and Microsoft management tools. HP Insight Control with Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager Workgroup Edition or Microsoft System Center Server Management Suite Enterprise with HP Integrated Lights- Out 2 Advanced. Training for HP technologies. Training is essential. It not only improves day-to-day operations, but reduces the number one risk facing IT managers: unplanned downtime. Key benefits Reduced server count: Microsoft Hyper-V allows much more efficient and effective utilization of hardware resources. Lower energy costs: Intel Intelligent Power Technology reduces server idle power consumption by as much as 50% compared to the previous generation of twosocket server processors.** Simplified management: Virtual machines can also be centrally managed in heterogeneous virtualization environments. Live Migration: Capabilities that provides dynamic allocation of resources and higher levels of availability. HP BladeSystem c3000 enclosure HP ProLiant BL460c G6 server blade powered by Intel Xeon Processor 5500 series HP StorageWorks MSA2000 Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 SP2 Enterprise Edition with Hyper-V The following management software solutions are available for virtualization environments: HP ProLiant Server and BladeSystem Management Packs for Microsoft System Center Essentials 2007 Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 Microsoft System Center Essentials 2007 HP Integrated Lights-Out 2 Advanced HP Care Pack Services Installation and Startup for HP BladeSystem Installation and Startup for MSA2000 HP Support Plus 24 for the HP BladeSystem (this includes 3 years, 24x7 4-hour response, onsite for Hardware and 3 years, 24x7 2-hour response Telephone Software Support) 3 years, 24x7 4-hour response, onsite Hardware support for the MSA2000 9
10 Go Scenario 3... a large organization with mission-critical responsibilities Now we manage all our servers from one console, this has been a huge help over such a big campus. Quick migration of virtual machines from one host to another solves all our load balancing problems. We were able to deploy clustered solutions; with virtual servers, clustering becomes really easy. Our goal is to cut our server population by 60%, thereby slashing costs, and power consumption. John D., Head of IT catering to hundreds of students we are also responsible for keeping mission-critical servers in research laboratories running. An important consideration was not to have to re-train tier 2 staff on different interfaces. The ability to manage physical and virtual machines from a single user interface as well as remote management was a clincher. The Microsoft System Center Server Management with the HP tools, especially with HP Integrated Lights-Out 2 Advanced, does everything we need. Flexibility was vital. We experience huge fluctuations in demand, especially during term time; now we can rapidly provision new virtual machines and adjust our performance as we need it. We have radically cut down our server deployment time. He was especially impressed with the HP LeftHand P4000 SAN Solution: It gave us the thin provisioning capabilities we needed, matches the Hyper-V flexibility, and is now an essential part of our infrastructure. Typical demands from a large-scale scenario Mission-critical environment Powerful system management tools and remote management capabilities Storage infrastructure that will allow real-time migration of virtual machines The head of IT at a large higher education institution comments: We have a heterogeneous IT structure Backup Hardware Provisioning Disaster Recovery Workload Provisioning Monitoring Patching 10
