Virtualization project is not only a modern trend but also a challenging expensive project that has the strategy-important business impact. It may bring both substantial cost savings and business continuity advantages with optimized IT investments. With Blue Beacon you will follow hassle-free virtualization roadmap to achieve information technology domination in building business competitive advantages.

Blue Beacon consultants assist with all the aspects of virtualization from comprehensive IT infrastructure assessment and gap analysis, infrastructure planning and design, financial analysis (including licensing optimization), implementation and migration to ongoing management and maintenance using Microsoft, VMware, Parallels, and Sun virtualization solutions.

Decision to move to virtual environments is based on the thorough investigation of the current infrastructure. On this stage we assist you with evaluation of your running system as a virtualization platform and find niches for operational costs optimization by the means of virtualization.

Assessment and planning phase of a migration project is crucial for its success and covers the following aspects:

  • designing of network architecture ready for virtualization.
  • backup and recovery.
  • network and server power backup.
  • virtualization roadmap development (including testing piece virtualization, planning of services interruption, licensing package optimization, monitoring and virtualization management tools implementation, and others).

Based on the project plan Blue Beacon specialists can perform full-cycle migration including but not limited to:

  • creating of virtual data centers on host servers;
  • a physical-to-virtual and virtual-to-virtual server migration (based on VMware, Microsoft, Xen Server or Virtual Iron platforms);
  • special solutions for distributed servers consolidation (mail servers, database servers), hot and cold conversion;
  • VM monitoring;
  • VM optimization;
  • VM backup and restore mechanisms.

  • Requirements gathering
  • High-level architecture development
  • Knowledge transfer

  • Detailed design
  • Test, staging and validation plan
  • Product acquisition and implementation plan
  • Rollout and migration plan

Optimization of information systems’ performance by optimization of virtual and physical servers’ structure allows to improve utility rate of the current infrastructure.

  • VM storage optimization. The automated tracking process of over-allocated and possible outages VM storage enables clients to manage their existing storage more efficiently. After potential storage savings are estimated it’s time for rightsizing and fixing VMs which are running out of storage.
  • Optimizing VM performance. With the virtual machine performance going up, more virtual machines can be squeezed onto a host server, thereby achieving higher virtual machine density.
  • VM rightsizing automation. To reach better performance, the custom virtual appliance initiates a series of virtual machine reconfigurations (rightsizing) which continuously adjust to dynamic virtual infrastructure conditions.
