In 2010, the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI) launched. Its objective was to close or consolidate an estimated 40% of the government’s data centers by 2015. Since then, not only has the federal sector begun reducing their storage portfolios, but so too have state and local governments.
Today, data center consolidation is a critical IT strategy for agencies at all levels, whether due to legislation or internal drive. Condensing your storage space not only decreases your physical footprint, but also drives down costs, creates more efficiency in your systems and for your employees, and lowers your environmental impact. It also enhances your cybersecurity by minimizing lost data.
DLT Solutions partners with the top IT providers to offer state-of-the-art products and holistic solutions, combining the expertise of our partners with our own engineers and system architects, for every aspect of data center consolidation.
∇ Server Consolidation
Many agencies face “server sprawl”: a situation in which multiple, under-utilized servers take up more space and consume more resources than can be justified by their workload. Reports have indicated that many servers typically run at 15-20% of their capacity. In today’s stagnant or decreasing budget environment, many agencies are turning to server consolidation.
Server consolidation reduces the number of physical servers and maximizes the efficiency of your remaining ones, saving you money and resources. To take full advantage of data center consolidation, we recommend server virtualization.
∇ Application Consolidation
Agencies face a growing number of applications, as new software is added each year to their IT portfolio, through either procurement or in-house development. Many IT managers face hundreds, sometimes thousands, of applications they must supervise. With cybersecurity a growing concern, having unmanaged legacy software is a security risk.
∇ Storage Consolidation
With “Big Data” on the horizon, many agencies are increasing their storage availability. However, as more on-premise DAS, NAS, and SAN storage is added, IT departments are finding it more difficult to manage them across the organization, not only increasing inefficiencies, but also increasing the risk of a cyber attack.
Storage consolidation eliminates those concerns by
centralizing and standardizing your data. Storage consolidation allows you to
achieve scalability, flexibility, and performance from a manageable single system
without compromising your data’s security.
