Many forward-thinking organizations are moving toward server virtualization to reduce costs, improve service levels and create a more resilient IT infrastructure, but lack adequate real-world experience to create an effective solution. IBM Implementation Services for System x™ - ServicePac® for VMware Infrastructure proof of concept provides hands-on education in your own environment, so you can more fully understand the advantages and challenges of virtualization while minimizing risk.
Helping you evaluate the benefits of server virtualization for your enterprise
To thrive in a challenging marketplace, many organizations recognize that the IT infrastructure must be optimized to maximize resource utilization, enhance resiliency and reduce management costs. The legacy "one-server-per-application" approach is increasingly expensive and inefficient for most organizations. By enabling you to consolidate, view, and flexibly manage your computing resources-without being restricted by physical implementation, location or external packaging-virtualization can help you achieve your goals.
While its benefits are compelling, seasoned IT professionals know that transitioning to a virtualized solution can be complex and costly, requiring new tools, skills and expertise. By providing critical knowledge transfer onsite, IBM Implementation Services for System x™ - ServicePac® for VMware Infrastructure proof of concept helps you learn to quickly implement, monitor and modify a small-scale server virtualization solution in your own environment. Five days of onsite customized training sessions and hands-on workshops provide you with training on key virtualization concepts and essential VMware Infrastructure products-all while helping you to prioritize capabilities for your environment.
