Server consolidation services from IntegriTech help design, deploy and manage an IT infrastructure needing fewer servers while helping to reduce costs and improve flexibility.
- Reduces the number of servers in an infrastructure to help lower costs

- Typically reduces a client's TCO by 30% to 70%
Even your best-laid IT infrastructure plans can be undermined by unexpected growth or change. When data center performance is threatened, the short-term solution often is to simply add more servers. If unchecked, this approach can result in server sprawl - too many servers, too many platforms and too many resources needed to support them. This complexity increases your costs and limits your business flexibility.
Server consolidation can help you optimize your investments in infrastructure by reducing the number of servers required to support your applications. The offering includes assessment, design, strategy, planning, implementation and testing services built on IBM's extensive server product offerings and proven track record for designing, deploying and managing data center environments.
Server consolidation services draw on a center of competency - highly skilled professionals whose sole focus is developing and executing consolidation best practices. IntegriTech can help you reduce the number of servers in your environment and improve the performance and utilization of those that remain.
Optimization begins with consolidation. Server consolidation can provide a foundation for implementing more advanced optimization initiatives, such as virtualization and dynamic system provisioning.
With a consolidated server environment, you can potentially reduce costs in several areas:
- Systems administration and support
- Site and facilities
- End-user support
- Application deployment
In addition to the potential cost savings, there are significant strategic advantages to creating a flexible IT environment that can support changing business demands. Your IT resources can be better aligned with business objectives, and your IT department can be more productive and ready to respond to new initiatives more quickly.
