So we are hiring you to help pick up some slack and you see these 16 cabinets? we want them to all be virtual by the end of the year. We are moving to a new datacenter, and this will save on moving expenses.
See the 4 servers in the box there? These are you VMware ESX hosts they will move to.
After reviewing the server specs and utilization stats realize this might just work out.
After getting the virtual environment up, realize we may need one more cluster and a couple more shelves of storage.
Started P2V everything, they would have P2V me too if they could.
One cabinet to rule them all. Now for some Solarwinds Monitoring Goodness to ensure we know its all running.
