Implementing and Expanding a Virtualized Environment

In 2005, Intel IT began planning, engineering, and implementing virtualized business computing production environment as part of our overall center strategy. We’re currently accelerating virtualization adoption for general purpose applications, with a goal of virtualizing 70 to 80 percent of our office and enterprise environments within two years.

We started by standardizing our virtualization infrastructure architecture using proven technology and measuring return on investment (ROI). From the outset, we have taken a cautious approach—conducting a thorough consolidation and ROI analysis; carefully evaluating resource utilization, available platforms, and risk factors; developing a comprehensive architecture design including hosts, storage, backup and restore (BAR), networking, and management; and addressing necessary business process changes. Our initial ramp focused wholly on older servers running non-mission-critical applications.

To date, we have virtualized 10 to 20 percent of the servers in our office and enterprise environments. This effort has yielded benefits that include automated deployment, faster recovery, and an average server consolidation ratio of 10:1 with calculated available capacity of 15:1. This has helped our organization lower costs, increase agility, and reduce energy consumption.

By integrating two-socket servers based on the Intel® Xeon® processor 5500 series, we see opportunities to more than double our consolidation ratios up to 20:1 based on internal benchmark and performance tests.
