VMware / Virtualization Cluster Planning Process and Service

Being able to plan for the future growth of your VMware or other virtualization environment is vitally important - how much headroom do you have in your cluster today and how many more virtual machines (VMs) will your cluster support going forward? The ability to communicate in these simple terms to project and business management is crucial.

VMware / Virtualization Cluster Planning Process and Service

Metron has built a process that you can use in your own organization - regardless if you are currently an athene® client. The process includes assessing your existing environment, understanding your future plans, and calculating the capacity recommendations in the number of VMs the existing cluster(s) will support.

We offer a web-based or onsite service to help quickly put this process in place and generate fast results. The web-based service consists of a half-day of guidance from a Metron consultant as he builds the process for your environment and transfers that knowledge to you. The on-site service consists of a full day of a Metron consultant working side-by-side to build the process and evaluate a few clusters in your environment (time permitting), while providing knowledge transfer.

Gap Analysis

Gap Analysis
Stakeholders need confidence that expenditure in the business is being used to best effect. Ensuring that processes and procedures align with industry good practices is a way to provide that confidence.

ITIL® is the leading approach for good practice for management of IT infrastructure and its interaction with the business. Implementing what is appropriate for your organization from within those guidelines is an effective means of justifying to stakeholders that your environment is being managed in line with or better than industry expectations.

Our Gap Analysis service helps define an organization’s understanding of where it is, where it should be, and how to get there.
