Faced with expanding IT requirements and diminishing operational budgets, federal enterprises need to adopt new data center infrastructure management processes in order to achieve business goals. M2 can recommend solutions for efficiency improvements and cost reductions that:

  • Simplify management practices
  • Improve reliability
  • Enable informed decision-making
  • Minimize energy consumption
  • Facilitate cooperation across siloed organizations.

Effective data center optimization solution includes:

  1. Server Virtualization - the method of running multiple independent virtual operating systems on a single computer. This allows users to maximize physical resources and take best advantage of their hardware investment.
  2. Blade Servers - the processing power of a traditional server, housed with other blade servers in a chassis that shares the power, cooling, connectivity and management of each server.
  3. Data Storage Management - delivers data center optimization by consolidating and centralizing an organization’s data into more manageable and predictable data stores.
  4. Power and Cooling Management System Design - reduce costs and limit downtime. In a dense server environment, placing your data centers cooling mechanisms near equipment generating the most heat will ensure your systems are running at optimized levels. Also, right-sizing power requirements can help maximize your hardware lifecycle.

HP has been the leader in Blade technology for over five years with a 53% of the worldwide marketshare. M2s team includes certified specialists that have been engaged by many federal entities to successfully guide them through the process:

  1. Discovery session and consulting to understand business goals, requirements and budget.
  2. Assessment review of existing environment and definition of project requirements.
  3. Detailed vendor evaluations, recommendations, future design and proof of concept.
  4. Procurement, configuration and deployment of the final solution.
  5. Ongoing product lifecycle support.
