1 Tony Kenny, IT Manager, Beaumont Hospital SERVER CONSOLIDATION AT BEAUMONT HOSPITAL BASED ON IBM HARDWARE AND VMWARE

2 HISTORICAL BACKGROUND LIST OF SERVERS RED HAT ADVANCED SERVER45 WINDOWS SERVERS (NT/2000)20 NOVELLE 1 SOLARIS 9 1 HP-UX 1 HP

3 SERVERSSERVERS

4 HISTORICAL BACKGROUND GROWING DEMANDS LEGACY INHERITANCE ONE BOX / ONE APPLICATION MAZE OF BOXES DIFFERENT O/S VERSIONS WINDOWS NT LINUX REDHAT 8 REDHAT 9 REDHAT A/S RED HAT E/S

5 HISTORICAL BACKGROUND AGE PROFILE OF SERVERS < 7 yrs yrs yrs yrs yr 4 70 RELIABILITY SUPPORT CONTRACTS MANAGABILITY DIY ENGINEERING CULTURE

6 HISTORICAL BACKGROUND MANAGEMENT HIGHLY COMPLEX ENVIRONMENT HIGHLY COMPLEX ENVIRONMENT HIGHLY VOLATILE HIGHLY VOLATILE HIGHLY CONFUSING HIGHLY CONFUSING GENIUS SYNDROME GENIUS SYNDROME DYNAMIC SOFTWARE ENVIRONMENT DYNAMIC SOFTWARE ENVIRONMENTWINDOWSLINUX MANY NEW PRODUCTS

7 SO WHAT DID WE DO X445 ESS (6TB) PRODUCTION DS 4100 (9 TB) DISASTERRECOVERY THEN Applications Oracle Database Applications Test Environment

8 NDS Epilepsy PIPE ClinicalNotes Theatre BHIS RAD LAB HR Billing Finance IT ALIGNMENT

9 CONSOLIDATION OPTIONS NEW X86 SERVERS BLADES MULTI-CPU NUMA SERVERS SOPHISTICATED MEMORY SHARING REDUNDANCY LITTLE ENOUGH APPARENT DIFFERENCE …. BUT…. MAINFRAME FOCUS RELIABILITY DISCIPLINE MANAGEMENT

10 DISASTER RECOVERY STORAGE BASED PPRC ESS 1ESS 2 COMPLEX SET UP INVISIBLE TO OPS TEAM STILL IN SETUP/TEST MODE

11 DISASTER RECOVERY Network Star Topology CISCO 2900 Redundancy in network CICSO Infrastructure edge core DVE - June 2006

12 DISASTER RECOVERY FAILOVER SCRIPTING STRESS TESTING IP ADDRESS SWITCHOVER STILL IN DEVELOPMENT TARGET Q BHMATER AMNCHSJHSVH

13 VM WARE CONFIGURATION SET UP 3 X445 / 8 CPU / 50GB RAM 30 VIRTUAL SERVERS DYNAMIC RESOURCE ALLOCATION MIXED O/S ENVIRONMENT BALANCED NETWORK CONNECTIONS DUAL HBA SAN LINKS

14 VM WARE SET UP NEW CONCEPT FOR US EAGER TO GET TO GRIPS SELF TEACHING FORMAL TRAINING SOME REWORK REQUIRED RELATIVELY STRAIGHT FORWARD TO SET UP

15 VM WARE SET UP GOOD SUPPORT CENTRE (24X7) VERSION UPGRADES DONE (2.1 -> 2.5) LITTLE USE MADE OF ADVANCED FEATURES VMOTION ? VSAN ?

16 VM WARE ISSUES SOME APPLICATION VENDOR PUSH BACK RESOURCE POOLING OVER DIFFERENT MACHINES NEED FOR ADDITIONAL SKILLS TO IMPROVE SYSTEM MANAGEMENT DIFFICULT TO DIRECTLY MEASURE PERFORMANCE/ RESOURCE LODING

17 VM WARE ISSUES DISASTER RECOVERY ONE BIG DRAWBACK - MACHINE FAILURE (31/12) NO SHARED CONFIGURATION 12 HOURS DOWNTIME CAUGHT NAPPING

18 VM WARE ISSUES SYSTEM MANAGEMENT - BIG CHANGE CONFIGURATION CONTROL CHANGE CONTROL PROCESS DYNAMIC RESOURCE ALLOCATION DISTINCT TEST ENVIRONMENT

19 VM WARE ISSUES DR NOW IN PLACE MULTI BOX MANAGEMENT ADDITIONAL TUNING / PERFORMANCE TRAINING INTEGRATE WITH VSAN MANAGEMENT

20 VM WARE ISSUES SERVER ROOM SPACE SERVER ARCHEOLOGY CONVOLUTED PATCH UP PATHS DISPARATE O/S RELEASES LACK OF SOP REBOOT CURE ALL

21 WHAT WE GOT UPGRADED HOSPITAL NETWORK FAST …. SEGMENTED …. SECURE ….

22 STRATEGIC INTENT LIFESUPPORT CAREDELIVERY CLINICALSUPPORT ADMINISTRATIVE Need for reliability Response time CURRENTSTATUS HP 3000

23 STRATEGIC INTENT VIRTUALISE VIRTUALISE MODULARISE MODULARISE POWER MANAGE x POWER MANAGE x SYSTEMATISE SYSTEMATISE SERVER INFRASTRUCTURE

24 WHAT I WANT DATA CENTRE MANAGEMENT RESOURCE BALANCING SKILL SET TRANSFER CREDIBLE ROLL OUT SCHEDULE RELIABILITY - SERVICE DELIVERY - SUPPORT - COMMNICATION LITE PROJECT MANAGEMENT

25 PAYBACK Once OffRecurring PA Investment Premium50,000 Training Cost39,000 Server Maintenance(48,000) Saving Staff Redeployment (1)(39,000) Additional Storage50,000_______ 139,00087,000 Payback19 months BUT ROI of Infrastructure SLA (?) Uptime (?) Load balancing (?) Future Expansion (?)
