First Look <> Challenge

Q) How well do you understand the detailed health, capabilities, and opportunities for optimization of your current network, server and storage environments? Q) Are you confident the technology lifecycle you are following is the right one long term for not only your business but where the rest of the industry is heading? Q) Do you have access to and experience with the proper assessment tools, processes, technologies and partnerships to enable you to formulate solution options and a roadmap?


Gartner - “Through 2013, more than 70% of infrastructure vendors will offer converged infrastructure (vertically integrated) solutions.”

IDC – “..hypervisor wars will end in 2010 and converged infrastructure platforms will take off”

The iVision approach to answering these questions is to follow a proven process. • •

First - We leverage automated data collection tools and iVision processes to gather empirical data about your current environment’s compute, network, storage and virtualization health. Next - We map your business objectives, the results of the assessment, and iVision best practice experience to collaborate with you through solution options and we develop a roadmap to reduce complexity and to converge your infrastructure. This provides a phased plan, as well an understanding of the costs of the roadmap.

ZDNet – “Converged infrastructure approach paves the way for improved data center productivity”
