The focus of this report is performance testing of the core services of an OCS Enterprise Edition Consolidated Configuration and as deployed on an HP BladeSystem and HP StorageWorks solution. One requirement for any solution deploying more than one server in a pool is a hardware load balancer. In this solution a F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager is used.
Although hardware storage prices have come down, storage administration and software expenses still run about seven times the cost of storage hardware. Storage consolidation provides a partial solution by expanding device connectivity and reducing points of management. However, once storage is consolidated, the job is only half done. You still need a centralized, flexible method of management that masks the complexity of the storage environment and reduces administrative overhead. That’s where virtualization fits in.
Telecommunications services are becoming more and more complex. They now run over virtual network paths, less constrained by individual pieces of hardware.

Over the past ten years, IT personnel costs have risen faster than hardware and software investments. IT services have not improved process-wise and still require as much manpower, if not more, to operate now as they did in the past. As firms spend 76% of their IT budget on maintenance and support, they will naturally invest in BSM solutions that will reduce costs, enable ITIL, and provide an optimal ROI.
Bell Canada began an initiative to provide desktop solutions at reduced costs. With 8,000 call center agents, Bell Canada faced hardware attrition and rising costs. Streamlining systems, facilitating outsourcing and increasing capabilities to telecommute would reduce costs while improving service. This would require creating customized workstations for users. Bell Canada approached VMware Partner CGI Group Inc., which provides end-to-end IT and business process services, for a solution.
Increasing power demands and space limitations in the data center have begun to transition server virtualization technologies from luxuries to necessities. Server virtualization provides a path toward server consolidation that results in significant power and space savings, while also offering high availability and system portability. Today, vendors are building hardware and software platforms that can deliver virtualization solutions at near-native performance.
With the growing array of hardware, software, and systems necessary to support businesses, today more than ever, software-as-a-service or on-demand solutions offer feature-rich, real-time functionality without the burden associated with deploying, managing and supporting an in-house approach. See if it’s right for you.
