Arraya Insights | November 24, 2014
Faster problem resolution, a more-streamlined IT environment. Those are the kinds of things that make all IT leaders stand up and take notice. Something else that’s bound to catch their eye, especially in today’s world of tight budgets, the word free.
Industry-leading cloud and virtualization provider VMware is putting its money where its mouth is and offering a free 30-day Optimization Assessment to any vSphere customer. According to VMware’s estimates, 9 out of every 10 virtual machines (VM) have been over-provisioned. Its goal in offering the free assessment is to let customers see for themselves exactly how vCenter Operations Management can minimize risk and make those VMs more agile.
Here’s how the assessment works: Customers will receive either VMware vSphere with Operations Management or VMware vRealize Operations (formerly VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite) to evaluate free for 30 days. During that time, Arraya Solutions will collect and analyze the data generated by the customer’s systems. Then, after the trial period has ended, the customer will receive a 20+ page Optimization Assessment Report. This report will contain all of Arraya’s findings on their current system and recommendations for possible improvements. This free report will provide customers more visibility into – and more control of – their cloud environments. That could lead a more efficient, secure and healthy virtual environment.
Customers who’ve undergone this assessment have been able to:
- Reduce the time it takes to resolve a problem by 26%
- Spot over-provisioned VMs and cut their overall IT administrative expenses
- Save up to 30% on hardware cost by increasing capacity utilization
- Slash application downtime by 36%, and
- More easily predict and respond to future business needs.
Arraya’s experienced and knowledgeable VMware team will handle every step of the process, from installing Operations Management all the way through presenting your company with its personalized assessment report. The free trial of VMware’s Operations Management can be installed remotely through a WebEx connection, and Arraya’s team can have Operations Management up and running in only about an hour or two, making the process easy and headache-free.
