The benefits of data center consolidation are apparent; they save millions of dollars and improve the overall quality of service.  It is easy to see that too many data centers adds unnecessary costs, it chips away at manageability, increases complexity and contributes to a number of operating inefficiencies.  Realizing the economic benefits of data center consolidation can be elusive, the challenge is to circumvent the potential pitfalls that complicated the transformation process.

Data center consolidations involve much more than just moving servers or data from one location into another.  Data centers have become a conglomeration of disparate technologies running on combination of virtual platforms, physical platforms, and clustered platforms that operate an assortment of systems and access a range of data-tiers that are stored on multiple arrays from a whole host of hardware vendors.  

In addition to the...

Configuration wizard for creating a cluster provides option to setup LLT with Ethernet or UDP/IP protocol. This post provides some details on which option to choose. 

Cluster configuration wizard (VCW) detects NIC cards available for configuring LLT network links on each windows server.  Selecting NIC(s) for each server configures LLT to use Ethernet protocol.  If is important to make sure that each NIC is connected (either directly OR via a layer 2 switch) via separate network hardware for increased fault tolerance.  This is relatively easy to ascertain for Ethernet, since connection traverses a few network components. All windows servers connected to same Ethernet  are able to discover each other (ARP) dynamically.  This makes changing network configuration for cluster relatively simple. LLT traffic network overhead is low.  For large number of virtual machines hosted on a hypervisor in a datacenter, this type of...

“Best Practices” is a popular expression of the intent to manage business continuity prudently.  Best Practices are seen as a way to sidestep both the quantification of operational-risks, as well as, the objective evaluation of the cost-benefit for any proposed mitigation actions.  There are several reasons why Best Practices “Are not.” best for Business Continuity purposes.

  • It is unreasonable to assume that a best practice could optimally answer the business continuity questions for multiple organizations.  Organizations differ widely in terms of their maturity level, their technologies deployed, and their vulnerabilities. 
  • Given the wide assortment of published ‘best practices’, which of the best practices really are the ‘best’ for any particular circumstance? 
  • No organization could hope to implement all of the thousands of best practices to get it perfectly-right, and there is...
