there always seems to be another conversion
VAiLPLEX allows you to better identify the migration approach that will provide the service levels and work within the acceptable downtime windows the application or workload requires
VAiLPLEX provides a unique ability to model the network capacity & bandwidth that is expected to position the workload in the new site or to the cloud as well as support the chattiness of the workload back to the original site once the workload is relocated
VAiLPLEX allows easy definition of servers & workloads based on the application or workload supported, along with servers, workstations, shared services and other components so that no surprises are encountered on move day.
VAiLPLEX provides unique insight into workloads from a port & protocol perspective that typically is only seen in much more expensive tools. Heat maps, workload verification & activity by hour is very useful when deciding on your most effective move windows.
At Sandpiper Data Systems
VAiLPLEX was built from the ground up as a data center transition discovery, planning, design, modeling and execution control management tool. No other tool on the market today was designed to specifically support data center transition projects. VAiLPLEX provides an authoritative repository of all migration, relocation or transition components ensuring you no longer reply on possibly thousands of spreadsheets that are most likely out of date.
In addition to traditional IP-based workloads, VAiLPLEX now supports SAN/Fibre Channel Analysis & Visualization for enterprise storage subsystem connected through fabrics such as Cisco MDS 9000
Sandpiper understands the difference between typical ‘Application Mapping & Discovery solutions’ versus what is really needed to support a complex data center transition project. Simply having a discovery process or tool that can inventory applications and map them to server names is clearly not enough.
VAiLPLEX now offers a batch process that can be scheduled to allow report generation & analysis to be sent to your inbox on demand or when you require them. All filters, selection and component requirements can be provided to allow custom reports to be generated with ease.
Sandpiper understands that not all workloads can be reviewed, assessed and modeled on an individual, per-server basis. The ability to ‘group’ or ‘bundle’ servers together as ‘seeds’ to create the initial analysis view is a powerful way to represent and validate more of an ‘application’ or ‘lines-of-business’ perspective.
DHL, the world largest logistics compnay, announces that it has selected Sandpiper Data Systems VAiLPLEX solution for discovery, modeling & project control for it’s Global Data Center transition project
