This compelling case study looks at how, in November of 2005, Sun's IT Operations (ITOPS) group faced lease expirations that drove the consolidation of multiple European datacenters into a single state-of-the-art facility in their Guillemont Park, U.K campus.
This consolidation was in support of their strategy to reduce their mission critical datacenter real estate by utilizing Sun's own technology. The consolidation needed to be completed quickly and achieve reductions in space and electric power consumption without the migration of large numbers of applications to new operating system versions.
Fortunately, Sun's server technology and expertise in datacenter design and operations, and services like custom Consolidation Architecture and Design Services, allowed the consolidation to be completed in less than a year, with no down time, while producing reductions in space and utility costs far more dramatic than originally planned.
