Virtualization

Conceras understands that CIOs face greater demands for IT services, but are also constrained with tighter budgets and cannot afford to add a new server or storage system for every new application workload. Conceras’ server and storage virtualization solutions help organizations optimize IT resources and data center utilities. With our virtualization solutions, our clients reduce the number of servers, storage, desktop, and network devices to decrease complexity and make IT management simpler. Our services support the planning, analysis, design, migration, and ongoing operations and maintenance on all leading hypervisor architectures.

Our Virtualization solutions provide:

  • Lower total cost of ownership
  • Selection of best-of-breed, hypervisor-agnostic solutions
  • Reduced power, cooling and floor space requirements
  • Enabling of rapid, secure provisioning of new gold image virtual systems and new workloads
  • Assessment, design, and implementation services
  • Leveraging advanced application and data migration tools to create a parallel path for application cutover, requiring minimal code changes and downtime
  • Rapidly test and simulate third party applications
  • Reduced infrastructure complexity
  • Capacity planning and performance testing
  • Easier integration of mixed environments
  • Leveraging of leading virtualization total lifecycle management platforms designed to meet current and emerging challenges

Sun Solaris to Linux Migrations

Since Oracle purchased Sun Microsystems, the future viability of Sun Solaris is in question. Many Federal Government customers are performing cost analysis of maintaining a current Sun SPARC hardware environment versus investing in newer, horizontally scaled, lower cost, commodity architecture. Conceras guides clients through the analysis of requirements and technical aspects of new system technologies.

If you are considering a Solaris to Linux migration, Conceras has the expertise, past performance, and resources to provide comprehensive services, from design concepts to implementation strategies on a broad range of hardware and software application platforms. Conceras will tune and optimize your Linux environments for maximum workload performance, while securing your Linux environments to meet the most stringent Certification and Accreditation (C&A) security requirements.

Our Sun Solaris to Linux Migration solutions provide:

  • Scaled down configurations for hosts
  • Security best practices and C&A guidelines
  • Reduced administrative burden, and lowered deployment and configuration costs
  • Scalable architectures so the organization can grow and adapt to change
  • Red Hat Satellite, to automate OS deployments, application deployments, software, and security packages – managed from a centralized location
  • Planned cutover of the mission applications to minimize downtime
  • Secure provisioning with KickStarts and advanced custom scripting
  • Standard Operating Procedures and baselines
  • Server clustering
  • Several technology suites that streamline and automate lifecycle management and centralized auditing
