Devon IT, Inc., a leader in alternative desktop computing, and its integration arm, CentriServ, have announced the launch of their Enterprise Consolidation Assessment (eCon) program, in conjunction with IBM. eCon is designed specifically for large enterprises interested in the ROI and TCO benefits of server consolidation via blades servers, virtualization technologies, and client consolidation. The companies discussed the program at the recent Citrix Synergy show in Houston, Texas.

During initial pilot engagements, Devon IT and CentriServ have found that, among potential and current customers, most enterprises are unknowingly using only about seven percent of their server processing capacity and four percent of their desktop power. Companies with as few as 12 servers and 50 end users have found that performance and utilization can suffer if hardware and software aren't optimally allocated.

"Virtualization allows enterprises to utilize their servers and desktops much more efficiently," notes Anthony Falsone, president of CentriServ. "eCon helps companies understand how blade servers, virtualization, thin clients, and other components of alternative desktop computing can benefit their IT environments from a number of angles. Our experts present a detailed analysis of a company's infrastructure, using proven methodologies from IBM, Citrix, and VMware, while leveraging experience in deploying virtual servers and Devon IT thin client terminals."

How eCon Works

1. Experts from Devon IT, CentriServ, and IBM perform a high-level server and desktop "discovery" via proprietary IBM Consulting Software, noting primary function and location of each device.

2. Validate any assumptions made to date.

3. Analyze information on current performance, utilization, and configurations provided by the enterprise, and compare data to industry standards.

4. Recommend the appropriate solution for customer based on: Application servers, heterogeneous servers, email servers, high-end workstations, database servers, graphic and Web design workstations, and desktop and notebook PC sprawl.

"This initiative is extremely beneficial for enterprises and businesses because they can see in real-time exactly how virtualization, servers, and thin desktops can benefit their environments - and bottom lines," says Joe Makoid, president, Devon IT. "Cost and centralized management are among the leading benefits, as well as increased productivity, security, and business flexibility. We look forward to continuing our strong relationship with IBM with the eCon program."

Green Benefits

eCon also has green implications, as companies choosing to virtualize their IT infrastructures conserve tremendous amounts of energy and save money on associated electricity costs.

"With virtualization, companies can save up to 7,000 kilowatt hours for every software application put into a virtual machine," says Falsone. "Each server removed through virtualization saves 12.5 tons of carbon dioxide emissions, which is equivalent to taking 1.5 cars off the road."
