Solving Server Sprawl

A priority in the new data center was to cut through the server sprawl that had built up over time, Braico said.

"A lot of servers were added over time from IBM, Hewlett-Packard and Dell," he said. "Some were not utilized."

Falken Tire's servers were originally replaced by four IBM BladeCenter server blades, Garcia said. Those four blades replaced about 16 physical servers, and with VMware vSphere 5, were running 40 virtual servers. A fifth IBM server blade was later added.

Falken Tire has yet to take the virtual desktop step, Garcia said. "We looked at VDI, but given our growth, we're taking a breather for now."
