Sovereign Wealth Fund : Challenging VMware server sprawl

Home > Case Studies > Challenging VMware server sprawl

The Challenge

A large sovereign wealth fund needed assistance alleviating data management challenges resulting from their expensive legacy infrastructure platform. The investment authority was challenged with VM server sprawl, severe power limitations and huge costs associated with the resources required to maintain a congested data centre. The existing system relied on a large complex computing environment to manage a broad spectrum of business and clinical functions. As new applications continued to be deployed, server sprawl continued and the amount of unnecessary VMs reached more than 150. IT leadership realised the data centre had reached its server threshold for capacity, power and IT support bandwidth.
The Solution

As an existing VMware customer, Constor Solutions proposed to modernise their data centre with a hyper-converged solution.

Our proposal provided a software-defined solution for their server and storage requirements. The reduced number of CPU sockets also meant they saw a reduction in their VMware licence spend. The authority saw an immediate reduction of 40% against their services bills (power and cooling), a 20% reduction on their VMware vSphere spend and an improved efficiency delivered through the automation of tasks delivered by the new HCI environment.

Responding to an infrastructure tender Constor completed a major server virtualisation and consolidation initiative collaboratively with Dell Technologies and the customer’s IT team. We replaced the legacy active/active storage environment and server environment with Dell EMC VxRail appliances. A VMware vSAN stretched cluster was implemented to cater to the active/active requirement between two London data centres. Constor Solutions host the vSAN witness on our private cloud platform to ensure a quorum. The consolidation ratio for virtualised servers increased to 37:1 (previously running at 10:1).

The Outcome

These major server initiatives were completed in five months. The authority realised a 40% reduction in data centre power consumption with a 14-month project investment recovery timeframe. The solution decreased utilisation of data centre space down to half a cabinet of computing and storage resources (20U) with room for future expansion, which changed from 3 full height cabinets (118U consumed). This also improved application performance, reduced IT staff time required for management of the servers and strengthened business continuity with full disaster recovery capabilities. The on-time completion allowed for faster more efficient access, boosting revenue and customer satisfaction.
