IT Consolidation and Virtualization

IT Consolidate


Server Consolidation


Involves reducing TCO in the data center by consolidating multiple physical machines into virtual machines with higher utilization. There are significant cost benefits to consolidating physical machines with low utilization to multiple virtual machines running on fewer servers.

Economics of Data Center Convergence

Tangible benefits

  • 50-70% savings on overall IT costs by consolidating their resource pools
  • Reduce capital costs by requiring less hardware and lowering operational costs while increasing server to admin ratio
  • 300 percent growth in capacity in 60 percent less space than existing data centers
  • Reduce hardware and operating costs by as much as 50% and energy costs by 80%, saving more than $3,000 per year for every server workload virtualized
  • Increase utilization of existing hardware from 5-15% up to 80%
  • Reduce hardware requirements by a 10:1
  • Accelerate provisioning time by 50-70%Intangible benefits
  • More Control and Flexibility in the Datacenter
  • Decrease downtime and improve reliability with business continuity and built-in data disaster recovery
  • Deliver IT services on-demand now and in the future, independent of hardware, OS, application or infrastructure providers
  • Eliminate many repetitive configuration and maintenance tasks
  • “Greener” approach to computing by minimizing power consumption by powering and cooling fewer servers and delivering highly available machines
  • Power to Manage Virtual Infrastructure from a Single Point of Control
  • Highest availability and performance of Applications



interior3With average server and storage utilization rates ranging between 5-15%, the majority of medium sized businesses computing capacity and investment is laying fallow. Virtualization helps to reclaim this unused capacity by allowing application workloads to be managed independent of host hardware, so multiple applications can share a single, physical server. Workloads can be moved from one host to another to meet peaks and valleys in application usage, averting expensive slowdowns, outages and downtime. Using virtualization enables IT to manage their infrastructure as a pool of resources, rather than a collection of physical devices, increasing utilization well over 70%, helping them improve their ROI and deliver better support and services to the business.


Stranded computing capacity has been created by IT managers addressing business growth by adding new servers, storage, or printers as needs arise. This unplanned growth is leaving many midsize businesses that rely on the server room or data center to run their business with a fragmented infrastructure that is difficult and expensive to manage, house and power. By upgrading to newer, more powerful technology, they can reduce the amount of hardware in the server room AND actually increase service capacity. The result is a reconciled, planned structure, easier and cheaper to manage, house and power. Plus they can free up time and money to be allocated back into the business.


Our Company

We've seen a lot in our 30+ years.

Since 1985, Ocean Computer Group has grown and transitioned right along with the IT industry. We started off selling refurbished IBM midrange systems, and moved on to the early days of ethernet networks and PCs. Today we're offering the newest virtualization, backup and recovery, and cloud computing solutions available on the market.

But while times and technology have changed, our core values and objectives have not.
