 Our pragmatic approach for
optimum capacity utilization

What’s the idea?
 Our approach is:
 A search for the IT infrastructure best efficiency
 Based on Lean and 6-Sigma industry methods
 A balance between “Do more with less” and “Assurance of future
sustainability”
 An on-going process, not a one time project
And it will
Show you how to optimize utilization of your IT assets
 Identify IT assets you can reclaim
Proactively make you aware of future IT resources organic
needs


Increased efficiency
Cost savings resulting in more economic provisioning of IT services
Deferred expenditure
Elimination of expensive panic buying
Better and more informed acquisition of IT resources
Less need for reactive support

Our 2-phase approach to improve efficiency
 Identify servers under-utilized - Waste
 See how your IT is being used – Median
 Establish operational utilization levels – Goals
Continuous
Improvement
Based
on
LEAN
 Aim at power reserve targets - Improvement
6-Sigma
 Assess new situation – measure improvement

Target levels of utilization
Recommendation
for improvement
 Servers that can be reclaimed
 Servers for consolidation - virtualization
 Servers over-utilized

Phase 2: Tuning for best utilization
 Principles
 Servers don’t run at 100% capacity and should not.
 You want to increase resource utilization close to the target operational levels
 And leave just enough power reserve to prevent resource contention

Customer Case
Large European
Investment Bank
Capacity management to discover
and exploit the hidden value of
unused resources
© ORSYP 2011 • Confidential
11
Key Facts
 Large European
Investment Banks using
the Data Synapse platform
 Complex grid-computing
infrastructure calculating
bond rate position &
derivatives
 Growth rate of 800 servers
per year to accommodate
calculation
© ORSYP 2011 • Confidential
12
Challenges
 Rapidly growing infrastructure,
yet stagnating performance
 Inability to visualize utilization
of existing resources
 Unexplainable saturation &
underutilization levels
throughout the grid
© ORSYP 2011 • Confidential
13
Benefits
 50% increase in calculation rate
per server
 Reduce hardware investments
by 45%
 Improve capacity utilization &
exploit existing resources
 Global visibility of the grid, its
components, and how they are
used by the different business :
next step -> chargeback
