You have been tasked with migrating an existing physical server infrastructure to a virtualized
An initial analysis of the physical infrastructure has identified the serversthat can be migrated to
virtual machines and run on Hypervisors.
You are required to come up with a design that will facilitate the migration to a virtual infrastructure.
To do this you need to identify the following:
1. The number of Hypervisors required:
i. To run the virtual machines without any spare capacity
ii. To run the virtual machines with 40% spare capacity
iii. To provide High Availability for all virtual machines 25 Marks
2. The amount of memory (RAM) consolidation that can be safely achieved. Then, use this to
calculate how much memory will be required for each Hypervisor. 10 Marks
3. The cost savings in terms of the power required to run the Hypervisors versus the physical
servers over a year(Given that each server consumes 500w of power, requires 500w of
cooling, and electrical power costs 10c per kilowatt-hour). 15 Marks
4. The requirements for the shared storage environment.
This involves identifying:
i. The number of hard disks required to store the virtual machine files
ii. How the virtual machine files can be protected against disk failure
iii. The number of hard disks after the protection mechanism has been implemented
iv. The cost of the overall shared storage solution 25 Marks
5. A sample diagram of the proposed infrastructure (include Hypervisors, shared storage and
network infrastructure). As well as this you should give a detailed description of the
componentsshown in the diagram
