- Consolidation Discovery and Analysis Tool (CDAT) enables companies to improve information
[Cincinnati, OH. – June 1, 2009] – NextStep Networking, a full-service Information Technology company, has received certification from IBM for the IT Optimization CDAT (Consolidation Discovery and Analysis Tool). First introduced in 2001, this detailed discovery process helps identify untapped utilization and hidden servers across a client's network, and provides recommendations on how to consolidate and virtualize x86 resources most effectively, saving customers up to 60 percent in IT costs while quadrupling a client's computing utilization.
"By executing IBM’s proven discovery process, NextStep Networking will provide a detailed analysis of your company’s server and workstation consolidation opportunities," said Andrew Johnson, Vice President, NextStep Networking. "By enabling our experienced team of certified engineers to complete your consolidation analysis, NextStep Networking will enable our clients to realize and provide a solid return on investment (ROI) while reducing overall IT expenses. Ultimately, saving your company energy, space, time, and money!”
“CDAT identifies which servers could be scaled to blade servers or IBM's PowerPC-based servers, and which should not be consolidated,” said Rich Lechner, IBM's vice president of IT Optimization. “For instance, he said a server that is highly utilized for 20 percent to 30 percent of the time with a peak utilization rate of over 80 percent a couple times a day or week probably would not be flagged for consolidation.”
