Nth Generation’s Server Consolidation solutions help organizations simplify their IT infrastructures, accelerate growth, reduce costs and improve performance.
Nth’s clients gain control of their IT infrastructures by eliminating over-provisioned silos of technology to create a consolidated yet flexible infrastructure that can adapt to changing business needs.
Nth’s Server Consolidation solutions:
• Reduce the cost, time and effort required to manage overly complex infrastructures
• Allow IT staffs to focus on innovation rather than supporting the infrastructure
• Reduce downtime with security, high availability and disaster recovery capabilities
• Improve service levels by delivering leading compute performance

From Virtualization Appraisals to project implementation and post-engagement support, Nth brings decades of IT consolidation experience to ensure that your organization’s project delivers on the promise of IT consolidation.
Virtualization Appraisals & TCO Analysis
Server consolidation starts with an Nth Generation Virtualization Appraisal to understand the current inventory of servers, their workload and utilization. Nth’s certified Engineers then identify opportunities for consolidation, model a consolidation plan utilizing virtualization and conduct a total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis. Nth’s Virtualization Appraisals identify the potential savings that can be generated from consolidating an existing physical IT infrastructure into a virtual infrastructure
Physical-to-Virtual (“P2V”) Jumpstarts
Nth Generation’s P2V Jumpstarts quickly and efficiently expose your staff to a proven methodology to move and consolidate existing physical servers into virtual machines. P2V Migrations are ideal for customers involved in server consolidation or legacy migration projects when recreating existing servers is not practical. Nth’s certified Engineers help create a process to convert existing servers into virtual servers within the shortest timeframe possible.
VMware Virtualization Solutions
As enterprises grow, IT organizations must rapidly add computing capacity—often in the form of new servers with a variety of operating environments. The resulting server sprawl is costly to create, manage and upgrade. Nth Generation's consolidation services using VMware software solves these problems. A virtual infrastructure enables workload isolation and granular resource control for all of a system's computing and I/O resources. By consolidating physical systems in the data center onto virtual servers using VMware's virtual infrastructure, Nth helps clients experience:
• Lower total cost of ownership of servers
• Higher server utilization
• Increased operational efficiency
• Improved manageability
HP Virtualization Solutions
Nth Generation's HP server virtualization solutions increase utilization of resources by pooling, sharing and allocating them as needed. Many businesses assign applications to specific servers. Unfortunately, when those applications are not being used, the server sits idle and resources are wasted. Nth's server virtualization solutions include HP Virtual Server Environment (HP VSE) and HP Virtual Machine Manager (HP VMM). Both help organizations concentrate server resources where they are needed most, helping the organization keep pace with changing market demands and creating an Adaptive Enterprise.
These solutions help an organization:
• Deliver the computing power required by every part of the company
• Reduce costs of IT
• Streamline management of the server environment
• Improve agility to meet changing business requirements
Blades servers are typically slender, modular servers, each with its own processors and memory. “Blades” often share power supplies, cooling, interconnects, cabling and storage by slipping into a backplane inside a standard chassis or enclosure. Leveraging new HP c-Class BladeSystem servers, Nth Generation can fit an entire datacenter inside a 17” box, providing great cost savings in energy, floorspace and ease-of-management.
For decades, Nth Generation has configured, built and installed high-end servers for 7X24, mission-critical datacenters. These systems typically host an organization’s key applications: Oracle, SAP, Peoplesoft, SAS and more. Nth’ Generation’s high-end server solutions include HP Integrity Servers based on the new Intel Itanium2 processor (aka “Montecito”), HP 9000 Superdome servers and HP AlphaServer systems, each supporting a variety of operating system choices.
