HP VMware Solution Sizer


HP just released a VMware Sizer utility .  This is an automated tool that assists the user with the size and scope of their server environment. This sizer will calculate the best way to consolidate old servers onto new machines running multiple virtualized environments. The sizing information and algorithms have been developed using testing and performance data on HP Servers running VMware ESX Server.

After a short questionnaire, the user will be presented with a solution detailing the recommended hardware with part numbers and a price list. The user will also find a chart detailing the recommended consolidation configuration and estimated utilizations for the new hardware.

Before using this sizer, the user is expected to have collected a certain amount of information about the details of their new solution:

Statistics describing the configuration and current loads of the old servers to consolidate. This Excel file of sample data can be used to help collect this data.

·          VMware ESX Server options including NIC redundancy and VMotion.

·          Storage configuration including desired drive type, RAID level and storage methods.

·          HP Proliant Server platforms of interest.

·          Target utilizations desired for the host machines.
