Dear Colleagues, I am in a dilemma and looking for an answer to simple matter related to server deployment and virtualization. Let me elaborate.
Our IT department maintains about 60 different servers that are running various applications and web sites. Obviosuly, it makes sense and we are planning to deploy VM ware based virtualization environment in 3-6months time frame. Meanwhile, one of our critical department is urgently requesting to install an application's server version.
Now the question is whether we should ask them to wait for 3-6 months for deployment of VM ware and then have their server version application? Is there any advanatge of keep them waiting for 3-6 months? Can't we simply include the new application server version within virtualization environment at the time of actual VM ware deployment?
Please send me your comments and suggestions on this. If you have any case study or white paper addressing this particular topic, please attach that as well.
