Server Consolidation

We learned last time that if you overestimate the number of servers you have in your enterprise by 500% and then overestimate their maintenance costs by 1,000%, you can show that you are spending more money than Bill Gates makes while sleeping. It is a huge number.

So, our higher-ups demand that we lower this number of servers by consolidating them, whether or not they really exist. But after we consolidate them, we have to report back the identity of the actual servers so that $20,000 per server can be removed from our little budget.

It doesn't really matter that we only have a handful of servers and they cost much less to maintain. We will consolidate them and lose more money than it takes to maintain them all. Other mission project will have to take the hit since we really weren't spending it all on servers.

Of course it doesn't make sense because the numbers were wrong to begin with. But once the ball is rolling, its water over the dam.

I drop a comment whenever I especially enjoy a article on a
site or I have something to valuable to contribute
to the discussion. Usually it's a result of the fire communicated in the article I browsed. And after this article "Server Consolidation". I was moved enough to post a thought ;-) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be simply me or does it look like a few of the responses appear as if they are written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on additional social sites, I'd like
to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.
Could you make a list every one of all your social pages like your twitter feed,
Facebook page or linkedin profile?
