1.Prepare1.1 BackgroundA sampling methodology is selected for the analysing of the requirement and produce a serverimplementation plan. The workload and identification of the group of server is also important for thereplacement of the physical hardware and increase the efficiency of the system. The virtualization ofthe server can help to share the common resources and can be used for running multipleapplications of the same hardware platform. With the virtualization of the server the existing serverscan be migrated and the number of physical server can be decreased for decreasing themaintenance cost.1.2 GoalsThe main goals of the management team are listed below:To have an overall control on the virtual server infrastructure and control it from a centralpoint.To use a virtual environment for the deployment of the server and meet the technicalrequirement of the organization.To use virtualization of the server and manage the resources of the organization usingvmware virtual infrastructure methodology.1.3 ScopeWith the implementation of the server virtualization technology on the availability of the network canbe improved and the service level agreement can be managed from a central point. The virtualizationcan be used for disaster recovery and the following technology can be used for the improvement ofthe network infrastructure.VmWare Motion – It can be utilized for the migration of the workloads form one server to anotherwithout interruption in the current process. It also helps in load balancing and scheduling thedowntime network.High Availability – The virtualization can reduce the maintenance cost and the hardware failure eventcan also be mitigated.Distributed resource scheduler can be used for the computation of the resource requirement andschedule the workloads on the virtual machines and achievement of the optimum efficiency of thenetwork.1.4 ConstraintsThe constraint faced during the development of the virtual server is the breakdown of the networkcomponents into different elements and the contentious management of the switch is necessary. Theoutdated switches installed in the network have low visibility of the Vm traffic and they are required tobe replaced for monitoring the performance of the network. For the improvement of the scalability ofthe network a dynamic infrastructure management is necessary and DNS and DHCP configurationshould be done on the server for allocation of IP address to the odes connected with the servernetwork (Boddyet al.2017). An acceptable user environment should also be developed for the clientto server architecture on the WAN. For the deployment of the desktop virtualization focus should begiven on the WAN optimization methodology and sufficient bandwidth should be allocated to the user.
2.Plan2.1 Requirements2.1.1 Business RequirementsThe primary factor that is used for the virtualization of the server is the cost savings and increasingthe availability of the resources for reducing the network downtime. The hardware used for thedevelopment of the server is required to be reused and the targeted platform should be designed forthe accommodation of the future growth of the organization. A proper estimation of the resourcesrequired for the development of the server is necessary for the successful deployment of the virtualserver environment. The user group of the server should be categorized for the identification of thenumber of users and development of the virtual server. An active directory should be configured onthe server for management of the group policy and increasing the security of the network solution.2.1.2 Technical RequirementsHardware and software requirementComponentRequirement.NETRequired for sql server 2014 for the selection ofthe database and reporting service.Power ShellIt is required to be enabled for running the sqlserverNetworking SoftwareRequired for sending and receiving datapackets using TCP/IP protocol.VirtualizationSQL server is used for running hyper v andsufficient resources should be provided to thevirtual machines.HDD6 Gb space for the installation of the SQL serverand rest for storage of files and information inthe serverDriveDVD drive for installation of software from discInternetInternet access of minimum 1 Mbps bandwidthMonitorSuper VGA 800 X 600 or laterMemoryExpress edition 1 Gb or more.ProcessorX64 1.4 GHz or better with hyper v supportOperating SystemWindows Server 2012 R2 datacenter 64 bits2.2 Current2.2.1 EnvironmentThe current network infrastructure of the organization uses an outdated system software andhardware platform and it is required to be replaced with the latest version. The up gradation of theserver software and hardware would help the organization to handle more number of request at a timeand the security of the network can also be improved with the implementation of the group policy andmanagement of users connected in the network from a central server.
