Atos Origin Launches New Server Consolidation Service
Atos Origin has launched a new server consolidation and server virtualization service based on its proven methodology and tools. The server consolidation service, part of Atos™ Infrastructure Solutions, takes a global approach to server consolidation and leverages Atos Origin's extensive experience in the outsourcing of data centers and associated server consolidations.

Server consolidation and virtualization allows the efficient use of computer server resources in order to reduce the total number of servers or server locations that an organization requires. It allows enterprises to deal seamlessly and effectively with events such as the end-of-life issues surrounding hardware and software. It offers the following key benefits: reduced costs, diversity and complexity, and improved flexibility, agility and quality of service.

Atos Origin provides an innovative practice for IT infrastructure consolidation. Its service is based on a consistent methodology and toolset, including the use of its unique assessment tooling, based on three main phases: QuickScan (assist clients to build the initial business case for consolidation using Atos Origin's unique QuickScan tool), a detailed assessment (confirm business case through detailed analysis, design and planning), and implementation.

"Atos Origin's server consolidation service introduces a global approach to aligning IT services and operational processes," said Mark Cyran, vice president of managed operations for Atos Origin in North America. "We are responding to the continuous pressure on U.S. companies to reduce IT spending and drive down total cost of ownership, while executing change and complying with new regulations. To deliver successful server consolidation, Atos Origin believes that strong, collaborative partnerships with its customers are crucial where both parties share the risks and rewards."

"Atos Origin's extensive experience with server consolidation coupled with Intel's virtualization technology will enable customers to more rapidly make the business case for deployment virtualization technology," said Boyd Davis, General Manager of Server Platforms marketing for Intel Corporation.

Atos Origin can deliver solutions using the newest, powerful open standards-based hardware and software that was only possible on more expensive proprietary (RISC) architectures in the past.

Atos Origin has more than 15 years experience in delivering large-scale server consolidation projects and has a vast portfolio including distributed consolidation, data center consolidation, application consolidation and IT business consolidation. The Server Consolidation Service is part of Atos™ Infrastructure Solutions, a solution that provides infrastructure management services ranging from remote system management, secure data center hosting to utility services.
