versus a single Dell PowerEdge R810 solution. Lower idle power is better.
We have shown why you should consolidate your older databases
to a single Dell PowerEdge R810 with four Intel Xeon Processor
7500 series. Now we address the next question: How to accomplish
this? We discuss planning issues, setup of the Dell PowerEdge R810
with Dell EqualLogic PS5000XV storage, the actual migration using
a simple backup/restore method, and post-migration
considerations.
As with any migration or consolidation, planning is a key element.
You must be aware of many specific details related to each physical
server you target for consolidation, including the maintenance
window in which you will migrate the server to its new
environment, the users the move will affect, and the configuration
tasks necessary to assimilate the databases into your consolidated
environment. A more comprehensive example survey appears in
