PEAK ASSESSMENT

POWER SERVER

HMC, VIOS, LPARs (IBMi)

Even though organizations run their businesses on the POWER platform, they often do not have trained personnel, refined processes and the right tools to maintain an IBMi environment.

The POWER Server Assessment is specifically designed to provide documentation, analysis and evaluation of the physical and logical aspects of the POWER Server infrastructure, HMC, VIO servers, and any LPARs running IBMi, network topologies and relevant configurations.

Goals & Objectives

The POWER Server Assessment report provided after the diagnostics and discovery has been conducted, is an easy to understand and comprehensive technical explanation of the subject infrastructure. In addition, the report will include recommendations for remediation such as how to modify system configurations, and other necessary changes to best ensure a fast and reliable experience for your organization’s users. The goal of this assessment is to help reduce the risk of downtime, lost productivity, and potential data loss.

  1.  Hardware analysis to compare the environment to other similar deployments. Identify where changes may result in higher consolidation ratios, better performance, and a lower TCO.
  2. Inventory of the environment to document and understand OS levels, workloads, licensing, and supportability issues.
  3. Identifying and addressing potential performance issues.
  4. Reducing the potential of downtime and lost productivity.
  5. LPAR Space utilization, memory, CPU utilization, network configuration, users, etc.
  6. HMC versions, Firmware versions and recommendations, vulnerabilities, best practices.
  7. VIO server software versions, updates, bottlenecks, performance impacts, and recommended improvements.
  8. Managed system overall health, available resources, dynamic configuration capabilities, weight/value analysis.
