CNT 4603: Project One Page 3 Dr. Mark Llewellyn © Project One: The Scenario What you are going to do in this project is pretend that you are the system administrator for an organization that is attempting to determine if virtualization of its computing infrastructure would be beneficial to the organization from a financial perspective. As the system administrator you are in charge of conducting the cost/benefit analysis for the proposed virtualization project. This will include creating financial spreadsheets using a 5 year projection and writing a brief report summarizing your findings. The next few pages describe the current infrastructure of the organization and the proposed virtualization project. Let’s call the organization the ITCorp.

CNT 4603: Project One Page 4 Dr. Mark Llewellyn © Project One: The Scenario Currently ITCorp is running 30 physical servers which support various applications and several different operating systems. Each of these servers is of the same type and at their average workload consume 3000W of power. The maintenance contract on the current physical servers currently costs $300.00/server/year. You estimate that the server administration effort amounts to 1 week/server/year currently and that the effort required to do system backups requires 15 minutes/day/server currently. ITCorp employs no other external vendors (hard costs) other than those already mentioned.
