IBM Launches eCon Program

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. -- Devon IT, Inc., a leader in alternative desktop computing, and its integration arm, CentriServ, today announced the launch of their Enterprise Consolidation Assessment (eCon) program, in conjunction with IBM. eCon is designed specifically for large enterprises interested in the ROI and TCO benefits of server consolidation via blades servers, virtualization technologies, and client consolidation. The companies are discussing the program at the Citrix Synergy show in Houston, Texas.

During initial pilot engagements, Devon IT and CentriServ have found that, amongst potential and current customers, most enterprises are unknowingly using only about seven percent of their server processing capacity and four percent of their desktop power. Companies with as few as 12 servers and 50 end users have found that performance and utilization can suffer if hardware and software arent optimally allocated.

“Virtualization allows enterprises to utilize their servers and desktops much more efficiently,” notes Anthony Falsone, president of CentriServ. “eCon helps companies understand how blade servers, virtualization, thin clients, and other components of alternative desktop computing can benefit their IT environments from a number of angles. Our experts present a detailed analysis of a company’s infrastructure, using proven methodologies from IBM, Citrix, and VMware, while leveraging experience in deploying virtual servers and Devon IT thin client terminals.”
