Server Configuration Management Provisioning
Join BearingPoint technologist and senior manager, Gabriel Leung to explore why servers go down and what, if anything, companies can do to improve server management. Focusing on the provisioning of a new server, this podcast zeroes in on how automation can help
Getting down to the basics of how it works, today’s server environment is quite complex, with typically thousands of platforms in different geographical locations. Management of the servers becomes a complex process of promoting the right files to the right server and maintaining the configuration concurrency of all the servers.
Adding to the problem, many IT departments are asked to do more with less as the administrator-to-server ratio continues to decline. More than ever, administrators are asked to manage more and more servers manually. Server automation for configuration and provisioning management will become an integral part of the entire IT infrastructure as companies move into virtualization and dynamic provisioning.
