The Cisco UCS will be used for a VMWarevirtual environment and the City-Parish is in the process of virtualizing many of older Dell servers. Most of the servers that are in use have a utilization rate of under 10%. The network traffic volume on the servers is not formally tracked but the environment has nothad any major issues. Three servers are configured in a clustered environment to deliver performance andredundancy. Most of the servers have some redundant features, such as dual power supplies and mirroreddisks. A maintenance program is in place to support all key components of the server environment. The redundant power supplies are connected to diverse UPS power sources. Both data centershave full redundancy. The distribution of the physical server operating systems is as follows: Windows 2003 16,Windows 2008 11, Linux 12, Open VMS 1, VMWare ESXi 6.0 - 6.
