Smarter placements = big $ savings.

Microsoft®’s Windows® Server - Data Center Edition software licensing enables you to license an entire physical host server and run an unlimited number of instances on that machine. But to take advantage of this model, you need to place VMs with a view to minimize host licensing requirements and maximize density. Densify.com optimizes placement decisions to save you an average of 55% on Microsoft® Windows® Server - Data Center Edition by:

  1. Reducing the number of processors/hosts requiring licenses. By maximizing VM density and isolating licensed VMs from those not requiring the licenses.
  2. Avoiding sprawl by containing the licensed VMs on the licensed physical servers. By restricting placements of licensed VMs to the designated physical servers ensuring ongoing licensing compliance and efficiency.

Keep Control As New Workloads Enter Optimized Environments

Critical to keeping control over time is ensuring that as new VMs enter the environment that require the license, they land on licensed servers and VMs are fit together across the licensed hosts in order to maximize efficiency. Densify.com optimizes placements for both existing workloads and any new workloads that enter an environment. Densify.com also provides visibility into requirements to grow or modify license pools based on upcoming demand.

Fix the Problem Before Renewals Are Due.

Don’t wait to address licensing until renewal time or when you run out. Optimizing environments even mid-contract helps manage growth to avoid expansion and when it comes time to renew, you have an accurate handle on what you require now, in the future to save on maintenance.

Some of the packages Densify.com has been leveraged to optimize include:
