Server Virtualization:Navy Network Operations Centers

GSBA 573 IT Project Management


Introduction
Introduction

  • The Navy maintains several Network Operations Centers (NOCs) that are critical to their mission.

  • The NOCs are overwhelmed by the rapid growth of information system:

    • Space

    • Heat

    • Power

  • This project will address this issue through the application of server virtualization technology.


Problem
Problem

  • Navy NOC #1 has reached capacity ahead of schedule.

  • Plant facilities require immediate and expensive upgrades to support additional systems.

  • Modernized systems must be installed to reduce costs and improve capabilities, but existing systems cannot be immediately decommissioned.

  • Operating at capacity is an operational risk to the Navy.


Project objectives
Project Objectives

  • Implement server virtualization technology to reduce the number of physical servers:

    • Eliminate the risk of systems failure

      • Overheating

      • Power Failure

    • Eliminate the cost of interim fixes and schedule delay

      • Keep Projects on Schedule

    • Reduce the cost of future installations.

      • Future Server Deployment

      • Future Facility Upgrades (NOC #2)


Stakeholders
Stakeholders

  • The facilities management team at NOCs 1 and 2.

  • The operations staff.

  • The engineering team.

  • The shore modernization team.

  • The Fleet Readiness Certification Board (FRCB).

  • The security Certification and Accreditation (C&A) team.

  • The Navy Designated Approval Authority (DAA).

  • All Navy Customers.


Project justification
Project Justification

  • Current server utilization is very low.

    • Industry estimate = 5% on average.

    • Additional capacity is wasted and wastes resources.

  • Servers can be consolidated on a 10 to 1 ratio (maximum).

    • Navy estimate = 4 to 1

  • Consolidation can recover as much as 75% of the current facilities resources.

    • Cost Avoidance

    • Risk Reduction


Project requirements
Project Requirements

  • The project must achieve a minimum server consolidation ratio of 2 to 1.

  • Consolidated server hardware resource utilization will not exceed 80%.

  • Navy Designated Approval Authority (DAA) must approve the security certification and accreditation package.

  • Fleet Readiness Certification Board (FRCB) must approve the installation.

  • Consolidation efforts must not degrade the level of service provided by the servers or increase long-term operational risk.

  • Overall maintenance costs must decrease within the following fiscal year.

  • Virtualization technology will only be deployed at the two primary NOCs.

  • No server installations will be performed to achieve the consolidation, only existing server hardware can be used.

  • Additional Storage Area Network (SAN) materials can be procured if cost savings can still be achieved.

  • Planned system downtime will not exceed three hours.
