Application Configurations to Be Consolidated Onto One Server

In this example, five applications are being consolidated onto a single system. The target applications have resource requirements that vary, different user populations, and different architectures. Currently, each application exists on a dedicated server that is designed to meet the requirements of the application. The consolidation is done by a user assuming the root role.

The applications and their characteristics are identified in the following table.

Application Description
Application server
Exhibits negative scalability beyond 2 CPUs
Database instance for application server
Heavy transaction processing
Application server in test and development environment
GUI-based, with untested code execution
Transaction processing server
Primary concern is response time
Standalone database instance
