Virtualization Performance and Capacity

Company Name:
Allstate
## Description
The purpose of this practice area is to measure, analyze, and report on the performance and capacity of virtualization hosting environments that have been built on solutions designed, engineered, and delivered as part of a centralized platform for the Allstate Enterprise. Scope of involvement includes all infrastructure components and related processes to support x86-based virtualization platforms. As new capabilities are identified, the virtualization team is responsible for system design, engineering, integration, capacity analysis, performance study, operational readiness and configuration support for the defined capability. The mission of the virtualization team is to provide a platform that will enable Allstate to rapidly develop and deploy new products and services that leverage our technology assets and process knowledge to enable business growth while optimizing the consumption of computing power.
By its nature, effective virtualization requires knowledge and context of complex technologies and their corresponding processes. The evolution of the platform is currently focused on continued expansion of the Platform offerings to a wider range of systems and applications, including those that are critical to business operations. With this expansion, additional focus will be required in all areas of Operational Management. Effective monitoring and event management, change management, release management and capacity planning are essential. System availability cannot be compromised. As a result, focus will be placed on the prevention of incidents through predictive analysis and yellow-to-green initiatives.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
