Here’s a bold claim: Whatever you are trying to achieve with IT today, server virtualisation will allow you to get there.
Today our customers want to:
Reduce management complexity
Be more flexible
Use less power
Buy less hardware
Do more with less
Server virtualisation allows significant consolidation of server numbers by removing the association between hardware and software. The usual incompatibilities between critical applications is eradicated by convincing those apps that they have their own dedicated hardware, even though they are happily residing on the same device as another app that would normally cause them to crash.
Money saved by buying less hardware
Money saved by using less energy
More done with less
A management console allows the entire server estate to be managed from a single pane of glass. In fact integration with the network and storage infrastructure means policies can be designed to automate the entire process involved with provisioning a server.
Management complexit reduced
In addition to reducing the hardware estate, virtualisation can significantly improve availability. Virtual machines are not tied to the server hardware which means they can be moved from device to device without downtime. Hardware maintenance, software updates and patches can be applied without having to stop key services to staff or customers. Productivity and profitability will be increased as a result.
Availability of resources improved
Flexibility of resources improved
Virtualisation will save you money, time, confusion and worry whilst improving performance and profitability. Virtualisation allows IT to become an even better business tool and less of an expense.
