Virtualisation with VMware
'Virtualisation' is one of the most exciting and innovative technologies to emerge in recent years.
The Cloud is a virtual environment, and this technology has transformed the way modern IT systems are designed.
In the past, the accepted standard was to have separate physical servers for separate applications, meaning even smaller businesses could find themselves with three, four or more servers to run and maintain.
However, in a virtual environment multiple servers can be created and managed on fewer physical, or 'host' servers. Therefore lowering the costs of ownership and maintenance.
Disaster Recovery (DR) procedures have been revolutionised by server virtualisation. Due to the flexible centralised storage areas built in to virtual infrastructures, a host server failure becomes a minor inconvenience rather than a disaster.
Now, even small organisations with a single server can benefit from server virtualisation. It's no longer the future, it's the now. If you would like to know more about how your business could benefit, please don't hesitate to give us a call.
