Virtualization for the Southern Tier
Don’t Needlessly Waste Your Money! Find the Advantages of Virtualization
According to industry leader and Databranch partner VMware, about 70% of a typical IT budget in a non-virtualized datacenter goes towards just maintaining the existing infrastructure, with little left for innovation. Virtualization enables you to dramatically reduce costs of your entire IT infrastructure across all company locations, from capital expenditures to ongoing maintenance.
Top 5 Reasons to Adopt Virtualization Software
- Get more out of your existing resources: Pool common infrastructure resources and break the legacy “one application to one server” model with server consolidation.
- Reduce datacenter costs by reducing your physical infrastructure and improving your server to admin ratio: Fewer servers and related IT hardware means reduced real estate and reduced power and cooling requirements. Better management tools let you improve your server to admin ratio so personnel requirements are reduced as well.
- Increase availability of hardware and applications for improved business continuity: Securely backup and migrate entire virtual environments with no interruption in service. Eliminate planned downtime and recover immediately from unplanned issues.
- Gain operational flexibility: Respond to market changes with dynamic resource management, faster server provisioning and improved desktop and application deployment.
- Improve desktop manageability and security: Deploy, manage and monitor secure desktop environments that users can access locally or remotely, with or without a network connection, on almost any standard desktop, laptop or tablet PC
In addition to consolidating hardware and eliminating legacy systems, virtualization goes a step further through greater utilization of each IT asset, lowering utility costs related to power and cooling and ensuring regulatory compliance. Virtualization also provides an optimized backup solution and a defacto disaster recovery system following minor power outages to natural calamities like fire, floods and storms—disasters that drive up to 50% of companies out of business who don’t have a disaster recovery plan.
- Planning: analysis of all application, hardware, data migration, implementation, and IT support needs
- Implementation: implementation of a virtual architecture that meets all of your requirements and generates all the benefits listed above
- Management: ongoing monitoring and resolution of issues
- Proactive Maintenance: ensuring that all equipment and software are working properly before you run into issues
