What we do
If your organization hasn't yet implemented any virtualisation technologies, it soon will.
Today close to 25% of all servers shipped world-wide are virtualised. However, in addition to servers, desktops, applications, and storage can be virtualised.
What is Virtualisation?
Virtualisation lets you run multiple virtual machines on a single physical machine, with each virtual machine sharing the resources of that one physical computer across multiple environments. Different virtual machines can run different operating systems and multiple applications on the same physical computer.
Using Virtualisation in Your Business
Traditional physical Windows-based servers only utilise around 10% of the underlying hardware capacity and virtualising them typically allows for consolidation rates of 10:1. That means that one of today’s servers can power up to 10 virtual servers. This allows for tremendous cost savings in terms of replacing servers, reducing space needed, power consumed and cooling needed. Furthermore, the ability to manually or automatically move virtual servers around allows for a completely new level of business continuity and disaster recovery.
- Reduced hardware costs
- Less physical office space needed
- Reduced energy consumption
- More flexibility and disaster recovery
- Less hardware and software to maintain
90-95% of your PC resources sit idle at any given time. Desktop Virtualisation allows you to separate the desktop operating system and all applications from your desktop computer which can reduce the cost of your PC ownership by 40%. All computing processes take place at the server level which is completely transparent to the user, but allows your users to access data, emails and applications across any connection and from any device including computers, laptops, mobile phones etc.
- Reduced PC desktop costs
- Reduced energy needed
- Great control of data and applications
- Reduced maintenance costs
Application Virtualisation allows for greater efficiencies by detaching the application from the operating system. This allows for much greater compatibility, manageability and portability of the applications themselves. Applications take up tremendous amounts of bandwidth and space on your desktops, but application Virtualisation allows for programs to be streamed on demand so that applications are not needed to be installed on the host as traditionally done.
- Dramatically improves security and support
- Less maintenance and upgrade time
- Less hardware power consumption and strain
