Time & Cost SavingsGet a complimentary consulting session to determine how Virtualization can help your business.
Reducing Costs, Power Consumption, and Space with VirtualizationVirtualization of servers, storage and networks can improve efficiency and availability of your IT systems while drastically reducing on-going hardware and service costs. From simple server consolidation projects to complete Cloud Computing solutions, IT Resource has the experience and certified engineers to transform your existing systems into highly flexible, redundant and cost-effective virtualized environments.
What is virtualization?
Virtualization is a technology that is maturing and being adopted by everyone from small businesses, governments, and schools to very large enterprise organizations. It allows a customer to greatly reduce their IT and engineering overhead, as well as save costs related to management, power consumption, cooling, and space. Today’s servers have the power of 10 to 20 of yesterday’s servers. It only makes sense to combine multiple servers that are not being fully utilized, to one or more virtual servers, allowing the operating system to maximize hardware by sharing the available resources.
We recently implemented a virtualization infrastructure that allowed a client to reduce 18 servers down to 4, giving them room for growth in the future. In doing so they’ve saved on space, power, and now have the ability to roll out a new server or test machine in minutes instead of hours or days. A benefit of virtualization that this client also realized is the ability to have all their servers highly available and redundant, reducing the amount of time a server is down because of hardware to minutes, instead of days or weeks. It gives them peace of mind that their network is always up and running.
- Top 5 Reasons to Adopt Virtualization Software
- Get more out of your existing resources: Pool common infrastructure resources and break the legacy of “one application to one server” model with server consolidation.
- Reduce data center costs: Fewer servers and IT hardware means reduced real estate and reduced power and cooling requirements.
- Improve 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.
