Another industry buzz word, system virtualisation has been around since the sixties. In short, it means running more “virtual” systems on one physical piece or layer of hardware, maximising the power of modern processors and storage arrays. This is how modern cloud computing has been built, but it also has very practical uses for the small to medium business.
Any company that employs more than one server per location can take advantage of this virtualisation technology. Servers and the energy they use are expensive; virtualisation can reduce both of these by consolidating server sprawl. It can help prolong server applications by moving them onto newer virtual hardware, whilst retaining older operating system environments.
virtualisation can also reduce desktop costs. Desktops can be moved into a virtual desktop environment (VDI), instantly upgrading the hardware they were utilizing. New desktops can be created in this environment, standardised, managed and supported without concern to local hardware, delivering real savings in desktop infrastructure.
Electro-Comm already delivers all of these products and services to its existing customer base. We are VMWare Professional Partners and Microsoft HyperV trained and as such have the knowledge, training and experience to help your move into this exciting cost saving opportunity.
