Until recently, virtualisation was not economically viable for many medium-sized
companies. However, this has changed due to increased competition in the marketplace
and product maturity. Our in-depth understanding of virtualisation technology enables
us to take advantage of the huge range of benefits it can offer. These include:
Lower hardware and software costs
Improved server utilisation, giving a better return on investment.
Reduced server sprawl.
Lower maintenance costs.
Reduced down time.
Simplified backup and restoration procedures, including disaster recovery.
Maintenance of legacy systems.
Our preferred virtualisation vendor is VMware as they are the market leader with
the most advanced products. We have VMware Certified Professionals (VCPs) which
means you can be confident of our ability to advise on every aspect of the design
and implementation. However, we also implement competitor products as such Microsoft
Hyper-V and Citrix XenServer so are able to offer unbiased advice on the best solution
In addition to server virtualisation, discussed above, desktop virtualisation can
also bring huge cost savings to medium-sized companies. Although an initial investment
is needed in the back-end infrastructure, you are able to say goodbye to the continual
cost and administration of maintaining desktop machines.
