Go beyond virtualization with advance solutions that cut costs, reduce complexity and enhance user experience.

Understanding virtualization technology

New software, from operating systems to applications, constantly demands more; more data, more processing power, more memory. Virtualization makes a single physical machine act like multiple—saving you the cost of more servers and workstations.

Virtualization is the process of creating a software-based, or virtual, representation of something, such as virtual applications, servers, storage and networks. It is the single most effective way to reduce IT expenses while boosting efficiency and agility for all size businesses

You can be confident that you are working with an experienced and trusted solution delivery partner that will help you assess your current environment and develop a Virtualization strategy that will work for both you and your business.

What can you virtualize?

  • Server virtualization

    Server virtualization allows you to tap into the full power of your server by partitioning it into multiple virtual servers, each running its own operating system. In doing so, you can do more with less and significantly reduce hardware and operating costs.

  • Desktop and application virtualization

    Today’s employees want to use their own devices and have access to their apps from outside the office. Installing and maintaining apps and desktops on individual computers for each employee is expensive and can be a management and security nightmare.

    With virtual desktops and apps, IT can deploy hundreds of simulated apps and desktops to users at once rather than having to install them on each computer. Not only does app and desktop virtualization give employees the freedom to work how, when, and where they want, but it gives IT more control, better security, and easier management. Virtual apps and desktops also help organizations ensure regulatory compliance, disaster recovery and business continuity.

  • Network virtualization

    Network virtualization makes it easier to program and provision the network — things like load balancing and firewalling — without having to touch the underlying infrastructure. IT typically manages the software components using a software-based administrator’s console.

    As computing needs evolve, network virtualization simplifies how IT rolls out, scales, and adjusts workloads.

Virtualization and cloud computing

Cloud computing is the delivery of shared computing resources, software, or data as a service through the internet. Virtualization is one of the key technologies that makes cloud computing possible. Cloud providers use virtualization so they can serve many customers from one server. Many organizations use both virtualization and cloud computing for maximum efficiencies.

Benefits of Virtualization

A virtual infrastructure can increase IT agility, flexibility and scalability while creating significant cost savings. Greater workload mobility, increased performance and availability of resources, automated operations – they’re all benefits of virtualization that make IT simpler to manage and less costly to own and operate. Additional benefits include:

  • Reduced capital and operating costs.
  • Minimized or eliminated downtime.
  • Increased IT productivity, efficiency, agility and responsiveness.
  • Faster provisioning of applications and resources.
  • Greater business continuity and disaster recovery.
  • Simplified data center management.
  • Availability of a true Software-Defined Data Center.
