Virtualization Solutions

Reduce total cost of ownership and increase performance and ROI

Save Money on Physical Hardware

Realize true hardware cost savings, increase your ROI for every dollar spent and leverage the newest, most up to date and secure operating systems for your line of business application server needs.

The old and costly way of server desktop design and deployment dictated dedicating unique physical hardware, operating systems and line of business applications for specific needs, workloads and users. This meant having multiple servers and desktops to buy, maintain, upgrade and ultimately replace over and over again.

Server and Desktop Virtualization technology now allows us to run multiple operating system instances and associated line of business applications and workloads on a single physical server – dramatically lowering your total cost of ownership.

Possibilities

  • Lower total overall operational costs
  • Run multiple operating systems on one physical machine
  • Make on-site recovery dramatically easier
  • Reduce space, cooling and electrical requirements
  • Provide fault and security isolation at the hardware level
  • Easily move legacy applications to new hardware
  • Allow users to use their own devices to access Virtual Desktops that you control

Consolidate and Reduce Server Sprawl and Improve Business Continuity While Saving Money

There are many benefits of Server Virtualization, including consolidating and reducing the total number of physical servers you use. You can combine multiple line of business applications and Virtual Desktops on a single piece of hardware, reducing the total number of servers and PCs required in the office or data center. Fewer servers means fewer racks and less networking equipment, translating into significant savings on everything from hardware to physical space to maintenance, electricity and air conditioning costs.

Cost reductions can also be realized by reducing PC refresh cycles as Virtual Desktops can run in an Internet Browser session with much less processing power required by the user’s PC, as well as by allowing users to utilize their own devices to work remotely in a Virtual Desktop environment.

Pain Points Solved

Lower Operating Costs – Server Virtualization reduces your capital expenditure for new hardware, eliminating costly hardware refresh cycles.

Increase Server Efficiency – Hypervisors allow host hardware resources to be shared across multiple Virtual Machines, reducing hardware bloat.

Reduce and Extend PC Refresh Cycles – Virtual Desktops can run in an Internet Browser session with much less processing power than locally installed operating systems and applications.

Improve Disaster Recovery Outcomes – Spin up a Virtual Machine in seconds, and move or redeploy multiple workloads to dissimilar hardware in minutes.

How it Works

Virtualization technology allows the creation of IT services using resources that are traditionally bound to specific hardware. It allows you to use a physical machine’s full processing capacity by hosting multiple segregated operating environments within a single host machine and distributing its capabilities among many users or environments.

Software called a hypervisor separates physical resources such as disk space, cpu and memory from each Virtual Machine or environment running on its host hardware and allows these resources to be securely shared among all environments economically.

Hypervisors can run natively on hardware such as a server or run on top of a server or desktop’s operating system such as Microsoft Windows or Linux.

Implementation Timeline

To deliver a Server Virtualization Solution, we’ll conduct a Discovery meeting in order to understand your business needs and requirements, along with the outcome you would like to realize from our engagement.

Next, we’ll schedule an environmental assessment to scan, analyze and document your current server infrastructure and architecture, roles, operating systems, and applications, along with users, groups and permissions. Once this is complete, we’ll begin migration planning to develop our project plan along with risk, communication and change management strategy.

Once we’ve presented our strategy to you and receive your authorization, we’ll schedule the migration to occur with minimal impact to your organization, than be onsite after Go-Live to address any user issues that may arise. Finally, we’ll decommission old Servers or repurpose them, according to our project plan.

A Desktop Virtualization Solution shares similar components and timelines, but most of the migration occurs in the Cloud, reducing our overall onsite time.
