One of the most effective ways to leverage your IT dollar it to consider the advantages of virtualization, of which there are many. Some of the most significant advantages include:
- Direct cost savings: virtualization reduces the number of servers you have to deploy, which means savings on hardware costs, maintenance, and on the total amount of energy required to run and cool your server environment
- Environmental advantages: virtualization is a green technology and has a smaller carbon footprint via the significant energy savings that can be realized
- Maximized efficiency of hardware usage: with virtualization each server can support multiple virtual machines, increasing server utilization rates from the typical 15% to as much as 80%.
- Simplified software installations: more software vendors are delivering their products preinstalled in virtual machines (known as virtual appliances), thus significantly reducing traditional software configuration and installation requirements
Our technicians have been trained and certified in virtualization for both VMWare and Hyper-V technologies.
