Server virtualisation enables multiple operating systems and applications to run on as little as a single
physical host making your entire infrastructure simple to manage and more efficient.
Benefits of Server Virtualisation
Historically, each server in a business ran on a dedicated piece of hardware with many companies running multiple servers. With the huge increase in hardware performance, virtualisation enables multiple operating systems and applications to run on as little as a single host, making your entire infrastructure simple to manage and far more efficient.
Virtualising your infrastructure enables a business to benefit from high availability and uptime while reducing the amount of physical hardware that needs to be purchased. With a correctly scaled virtual environment, your business can quickly and easily adapt to new requirements and changes as they happen.
Key benefits of virtualisation include simplified IT infrastructure, reduced operating costs, increased flexibility and rapid disaster recovery.
High availability and disaster recovery
By virtualising, your servers are no longer tied to their physical box. When disaster strikes, we can quickly recover your data to alternative hardware.
With multiple virtual servers, the load can be split amongst two or more hosts removing the need to shut down your servers for hardware maintenance or upgrades.
When combined with shared storage your options increase along with performance and reliability.
Extend the life of legacy applications as hardware is retired
Virtualising your servers gives you many more options as you try to maximise your IT budget. As hardware ages, it becomes more expensive to support and running single applications on a physical server is no longer cost effective.
Once virtualised your servers are no longer dependant on old hardware and can be seamlessly moved without any disruption as upgrades or maintenance is performed.
