If your organization hasn’t yet implemented any virtualization technologies, it soon will.
Today close to 25% of all servers shipped world-wide are virtualized. However, in addition to servers, desktops, applications, and storage can be virtualized.
Traditional physical Windows-based servers only utilize 5-10% of the underlying hardware capacity and virtualizing them typically allows for consolidation rates of 10:1. That means that one of today’s servers can power up to 10 virtual servers. This allows for tremendous cost savings in terms of consolidating server sprawl and and reducing space needed and power consumed and cooling needed. Furthermore, the ability to manually or automatically move virtual servers around allows for a completely new level of business continuity and disaster recovery.
- Reduced hardware costs
- Less space needed
- Reduced energy used
- More flexibility and server setup and disaster recovery
- Less hardware and software to maintain
90-95% of your PC resources sit idle at any given time. Desktop virtualization allows you to separate the desktop operating system and all applications from your desktop computer which can reduce the cost of your PC ownership by 40%. All computing processes take place at the server level which is completely transparent to the user, but allows your users to access their needed files and applications across any connection and from any device—even mobile phones.
- Reduced PC desktop costs
- Reduced energy needed
- Great control of data and applications
- Reduced maintenance costs
Application virtualization allows for greater efficiencies by detaching the application from the operating system. This allows for much greater compatibility, manageability and portability of the applications themselves. Applications take up tremendous amount of bandwidth and space on your desktops, but application virtualization allows for programs to be streamed on demand so that applications are not needed to be installed on the host as traditionally done.
- Dramatically improve security and support
- Less maintenance and upgrade time
- Less hardware power consumption and strain
Vast Virtualization Experience
We know from our clients that your business world is spinning faster than ever. To remain competitive in your market, technology cannot stand in the way of business agility. IT must serve as an enabling and accelerating force for change. When your market and your competitors change, you have to be able to change faster.
Furthermore, IT ownership cost is weighing down most organizations, and these costs ultimately have to be passed on to your customers. Without a cost-effective IT environment your internal cost structure will seriously harm your competitiveness in the market.
Let’s discuss how virtualization could become your most competitive business advantage. Virtualization is no longer a technology for technology’s sake, but a technology for business’ sake.
