 Virtualisation

​Virtualisation is firmly entrenched in  the strategies of IT leaders. Like many organisations, it's likely that cost savings and the containment of capex spend were the initial driving forces behind the uptake of virtualisation in your business.

But other drivers are now emerging: virtualisation improves business continuity and resilience, and can assist you in disaster recovery preparations. How can virtualisation position your business for cloud computing? How can you harness the power of virtualisation to reduce operational costs and improve automation?

Virtualisation is also moving beyond the server and storage domains. Desktop virtualisation is on the fast track to mainstream adoption. How can desktop virtualisation help you manage device proliferation … and operate more effectively and securely in today's mobile, user-centric workspace? How can it streamline your application and operating system upgrades?
Overview

 

If you're looking for more efficient, cost-effective ways to reduce your data centre footprint and cost through server virtualisation and maximise the benefits of desktop virtualisation, we can assist:

  • We're conversant in all leading virtualisation technologies, without being tied to any particular vendor, which means we can recommend the right blend of solutions for your business.
  • Our deep domain expertise in networking, security, data centres and Microsoft technologies enables us to consider all the touchpoints that virtualisation has within your environment, both at the desktop and server levels.
  • Our expertise in data centres facilities, including power and cooling optimisation, allows you to maximise the impact of your server and storage virtualisation projects.
  • We'll ensure that all data protection, backup and recovery considerations within your virtual environment are thoroughly addressed.
  • We'll assist you to optimise your management processes to maximise the improvements that virtualisation offers, through a thorough assessment of your IT service management capabilities.
  • We'll tailor our solutions to your requirements … applying the skills and best practices we've gathered through deploying, implementing and supporting virtual server, storage and desktop environments for clients around the world.
