Virtualisation is a proven strategy which will save your business time & money.
VMWare is without doubt the leader in virtualisation software.
ITBG is a VMWare partner and as such can help you transform your network from the physical to the virtual in one or more of the following ways:-
SERVER CONSOLIDATION & CONTAINMENT
With a virtualised network, several servers can be consolidated into one physical system running different operating systems and applications managed from a central console. Thereby reducing your costs in terms of hardware expenditure; floor space & power consumption.
More importantly, it saves you time and money in terms of deployment and manageability.
The vast majority of servers currently deployed are running at 10 – 15% of their capabilities Using virtualisation it is possible to increase this to 80-85%.
Deployment of new servers then becomes ‘on demand’ as it takes as little as 30 minutes to create and deploy a new virtual server and to make it available on your network to your users.
VMWare does not require a massive investment in new hardware either as your existing servers, regardless of the intermix between brand, model, specification, can be used as hosts for virtual servers.VMWare ‘rebrands’ all of the components as VMWare CPU, RAM HDD.
TESTING, FAULT RESOLUTION & DEVELOPMENT
By using VMWare in your desktop infrastructure, you can use the resources of one physical machine to run a host of operating systems and their applications and intermix Microsoft, Linux and Mac in separate virtual machines. VMWare centralises the management of the desktop, making it easier to manage and deploy.
In addition if you employ contractors or have users who work away from home, VMWare can encapsulate the live data that they ‘need to know’ without the need to invest in a separate PC and its time delineation features can be controlled by you.
