Solutions > Virtualization & Consolidation

Virtualization is not new. Virtualization goes back to the 1960s mainframes, during which it was a method of logically dividing the mainframes’ resources for different applications. Since then, the meaning of the term has evolved. Today, virtualization in areas of Desktops, Servers, Storage, Connectivity, and entire Data Centers is a proven strategy for improving efficiency and reducing cost in today’s complex data center infrastructures. It’s also the key to delivering IT as a Service for your clients. Whether you are 100% virtualized, or just “dipping your toes” in virtualization, proper design and planning will make or break your business.

Desktops, Servers, Storage & Data Centers

Virtualization is a strategy that now also applies to all areas of IT infrastructure, including storage, servers, desktops, and networks – even data centers.

  • Server virtualization: While VMware has become the defacto-standard for the virtualization of mission critical servers running the Windows and Linux operating systems, Microsoft, Redhat and others also have options and understanding the correct choice for your business need is the first step.
  • Virtualized desktops: With telecommuting, hoteling and the ongoing costs of client management, many organizations are investigating virtualized desktops. For some, it is too costly to justify. Knowing the pros and cons, options available and sound planning and execution is paramount to a successful deployment.
  • Storage virtualization: Virtualizing storage can deliver great benefits. It can also bring a business to its knees. Not all storage providers can effectively deliver a virtualized storage platform. Trying to “fit a square peg in a round hole” by “retro-fitting a legacy system is futile. Let the experts understand your needs and design a solution that meets your needs.
