Virtualisation

Costly, unplanned server and storage sprawl wastes money, resource, time, and space. Virtualisation promises to help, but you want to make an informed decision. Let Form assist you...

Virtualisation is changing everything. It's changing the way resources are deployed and managed, greatly simplifying and speeding IT response to a changing business environment.

Virtualisation is a technology that can benefit anyone who uses a computer, from IT professionals to commercial businesses and educational organisations. Join the millions of people around the world who use virtualisation already to save time, money and energy while achieving more with the computer hardware they already own.

In essence, virtualisation allows you to run multiple applications and operating systems independently on a single server. Additionally, administrators can quickly move workloads from one virtual workspace to another - easily prioritising business needs while maximising server resources.

The main drivers to virtualise include:
Server Consolidation and Infrastructure Optimisation: Virtualisation makes it possible to achieve significantly higher resource utilization by pooling common infrastructure resources and breaking the legacy “one application to one server” model.

Physical Infrastructure Cost Reduction:
With virtualisation, you can reduce the number of servers and related IT hardware in the data center. This leads to reductions in real estate, power and cooling requirements, resulting in significantly lower IT costs.

Improved Operational Flexibility & Responsiveness:
Virtualisation offers a new way of managing IT infrastructure and can help IT administrators spend less time on repetitive tasks such as provisioning, configuration, monitoring and maintenance.

Increased Application Availability & Improved Business Continuity:
Eliminate planned downtime and recover quickly from unplanned outages with the ability to securely backup and migrate entire virtual environments with no interruption in service.

Improved Desktop Manageability & Security:
Deploy, manage and monitor secure desktop environments that end users can access locally or remotely, with or without a network connection, on almost any standard desktop, laptop or tablet PC.
