If you don’t have a virtualization strategy, you need one. While the traditional server-desktop infrastructure is still valuable, it’s soon to be outdated, as many software vendors are demanding a single server for their application for peak performance. And, if you’ve got multiple applications that require isolation, your infrastructure is unnecessarily taking up space and revenue.
With a traditional infrastructure, the costs of hardware, software, and maintenance add up fast. A slightly larger upfront investment in virtualization and cloud computing services can allow for continued growth with very little additional expense in the long run.
With proper design and deployment, server virtualization makes managing multiple servers easy and efficient. It also gives you exponential flexibility, making it a must have for any small, medium or large business – especially if you want room for that business to grow.
The logical extension of server virtualization is desktop virtualization, which extends your infrastructure beyond the server. Because of the advancements in both hardware and virtualization software, desktop virtualization today can deliver the same user experiences as a full PC. However, you get a lower “Total Cost of Ownership,” quick deployment and better, more facile management tools.
Cloud Computing Services
With Cloud Computing you can further the efficiency of your IT – but only if you do it right. Microsoft, Google, Amazon and School Depot all have offerings for you to ‘easily’ enter the world of the cloud, but you need someone who has deep expertise in the technology and understands your business to help you make it work for you.
