Server Virtualization saves hardware costs, maintenance costs and utility costs. There are several models (in-house, cloud, hybrid) – let us help you decide which is right for your company.
Using modern technologies, like server virtualization, we look for ways to increase network efficiency and increase IT simplicity.
Using modern equipment and techniques we consolidate rooms full of servers to more manageable, efficient server infrastructure. We’ve taken rooms of 20 physical servers down to 2 pieces of hardware running 4 virtual servers – all while increasing performance. The savings in maintenance, equipment and utilities is substantial.
Once the on-premise equipment is streamlined, we’ll look at the benefits of cloud-based storage and hosting. “Cloud” has become an overused buzzword.
Let’s clear that up:
A cloud provider can host your entire software environment and your data on their own servers. A cloud provider can be a data center that provides space for you to place your own servers in. You use their building, their internet connection and their utilities. Since most data centers have redundant power, internet, HVAC and security, you get the benefits of redundancy and security that you typically cannot replicate in your office.
A cloud provider can provide just one service. For example, Microsoft does a great job of hosting email with their Office365 packages. In this environment, you move just your email off of your own equipment and onto Microsoft’s equipment located in Microsoft’s data centers. They offer the same redundancies that a data center offers.
When it comes to Cloud Computing, sometimes a hybrid approach, a mix of a cloud environment and onsite environment, fits the bill for many companies.
