Ready to virtualize your business? (It’s greener too.)
Is your organization seeking to drive down IT costs while increasing overall efficiency? Server and desktop virtualization can drastically reduce operational IT costs while helping you consolidate your IT infrastructure and increase IT efficiency and management processes.
Benefits of server virtualization.
Reducing infrastructure costs is one of the biggest and most obvious benefits of server virtualization. Less hardware is required, so rather than deploying a new server for each of your individual applications, dozens of virtual servers can co-reside on the same server.
For example, if you wanted to consolidate your physical server footprint, server virtualization gives you the ability to ‘image’ some of your physical servers and deploy them as ‘virtual servers’ on a single physical server. In this case, virtualization could result in the removal of physical servers from your server room or data center, bringing you huge cost savings in server parts, hardware maintenance, reduced energy consumption, and lower cooling costs.
Desktop virtualization offers similar benefits as server virtualization, but as its name suggests, it virtualizes your desktop computing environment. Deploying a virtual desktop infrastructure has many other advantages outside of pure cost savings, such as back-office resource centralization. Also known as ‘going thin,’ desktop virtualization eliminates physical desktop support and maintenance tasks and provides a secure and flexible way to deploy and manage desktops and their applications across your entire network.
