Virtualisation enables multiple virtual servers to run on a physical piece of hardware. By consolidating your servers with virtualisation you can achieve many benefits:
- Fewer physical servers required – which means less cooling, less energy usage, and lower running costs.
- Increased reliability and redundancy with shared storage and high availability options – which means less downtime and easier management of your servers.
- Quickly and easily bring additional servers online for testing and development – no need for extra hardware when you need to test or develop new systems, allow your virtual hosts to pick up the workload.
- Isolate and secure those complex and critical applications – those important applications can be run as separate virtual machines, giving you increased control, availability and backup flexibility.
- Desktop Virtualisation – reduce your energy costs and network complexity even further by delivering virtualised desktops and applications to your users.
As well as providing you with a scalable, secure, and reliable platform, virtualisation provides the basis for significant energy savings, enabling you to lower your server running costs and IT energy expenditure.
