Increase Business Agility and Decrease Cost with Virtualization Technologies
Is your business moving as swiftly as possible, or are you still waiting for servers to be rebuilt or reconfigured? Shift to a virtualization model and reduce unnecessary network slowdowns.
There are some relatively abstract concepts in computing that are difficult to define — and even more challenging to implement correctly. Fortunately, server virtualization is a relatively well-understood concept that allows you to create a virtual server within a server, essentially utilizing software to create a barrier that would previously have required spinning up a completely separate server instance. This virtual barrier, also known as a hypervisor, serves to separate the various functions that the physical machine will be performing, helping you more quickly scale your network and fully utilize the expensive server hardware that you already have available. The network architects at Rea & Associates utilizes virtualization technologies as a much more flexible architecture that treats the resources of the physical machine as a pool, allowing you to quickly reconfigure or deploy additional components within the existing framework. Close management of virtual machines (VMs) allows your network administrator to run separate software platforms, reducing overall infrastructure overhead and increasing utilization.
Increasing IT Agility and Resource Efficiency
Technology teams are always looking for ways to boost efficiency, allowing them to move forward more quickly and by using fewer resources. Server virtualization helps ensure that you always have the resources available to keep your business running smoothly, even when there are unexpected loads that need to be balanced across multiple VMs. Administrators are able to configure and deploy applications as services and virtual machines from a template, ensuring that there is a high degree of consistency across your servers as well as reducing the manual touchpoints throughout the process. You’ll also find that proactive virtualization technologies from Rea & Associates allow you to reduce downtime to a minimum, significantly improving overall productivity across the business.
Cost Savings from Virtualization Technologies
It could easily take weeks to bring a traditional server online, from pricing new hardware and placing an order to getting the hardware in place, installing and testing software and hardware configurations. Virtualization provides for more rapid provisioning that can be automated with advanced software tools or built into existing workflows. This allows your technology teams to focus their time on improving operations as opposed to repetitive tasks such as server provisioning. Plus, your business teams will appreciate the speed by which they can scale a project or begin something new, without the standard 5-6 week waiting period for servers before a project can truly begin.
Reduce the overall cost associated with your IT infrastructure and see the value that you will get from the more agile, flexible and scalable solutions associated with virtualization technologies. The professionals at Rea & Associates have years of experience working with organizations of all sizes to create a more extensible environment that is also simpler to operate than the long-established server configurations.
