If your organization hasn't yet implemented any virtualization technologies, it soon will.
WestgateIT support Bristol Install, manage and maintain a dozens of Virtulised servers. However, in addition to servers, desktops, applications, and storage can be virtualized.
Traditional physical Windows-based servers only utilize 5-10% of the underlying hardware capacity and virtualizing them typically allows for consolidation rates of 10:1. That means that one of today’s servers can power up to 10 virtual servers. This allows for tremendous cost savings in terms of consolidating server sprawl and reducing space needed and power consumed and cooling needed. Furthermore, the ability to manually or automatically move virtual servers around allows for a completely new level of business continuity and disaster recovery.
90-95% of your PC resources sit idle at any given time. Desktop virtualization allows you to separate the desktop operating system and all applications from your desktop computer which can reduce the cost of your PC ownership by 40%. All computing processes take place at the server level which is completely transparent to the user, but allows you users to access their needed files and applications across any connection and from any device—even mobile phones.
Application virtualization allows for greater efficiencies by detaching the application from the operating system. This allows for much greater compatibility, manageability and portability of the applications themselves. Applications take up tremendous amount of bandwidth and space on your desktops, but application virtualization allows for programs to be streamed on demand so that applications are not needed to be installed on the host as traditionally done.
