Reduce operational IT costs, lower your environmental impact and improve technical resilience by virtualising your physical server infrastructure. Running multiple operating systems and their associated applications as virtual machines requires less physical servers and simplifies manageability, whilst increasing the efficiency of your overall processing and memory capacity by avoiding the need for expensive underutilised hardware.

Moving from a traditional server environment to a virtual server environment uses less physical servers, takes up less space, utilises less power, emits less heat and therefore requires less cooling. Customers will therefore generally always reduce running costs in a virtual environment when compared with a physical environment. What’s more, on-going support and maintenance costs can be reduced significantly because there is less hardware to support.
Because virtual servers reside on a shared physical infrastructure they are able to dynamically move from host to host in the event of a physical server failure or in order to balance the workload. This can be an automated or manual process allowing increased flexibility in managing server resources.
Improve resilience & manageability
Because virtual servers reside on a shared physical infrastructure they are able to dynamically move from host to host in the event of a physical server failure or in order to balance the workload evenly. This can be an automated or manual process allowing increased flexibility with managing server resources.

How it works
ICT is a significant investment for any business, therefore it is vital that you are confident that your systems are carefully selected, implemented and managed to match your strategic business objectives.
Our Managed Services offer you complete peace of mind for all aspects of your IT infrastructure. Whilst our core focus is on virtualisation and cloud support, we can also manage all of your hardware, software and projects as well, giving you a single point of contact for everything
We analyse the current physical server infrastructure to determine how hard those servers are currently working and how much processing power, memory and storage they really need. Once complete, we can calculate the consolidation ratio and architect a resilient virtual server farm that can run all of those servers as virtual machines on far less physical hardware. Read more in our Server Virtualisation Readiness Assessment profile.
When you are ready, we work together to migrate the physical servers over to virtual machines and you can immediately start to reap the rewards of working on a virtualised infrastructure.
