Why Virtualise Servers?

Virtualisation enables companies to run multiple operating systems and applications on the same server by provisioning virtual machines and making the most of the available resources.

Faster Server Provisioning

Server virtualisation enables flexible capacity to provide system provisioning and deployment instantly, without having to over-provision servers to meet all application demands.

Improved Server Redundancy 

Distributing server resources via multiple virtual machines means that any system crash or failure is contained to that machine only and does not affect the others. Having all resources running on one server that leaves the business severely affected in case of malfunctions.

Reduced Server Downtime 

Moving servers from one host to another can cost significant business downtime. Virtualisation creates multiple virtual machines that also give you the possibility to switch hosts resources with no downtime.

Extended Application Life 

Server virtualisation can extend the life of legacy and older applications. Businesses seldom move these apps from their existing servers due to resource allocation and other complications that may arise with the transfer.

Reduced Data Centre Footprint

Virtualising your servers can drastically reduce your data centre footprint and the number of physical servers needed to run and maintain your operations and data storage. It means your business will save on networking infrastructure and improve its available floor space.

Cost and Energy Savings

Business can cut monthly costs with energy and power by moving physical servers over to virtual machines and consolidating them onto fewer physical servers. Virtualisation not only saves money; it can reduce the overall environmental impact of your business.
