Virtualisation Solutions

Virtualisation simplifies IT infrastructure so it allows you to do more with less. If you need help on how to prepare your IT infrastructure for the next steps in to virtualisation with inbuilt security, networking and storage options, call us for a free consultation

Virtualisation is the process of creating a software-based (or virtual) representation of something rather than a physical one. Virtualisation can apply to applications, servers, storage, and networks and is the single most effective way to reduce IT expenses while boosting efficiency and agility for all size businesses. It is a proven technology that allows you to run multiple operating systems and applications on the same server at the same time.

Business Benefits of Virtualisation
  • Reduce capital and operating costs.

  • Minimise or eliminate downtime.

  • Increase IT productivity, efficiency, agility and responsiveness.

  • Provision applications and resources faster.

  • Enable business continuity and disaster recovery.

  • Simplify data centre management.

  • Build a true Software-Defined Data Centre.

What We Offer

IT management and business growth can be challenging to most small to medium sized organisations. We can design and build you secure, affordable yet easy to manage solutions so you can stay focused on managing and growing your business.

Server Virtualisation – This is the process of building out a number of physical servers with the view of creating a clustered pool of compute resources ready to run your new virtualised server nodes. Resources are shared amongst the virtual machines (VMs) with each having access to the underlying physical server's computing resources. Server virtualisation also enables faster workload deployment, increased application performance, and higher availability.

 

Network Virtualisation – This is the reproduction of a physical network in software. Network virtualisation presents logical networking devices and services such as; logical ports, switches, routers, firewalls, load balancers and VPNs. Virtual networks offer the same features and guarantees of a physical network with the operational benefits and hardware independence of virtualisation.

Storage Virtualisation – Our virtualised storage solution is very simple to use, yet very powerful. Get up to 100,000 IOPs per host and scale that up to 64 hosts per cluster. Far better than an external storage device. Our solution ensures that data is not lost if a disk, host, network or rack fails and can even tolerate entire site failures with synchronous replication and stretched cluster options.

Desktop Virtualisation- Deploying desktops as a managed service allows you to respond quicker to your changing needs. You can reduce costs and deploy new services by quickly and easily delivering virtualised desktops and applications to your staff, whether they be located at your head office or a remote location.

Server Consolidations and Migration Solutions
 

Generally traditional physical servers operate at less than fifteen percent of capacity. This can lead to physical server sprawl and complexity in your environment. Server virtualisation tackles this wastefulness by allowing multiple servers to run on a single physical server as virtual machines, each with access to the underlying server's computing resources.

Once virtualised the next step is to aggregate a server cluster into a single consolidated resource. This improves overall efficiency and reduces costs further. Thereby enabling faster workload deployment, increased application performance, and higher availability.

Migrating to a virtualised infrastructure as part of a server consolidation program, delivers an immediate return on your investment and enables business benefits now and in the future.

  • Allows reduction in your IT costs by as much as fifty percent and electricity costs by as much as eighty percent.

  • Consolidate your applications onto fewer physical servers to optimise resource utilisation and deliver up to fifty percent savings in capital and operational costs.

  • You can reduce the time it takes to provision new servers by as much as seventy percent.

  • Reduce downtime and improve reliability with business continuity and built-in disaster recovery.

  • IT services delivered on demand and independent of hardware.

 

We can evaluate your current infrastructure and make recommendations on how best to proceed with a migration.

Our Approach to Virtualisation projects:

Discovery:


Evaluating current infrastructure services, process flows, skills, and projected services.
 

Planning & Design:

  • Evaluate areas for virtualisation

  • Ascertain whether any part of current infrastructure cannot be virtualised

  • Evaluate business continuity plan

  • Evaluate security posture

  • Planning for migration and implementation

  • Design migration plan

Implementation:

  • Deployment of new solution

  • Quality Assurance and improvements

  • Test business continuity plan

  • Audit security

  • Handover and skills transfer

Support:

  • After service support and dedicated account manager

 
Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

Having the right IT infrastructure can enable businesses to progress from where they are today, to where they want to be tomorrow. However when organisations use traditional business continuity and disaster recovery methods it can be a continuously challenging, expensive, unreliable and a complex process to protect business-critical applications and data against various causes of downtime.

 

These problems can be eliminated by having the right high availability, data recovery and the disaster recovery solutions. We are experts in delivering affordable and cost effective solutions to any size of business and we can help you with your brand new projects or if you already have systems in place that are too inefficient or costly to maintain.

 

We can assess your environment and offer you custom made solutions to ensure the highest level of availability to your mission critical applications, simplified backup and data recovery. Along with flexible disaster recovery options that suits the needs of different types of data and applications in your IT infrastructure.
