Virtualisation has revolutionised the datacentre in recent years, giving companies of all sizes maximum efficiency at a time when their budgets demand it. However, very few businesses are 100% virtualised, so are they really taking advantage of all the benefits it can bring? As cloud technology continues to take giant strides forward, server virtualisation is now accessible to almost everybody – and the benefits just keep on coming.
Whether you are totally new to virtualisation, or you use it every day, you need to be sure that you are truly making the most of it. That’s why we put our ear to the ground to pick out what the industry is saying about virtualisation, and what it can do for you
At a time when customers are demanding more while finance departments need to spend less, server virtualisation is the perfect way to increase efficiency and agility. Staying with the financial benefits, virtualisation can also help you to bring down your existing server costs. Not only are there savings to be made by migrating physical servers to virtual ones – reduced power, cooling and maintenance, to name a few. But you’ll also see a reduction in the resource needed to manage and administer your servers. Put simply, fewer servers = lower operating costs.
There are far reaching business process benefits too, particularly when it comes to the cloud. Server virtualisation is the ideal first step in embracing ‘the cloud’ throughout your company as a whole. As cloud technology continues to evolve and improve, so too does your server capability – and with that your business agility and flexibility.
Last, and absolutely not least, server virtualisation is as green as it gets! Consolidating physical servers to virtual ones means less ‘kit’, fewer racks and ultimately a lower carbon footprint – and in this day and age, who doesn’t want that?
