Virtualisation can increase IT agility, flexibility and scalability while creating significant cost savings. Greater workload mobility, increased performance and availability of resources, automated operations – they’re all benefits of virtualisation that make IT simpler to manage and less costly to own and operate.
Virtualisation brings with it the ability to deploy servers and desktops with the click of a button, run multiple operating systems on one physical machine and divide system resources between virtual machines. Adding additional RAM, Disk or CPU can all be done with the virtual machine running!
Gone are the days of buying a new physical server for every application you need to run, virtualisation not only gives you the ability to run multiple servers or desktops from the same physical server but also gives you the ability to leverage licences in a more cost-effective way.
Virtualising machines means you can recover from unplanned downtime in minutes, this is especially powerful when combined with Virtual cloud services to run workloads in the event of a Disaster.
Features such as High Availability, Load Balancing and Fault Tolerance are standard with virtualisation, this means you are no longer reliant on hardware for availability, workloads can seamlessly be moved from one physical host to another.
