Our clients are looking for ways to improve performance, to add resilience, and to reduce the total cost of ownership of their IT infrastructure. Managed Networks' server virtualisation services can provide all of these.
Server virtualisation allows you to run multiple virtual servers on a single physical server making better use of the performance of the physical hardware.
Dependent on the specification of the hardware, Managed Networks recommends putting up to four virtual servers onto a physical hardware box (more can be added with high-availability clustering). This means you need fewer physical boxes, which means:
- less capital expenditure
- lower power consumption and therefore lower utility bills
- less cooling is required so your air-conditioning requirement is less, again leading to lower utility bills
- a smaller carbon footprint.
Your business continuity is improved because when clustered server virtualisation enables virtual servers to be moved between physical boxes. This means that, should you experience hardware failure of a single physical server, your users will experience only a short period of downtime whilst the virtual server starts up on the other physical server.
Managed Networks is able to draw on more than 10 years' experience in designing server networks to meet your business needs. We work with you to understand your needs, both now and in the future, and then work out the technical solution to meet those needs. We don't expect you to change the way you work to meet the needs of the technology - the technology is designed around the way you work.
