The Benefits of Virtualization for Business

Posted on June 18th 2014


With the amount of organizations wanting to  “Go Green”, be more efficient and save money increasing, as does the demand for server virtualisation.

Virtualisation, in simple terms, is migrating physical servers to virtual machines and consolidating them onto far fewer physical servers means lowering monthly power and cooling costs in the data center.

The benefits of this process include:

  1. Being more environmentally friendly! Virtualization saves time, money, energy, and reduces your company’s carbon footprint.
  2. Make the most of your existing resources – pool your infrastructure resources and break the  methodology of “one application per server”.
  3. Reduce infrastructure costs by reducing the number of physical servers your company has to support. Fewer servers means lesser power requirements.
  4. Increase the availability of your hardware for business data redundancy. Securely backup your entire infrastructure more rapidly and easily as virtualised servers consist of a few files that can easily be backed up.
  5. Improve business operations- deploy new servers faster, prep and provision user desktops in a fraction of the time that it used to take.
