If your organization has not yet implemented any virtualization technologies, it soon will. Core Support exclusively supports WMware Virtualization technologies.

Today, close to 25% of all servers shipped worldwide are virtualized. In addition to servers, desktops, applications and storage can also be virtualized. Benefits of virtualization include:
  • Reduced hardware costs
  • Consolidation of server sprawl 
  • Reduced space needed for storage
  • Decreased power and cooling consumption
  • Increased flexibility with server setup and disaster recovery
  • Less hardware and software to maintain
Traditional physical Windows-based servers utilize only 5-10% of hardware capacity. Virtualizing them typically allows for consolidation rates of 10:1. That means that one of today’s servers can power up to 10 virtual servers. This allows for tremendous cost savings as outlined by the bulleted list above. 

It cannot be overstated – it is less expensive to have several virtualized machines residing on one physical machine than it is to purchase multiple machines. Server room size requirements can be dramatically decreased saving you time and money retrofitting your office space to accommodate a larger server room. Money is saved on electricity required to power multiple machines and on server room cooling bills. Workstation and server maintenance and upgrades, as well as machine replacement, are less expensive with only one physical workstation or server. Because less hardware is needed, businesses can cut their IT budgets significantly. The advantages of server virtualization make it a perfect solution for any sized company. 

Core Support has extensive experience and specializes in virtualization. Core Support technicians will develop a plan that makes virtualization a reality for your company.
