Server Virtualisation

Reduce Costs by Consolidating Hardware and Increasing Server Utilisation.

Our server virtualisation services can help your organisation improve use of existing resources – and reduce your associated datacentre costs.

  • Increase utilisation of existing hardware up to 80%
  • Reduce hardware requirements by up to 90%
  • Reduce hardware and operating costs by as much as 50% and energy costs by 80%, saving around £1,000 per year for every server workload virtualised
  • Slash the length of time it takes to provision a server by up to 70%
  • Avoid prolonged downtime and speed up recovery for disaster recovery plans
  • Provide your technology on demand

Maximise Your Infrastructure

With server virtualisation we can help you achieve far better utilisation of your existing hardware base. As most servers traditionally operate at a fraction of their load capacity, virtualisation can make your infrastructure more efficient.

Operating costs are a major, yet often overlooked, factor in running servers. Power, temperature control, floor space, storage, people and administration are overheads that continually increase. With server virtualisation we help you to dramatically reduce these expenses and provide more freedom in having applications and data delivered independent of hardware type and specification.

Our server virtualisation services provide you with machines containing a complete system, giving you the flexibility to specify a wide range of different dedicated environments on a single server. By running multiple workloads on tuned servers means you can raise the utilisation of a server to up to 80% - and turning your hardware platform into virtualised environment can be done in minutes without disrupting existing services or requiring lengthy downtime.

Reduce Hardware Requirements

The number of servers in a typical datacentre, and plans for lifecycle refresh and replacements, can be vastly scaled down using server virtualisation. Indeed, our work has resulted in the number of physical servers required within organisations by up to 90% - providing optional storage, redundancy or redeployment of spare hardware.  

Cut Hardware & Operating Costs in Half

A reduction in servers means a fall in energy consumption for power and ambient temperature control. These costs can be significant; a typical server can consumer up to £400 per year in electricity, with a standalone air-conditioning unit devouring the same amount.

Such costs, when added to maintenance and admin support, can result in overall costs for running a datacentre falling by nearly £1,000 per server.  With the need to run business systems leaner and more reliably than ever before, such cost savings can give your organisation vital breathing space in delivering a competitive advantage in your market sector.
