Server Virtualization and What It Means for South Florida Organizations
Server virtualization helps you get the most out of your hardware. Our IT services team can help you move forward with virtualization to help your business.
Servers are some of the more expensive pieces of hardware you will purchase for your business. It makes sense to try and maximize their potential for your business. At BoomTech, we are experienced in server virtualization – creating smaller virtual servers within an existing server – for businesses of all shapes and sizes. We can help you identify if you would benefit from server virtualization and take you through the process as needed.
Whatever your IT services needs, BoomTech has you covered!
Server Virtualization – What is It?
At its most basic, a server is just a program on a computer that holds applications, files and software in a computer system or over the internet. Typically, servers have needed to be the most powerful computers a business had to handle all of that processing power. They were expensive and complex at the best of times.
Today, servers are still costly and powerful. But with the improvements in processing power and computer technology in general, they have become so powerful that they can function as multiple servers for a business or organization. You just have to partition up the server into multiple virtual servers. Server virtualization is the process of creating virtual servers on your main server. It takes technical know-how to get it done, but once you have it up and running there are a lot of benefits for your business.
Do I Need To Be A Big Business To Bother With Virtualization?
No, not at all. Both smaller organizations and larger organizations can benefit from server virtualization. It is likely to save you some money over time as well as give you more flexibility for your IT infrastructure. Even businesses with just a single server can gain some advantages through server virtualization.
Gain Some Independence from Your Hardware Vendor
One of the more annoying aspects of using a specific vendor’s hardware is that they will insist that you upgrade regularly, even if you don’t really need to. But if you have utilized server virtualization, you don’t have to feel tied down with a specific vendor anymore. You can actually switch between different hardware and even mix hardware without worry. And when they try and tell you to upgrade, you can ignore them – as your IT services team, we can inform you when we think upgrading is necessary. Our recommendations for upgrading are likely to be a lot less frequent than a vendor’s.
Helping You Implement Virtualization
Our goal as your IT team is to help you identify technology solutions that will best serve your business. If you don’t need it, we won’t recommend it. After conducting an audit of your current technology and business needs, we may recommend server virtualization. If we do, we can explain exactly what the process will entail for your business and implement virtualization with your go-ahead. Our handling of the process may include migrating your traditional environment to the virtual one, depending on your needs and preferences.
Ultimately, we want to make the transition as smooth and hassle-free as possible. We always have the goal of causing as little disruption to your current business as necessary to get the job done. And you can depend on us for ongoing support regarding your server virtualization.
