From start-ups to expansions, small and mid-sized businesses need to achieve efficient, secure data management. Many SMBs have complicated IT environments, using multiple servers for various applications that consume staff and energy resources. System upgrades may result in costly down time and impact productivity.

 

Do you want to achieve cost savings and operational efficiencies including less management time, increased productivity, and improved application availability?

 

If you answered "Yes", then virtualization is for you! As you are probably aware, virtualization creates many "virtual machines" on a single physical server. It allows you to stack multiple applications, create separate environments for patching and upgrades, quickly deploy new applications, and offers live migration, fault tolerance, high-availability, and distributed resource scheduling to keep your business up and running the way it should.

 

It means fewer servers, less networking gear, a smaller number of racks needed, less power consumption, simpler management, and significant cost savings.

 

So how can you get the most out of virtualization?
