More power and efficiency with virtualized server and storage solutions
Extensive server and storage landscapes are neither flexible nor efficient. The solution: integration and virtualization.
The hardware structures are the heart of IT in medium-sized companies. This is where the system software that decides on the performance of the IT system runs the applications that support the business processes, and processes and stores all data that represents an important, often critical aspect of a company's value.
And the demands are constantly growing: Rapidly increasing data volumes and ever stricter legal regulations on data availability, integrity and security (compliance) force us to constantly adapt and expand. But they are often enough "on the fly". Here is a quick link to a web server, as soon as additional memory is installed. For many companies, this development can be seen in crowded server rooms. Not to mention the various storage systems that hold valuable data in many different places.
The resulting lack of clarity leads to performance losses, complex administration, lack of flexibility and excessive costs.
Less is more...
The concept is simple: Two virtualized servers do the things that previously required ten or fifteen servers - a single, consolidated storage system is enough to replace a conglomeration of disparate storage media. The implementation is complex: First of all, a detailed analysis of the status quo must take a close look at the traditional "growth" in the company as well as the demands placed on the performance of corporate IT by business models, business processes and the competitive situation. Afterwards, we as specialists will work out an integrated, consolidated and virtualized hardware solution for you. It allows easy management, reduces costs and ensures flexible, secure business processes.
...if you do it right!
The goal is clear: lower IT costs while improving flexibility, performance and responsiveness.
A virtual infrastructure is basically a matter of separating physical and logical hardware. From a single server device so two, five or ten virtual servers can be made.
This makes a virtual machine independent of the physical resources. On the one hand, this leads to enormous savings in the acquisition and operating costs (electricity, cooling) for the hardware. On the other hand, it allows the flexible, dynamic, on-demand allocation of IT performance for the applications depending on the business needs. This applies to both server and storage systems. This creates a high performance, availability, flexibility, and high level of automation infrastructure using building blocks of affordable, yet high-performance, industry-standard servers.
