Reduce hardware and energy costs with virtual servers.
Combine your multiple existing hardware servers into one new server and save energy costs due to lower power consumption.
Older servers can be ‘cloned’ and kept running inside the new server via virtualisation. Save the hardware costs of replacing multiple servers by combining them into one new server. Machines can be backed up like any other data and so can easily be restored or reset to their starting state if required.
No additional hardware required for multiple servers, so less maintenance and high availability.
Lower power consumption from reduced hardware requirements leads to lower costs.
Incorporate older systems
Virtualisation can be used to take a snapshot of an old legacy machine and keep it running.
Virtual machines are “sandboxed” meaning they cannot break out of their virtual world, which offers security benefits.
• Multiple OS environments can co-exist on the same server, sharing resources while remaining functionally separate.
• Multiple virtual servers can be spread over multiple physical servers to offer hardware “failover”; switching to a reserve server in the event of a failure.
• Virtual servers are easy to deploy for testing purposes or as a temporary server solution.
