More and more businesses are increasing efficiency, flexibility and control over their technology through virtualization. Virtualizing your hardware resources can decrease ongoing expenses, improve your backup and disaster recovery solution, lower your energy costs, and save space in your office. To take full advantage, you need a system that’s tailor-made to suit the unique needs of your operations.
The team at Howard Tech will begin by evaluating your existing infrastructure to help you understand how virtualization might bring value to your business. We have clients throughout Maryland in Howard County, Baltimore, Columbia, Ellicott City, Jessup, Hanover, Linthicum, Annapolis, Laurel, Elkridge and Fulton. Virtualization options may used for many elements of your business IT, from storage and server hardware to cloud applications and desktops.
Benefits of Server Virtualization
We’re here to help you determine the right virtualization platform. We have expertise with both VMWare and Hyper-V and are fully vendor-neutral.
Decrease Hardware Expenses
Before virtualization, every server operating system required it’s own physical hardware. In a virtual environment, multiple server operating systems can be run on one physical piece of hardware. This methodology can be applied to line of business applications, desktop operating systems, and more.
With fewer physical devices, you can lower the power and cooling requirements of your office. If your physical infrastructure is robust enough, adding additional virtual machines requires only licensing costs rather than additional hardware.
Improve Disaster Recovery
Depending on your budget and tolerance for downtime, a virtualized environment can drastically reduce recovery time when disaster inevitably strikes.
Speed Up Server Deployment
With existing virtual environments, server deployments can be executed within hours, without the days spent on the installation of a new physical server, and the associated costs.
