Virtualisation is an effective way to reduce IT expenses while boosting efficiency and agility, not just for large enterprises, but for small and mid-size businesses too. It allows you to consolidate your existing IT infrastructure into fewer physical machines, and supports industry-standard operating systems.

Your IT infrastructure gains increased agility and efficiency, while at the same time becomes easier to manage and monitor.

Virtualisation brings dramatic benefits. Physical servers become up to 80% more utilised, and operating costs are reduced by a consolidation ratio of 10:1 or greater.

Capital and operational costs are halved, with proven savings of over £1,000 per server virtualised.

Virtual servers are robust, and mission-critical servers can be made highly available at an affordable price.
 
New applications and services can be deployed rapidly, without the need to buy new hardware, and run in isolation to each other reducing the threat of compatibility issues.

Virtual machines can be cloned or deployed from a template, making the process of deploying a new server extremely fast.

By choosing enterprise-class software licensing, new virtual servers can be commissioned without any additional cost.
 
Desktop Virtualisation takes the principle of server virtualisation and applies it to desktop operating systems such as Windows 7, opening up a world of possibilities, such as remote and mobile device access.

PC and laptop hardware refresh costs can be reduced by implementing thin terminal devices, or by allowing staff to use their own equipment.

The virtual desktop environment can be secured using 3rd party two-factor authentication tokens.
