Services > Virtualisation


Virtualisation lets one server do the job of many computers, by sharing the resources of a single computer across multiple environments.

Installing traditional physical servers would typically require a separate server for each server role. By utilising virtual server technology (Microsoft's HyperV or VMWare, for example), the number of physical servers can be greatly reduced as virtual servers are consolidated on to fewer incidences of physical hardware.

Virtualising servers will result in improved resource utilisation as well as reductions in real estate, power and cooling requirements. In addition to energy saving and lower capital expenses due to more efficient use of hardware resources, virtualisation provides high availability of resources, increased security, and improved disaster recovery processes.

A virtualised platform is highly scalable, meaning that adding additional virtual servers as your company grows does not incur the same project, labour or capital costs as adding additional physical servers. In addition, organisations that deploy a virtualised environment will also reduce their energy consumption (and thereby reduce their carbon footprint) and improve the effectiveness of their disaster recovery plan.

  • Consolidation - Utilises less space, less power, less hardware
  • Cost control - Reduces capital costs and management costs through less hardware and administration
  • Efficiency - Deliver applications in a highly efficient and scalable way
  • Resilience - Inherent benefits of virtualisation include high availability and business continuity
  • Green IT - Improve energy efficiency and reduce your carbon footprint
  • Scalability - A virtualised infrastructure that can grow as your business does
