Virtualisation

The best of on-premise and cloud solutions

Virtualisation is the single most effective way to reduce IT expenses while boosting efficiency and agility, not just for large enterprises, but for small and mid-size businesses too. Virtualisation enables you to run multiple operating systems and applications on a single computer using the resource of the hardware server more effectively and reducing the number of physical servers in your estate.

Minimised physical hardware; maximised efficiency

Virtualisation offers the benefits of an on-premise solution with a cloud-based infrastructure.

It’s the creation of virtual versions of your servers which are then run on just one single physical server. This act of consolidation can dramatically reduce hardware costs and means servers can be accessed by users in ways that are unrestricted by physical configuration or geographic location.

In essence, by enabling businesses to reduce the number of servers, virtualisation allows businesses to have a virtual server which helps provide a single software platform to house multiple servers.

Businesses are choosing a virtualised environment for their IT infrastructure to bring down the cost of hardware and also because businesses are now becoming much more environmentally conscious. Power consumption by servers is huge, so consolidating to just one server can radically reduce your carbon footprint and the level of power consumption at your location.

Another huge benefit of investing in virtualised servers, is that they automatically switch power from one server to another if there’s a failure detected, which consistently improves performance and ensures high availability.

We are seeing more and more companies take advantage of virtualisation and use on-premise equipment to handle standard functions, but ultimately store highly sensitive data and employ cloud solutions when they require additional capacity.

“We wanted to move to a fully virtualised environment running the latest available operating systems. With limited internal understanding of virtualisation, we required the successful bidder to have extensive knowledge of this as well as being prepared to share this knowledge with us during the implementation process, which OGL did.”
