Virtualization and Cloud Solutions

More and more servers are being virtualized. Whether to deliver a fail over recovery, or to virtualize a data center to leverage hardware investment, GigaKOM can help.

Today, IT infrastructure organizations are working hard to solve the problems created by the explosion in technology in regards to the scope and complexity of IT platforms adopted in the 1990s. The migration of application architectures to thin-client multi-tier architectures, the rapid introduction of four generations and multiple editions of Microsoft® Windows® servers and the growth of Linux® have swept across IT organizations dramatically over the last ten years. These waves caused explosive growth in server counts, network complexity and storage volumes throughout geographically distributed IT organizations. The policies and procedures adopted to gain back control of the infrastructure have often introduced their own challenges. Some of the resulting symptoms reported by IT organizations include:

  • Large numbers of under-utilized one-application for one box servers.
  • Pervasive over-provisioning caused by policies that size all servers for worstcase workload scenarios.
  • Restricted scheduled downtime resulting in inadequate maintenance activities.
  • Patch roll outs that break application functionality or performance because the patch-testing systems do not match production systems

Benefits

Save Money  - Reduce hardware and operating costs by as much as 50% and energy costs by 80%.

Save Time - Reduce the time it takes to provision new servers by up to 70%.

Assurance - Decrease downtime and improve reliability with business continuity and built-in data disaster recovery.

Top 5 Reasons to Adopt Virtualization 

  1. Get more out of your existing resources: Pool common infrastructure resources and break the legacy “one application to one server” model with server consolidation.

  2. Reduce datacenter costs by reducing your physical infrastructure and improving your server to admin ratio: Fewer servers and related IT hardware means reduced real estate and reduced power and cooling requirements. Better management tools let you improve your server to admin ratio so personnel requirements are reduced as well.

  3. Increase availability of hardware and applications for improved business continuity: Securely backup and migrate entire virtual environments with no interruption in service. Eliminate planned downtime and recover immediately from unplanned issues.

  4. Gain operational flexibility: Respond to market changes with dynamic resource management, faster server provisioning and improved desktop and application deployment.

  5. Improve desktop manageability and security: Deploy, manage and monitor secure desktop environments that users can access locally or remotely, with or without a network connection, on almost any standard desktop, laptop or tablet PC.
