Virtualization is the practice of consolidating multiple hardware-based single Operating System (OS) servers onto one host (Hypervisor) and virtualizing them. Hypervisors allow companies to pool their hardware resources, which allows for a more efficient use of these resources. Having an efficient, flexible, scalable and reliable IT environment is more than an option, it’s become a necessity for corporations who wish to remain competitive. Consolidating your servers, networking hardware and storage have the following benefits:
- Server consolidation
- Lowers cooling and power costs
- Improves asset utilization
- Improves manageability
- Lowers total cost of ownership
- Greater business continuity and disaster recovery
We work with the industry leading virtualization vendor in the field, VMware, in order to bring you the solutions your organization needs.
VMware clustering allows for a continuous availbility with zero downtime and zero data loss. VMware fault tolerance technology allows for instantaneous failover from primary Virtual Machine to secondary Virtual Machine in case of hypervisor failure.
VMware vMotion technology allows for a seamless migration of Virtual Servers between hypervisors or storages even between datacenters with zero downtime and zero data loss.
Unified command console, VMware vCenter Server, makes it easy to manage all your hypervisors and servers from a single interface, including performance monitoring, event and performance management and much more. It also allows for operations automation capabilities such as guided remediation, capacity optimization to optimize resource usage and standarts enforcements to enforce compliance.
Virtual networking concept generally consists of Virtual Ethernet Adapters and Virtual Switches. Virtual machines are configured to use one or more virtual Ethernet adapters. Guest OS uses these adapters just like it would a physical adapter, using standart drivers. A Virtual Switch emulates a physical switch by forwarding frames at a data-link layer.
