Got questions about VIRTUALISATION? We have the answers!
What is virtualisation?
According to Wikipedia: Virtualisation, in computing, refers to the act of creating a virtual (rather than actual) version of something, including but not limited to a virtual hardware platform, operating system (OS), storage device or network resources.
In layman’s terms, virtualisation is a technology that can help you to do a lot more with very less resources.
How can your business benefit from virtualisation?
- Save energy and go green – Migrate physical servers to virtual machines and consolidate them into fewer physical servers thereby lowering monthly power and cooling costs in the data center.
- Save space – Hardware consolidation also leads to usage of fewer servers, lesser racks and hence lesser floor space required.
- Ease of application deployment – Virtual machine snapshots can be enabled with just a few clicks thereby allowing for easy creation and deployment of base computing environments
- Improved business continuity and disaster recovery – Virtualised servers can be configured to quickly switch over to a set of backup servers (in case of a disaster) without interrupting your users or business.

What kind of virtualisation solutions do we provide?
We provide all kinds of virtualisation solutions:
- Server virtualisation – lets one physical machine to host multiple servers by sharing the resources across multiple environments
- Desktop virtualisation – enables desktop computers to be virtualised and served to users over a network
- Storage virtualisation – lets one physical storage device to act as the logical storage (virtualised partitions of stored data) for many machines
- Network virtualisation – allows creation of virtual networks within or across network subnets
