Servers, such as HP’s Proliant range, are incredibly powerful systems. The traditional model of implementing a new physical server to run each individual business application often results in under-utilised hardware and spare capacity. By implementing a Virtual Server environment, it is possible to run several separate servers on the one physical device, therefore making the hardware work harder for your business and reduce the administration and power requirements.
NCS have extensive experience in implementing Virtual Servers, including our own in-house systems.
Windows Server Hyper-V
With Hyper-V, the Microsoft hypervisor-based server virtualization technology, plus flexible licensing policies, it’s now easier than ever to take advantage of the cost savings of virtualization through Windows Server 2012 and 2008R2. This enables you to make the best use of your server hardware investments by consolidating multiple server roles as separate virtual machines (VMs) running on a single physical machine and also efficiently run multiple different operating systems Windows, Linux, and others in parallel, on a single server, and fully leverage the power of x64 computing.
Bring the power of cloud computing to your IT infrastructure with VMware vSphere, the next evolutionary step in IT computing and the most trusted virtualization platform available. Build on a proven virtualization platform as the foundation for private and public clouds, using federation and standards to bridge cloud infrastructures creating a hybrid cloud structure that can respond to your evolving business needs. Reduce your capital and operating costs and increase control over IT infrastructures while preserving the flexibility to choose any OS, application and hardware.
