Creating virtual versions of IT hardware or software provides the ability to do more with less – resulting in reduced costs, simplified IT management, and minimised space requirements.
Businesses have never been under more pressure to reduce costs and operate more efficiently. Virtualisation is one of the most effective means for making this happen. It provides powerful, tangible ways to streamline many traditionally time-consuming processes and minimise the resources needed to deploy and manage IT infrastructures.
Having said this, the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) savings opportunity will vary based on industry type, company size, how the individual customer manages their IT infrastructure today and to what extent that they can actually realise savings by reallocating IT support resources, renegotiate 3rd party support contracts and so forth. Depending on the particulars of your IT environment, it is possible to focus on a few areas where savings are most likely to be realised.
We recommend that you engage with 25sevenIT early on to help calculate project costs and potential savings of your virtualisation project. We will carry out an assessment and Proof of Concept to develop a supportable business case which will allow you to start realising savings immediately upon deployment.
Does your business have to deal with any of these common issues?
Increasing server and desktop sprawl
Lack of physical space and increasing power, cooling and maintenance costs in data centers
High business carbon footprint levels
Lack of disaster recovery for core and business critical servers and applications
Administrative overheads for mundane tasks such as deploying new servers, managing desktops or creating test and development environments.
With a correctly designed and planned virtualisation solution from 25sevenIT, these problems can be significantly reduced or even eliminated.
A centralised virtual desktop solution can make significant reductions in operating costs, improve user productivity, and enable easy access to desktops on any device from anywhere. Users can access their virtual desktops and applications across any network and device.
By implementing a desktop virtualisation solution you can reduce desktop management costs by up to 40% by centralising virtual desktops in the datacenter and simplifying the traditional desktop lifecycle.
Server virtualization separates the application from the physical server enabling the consolidation of data and applications onto a single server.Most businesses adopt virtualization for its potential cost benefits, since the technology can provide a rapid ROI (return on investment) through lower management costs and enhanced asset utilization.
Virtual machines can be used to consolidate the workloads of several under-utilized servers, resulting in fewer real-world machines. Associated financial benefits include savings on hardware, management, maintenance and environmental costs.
Reduce Carbon footprint through reducing power consumption, heat dissipation and physical space of servers through virtualisation
Reduce management and administrative costs of your servers, applications and desktop environments by up to 50%
Minimise downtime of servers
Rapid infrastructure provisioning in minutes rather than days.
Centralises applications and data to reduce costs and transforms your IT department into an on-demand service helping the business adapt in an ever changing environment.
Significantly improve utilisation of your servers
Tasks such as system migration, backup and disaster recovery are managed quickly and easily.
Improved security: Virtual machines can be used to offer secure, isolated test beds for evaluating untrusted applications.
