As more users of IT are looking to cut costs out of their IT spend a focus should be developed on getting the Virtualization services deliverables to existing and new clients that Microsystem Support can offer.
Standardize Hardware and Software Platforms
Areas for standardisation include:
A wide best in breed solution portfolio to design, implement and support you in standardising and demonstrate a return in your investment, providing a comprehensive review of what can be quickly consolidated or virtualised and still maintain or improve the IT experience of end users.
VMware, Citrix, Veeam, Microsoft Hyper V
Current use includes virtual machines which have no direct correspondence to any real hardware.
Virtual machines are separated into two major categories, based on their use and degree of correspondence to any real machine. A system virtual machine provides a complete system platform which supports the execution of a complete operating system (OS). In contrast, a process virtual machine is designed to run a single program, which means that it supports a single process. An essential characteristic of a virtual machine is that the software running inside is limited to the resources and abstractions provided by the virtual machineâ€”it cannot break out of its virtual world.
The main advantages of system VMs are:
Multiple VMs each running their own operating system (called guest operating system) are frequently used in server consolidation, where different services that used to run on individual machines in order to avoid interference are instead run in separate VMs on the same physical machine. This use is frequently called quality-of-service isolation (QoS isolation).
Our portfolio of products and solutions spans several technologies both at the hardware and software level. We adopt these technologies by carefully researching competing products and selecting partners that are technologically advanced and well established. We also insure that our sales and systems architects continuously refresh their training to deliver these solutions. In addition to our well established Assessments and Enterprise class Server and Storage solutions, our Data Protection and Recovery practice has significantly evolved over the past few years and is pivotal to the IT solutions that we propose to our clients.
