Many of our enterprise customers recognise and benefit from virtualisation technologies. Our expertise within the Microsoft portfolio as a Gold Partner enables us to design, implement and support virtualisation across critical enterprise infrastructure.
Microsoft’s comprehensive server virtualisation and management solutions include management capabilities for both physical and virtual environments that cost about a third of VMware’s and other competing products. The arrival of Microsoft Server 2012 further justifies the case for Microsoft as a cost effective virtualisation platform that integrates easily into most enterprises’ IT environments. Our Enterprise customers have told us that training is faster and less expensive as a result and existing management tools can be easily integrated to provide a simpler IT environment that delivers longer term costs and efficiency benefits.
The move towards server virtualisation also impacts across the typical enterprise landscape. Our clients that opt for virtualisation often need to adapt network design, data storage and backup processes. Security consideration or management practices may also need to adapt. Our ability to deliver an end-to-end infrastructure to support virtualisation is a major differentiator for our virtualisation technology group which is able to support single or multiple sites across the UK.
