Reasons for Virtualization
All of these operating systems then share the hardware resources of that single server and are able to make use of them in a much more efficient way. This provides a level of flexibility, efficiency, and scalability that was not possible before. Perhaps you’re comfortable with your current setup, and aren’t yet convinced that virtualization is for you. You may be asking yourself, “Why should I consider virtualization?” At ABS, we believe there are three main reasons customers often choose to virtualize something:
- Cost effectiveness
- Increased uptime
Rather than paying thousands of dollars to repair and replace separate servers, you can pay a fraction of the cost to implement virtualization software. With virtualization, your server functions on a sliding scale, making storage increase and scalability a breeze. All the while, you’re avoiding additional hardware costs, increasing the resources available on your server, and saving valuable company time. With virtualization, you can spend less time replacing and repairing hardware, and more time focusing on your work.
Want to learn more? Ask an ABS engineer how virtualization can improve your organization’s workspace or server infrastructure. We have experience virtualizing at all different levels, from 2 servers to 2,000 servers. You can virtualize work stations. You can virtualize storage. There are a ton of options there, and we at ABS have experience in all realms.
