More often than NOT Businesses Virtualize Their IT In Some Way, Are You?
POSTED BY APPANNA GANAPATHY
Technology solutions for any sized business can be complex, which is why simplification should be top of mind for many executives. In this way, virtualization is a key tool assisting many organizations to make their IT easier to manage.
A virtual network will be hosted in a data center environment and deployed via cloud computing, making access easier without all of the complicated wiring. Adding users becomes easier, without the need for hardware cabling and setup, which makes scalability easier. Virtualization services are so popular that a large percentage of businesses are using some kind of virtualization, be it for storage, server hosting, or virtual desktop infrastructure.
Implementing virtualization to your current IT infrastructure has many benefits. One of which mentioned above, and that is that your infrastructure will be simplified, meaning that you won’t have to manage as much hardware. Meaning less threats such as hardware failure or damage, provided your virtual infrastructure is hosted off-site.
Another benefit mentioned earlier is the cost savings from decreased operational costs. Naturally, if you’re running fewer workstations or servers, you’ll be spending less on hardware and maintenance, and if you’re running a virtual desktop infrastructure, you can administer maintenance much more effectively.
