Benefits

 

Virtualization is a recommended solution for companies, which brings direct benefits to IT resources, especially due to their increased flexibility. In other words, virtualization allows intelligent resource management: hardware independence and resource isolation, compatibility and simplification of administration, copy, backup, or deployment.

In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the need to introduce virtual systems instead of physical ones due to these cost-cutting benefits through the optimal and efficient use of the physical resources of the physical server (physical machine). Today, virtual machines provide the functionality of one, two or more services on the same physical machine, while a new physical machine for expanding services (a new e-mail, web, telephony, ERP application server ).

Virtual Desktop

As far as desktop virtualization is concerned, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) helps organizations create agile and dynamic infrastructure, enabling them to deploy faster and more securely new capabilities. Among the benefits of VDI, we can remember:

  • Independence of station location
  • Centralized Management
  • Business availability and continuity

In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the need to introduce virtual systems instead of physical ones due to these cost-cutting benefits through the optimal and efficient use of the physical resources of the physical server (physical machine). Today, virtual machines provide the functionality of one, two or more services on the same physical machine, while a new physical machine for expanding services (a new e-mail, web, telephony, ERP application server ).

Reducing the number of physical machines brings many benefits to the company, among them:

  • Better use of existing servers and savings in invested capital
  • More efficient use of the space used in the Data Center
  • Reduce power consumption
  • Simplifying maintenance and associated costs
  • Improving the availability and reliability of services

Server virtualization will increase usage rates, minimize costs, and at the same time provide greater flexibility, an important aspect to have a competitive edge. On the same principle, to consolidate more software components on a smaller number of hardware devices, virtualization can be done across any network area, with solutions for each area.

Among the virtualization technologies currently used, we enumerate VMware vSphere, Citrix Xenserver, Microsoft HyperV, Redhat RHEV, each with its advantages and disadvantages. Among these, Vmware vSphere stands out through its historical stability and flexibility in virtual environment management. Also, Microsoft HyperV has made remarkable progress lately, with the Windows Server 2012 version being comparable to VMware functionality.

Microsoft VDI Solution - Citrix is ​​a desktop virtualization solution that centralizes and offers desktops as a service for users on any authorized device (PC or Thin Client) to provide users with an optimal remote user experience and allows IT departments to take advantage of an integrated management solution through Microsoft-Citrix. This solution is remarkable because it can be efficiently used over the Internet due to low bandwidth consumption.

Our Recommendation

 

Now the IT department reduces time spent on administrative tasks and responds faster to business requirements, application availability improves, infrastructure costs are reduced and, at the same time, the cost of electricity and cooling consumption (in the Data Center) . For virtualization-based infrastructures, we're talking about 60% lower energy consumption, according to experts. To benefit from these benefits, we recommend that you consult a specialist who can offer you the best virtualization solution.
