Our platforms offer a number of advanced features, which help with business continuity and increased uptime. Live migration services from one physical server to another, hardware fault tolerance, high availability, and distributed resource scheduling. These technologies give the ability to quickly recover from unplanned outages. The ability to quickly and easily move services from one server to another is perhaps one of the greatest single benefits of with far-reaching uses. Even long-distance migrations, such as being able to move services from one site to another no matter the network latency involved.
Faster server provisioning
Imagine being able to provide your business units with near instant-on capacity when a request comes down the chain. Enable elastic capacity to provide system provisioning and deployment at a moment’s notice. You can quickly get services up and running within minutes. Remember that the next time you have to fill out purchase orders, wait for shipping and receiving, and then rack, stack, and cable a physical machine only to spend additional hours waiting for the operating system and applications to complete their installations.
Improve disaster recovery
By consolidating servers down to fewer physical machines, an organization can more easily create an affordable replication site. IT can save money by re-using old or even buying cheaper hardware in the DR site since it rarely gets used. Automate the failover when a disaster does strike. Provide a way to test a disaster recovery failover as well. Imagine being able to actually test and see your failover plan work in reality, rather than hoping and praying that it will work when the time comes.
Save energy, go green
Migrating physical servers over to virtual machines and consolidating them onto far fewer physical servers means lowering monthly power and cooling costs at site.
Reduce the physical server footprint
server consolidation reduce the overall footprint of your entire computing infrastructure. That means far fewer servers, less networking gear, a smaller space needed.
Easily build out a self-contained lab or test environment, operating on its own isolated network. You can see how building something like this would be cost prohibitive with purely physical servers, and in many cases, technologically improbable.
