Design and deploy a VMware infrastructure
We offer a full analysis of your current server hardware and provide a virtualisation package that suits your environment. We offer the implementation of VMware vShpere, configuration and support of your VMware infrastructure from a single host to a fully redundant system with SAN storage, high availability and a comprehensive disaster recovery strategy utilising industry best practices.
We also offer:
- Adding of new hosts to existing cluster
- Upgrade existing installations
- Convert existing physical machines to virtual machines
- Project manage new installations
Create a Private Cloud Computing environment
Many companies prefer not to use a ‘public cloud’ solution to host their servers and applications on remote servers due to perceived security risks and a feeling of not being in complete control of their mission critical servers. We can create you a ‘private cloud’ solution within your premises using VMware. This will give you all the benefits of ‘cloud computing’, but within a secure environment that does not rely on any external resources to either maintain or administer your servers. We can also advise on a ‘hybrid cloud’ solution where you have the best of both worlds, hosting some servers in house on a virtual infrastructure but also utilising externally hosted servers for less mission critical applications.
Advantages of a private cloud:
- Retire dedicated servers
Virtualise your existing hardware infrastructure
Most companies currently deploy a number of servers that run different applications from MES and SCADA systems to Exchange and databases. With VMware we can consolidate all these servers running on different hardware to a standard Virtual infrastructure. This means, in many cases, a drastic reduction in the amount of hardware you have to deploy, maintain and upgrade. One of the key benefits to deploying a VMware solution is the fact you can run a number of servers which can be completely different in terms of operating system and the applications they run, all on the same piece of hardware. This not only applies to application servers but to Domain controllers, terminal servers and file servers.
Upgrade your existing VMware installation to a fully redundant load balanced architecture
For companies that currently have a small deployment of VMware that maybe uses only one host and has local host storage we can provide a solution that scales up your current installation to utilise more hosts and separate Sans to store your Virtual machines. This will give your company the infrastructure needed to virtualise more of your current servers and provide the necessary IT resources to future proof your business.
