Virtualisation is a system which creates virtual versions of a computer so that multiple instances can co-exist on one eco system. It is effectively the process of turning physical items in to software based alternatives. There is less hardware to maintain and support reducing operational costs. It will also allows a greater degree of integration than there can be between certain hardware devices.
Fusion Systems provide multiple solutions for virtualisation using Hyper-V and VMWare technologies.
If you have multiple servers, Fusion Systems can help consolidate these into 1 or 2 physical systems, thus reducing the total cost of ownership.
Using a virtual system helps scale applications and operating systems. It does this by means of controlling processing power and memory, allocating more resource when and as required. Having multiple virtual systems can provide live cluster failover; if one of the pair fails due to catastrophic failure the other will continue running. It also allows you to run multiple operating systems on the same hardware. This is not only cost effective but also enables you to prolong the life of legacy applications without maintaining the end of life hardware.
Fusion Systems can provide you with the knowledge and expertise to provide virtualisation within your environment.
