Through 2010 virtualisation and cloud hosting was the talk of industries across the UK.
With the economy becoming a little more solid, businesses in 2011 through 2012 will be looking more and more at new initiatives for money saving, with higher spending budgets for operating systems, servers, hardware, and software.
Virtualisation is creating a buzz. It’s a flexible way for businesses to work; it’s greener so healthier for the environment than physical servers; reduces operating costs therefore can save energy, provided the entire server is shutdown (not just a percentage of it); improves risk of downtime so improves chances of rapid disaster recovery; and even saves space – but is it just a new ‘trend’?
Upgrading systems to a virtualisation infrastructure really isn’t just hype in our book, and many others’. It brings businesses large and small, on-demand services with direct access to the companies software and communications whilst remaining secure.
Allowing companies to expand with minimum expenditure is why the amount of business changing their infrastructure to a virtual one is set to rise over the next couple of years.
