How to Use Virtualization to Save Money for Your Company
CEC Sales – Thursday, April 18, 2013
While many outsourced IT support companies may offer virtualization services, few companies actually understand the benefits of this growing technology. Virtualization is often overlooked by small businesses, but if implemented correctly can save companies big money. There are several advantages to virtualization which are listed below:
Virtualization allows you and your company to operate more efficiently, whichmean significant savings for your company. Virtualization allows outsourced IT support companies to setup multiple servers using a single machine, which is both cost effective and energy efficient.
Easy Provisioning of New Servers
Many companies are including virtualization in their computer services in San Jose because of the easy scalability. As your business grows, it is easy to add new servers through virtualization. This can be done with very little added cost which is much different than in the past where it was both expensive and labor intensive to add additional servers to your business network.
Backups Made Easy
Most of the virtualization solutions offered allow for companies to quickly restore data that has been lost due to server failure. This makes it much easier for companies to recover from a data disaster. Data recovery in San Jose is a serious business and more and more companies are adding virtualization to their suite of services to help with data loss.
One of the most detrimental things that can happen to a company is downtime. As servers age, they usually crash and can cause significant downtime for a growing company. Virtualization allows companies to grow quickly and efficiently reducing downtime significantly. With virtual servers, outsourced IT support companies can quickly provision new servers before hardware issues occur. In the event of hardware failure, virtual servers can be launched in minutes as opposed to the hours that it could take to configure physical servers.
“Approximately 15 years ago our school was experiencing some major computer complications, so we found CEC… they promptly came out and took care of our issues. Over the years, we had some other minor work done by different companies which seemed to create more problems than they solved. So when we have some severe problems earlier this year, we called CEC again and once again were very impressed with how quickly they rescued us. Their technician was very knowledgeable and handled the job from start to finish so we didn’t have to. We highly recommend CEC for any computer service needs, and will not lose their business card this time!”
