9 Benefits of Virtualization

2019-07-09T19:28:29-05:00March 23rd, 2018|Tags: , , , , |

Virtualization helps businesses improve operations and decrease spending. Learn about the benefits of a virtual environment and decide if this technology is right for your business. What is virtualization? Virtualization is the process of creating a simulated virtual version of something such as a server, storage device, network, or operating system. This is done by partitioning a single physical machine into several virtual machines which can then interact independently and run different operating systems and applications.

Virtualization is more than just a buzzword; this technology is the most effective way to reduce IT expenses while increasing efficiency and agility. Businesses of all sizes are reaping the benefits of virtualization and we are seeing more and more companies requesting assistance in creating a virtual environment. Check out these nine ways your business can benefit from a virtual infrastructure: reduced spending Companies spend a significant portion of their IT budget on hardware every year, with the majority spend allocated to multiple servers. Virtualization reduces the number of servers needed as well as extending the lifespan of existing hardware. Many servers are grossly underutilized, using only an estimated 5-15% of their actual capacity. This is because many applications require their own server, which without virtualization means many more physical machines. A single physical server can run approximately 16 virtual servers, allowing companies to considerably reduce hardware and software costs. In addition to reducing [...]

The ASCII IT Success Summits are a series of conferences held around the U.S. geared towards helping Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to grow their businesses, offer additional services, help their customers transition to the cloud, and increase monthly recurring revenue opportunities. All nine summits offer a similar agenda to ensure that attendees receive the same valued information no matter which event they attend. Here’s our recap: Notes from the Conference Floor ASCII kicked off on Wednesday with a networking breakfast with about 200 member and non-members in attendance. After breakfast attendees headed to the first presentation of the day, “Lessons From the Field: Hurricane Harvey – What MSPs May Overlook in their Business Continuity Planning". This compelling presentation from Lamar Curtis, President of IAG Business Technology, gave attendees a snapshot of the loss of revenue suffered by companies large and small that were not prepared for disaster. Having been on the ground for Hurricane Harvey, Curtis saw firsthand the devastation and the strain this put on businesses. He detailed out the processes that need to be implemented including notification of employees and "are you safe" communications, as well as how to create opportunities to offer resources to your community and your clients. After a day full of educational presentations for MSP’s, channel partners, and VAR’s the night concluded with a mixer for ASCII Members, non-Members, and event sponsors. Day two opened with [...]
