What is Virtualization?
Virtualization is a method of running multiple, independent virtual operating systems on a single physical computer. Ultimately, it maximizes your physical resources. This technology provides a means of achieving higher server density, lowering costs, reducing the amount of hardware that needs support, and minimizing downtime, as there are fewer servers to maintain.
Virtual Desktop Computing
Desktop virtualization allows users to access their desktops from anywhere, at anytime, and on any computer. Employees can have full access to their office desktop from multiple devices, such as their home PC, an iPad or tablet, or even a smart phone. Easy access to a virtual desktop allows staff to be more productive.
Since everything is centrally stored, managed and secured, virtual desktops eliminate the need to install, update or patch applications, back-up files and scan for viruses on individual devices. Desktop virtualization also helps to streamline the management of software assets. Companies often turn to virtual desktops to eliminate the costs of managing and maintaining PC hardware and software.
Our virtualization services can help you:
- Protect Your Data
Redundancy, redundancy, redundancy: it's important that data is not residing on only a single server. Each type of virtual server should be put on at least two physical servers, allowing for complete redundancy. So, when a single server fails or needs maintenance, the second server automatically and seamlessly kicks in.
- Make the Move
Migration to a virtual server is quick and easy with the "physical to virtual" tools provided by Brave River's virtualization solution – there’s no need to rebuild or reconfigure.
- Plan for Disasters
Virtualization images can be used to instantly recover all of your servers – essentially acting as a disaster recovery plan. Active Directories and Exchange servers can be recovered in under an hour by rebuilding the virtual server from the "physical to virtual" disk image.
- Reduce Costs
Your annual hardware maintenance costs on old server based hardware will be eliminated and will likely be enough to pay for all of the new hardware - an investment that virtually pays for itself.
