Virtualization

Virtualization is an important and growing trend, and most companies are now incorporating virtual solutions within their IT infrastructures.  You can create a more agile infrastructure, reduce the total cost of IT ownership and minimize downtime with the use of virtualization.  Specific benefits include:

  • Hosting legacy applications
  • Easier software back-up and disaster recovery
  • Reduced test and development costs- you get the most from your hardware, plus improved life cycle management and test coverage
  • Server consolidation
  • Better business continuity- the flexibility of a virtual set-up helps reduce scheduled and unscheduled downtime
  • Being greener: fewer physical servers means a smaller carbon footprint

Virtualization also maximizes utilization and maximizing utilization of servers and consolidation of servers goes hand-in-hand.  You cannot do one without the other.  When servers are consolidated, utilization is maximized.

Citrix | VMWare Managed Services

The Citrix and VMWare Managed Service programs from Versiant are the best in class.  Most managed services programs simply remotley manage and monitor your windows based servers and desktops.  However with our programs VMWare and XenCare we can remotley manage and monitor your Citrix and or VMWare infrastructures.  This means you can have technologies like Citrix XenApp or VMWare ESX/VSphere or both on site and you will no longer need to hire an employee to manage it for you.  Our programs provides a simple, cost-effective way to ensure that Citrix and VMWare enviornments are tuned and maintained according to best practices.  Both the VMCare and XenCare programs offer a great value for your money, because both programs include daily proactive maintenance, scheduled patches, updates and service packs, at no extra cost.
