Transform your Business with Virtualization

What is Virtualization?

Virtualization is a proven software technology that is rapidly transforming the IT landscape and fundamentally changing the way that people compute. Today's powerful x86 computer hardware was designed to run a single operating system and a single application. This leaves most machines vastly underutilized. Virtualization lets you run multiple virtual machines on a single physical machine, sharing the resources of that single computer across multiple environments. Different virtual machines can run different operating systems and multiple applications on the same physical computer. While others are leaping aboard the virtualization bandwagon now, VMware is the market leader in virtualization. VMware technology is production-proven, used by more than 130,000 customers, including 100% of the Fortune 100.

Virtualization dramatically improves the efficiency and availability of resources and applications in your organization. Internal resources are underutilized under the old "one server, one application" model and IT staff spend an incredible amount of time managing servers. There is an innovative solution to this. An automated datacenter, built on a VMware virtualization platform, lets you respond to market dynamics faster and more efficiently than ever before. VMware Infrastructure delivers resources, applications—even servers—when and where they're needed. Our TechnologyUS customers typically save 50-70% on overall IT costs by consolidating their resource pools and delivering highly available machines with VMware Infrastructure.

  • Run multiple operating systems on a single computer including Windows, Linux and more.
  • Let your Mac run Windows creating a virtual PC environment for all your Windows applications.
  • Reduce capital costs by increasing energy efficiency and requiring less hardware and increasing your server to admin ratio.
  • Ensure your enterprise applications perform with the highest availability and performance.
  • Build up business continuity through improved disaster recovery solutions and deliver high availability throughout the datacenter.
  • Improve enterprise desktop management & control with faster deployment of desktops and fewer support calls due to application conflicts.

How Does Virtualization Work?

VMWare

The VMware virtualization platform is built on a business-ready architecture. Use software such as VMware Infrastructure and VMware ESXi (a free download) to transform or "virtualize" the hardware resources of an x86-based computer—including the CPU, RAM, hard disk and network controller—to create a fully functional virtual machine that can run its own operating system and applications just like a "real" computer. Each virtual machine contains a complete system, eliminating potential conflicts. VMware virtualization works by inserting a thin layer of software directly on the computer hardware or on a host operating system. This contains a virtual machine monitor or "hypervisor" that allocates hardware resources dynamically and transparently. Multiple operating systems run concurrently on a single physical computer and share hardware resources with each other. By encapsulating an entire machine, including CPU, memory, operating system, and network devices, a virtual machine is completely compatible with all standard x86 operating systems, applications, and device drivers. You can safely run several operating systems and applications at the same time on a single computer, with each having access to the resources it needs when it needs them.

Manage your Resources with the Lowest TCO

It's not just virtualization that's important. You need the management tools to run those machines and the ability to run the wide selection of applications and infrastructure services your business depends on. VMware lets you increase service availability while eliminating error-prone manual tasks. IT operations are more efficient and effective with VMware virtualization. Your staff will handle double or triple the number of servers, giving users access to the services they need while retaining centralized control. Deliver built-in availability, security, and performance across the board, from the desktop to the datacenter.

Choosing a Virtualization Solution

Now that you understand the value of a virtual infrastructure for your organization, it is time to look at how to choose a virtualization solution. What factors are most important when picking between vendors? When selecting a vendor to work with experience is what matters most. TechnologyUS has completed many successful virtualization projects and is considered the "go to company" for this service.

From working with analysts, customers, and partners, it is apparent that companies need a solution that meets ALL of the following requirements:

  • Is built on a robust, proven foundation
  • Delivers a platform for shared IT services
  • Provides a complete solution for virtualization management
  • Supports your entire IT infrastructure
  • Is proven across tens of thousands of customer deployments.

As you'll see, it quickly becomes clear that only VMware delivers on all of these important requirements. And best of all, VMware delivers while providing low total-cost-of-ownership (TCO).
