We help you maximize your server utilization to save you power usage, data center space and money.
A challenge of IT departments today is maximizing their hardware investment and managing their infrastructure efficiently while also providing support to their growing companies. Server virtualization provides a way to partition the resources of a server so that there can be multiple “virtual servers” that are completely isolated and encapsulated, preventing conflicts between what happens on one virtual server and another.
Multiple virtual servers run on one physical server to maximize utilization, resulting in a space and power savings of about 80%, and freeing up real estate so and postponing indefinitely the need to build or expand the data center. Centralized management of servers, storage and backups is an added benefit that most IT staffs are striving to achieve.
Zion’s three-phase approach helps you find a unified solution for your company and includes Assessment, Solutions Proposal, and Implementation. As a an authorized and certified partner for known industry leaders, our consultants have the cross-platform experience to deliver the best virtualization systems for your business needs.
We begin with an assessment of your IT infrastructure, documenting servers, storage, resource usage, backup, and archiving to blueprint your current environment. Following this phase, our team conducts thorough interviews with members of your IT staff and business team to determine your future goals and long-term business objectives. Our senior consultants analyze all of this information and architect a complete end-to-end solution proposal. Our broad experience combined with our vendor-neutral strategy, provides a streamlined implementation that meets your business needs.
Once the virtual infrastructure is in place, the next logical step is to move to virtual desktops, which greatly simplifies image, software, and patch management. By centralizing applications at your data center, virtual desktops allow you to reduce labor and power usage and enhance security on your systems, resulting in a more efficient and cost-effective data center.
