No More Downtime
One of the salesmen near you is in the middle of creating a quote, your bookkeeper is trying to complete reconciliation, your assistant is looking up a customer order, every cubicle is buzzing, and then suddenly everything goes down at once. Your business grinds to a halt. No one can make a sale or access a single file. Why? Because your server went down.
Eliminate the possibility of server downtime with virtualization.
Virtualization is most ideal for any organization or business with a large number of workstations, or medium to large businesses who are reliant on proprietary software that requires an older operating system.
For those who are using software that requires an outdated operating system, virtualization creates the opportunity for you to continue to upgrade your system as new technology becomes available. This means you can utilize the speed and stability that comes with updated operating systems without losing access to the programs and applications that are vital to your business.
Have you ever heard of partitioning a hard drive? Partitioning a hard drive is like splitting a large room in half and placing a wall between the two halves. In information systems, this partitioning of a hard drive allows the user to access only one part of the divided hard drive at a time. Virtualization acts much the same, but the partitions are a server-level operation.
Imagine now that the room has been split into three equal parts, and each space has the same furniture, carpet, accent pillows, and throw rugs. Virtualization can be setup to be home to duplicate copies of operating systems, information, files, and applications.
Now let’s say that each section of the room that is split into three parts has its own locked door and weather-proofed partitions. If section A’s roof springs a leak and damages that section, then section B and C are still intact. A virtualized network can work the same way. If one section of your server goes down, then all traffic can be diverted to the other sections, eliminating downtime.
By carrying duplicate files, applications, and more in each section, you’re also protecting your information against data loss potential.
