Virtualization is proven to help organizations reduce their IT footprint, improve hardware utilization, lower power and cooling requirements, reduce complexity and simplify management. Virtualization also improves IT staff efficiency and enables the rapid deployment of new applications and services.
Despite these proven benefits, server virtualization remains a disruptive technology. According to Gartner, virtualization will impact IT infrastructure and operations for the next several years, dramatically altering data center design and procurement decisions. To be effective, virtualization must be deployed thoughtfully and systematically, with careful consideration of application demands, service-level requirements and long-term growth.
Sigma Solutions can help organizations develop and implement a virtualization strategy that maximizes the benefits of virtualization while minimizing business disruption. Through a comprehensive assessment of the data center environment, Sigma’s engineers can identify servers that are good candidates for consolidation and ensure that performance requirements and cost-containment goals are met.
Sigma can also deploy virtualization management solutions that enable workloads to be moved easily from one virtual workspace to another. In this environment, virtualization not only maximizes resource utilization but provides the flexibility and scalability to meet changing business demands, improves resiliency and enables cost-effective disaster recovery.
