Virtualization

Virtualisation makes it possible to run multiple operating systems and applications on the same system at the same time, increasing the utilisation and efficiency of new and existing hardware.VMware is the global leader in virtualization solutions from the desktop to the data centre and NETbuilder have invested heavily in developing a strong partner relationship ensuring our employees are fully certified and trained in this technology.Virtualisation has many benefits, including:

  • Energy savings and lower capital expenses due to more efficient use of hardware resources.
  • Increased security due to guest isolation.
  • Rapid provisioning of operating systems and applications.
  • Porting of legacy servers onto newer hardware.

An additional and important benefit is that virtualisation can significantly reduce the costs involved in implementing a disaster recovery solution, either through built-in virtualisation components and third-party software, or a mixture of both.
