Servers & Virtualisation

How will this service help me?

Some schools will have a number of servers, each handling different operations, they usually run at a fraction of their full capability. Virtualisation uses software to simulate the existence of hardware and create a virtual computer system. Doing this allows you to run more than one virtual system and multiple operating systems and applications, all on a single server, cutting the number of physical servers needed and radically reducing power consumption and capital costs.

How we do it

Benefits of Virtualisation

REDUCE SERVER DOWNTIME

Virtual machines can be set up to run across a number of physical servers. So in the event of a physical server failing the virtual machine will still function as normal.

REDUCE PHYSICAL SERVERS

Using server virtualisation, you can maximize the use of server resources and reduce the number of servers required. The result is server consolidation, which improves efficiency and cuts costs.

REDUCE POWER & COOLING REQUIREMENTS

Simply by consolidating your number of physical servers you are drastically reducing the amount of power required to run your network. With less power required there is also less heat generated, so you'll save money on cooling costs too.

MAXIMISE HARDWARE INVESTMENT

Traditionally, IT departments will dedicate an entire server to each workload, for example, some schools may have a server solely for email. As a result, most servers today are extermely under utilised. Virtualisation allows you get more out of each server, making the most of your costly hardware investment.

EASIER BACKUP & DISASTER RECOVERY

Traditional Disaster Recovery is Complex and Slow. Virtualisation allows Encapsulation; meanning that an entire server operating system image, application, data, configurations, and state is now simply stored as a file. In the event of a disaster this file can be used on another host (physical or in the cloud) to get you back up and running.
