Virtualisation is at the heart of CLOUD Computing and is the first step in making your IT infrastructure as efficient and uniform in delivery. With vast experience in virtualising physical server, ONGC Systems will help you understand the benefits of and implement the processes that are required. Please contact us to talk to an experienced engineer.
In ‘IT Speak’ virtualisation refers to the creation of a virtual (rather than actual/physical) version of something, including virtual computer hardware platforms, operating systems, storage devices, and computer network resources.
The benefits of Virtualisation include:
- Reduce costs (capital, maintenance and operations)
- Increase utilisation of existing hardware
- Reduce environmental impact by saving power and avoiding eco waste
- Save time by simplifying management of system resources
- Leveraging the ability to seamlessly migrate to the CLOUD
- Establish a more resilient and robust ICT infrastructure
- Improved disaster recovery functionality
- Support compliance and historical retrieval
- Provide a fast and cost effective testing platform
- Save on rent by minimising actual IT floor space
- Migrating to Hyper-V
Did you know that Hyper-V has had four times the growth of VMware’s ESX over the past three years? As such, virtual machine migration is an increasing priority for many customers as more and more are exploring and evaluating the Microsoft platform against their existing VMware installed base. Whether it’s virtual to virtual (from one hypervisor to another) or physical to virtual, migration provides a path for consolidation of workloads and services and the foundation for cloud.
Available to assist is the Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter (MVMC) 3.0, a supported, freely available solution for converting VMware-based virtual machines and virtual disks from VMware hosts to Hyper-V hosts and Windows Azure. MVMC 3.0 also enables physical server conversion to Hyper-V virtual machines to assist your virtualisation acceleration.
