5 Reasons to Virtualize Your Data Center


Virtualization can help any business in any industry. To keep it simple, here’s a list of 5 reasons why you should consider virtualizing your business:

5) Greener, Energy Efficient Data Storage

By switching your data to virtual servers, your company doesn’t need to keep those extra servers that take up space and energy. Decreasing energy costs means a greener data center both for the environment and your wallet.

4) Fast Installations

Virtual servers and devices allow speedy installations of server applications and software services. Instead of ordering expensive equipment for new installations, you can configure the information through virtualization management software just by copying an image. This leads to a huge reduction in setup times.

3) Reduction of Overall IT Costs

To sum up the above two points, virtualization decreases overall IT costs. Cuts in energy costs play a role, and having an out-sourced IT team means your company doesn’t need to worry about purchasing the latest technology tools. Technology is always evolving, so trying to keep up gets expensive. Hiring an outside IT team can greatly reduce your technology costs.

2) Less Server Downtime

You get to work and find that all of your servers are down. Now what? If your data is backed up on virtual servers, you can restore your data much quicker and avoid prolonged periods of downtime.

1) Avoid Disasters

Going hand-in-hand with the above point, virtual servers provide a backup and recovery plan. Virtualization is the first step in switching to the cloud. Connecting your data to the cloud provides a backup plan should you experience unexpected data loss or corruption.
