Why Your Business Should Be Using Virtualization

Why Your Business Should Be Using Virtualization

Virtualization can change a lot for your business. Since you can use multiple types of solutions to expand the way your operations work, virtualization is the perfect strategy to improve your business. But what is virtualization, exactly?

At its roots, virtualization takes a service or solution that your business relies on and abstracts it so that it can be accessed through the cloud or some other location. For examples of virtualization, examine what are called digitized servers and workstations. Virtualization can keep your business from relying so much on expensive hardware. Other opportunities lie in placing your applications or entire data infrastructure in the cloud, allowing for near constant, and ubiquitous access. We want to help your business take full advantage of virtualization to empower your operations.

Here are some of the best ways you can use virtualization to your business’s benefit.

Virtual Cloud Hardware
It’s not out of the ordinary to virtualize servers. This is due to the virtual server not needing the same maintenance or management required of a physical server unit. You can further augment these benefits by virtualizing your hardware through a service provider like MERIT Solutions. This lets your business essentially store your servers on an infrastructure that’s hosted and maintained by seasoned professionals. We can deliver the maintenance needed without the need for an on-site visit. Furthermore, you’ll reduce the costs of operations thanks to removing hardware from your workplace. For example, you won’t need as much air conditioning or electricity to keep your infrastructure intact, which is an advantage in its own right.

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure
Similar to your servers, you can host your desktop infrastructure in a virtual cloud environment where it can be accessed through the Internet. Thin clients allow for this convenience. These are basically desktops that allow you to access resources and applications through the cloud--since they use fewer resources, they are easier on the energy bill. Plus, since they are overall cheaper than a full-blown workstation, they are easier on the budget. Since you’ll be accessing your infrastructure through the cloud, you can access your virtual desktop through any connected computer or laptop, allowing for a more dynamic (and highly customizable) work experience.

Virtual Software
If you store software in the cloud, you can improve how much value you get out of it. This presents a unique opportunity that allows you to access data and applications through the cloud via a mobile app or web browser. This keeps your employees productive regardless of their circumstances, whether they are out of the office or across the country on a business trip.

If you can think it, you can virtualize it. Where does your business want to start? To find out, reach out to MERIT Solutions at (757) 420-5150. your social media marketing partner
