Virtualization And Cloud Solutions

Companies are adopting Server Virtualization solutions to address their IT productivity and performance issues. Using the latest Server Virtualization from VMware and Microsoft, Dascase can help you to create a flexible, responsive IT infrastructure, aligned with your business needs. Our engineered solutions allow you to:

  • Automated configuration and deployment using virtualization, make it easy for IT and business users to create servers on the fly. In addition, the cost of deploying a new server has been greatly reduced, and there is far less of a need to plan and justify new hardware.
  • Our Virtualization solution allows IT to make changes and deploy new applications or updates more easily and quickly than ever before. VMs can be easily relocated to different hypervisor hosts, and hardware can be added or reconfigured with minimal disruptions.
  • Create multiple virtual machines on a single physical server for maximum cost savings, efficiency, performance and availability. With Virtualization you can prioritize and allocate system resources to the virtual servers without a down time.
  • Server virtualization provides application isolation and removes application compatibility issues by consolidating many of these virtual machines across far fewer physical servers. This also cuts down on server waste by more fully utilizing the physical server resources and by provisioning virtual machines with the exact amount of CPU, memory, and storage resources that it needs.
  • Migrating physical servers over to virtual machines and consolidating them onto far fewer physical servers means lowering monthly power and cooling costs in the data center.
  • Eliminate the cost, complexity and performance issues of an under-utilized or inefficient IT infrastructure. You can better manage costs and improve efficiency based on your business priorities instead of chasing rapidly changing business demands.
  • Align your IT infrastructure with your business objectives, giving you more control over how your company adjusts to this change and, ultimately, achieve greater flexibility and consistency across the IT environment.
  • Virtualization offers an organization the important components required when it comes to building out a disaster recovery solution. Enterprise server virtualization platforms have the capability that can help you automate the failover when a disaster does strike.
  • Enterprise virtualization technology usually offer capabilities such as live migration, storage migration, fault tolerance, high availability, and distributed resource scheduling and will provide you the maximum up-time.

Our Virtualization Solutions help you address the following

Server Consolidation

By consolidating your server hardware, your organization can increase existing hardware utilization from as low as 5 percent to as much as 80 percent. You can also reduce energy consumption by decreasing the number of servers in your data center. Server virtualization can reduce hardware requirements by a 15:1 ratio, enabling you to lessen the environmental impact of your organization’s IT without sacrificing reliability or service levels.

Server and desktop hardware consolidation can also help you achieve 20 to 30 percent lower costs per application, as well as defer data center construction costs by $1,000 per square foot.

Reduce the time it takes to provision new servers by as much as 70 percent. Decrease downtime and improve reliability with business continuity and built-in disaster recovery.

Disaster Recovery

Using the right Server Virtualization approach can provide significant improvements to Disaster Recovery, including cost reductions and increased recovery times. Dascase can assist your organization with building the most appropriate virtualization solution for your unique requirements, all while enabling a good DR strategy. With a virtualized environment, you can failover to the environment which exists in real time, and it’s very easy to failback to the original mode because you can maintain images of your previous environments.

The hardware-agnostic nature of virtualization makes it much easier to quickly recover virtual machines. There is no longer a need to find similar hardware to run VMs; they can now run on any hardware without loading new drivers or changing application configurations to fit the new physical server. Redundant server hardware has historically come at a premium. Organizations only invested in redundant hardware for the most critical applications, and only one application ran on each server.

Now, virtualization enables IT to fully leverage investments in redundant hardware. With modern multi-core, multiprocessor systems, a single server can easily support a dozen or more VMs, allowing more applications to benefit from highly available hardware configurations. It is now becoming easier to automate the site-recovery process, both for testing and for actual failover should a disaster occur. With fewer hardware dependencies, IT now can configure automated coordinated failover using software such as VMware Site Recovery Manager and others.

Before virtualization, the replication of data was performed by expensive mirrored SAN hardware or meticulously configured on a server-by-server basis. With virtualization, replication can be performed at the hypervisor level, providing the same benefit as SAN replication without the added expense and the daunting task of maintaining tight, hardware-compatible control at multiple sites.

Infrastructure & Architecture

Our Virtualization expertise enables us to build a server virtualization architecture that grows with your business needs and technical requirements. How your virtualization infrastructure and architecture is built will determine whether your virtualized environment helps you consolidate physical servers, space, reduce costs and improve resource utilization or whether it suffers from performance problems, virtual machine security risks, virtualization licensing and other management issues. From the server hardware, operating systems and networking components to virtual systems management tools, your virtualized environment has certain requirements to ensure virtual machine performance, system uptime, and Virtual Machine security and compliance. Whether you’re building a private cloud or developing an environment for a public cloud, Dascase has the tools, resources, and skills needed to effectively design and architect your virtualization environment for these requirements.

Cloud Computing

What is the cloud? Where is the cloud? Are we in the cloud now? These are all questions you’ve probably heard or even asked yourself. The term “cloud computing” is everywhere.

In the simplest terms, cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer’s hard drive. Whether you are running applications that share photos to millions of mobile users or you’re supporting the critical operations of your business, the cloud provides rapid access to flexible and low cost IT resources. With cloud computing, you don’t need to make large upfront investments in hardware and spend a lot of time on the heavy lifting of managing that hardware. Instead, you can provision exactly the right type and size of computing resources you need to power your newest bright idea or operate your IT department. You can access as many resources as you need, almost instantly, and only pay for what you use.

Cloud Computing provides a simple way to access servers, storage, databases and a broad set of application services over the Internet. Cloud Computing providers such as Amazon Web Services and VMware own and maintain the network-connected hardware required for these application services, while you provision and use what you need via a web application.

By using cloud computing, you can achieve a lower variable cost than you can get on your own. Because usage from hundreds of thousands of customers are aggregated in the cloud, providers such as Amazon Web Services and VCloud Air can achieve higher economies of scale which translates into lower pay as you go prices. In a cloud computing environment, new IT resources are only ever a click away, which means you reduce the time it takes to make those resources available to your developers from weeks to just minutes. This result in a dramatic increase in agility for the organization, since the cost and time it takes to experiment and develop is significantly lower.

Focus on projects that differentiate your business, not the infrastructure. Cloud computing lets you focus on your own customers, rather than on the heavy lifting of racking, stacking and powering servers.

Key benefits of adopting cloud services:

  • Be more productive, mobile, agile, and focused
  • Easy access from any device, anywhere all you need is Internet access
  • No large capital investments; pay for what you use, when you use it
  • Easy to use, easy to implement, and easy to try with no need for a large IT staff
