Virtualization

Server Virtualization

Server virtualization, that’s old hat isn’t it? Certainly not.

Certainly not. Vmware is still the biggest player and has introduced a cloud based service as well. But there’s also Hyper-V, OpenStack, XenServer and KVM, each of which has its place and can solve customer problems in high value ways. Then there’s the whole new class of HCI (Hyper Converged Infrastructure) and the rapidly emerging Open Converged technologies which are changing the landscape for many customers. At IT Blueprint, we’re up to speed on all of them. We’ll help you choose the technologies that make the most sense for you in the short and long term, and assist with implementation services to ensure smooth start up and operation.
