Virtualisation is often discussed in the context of large companies, because their IT needs and infrastructures will get the most from a virtualised platform. Given the right conditions, however, small businesses can also benefit from a virtualised environment. Thamestec provides tailored, cost effective Virtual Infrastructure Support that fits your business.
Ask yourself these three questions to find out if your small business is too small for virtualisation.
1. Do you have a robust IT environment?
Virtualisation has many benefits, such as saving businesses time and money when it comes to IT. One of virtualisation’s primary functions is to eliminate the need to use numerous servers to run all the applications a business needs. If your business relies on multiple servers, virtualisation will allow you to consolidate servers, thus streamlining and optimizing your operations. An added benefit is removing the relative complexity of an effective Business Continuity Plan.
2. How will your IT needs change as your business grows?
Another benefit of virtual infrastructure is that it enables businesses to automate tedious tasks that waste the staff’s time. Virtualisation will allow them to better focus their time and efforts on more important matters.
Accordingly, virtual infrastructure allows a business’ IT environment to easily grow as the business does.
3. Is there a virtualisation system that fits your needs?
Because the majority of virtualisation systems cater to large companies and enterprises, some small businesses may not be able to easily find one that fits their unique needs. Nonetheless, virtual infrastructure is attainable even on a small business budget.
Some small-business-friendly virtualisation providers include major players like VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V and Citrix XenServer. VMware is the industry leader of virtualization, but Hyper-V is also attractive to small and medium-size businesses because of its tight integration with the Windows operating system which can offer an extremely cost effective solution.
