Virtualisation


Virtualisation is opening the door to new and fast-evolving business benefits. With Bytes, you can explore them all.

So how far do you want to go? Increasingly, companies are looking to virtualise more of their datacentres to deliver transformation.

With our help, you can reap benefits such as:

  • Improved efficiencies and capex reductions from standardisation, management and virtualisation
  • Greater agility from application delivery automation
  • Additional control over application availability and security using policy-based governance
  • The flexibility to run new and existing applications in multiple platforms and clouds.

Our specialists can help you to find more effective ways to reduce your data centre costs through server virtualisation, together with maximising the benefits of desktop virtualisation.

Our Solutions Team can support your project with:

  • Strong relationships with both traditional virtualisation providers and a raft of exciting complimentary solution providers
  • Vendor independent advice based on your current infrastructure and future plans
  • Expertise in networking, security, data centres and Microsoft technologies enables us to consider all the desktop and server touch-points
  • The ability to address all data protection, backup and recovery considerations within your virtual environment

5 ways to improve your virtualised environments:


Software-defined networking

Vendors such as VMware are now breaking through the limits of traditional physical networking. Virtualising the network layer has many benefits to the organisation. Like a server hypervisor allows the creation of software Virtual Machines, the NSX Network Hypervisor enables the creation of software virtual networks. These can be created, saved, deleted and restored, just like virtual machines but for the network allowing for simplification of complex network rules and ease of deployment. There are big benefits with application deployment speeds, cost savings and security. We'd love to tell you more.

Hyper-converged Infrastructure

If you're in the market to refresh your storage or server platforms, you'll run across the term hyper-converged systems. A hyper-converged infrastructure is largely software-defined with tightly-integrated compute, storage, networking and virtualisation resources. The advantages lie in the simplified architecture and administration. The flexibility and scalability of this platform makes hyper-converged infrastructure an ideal platform for VDI environments. Get in touch with our specialists and we can explain more.

Mobile working

Are you able to address the management and security challenges over BYOD and remote working across a wide variety of devices? If an employee uses a device-native mail application to view and respond to corporate mail, what happens when that device is lost or stolen? With the likes of AirWatch or Citrix XenMobile, organisations can regain control of this data, allowing policy controls of the business application to be enforced. With the right solutions, users can get access to the data and applications needed for business in a consistent, simple and secure manner. Ask us for details.

Infrastructure optimisation and monitoring

The correct tools to monitor and optimise your environment are essential for smooth running — and to demonstrate a return on investment. It’s easy to find yourself with a sprawl of virtual machines and then be unsure which of your machines are over-provisioned or idle. A tool such as vRealise Operations Management by VMware can reclaim this capacity, extending the lifespan of your infrastructure and reducing ongoing costs. You can also explore 'what if' scenarios to examine the impact on your environment, including resources, capacity and performance

Software-defined Data Centre

Software-defined data centre is a vision that is transforming the way businesses look at IT, by commoditising hardware and moving intelligence and control to the software layer by abstracting, pooling and automating resources across the data centre organisations can move to deliver IT-as-a-service, allowing more time and resource for innovation rather than just keeping the lights on. Our expert team can examine the options for you.
