  • Virtual Server Hosting

    1. 1. Virtual Server Hosting Service <br />
    2. 2. Why Server Virtualisation?<br />Reduce costs by consolidating hardware and increasing server utilisation<br />Increase utilisation from 10-15% to 80%<br />Reduce H/W requirements at least 10:1<br />Reduce H/W and operating costs<br />Improve infrastructure management<br />Accelerate provisioning time<br />Centrally manage the virtual infrastructure<br />Automate infrastructure management<br />Live virtual machine migration to avoid planned downtime<br />Allocated resources with automatic load balancing<br />
    3. 3. Why Server Virtualisation in the Cloud?<br />Create private cloud <br />Enable server access from anywhere<br />Introduce resilient data centre environment<br />Benefit from physical server resilience<br />Benefit from clustered storage resilience<br />Increased flexibility & higher responsiveness <br />Improved availability and SLA<br />Remain data compliant<br />
    4. 4. Why InTechnology?<br />Storage virtualisation since 2002<br />Network virtualisation since 2003<br />Voice virtualisation since 2006<br />Server virtualisation since 2008<br />Proven experience with managing consolidated infrastructures<br />Capacity and performance management<br />Seamless service upgrades<br />
    5. 5. Why InTechnology’s Virtual Server Hosting?<br />Our virtual servers are based on VMware<br />84% of all virtualised applications in the world run on VMware (Gartner, 2009)<br />In 2009 cloud computing was listed as 14th priority by CIOs whereas in 2010 it’s 2nd<br />The 1st CIO priority is virtualisation<br />The storage underpinning the virtual servers is NetApp and EMC<br />Best of breed technologies<br />Enterprise – class environment<br />
    6. 6. Virtual Server Hosting – Requirements<br />The Virtual Server Hosting service meets these requirements:<br />Consolidate servers and storage<br />Virtualise infrastructure in the cloud<br />Flexible provision of server resources<br />Improve server & application availability<br />Reduce carbon footprint<br />Reduce costs<br />
    7. 7. Virtual Server Hosting – Service Overview <br />Virtual machines run on physical servers located in an InTechnology data centre<br />The virtualisation software abstracts processor, memory, storage and networking resources into multiple virtual machines<br />Delivering greater hardware utilisation and flexibility, performance and scalability<br />Access virtual servers and storage on a pay-as-you-go basis<br />Use InTechnology provided OS templates such as MS Windows or Red Hat Linux OS or upload your own templates<br />
    8. 8. Virtual Server Hosting Features<br />Delivers server and storage capacity that scales seamlessly with demands<br />Flexible resources to meet fluctuating business demands, but on pay-as-you allocate basis<br />Access to capacity as well as performance storage to meet the resource requirement of any application<br />Scalable and flexible resources on demand <br />High availability<br />High performance<br />
    9. 9. Virtual Server Hosting Benefits<br />No need for investment in server, storage or resources<br />Improves server and application availability<br />Predictable and consistent performance<br />Reduces operational costs (people, power and processes) <br />Provides a long-term solution, not a short-term fix<br />Secures business continuity and disaster recovery<br />Reduces carbon footprint<br />
    10. 10. When to use the Virtual Server Hosting Service<br />If you want to centralise any applications– Flexible servers combining capacity storage with performance storage to cater for application specific requirements<br />For short-term IT projects –when no additional capital funding is available.<br />To cater for peak demands - short-term allocation of additional computing power and storage.<br />For DR tests or real DRs – no need to procure and maintain expensive stand-by servers and storage.<br />To assists your research & developmentneeds– Allocate and easily decommission servers for any R&D requirements. <br />
