  • You already know this stuff….but Even in tough environment, companies should still invest in virtualization and must leverage it to be able to ensure cost effective DR Recent analysts research with CIOs in Fortune 1000 companies all agree: virtualization, is the best investment for IT departments in tough economic times. Analyst research show: Companies are aggressively planning to adopt virtualization in 2009 34% of servers to be virtualized within next 12mos (double the 15% virtualized today) 45% of companies expect to virtualize over 30% of their servers, up from 7% today
  • Iland has been around a long time, vast experience in data center solutions and Enterprise level DR. …….. Known for excellent service and flexible customized solutions
  • Wide variety of partners and clients…addressing multiple vertical markets, businesses of all sizes. We can enhance your value prop to your target market…..

  • Physical World: To better understand how these business benefits are delivered via virtualization, let’s talk a little bit about how virtualization works. In the traditional IT stack there was a rigid 1-1 mapping between hardware, an instance of an operating system and a single software application. That rigid model lead to tremendous under-utilization of hardware resources. The industry statistic is that in this traditional model, servers are utilized only 5-15%. This is a huge problem for companies – having a very large pool of resources that stays idle most of the time. it is a picture that CFOs are very unhappy about. But the story doesn't end there – the server sprawl and the associated underutilization of resources have ripple through effects for the entire environment – server sprawl means not only wasted investment in hardware, but also unsustainable power, cooling, and real estate costs. This tremendous complexity means that it is hard to provision new infrastructure and to respond to changing business needs. IT departments are stuck wasting cycles on mundane tasks, and don’t have time to focus on what really matters. For example, in most companies a single sys admin can support only up to 20 servers, and the time for provisioning a new server is often 6-8 weeks. Virtualized World: Virtualization breaks the rigid bond between hardware and software, and allows multiple instances of an operating systems and multiple software applications to run on the same hardware box. In essence, virtualization “bundles” or encapsulates the operating system and a software application into a virtual machine . This entire “package” of virtual hardware - CPU, memory and networking, OS and application, is turned into a single software file. Virtual machines are hardware independent, and because they are files, they can be manipulated with the ease of file copy and paste. Virtual machines bring an entirely new level of efficiency and flexibility to the IT environment. One way to understand the impact of virtualization on the IT industry is to compare it with electronic banking – once the cash money was turned into bytes, it increased the velocity of commerce – money can be moved around the world now with lightening speed – because it is virtual, it is information. By turning physical capabilities into information, virtualization makes provisioning and managing the entire IT infrastructure a lot faster and more flexible.
  • Better Optimize Servers and IT Assets (currently underutilized) this is largely focused on improving server utilization so they can contain the number of servers they’ll have to buy in the future, and reduce capital costs. Typical Servers at 10% to 15% utilization Every new workload requires a new physical server IT environment is too complex , Staff stretched for time Virtualization lets you consolidate and centrally provision, manage and monitor servers, reducing IT costs while increasing the productivity of IT staff. IT staff spend the majority of their time on time-consuming maintenance activities Provisioning new server takes days Many physical servers require lots of maintenance and management time *With Iland’s secure, highly available infrastructure you can streamline and manage your platforms seamlessly. Need for Higher Availability and Disaster Recovery protecting the data and applications that run the business is a big concern for SMBs – Virtualization delivers better levels of security and enables business continuity solutions such as improved disaster recovery, higher levels of availability and simplified backup and recovery. Iland’s specialty is p-v, v-v back up and recovery…..
