Virtualisation Overview

Gaining More With Less

The IT challenge is clear - simplify and optimise your infrastructure so that your business can efficiently respond in a cost-effective way. With our extensive portfolio of virtualisation solutions, we can help you build a resilient infrastructure optimised for cost-effectiveness, simplified management and flexibility. We have a team of virtualisation specialists who can help you leverage complementary approaches for:

  • Improving IT asset utilisation.
  • Creating an available and resilient infrastructure.
  • Enabling rapid response to changing business requirements.
  • Employing virtualisation and system-management technologies to increase flexibility and responsiveness.

Virtualisation Infrastructure

By virtualising your infrastructure, you can move away from a vertical approach to a more integrated IT environment. WTL is a leader in virtualisation with the ability to virtualise your infrastructures across not only servers and desktops, but networking and storage devices as well. Virtualisation can help enable benefits such as:

  • Significant cost reductions and increased asset utilisation.
  • Shared infrastructure that leverages common tools and increases business resilience.
  • Increased flexibility through shared resource pools that help mask infrastructure complexity.

Today, virtualisation technology benefits businesses of all sizes. Many WTL clients taking advantage of server and storage virtualisation are small and midsize businesses. They find the improved management and TCO offered by virtualisation to be of particular value.

Infrastructure simplification

Infrastructure simplification adds business value by providing the streamlined framework needed to properly assess and transform your IT infrastructure. By eliminating infrastructure sprawl, you can help increase server and storage utilisation rates significantly, and lower your costs with a common management platform and tooling.

Rapid application deployment

Systems with virtualisation offer you an excellent platform for your application testing and deployment, helping you cut time to market and lower your costs. Virtualisation can help you enable rapid infrastructure provisioning (minutes compared to days). It can help your developers to speed application testing and deployment, enhance collaboration and improve access to infrastructure.

Business resiliency

Virtualisation can help you secure and isolate application workloads and data within your virtual servers and storage devices for easier replication and restoration. This added resiliency can provide you with greater flexibility for maintaining high availability while performing planned maintenance, and in configuring low-cost disaster-recovery solutions.
