The Future is Here
We live in a world where virtualization is quickly becoming the rule rather than the exception. Compared to on-site IT Systems, Virtualization Services offer everything that on-site systems offer, but are more cost-effective, reliable, and secure. Whether your company’s needs have outgrown your current space, or you are replacing older equipment, it’s a good idea to reach out to a reputable IT company to see if virtualization is the right choice for your company.
Have you thought about how much downtime would cost you as a business if your systems failed? Recent studies estimate that one incident can cost tens of thousands of dollars in lost revenue for a small business, not including lost productivity, disruption of communications, or the inability to access critical systems.
Making the decision to go virtual often comes down to capital expenditures; for example, what’s the maintenance, software, hardware and staff costs if I keep my on-site system. Small to mid-size organizations don’t have access to the vast technical backbones and infrastructures powering today’s High-Availability Data Centers with 99.999% availability, but if you opt for a virtual solution through a reputable company, these capabilities will now be at your fingertips.
So how do you decide which Virtualization Service Provider you should be migrating your IT Infrastructure to? Your options are typically the lower-priced, impersonal, ‘Box Store’ mega-giants or a local, highly experienced provider with a deep bench of experience and expertise. The out-of-the-box solution doesn’t provide the one-on-one expertise that a local firm does, one that will customize your virtualization solution to perfectly fit your organization’s business needs.
Using a local provider has multiple benefits for companies looking to ensure the most reliable, secure, and affordable environment. Look for one that houses a Data Center facility with 99.999% availability. During the due diligence process, ensure that the IT platforms your business systems are running on state-of-the art, IT industry-leading systems.
Whether your company’s needs have outgrown your current space, or you are replacing older equipment, contact a reputable IT company to see if virtualization is the right choice for your company.
