Virtualisation

Autonomic & Utility Computing

Green – carbon footprints, Shield – unplanned downtime, Continuity – Disasters

In a recent survey by VMware and Microsoft,Virtualisation is not just for the Fortune 500 anymore. SMBs are rapidly adopting virtualisation and achieving significant benefits in a number of areas. At BlueShield, we are committed towards helping small and medium businesses (SMBs) to understand the benefits their peers are achieving with virtualisation.

The usual goal of Virtualisation is to centralize administrative tasks while improving scalability and workloads. Virtualisation gives you wings to do more of your IT investment and break free from the conventional model of “One App to One Server” approach.

In addition to being more responsive, IT departments in companies that use virtualisation are viewed as being more effective than those that don’t: almost three in four (71%) of SMBs that use virtualisation rate their IT departments as being highly effective, while less than half (45%) who don’t use virtualisation feel their IT departments are highly effective.
