Network Virtualisations

Network Virtualizations icon

Network virtualisation is a method of combining the available resources in a network by splitting up the available bandwidth into channels, each of which is independent from the others, and each of which can be assigned to a particular server or device in real time.

Benefits

  • Improve productivity;
  • Efficiency;
  • Job satisfaction of the administrator;
  • Performing many of these tasks automatically.

Network virtualisation is intended to optimise network speed, reliability, flexibility, scalability, and security.

Network virtualisation is said to be especially effective in networks that experience sudden, large, and unforeseen surges in usage.

Key Benefits of Virtualisation

Server Consolidation and Infrastructure Optimisation:

Virtualisation makes it possible to achieve significantly higher resource utilisation by pooling common infrastructure resources and breaking the legacy “one application to one server” model.

Physical Infrastructure Cost Reduction:

With virtualisation, you can reduce the number of servers and related IT hardware in the data centre. This leads to reductions in real estate, power and cooling requirements, resulting in significantly lower IT costs.

Improved Operational Flexibility & Responsiveness:

Virtualisation offers a new way of managing IT infrastructure and can help IT administrators spend less time on repetitive tasks such as provisioning,configuration, monitoring and maintenance.

Increased Application Availability & Improved Business Continuity:

Eliminate planned downtime and recover quickly from unplanned outages with the ability to securely backup and migrate entire virtual environments with no interruption in service.

Improved Desktop Manageability & Security:

Deploy, manage and monitor secure desktop environments that end users can access locally or remotely, with or without a network connection, on almost any standard desktop, laptop or tablet PC.
