  • On Premise Physical to On Premise Virtual
  • On Premise to Cloud Hosting
  • Company Mergers and Management Buyouts

We can provide the key skills required to migrate data so that the business downtime is kept as close to zero as possible. 

With over 30 years of combined experience, our staff have seen many system migrations and this knowledge has helped our clients businesses are able to keep their doors open to their customers.

Virtualisation

What is virtualisation? Simply put, this means creating a virtual version of a device which does not physically exist but is simulated by specially designed software. So a virtual server is one which shares actual computer space with other virtual servers. As a consequence, it is not necessary to dedicate one or more machines to running server software only and many virtual servers can run side by side on the same computer.

Confused? There’s no need to be; we’re here to help you make a logical and informed decision on the server option that’s right for your business.

Servers are expensive to buy and to run. Although you’ll often be told by software or application providers that you need a dedicated server to run their product in your network, this is almost certainly not the case and can lead to machines being under-utilised; another drain on resource and a cause of extra expense. Wouldn’t it be better to have all the applications you use sharing computer resource and reduce the number of computers required and of course, your IT costs?

Virtualisation services from IT 4 Offices can achieve this for you. Not only will this make sure you get the best return on your investment, if done correctly it will also improve system performance and enable a more straightforward disaster recovery plan for your business.

Here’s a summary of the main benefits:

  • Consolidate Servers: Reducing the number of servers means lower hardware cost, fewer machines to maintain and more free space.
  • Go Green: Fewer servers mean a smaller energy footprint which reduces costs and also benefits the environment.
  • Plan for Disaster: A virtualised server is a great tool to aid disaster recovery and can potentially make the task much easier.

Give us a call. We’ll take a look at your network and advise you on savings you can make by using virtualisation technology.
