Virtual Servers Make Sense !
Get more out of your servers with Cumulus server virtualization. With our VMware virtualization solution, your server will only have to deliver the resources required by the application as and when the application needs it. As a result, you will decrease your spending and maximise your IT return on investment.
Concentration of virtual servers in a Data Center will further enhance these benefits!
Why Labgroup has chosen VMware for virtualization ?
While virtualization in general can bring you many advantages, VMware virtualization solutions are built on a robust foundation proven in production environments and chosen by over 250,000 companies, including 100% of the Fortune 100. Built on VMware vSphere, the industry’s most advanced virtualization platform, VMware enables solutions from the desktop to the datacenter, utilizing existing IT investments.
Cumulus server virtualization solutions can be integrated with your overall IT infrastructure and existing management tools. If that’s not enough, by choosing Cumulus virtual servers, you will benefit from lower IT costs while having a technology hedge on your competitors.
> Increase server utilization. This is undoubtedly the main reason to virtualize. Getting the most out of your available computing power to accomplish whatever the task may be, whether it’s creating redundancies or enabling the network to handle more complex.
> Cut down costs by increasing energy efficiency and use less hardware with the consolation of your ICT infrastructure.
> Build up business continuity through improved offsite disaster recovery solutions and deliver high availability across the datacenter. Your servers are safe.
> Increased flexibility: the IT department no longer has to be married to one single platform. You can run multiple operating systems, like Windows and Linux, on the same physical server.
>Improve your Service Level Agreement
Central to virtualization is the Virtual Machine, a tightly isolated software container with an operating system and application inside. Because each Virtual Machine is completely separate and independent, many of them can run simultaneously on a single computer. A thin layer of software called a hypervisor decouples the Virtual Machines from the host, and dynamically allocates computing resources to each Virtual Machine as needed.
To achieve a seamless Cloud Migration Labgroup offers the following options :
Labgroup provides you with all the required access and you are in charge from a to z.
Our Managed Services team builds up your server according to your instructions either from scratch, or with virtualization tools (Physical to Virtual – Bare Metal Restore – …).
Our Virtual Private Servers have a basic configuration and minimal amount of storage allowing you to define precisely the machine that corresponds to your requirement without paying a Euro too much.
Our prices are quoted per month (ex-vat) for a minimum contract duration of 1 year.
Standard Server configuration :
A robust platform of Dell Enterprise grade blade servers provides the underlying hardware layer to our virtual servers. The VMWare Hypervisor provides our virtual platform with the following features: VMotion, Auto Failover, High Availability, Dynamic Resource Allocation, Cluster nodes.
The servers are equipped with:
• Redundant Ethernet connections (load balancing and failover)
• Fiber Channel storage redundant connections
Dynamically upgradable (see provision of extra server) without service loss.
A standard server has:
• 1GB RAM,
• 1 Processor per Virtual Machine,
• 50GB RAID 5 SAS Hard Disk Drive (for larger quantities please consult the Cumulus Storage Services)
The server may be dynamically upgraded without service loss with the following options:
|Additional memory (1 GB RAM)
|Additional CPU (per unit)
|Disaster Recovery Process (VMWare live between the two data center with recovery time objective varying from 2-4-6 hours)
|IT Support services
|Software (Microsoft SPLA, Trendmicro, …)
