Professional Services > Virtualization

For several years now, virtualization has been the hottest topic in the IT industry. When virtualization first hit the mainstream in the early 2000s, it revolutionized the server computing world. Whereas once an organization would have purchased and deployed a physical server for each critical workload, virtualization made it possible for a single physical server to consolidate several workloads onto a single box. As a result, chip manufacturers and server hardware vendors took notice and began producing more powerful servers capable of handling more tasks in parallel. Today, it is not uncommon for a single physical server to have in excess of 32 CPU cores and 512 GB of memory while hosting 50 or more running virtual machines. Virtualization technology is a combination of hardware and software. Chip manufacturers such as Intel and AMD provide virtualization capabilities in their processors, and the virtualization software provided by companies such as VMware, Microsoft, Citrix, RedHat, and Oracle leverage these capabilities. The predominant virtualization software solutions available today include VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Citrix XenServer. It is important to note that the concept of virtualization has evolved from its origins in server computing and is now found in other technology areas, including networking.

Virtualization technology continues to be one of the most valuable areas of IT and it offers many benefits to organizations of all sizes. Virtualization has reduced the cost, overhead, and burden of administering a modern IT infrastructure. However, in changing the rules of the game, virtualization has also added a layer of complexity that didn’t exist before. Whether it is the administration of dozens of virtualized hosts within a datacenter or the adoption of overlay networks on top of an existing infrastructure, Telecom Computer is uniquely qualified to assist you with your virtualization. Our team of systems engineers would be happy to meet with you and discuss the solutions available. We specialize in VMware, Microsoft, and Citrix server virtualization products, as well as VMware’s NSX network virtualization solution.
