Getting Started With Virtualization
Virtual servers, desktops and virtualized applications are more efficient and cost-effective solutions than relying on expensive physical resources.
Previously, you could only run one server for every machine. With virtualization implementation, you can run dozens of servers per machine, greatly reducing operational costs and troubleshooting time.
Leveraging the underlying server’s computing resources, virtualization empowers you to run multiple independent virtual machines, desktops or applications on the same server – or host – simultaneously.
Your IT team may want a virtual server for testing purposes, another to centralize management or to simplify your IT environment. Implementing virtualization condenses these into one physical machine, allowing you to power more servers with less physical hardware.
TechPro has helped dozens of Orange County and Los Angeles-based companies consolidate their servers via virtualization and experience huge cost savings as a result.

How Virtualization Works for You
Like many organizations, you may be running many physical servers operating at minimal capacity. But this approach only bogs down your IT environment and eats up financial resources.
Virtualization consolidates your servers – eliminating inefficiencies, decreasing the cost of owning and operating hardware while increasing agility and scalability. Rather than waiting months to install and configure a new server, you have a virtual server up and running within a few hours.
Savings in time and money is the biggest benefit of virtualization implementation. With a more centralized and efficient IT environment, you reduce downtime and time spent troubleshooting. Fewer physical servers also cuts down power, cooling and other operational costs.

Optimize Your Environment
Now that you’ve begun virtualizing, optimization and customization should play a key role in your virtual strategy. By optimizing your virtual machines and following a customized growth and maintenance strategy, you ensure performance and productivity remain high.
For example, from a performance standpoint, your virtual machines act as files sitting on a disk. To remain efficient as your VM environment grows, you need to move your VMs around via defragmenting to better utilize these resources.
By repositioning files, programs and unused space on the virtual disk, programs will run faster, and users can quickly access files. However, defragmenting virtual disks is only one piece of the optimization puzzle.

Optimize Your Environment
So, you’ve begun virtualizing your environment and discovering the benefits of the virtual world. In essence, you’re a virtualizing machine.
However, the more virtual machines your organization has, the more complex these environments become. Virtualizing intricate components of the network like clustering and outliers can put your efforts at a standstill.
As you grow your virtual environment, new challenges are sure to arise. Customer demands will change, business will ask for the impossible and you will need to enable everyone.
TechPro’s out-of-the-box virtualization solutions can help you get closer to 100 percent virtualization, optimize performance and unlock the complete savings, efficiencies and capabilities virtualization can afford.

Eliminate Downtime With Clustering
Now that you’ve already built your virtual cluster or you’re preparing to do so, virtualization offers some creative and flexible clustering.
For example, a high availability cluster is a group of hosts that act as a single system and ensures continuous uptime. Similarly, failover clusters are groups of servers that work together to maintain high availability and eliminate downtime.
In a clustered host environment, virtual machines are connected through a virtual network across several physical networks or a VM hosted by multiple physical clusters.
This redundancy can make your virtual machines tolerant to failure and ensure high availability, paving the way to high-performance computing and load balancing.
For example, with virtualized clusters, VMs can reside on other available nodes until an issue is resolved – ensuring continuous access to data. Most importantly, your organization only experiences a fraction of the downtime compared to a typical failover.
Clustering will require higher investment, and choosing the right technology can be challenging. To learn more about clustering, high availability and what it means to you, contact TechPro today!
Improve Performance With Comprehensive Management
By now, you’ve probably noticed that the more you virtualize, the more resources get eaten up. While this is the nature of the beast, there are ways to predict, measure and act to prevent poor and unpredictable performance.
As your virtualized infrastructure fluctuates with user and application load, you must keep tabs on information associated with a massive number of objects spread across shared resources in real time.
That’s where performance management comes into play. To maintain peak performance of your virtualized infrastructure, you need the resources and acumen to understand, troubleshoot and optimize your virtual data centers daily.
However, even the savviest IT admins may not have the resources or know-how to fully optimize virtual performance, let alone properly manage their infrastructure.
