Yea... Umm... We're still workin on this section...
Perhaps if we could stop staring at the rotating bug...
Virtualization is another technology; another method of reducing costs by taking a large percentage of hardware costs out of the I.T. Infrastucture and maintenance budgets.
There are times and places where virtualization is practical, and there are times where it is not. Consult Profile Technologies to find out whether or not Virtualization is right for you.
(Testing Installers, rolling back snapshots, testing web server configurations, testing product release candidates)
(Testing deployment strategies via virtual networks and servers)
- Application Testing
(proving certain patches and updates such as XP SP3 or .NET 3.5 will not break production PC's and Terminal Servers)
- Application Isolation
(For database applications that cannot coexist with each other, or for security concerns such as payroll and human resources or Intellectual Property management)
- Server Consolodation
(For server(s) hardware that is out of support and warrantee, or just to clean up existing white boxes that clutter up the server room)
- Production Servers
(Deploy new servers in a virtual environment or convert existing servers into virtual machines)
- Virtual Desktops
(Deploy new PC's in a Virtual, controlled environment, or convert existing PC's to Virtual Machines)
For Small Business there are several open source software solutions that can be deployed without incurring enterprise software licensing fees.
- Reduced Network I/O
Inter-server communication overhead can be 'Virtually' eliminated by not allowing the network traffic onto the wire in the first place. If Servers A,B,C need to talk to each other, the virtual network adapter is smart enough to know that the servers are located on the same system and doesn't need to go out the NIC, which frees up network bandwidth for workstations and pc's and laptops.
Once a PC or Server are virtualized, the systems can be migrated to any other compatible hardware platform (not your iPhone) without risk of complicated and time consuming re-activation, bare-metal restore or a repair installation, re-patch, and reinstall of all the applications.
- Resource Allocation Control
(You can throttle certain VM's based on business priority)
- Enhanced Recovery
Thin Computing is a solution and/or alternative to managing and maintinging fleets of PC's that are prone to mechanical failure, virus and malware infections. Similar to a workstation, the thin client (Terminal) device has a keyboard, mouse and monitor, and connects to a remote desktop to utilize assigned resources, office and database applications without needing an entire PC.
"It can be an eco-friendly augmentation to your existing network or deployed as a complete solution."
Thin Computing Benefits:
- Reduced Workstation Licensing Costs
(Costs of Operating System, Office, Antivirus, Anti-malware, and etc.)
- Reduced Workstation Hardware Costs
(Most thin clients do not have hard drives.)
- Reduced workstation maintenance costs
(rarely need patching)
- Reduced Network Bandwidth Consumption
(Mostly mouse clicks and keystrokes are transmitted, whereas typical PC's and workstations need to deal with network chit-chat, DNS requests, download daily/hourly anti-virus definitions, windows updates, Java Updates and other third party updates which can clog up the Local Network as well as the Internet pipe.
- Extended workstation lifecycle
Thin Clients do not write data to local hard drives, eliminating the need for one. In a typical PC or Workstation, hard drives and fans are the mechanical liabilities causing most of the typical PC Problems.
- Centralized Data Management
(Users cannot readily copy data to external drives, and data can be backed up / archived from one location rather than have multiple email PST files or MS Office documents in multiple locations that may not get backed up)
- Remote Workplace and Remote Desktops
Thin Clients can connect from anywhere with an Internet connection, meaning that it is an excellent way to augment your existing infrastructure or go completely thin, allowing remote access without having to worry about remote data-loss or theft of company data by remote employees or contractors.
- Reduced Carbon Footprint (eco-friendly)
(Smaller power supplies, less heat generation, reduced power consumption)
Consult Profile Technologies to find out if Thin Computing is right for your organization.
Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery
Disaster Recovery / Business Continuity planning is insurance for your data. Have you ever wished you had collision instead of state-minimum?
Consult Profile Technologies about the best option(s) for you. Many businesses may take steps to ensure the integrity of their data, but fail to ensure the integrety of the server hardware and/or workstations.
- Uninterruptable Power
- Server Imaging
- P.C. / Workstation Imaging
- Online Data Vaulting
- Network Backup
- Offsite Rotation
- Folder Redirection
Phishing, Malware, Spam, and Viruses can impeed a business's ability to stay productive. A tiered multi-layer approach to combating malicious content on the web can ensure that your servers and workstations keep your network healthy.
- Domain and Network Systems Administration
- Managed Anti-virus for PC's and Servers
- Managed Anti-Spam / Anti-Malware for PC's and Servers
- Managed Email Anti-Spam
- Systems Monitoring, Alert Notification
- Server Maintenance and Patching
- Remote Engineering and Support
Simple, Prudent, Cost Effective Technology for Business
