Being able to get more from existing technologies or harness new technology with the same budget is valuable no matter what size your business. One way this can be accomplished is through integrating virtualization into the IT structure.
This type of technology is known for enabling the sharing and maximizing the use of servers and storage devices. Applications held on virtual machines are easily moved from one physical location to another across the network which serves to protect and back up service times resulting in less down time and fewer interruptions to work flow.
Busy professionals often find themselves working on the go, be it waiting for a plane at the airport or another commute, between meetings, or simply while they are moving from one location to another to see clients. These professionals benefit greatly from integration of desktop virtualization because it allows them to work with whatever device they happen to have at hand, be it a smart phone, a tablet, or even a small netbook. Once more, as main computer systems become more powerful, many businesses are realizing that overall computational power is being wasted and using a powerful system as a host for many workers who access virtual machines hosted on it remotely is a better return on investment. With the major computer being accessed being a virtual one, the over all set up is increasingly flexible.
Enterprises investing a lot of resources in static IT departments may discover they are stuck with a business system that does not adapt to changing needs. Using virtualization allows for both increased power to be brought to bare if needed through aggregation of resources and separation of those resources into individual segments for practical use, testing, upgrading, and general flexibility. All of these are benefits that can be realized with this method of IT evolution.
