Solutions - Virtualization    
 


The escalation of single-use, under-utilized servers has created complex and sprawling data centers that are difficult to manage, expensive to maintain and afford little flexibility when new business needs arise.

Virtualization technology from PENTAGON helps you create a more flexible, responsive infrastructure by removing the limitations of location and physical packaging and by allowing you to dynamically pool and assign resources. Because each virtual server has its own set of virtual hardware, it can run its own fully-independent operating system, allowing you to host multiple operating systems and multiple applications – whether locally or in remote locations – within the same machine. Virtualization solutions improve flexibility because computing resources can be quickly assigned and re-allocated as they are needed – all from a centralized point of management.

PENTAGON experts assess your existing environment, prioritize resources for virtualization and develop a detailed strategy to meet your objectives. Our virtualization solutions enable you to:

Simplify your infrastructure – Reduce the number of physical servers that need to be maintained and enable the addition of new virtual machines without creating server sprawl.
Reduce IT costs – Lower space, energy, maintenance and management expenses
Rapidly deploy servers and applications – Provision servers in minutes compared to days
Increase flexibility – Dynamically assign resources, improving performance and the ability to respond to changing requirements. For some organizations, virtualization also provides a less costly path to disaster recovery 
Reduce energy consumption – Move toward a green data center by reducing the carbon footprint and keeping power and cooling costs in check
