BMB is vmware Professional Partner
Businesses are realizing that the state of IT, as it exists today, is simply unsustainable. With a traditional x86 computing model, the OS and applications are tightly bound to the hardware, leading to significant challenges. Typically companies spend more than 70% of their IT budgets on routine infrastructure and application maintenance. This is a reflection of the poor manageability and flexibility of the current infrastructure.
Virtualization dramatically improves efficiency by converting under-utilized physical computers into software-based virtual machines and then placing those virtual machines, or VMs, onto far fewer physical servers. This is called consolidation. Reducing the number of servers through consolidation reduces the capital expenditures or CAPEX required to support IT at a given level.
Going beyond CAPEX savings, virtualization with VMware’s datacenter virtualization solutions includes the ability to consolidate and integrate systems management for greater efficiency and it also allows the introduction of automation at every level in the datacenter.
Software-based virtual machines can be created in minutes and deployed rapidly, and they can be made highly available at a fraction of the cost required for physical machines.
Virtualization and automation also create new lower-cost options for disaster recovery including the ability to easily create and test DR plans to ensure business continuity.
BMB partnering with VMware combine these benefits and many others to greatly reduce the ongoing operating expenditures, or OPEX, required to deliver IT services. In fact, VMware customers typically save 50-70% on overall IT costs by consolidating their resources, delivering highly available virtual machines, and protecting them with vSphere. This means VMware customers have more time and money to invest in innovation and increased flexibility in supporting business goals.
Not to forget that VMware delivers the most customer-proven, reliable, secure and complete platform for cloud computing, with private, public and hybrid options.
