Changes in the economy and a new quarter or new year are all good times to assess your business, especially when it comes to the cost of technology. How much is IT management costing the business? Are they solving problems that need to be solved? Does the business need to space the server room is taking? Are you looking for ways to create efficiencies while cutting back on costs? It’s time to consider IT virtualization. While it isn’t for every business, it works well for many types of businesses, organizations, and firms.
What is IT Virtualization?
IT virtualization is the other name for cloud services. Rather than running multiple servers, businesses are opting instead to migrate to a virtual environment that turns one server into a host for a group of servers all sharing the same resource. Whether it’s an operating system or server, we’re moving business to the cloud. This creates efficiencies and scalability for businesses like yours.
How IT Virtualization Changes Business
As you’re reviewing the costs and processes of your business, let’s consider the benefits of IT virtualization. Our clients tell us the following about how it has changed their businesses:
- Decreased IT overhead costs
- Increased flexibility and scalability
- Stay ahead of competition
- Reduction of IT management costs
- Elimination of server rooms
- Faster set up time for new employees
- Simplified data management
- Improved disaster recovery time
While change can be challenging, it can move your business in a new (and better) direction.
Why Hire IT Services
The Fullscope IT Services team understands not only how to implement IT virtualization for small to medium-sized businesses, we understand when it makes sense. While beneficial, the technology isn’t necessarily right for every business, firm, or organization.
According to Tech Advisory, it makes sense to implement for the following four reasons:
- If the business relies on technology like computers and networks. IT virtualization will cut back tech costs and create efficiencies.
- If your company employs more than 20 people. With less employees, it may make more sense to have a traditional server.
- If your business is able to cover the costs of implementing and operating IT virtualization. To help, FullScope will conduct an analysis to determine if it makes sense for your business.
- If you need server space for new employees. Oftentimes a business will look to virtual solutions when they need to create space, and getting rid of in-house servers is a great way to do that.
At Fullscope IT, our goal is to provide IT services like IT virtualization to businesses when it makes sense to do so. Whether you have a growing team, rely on technology, or are looking for cost-effective server solutions, we’re here for you.
