The way in which organisations run applications and business processes from servers has significantly changed. Server virtualisation technology has allowed businesses to re-think the way in which they host business applications, enabling investment in IT to be fully realised with servers running at optimum capacity.
One key aspect to server virtualisation is running virtual machines or VM’s on the server via a ‘hypervisor’.
Having being early adopters of such technology, Innov8 partnered with the originators of server virtualisation, and use the VMware hypervisor which can be used on multiple server platforms. However in order to benefit fully from server virtualisation, Innov8 have also partnered with Cisco, IBM and HP to provide powerful scalable servers. IBM and HP servers, as well as the Cisco UCS platform provides the ideal start-point on which to build a powerful virtual server environment.
Globally over 80% of virtualised workloads run on VMware technology and with features such as load-balancing, failover and straight-forward management tools, VMware lead the market with their server virtualisation software.
