Virtualisation is often thought of as a resource and cost saving opportunity for larger enterprises. However, many of the benefits offered by this customisable, layered technology can be effectively harnessed by SMEs too, enabling consolidation and eliminating capital expenditure on IT equipment.
With the internet becoming increasingly reliable and efficient, and a boom in hosted applications and services for businesses, virtualisation has proved itself by demonstrating tangible benefits such as cost effectiveness, scalability and reliability. Plus, by virtue of its customisable “layers”, it can offer bespoke solutions at the right level to suit business needs for SMEs.
At TalkTalk Business, we understand that this centralisation of resources offered by virtualisation simplifies management operations and allows a single maintenance operation to span a large number of virtualised desktops, saving manpower and resource.
In fact, we know that SMEs in particular stand to gain a lot by working with a qualified partner to virtualise, as by its very nature, the SME is a more fragile entity than its corporate counterpart.
