Virtualization Solutions

Virtualization is a proven technology that is rapidly transforming IT Infrastructure and fundamentally changing the way that people compute. Essentially, one or more of the following five kinds of virtualization — employed independent or in combination — reduces your dependency on physical computing devices:

  • Hardware virtualization allows more than one Operating System to simultaneously interact with one set of hardware.
  • Operating System virtualization, sometimes also called container-based virtualization, enables multiple Operating System instances that leverage the same source to consume fewer resources.
  • Application virtualization separates the individual applications from the host, simplifying the installation, management, update, and removal of applications by eliminating their direct links into the Operating System.
  • Network virtualization enables one physical network to be broken into multiple virtual networks, or for using software to virtually network machines without the use of traditional network devices.
  • Storage virtualization enables advanced storage management functionality such as combining the storage capacity of multiple devices into a single, logical storage device. Data storage virtualization can also enhance the provisioning, backup, and disaster recovery of storage through replication and snapshotting capabilities.

Virtualization dramatically improves the efficiency and availability of your resources and applications. Through our virtualization solutions, you can employ your precious IT resources to respond to business priorities faster and more efficiently. However, an effective virtualization strategy requires a balanced understanding of the current IT environment, consideration of the impact of data center consolidation beyond the server layer, and a deep understanding of how IT serves a particular business – today and into the future. With extensive experience with IT Infrastructure, Managed Service, IT Consulting, and High Availability Data Centers, Jaggy offers an unparalleled understanding of what it takes to optimize the virtualization opportunity.
