Virtualization & Cloud Computing
It’s clear that we’re in the midst of a profound, pervasive, and inevitable technology paradigm shift. Cloud computing, fueled by the move to 100% virtualized environments, represents a massive platform change that is altering the status quo of IT. As this shift continues to gain momentum, IT strategies must be defined, planned against, and implemented in the context of this new world order versus perpetuating conventional IT paradigms.

GreenPages was also able to help Wire Belt virtualize 100% of their physical servers, increasing productivity and efficiency across the company.
Virtualization—the Key to Unlocking the Cloud
The driver behind cloud computing is the ability to access compute resources on demand without up-front capital expenditure. And as more companies adopt distributed applications capable of crossing compute boundaries, it’s crucial to have the systems, hardware, and management architecture in place to take advantage of the cloud.
Virtualization—the key to unlocking cloud computing—is the most strategic IT initiative that organizations can undertake during this significant market transition. GreenPages helps clients design 100 percent virtualized, cloud capable IT environments to seamlessly and securely harness the enormous benefits of the new computing model.
This Changes Everything. You Need a Plan.
Virtualization in all of its forms—client, server, application, network, and storage—provides enormous advantages to organizations of all sizes, but it also dramatically changes the way things are done and how decisions are made. And because implementing virtualization is organizationally and technologically disruptive, understanding how it affects every aspect of your infrastructure is absolutely critical.
Move to a 100% Virtualized Infrastructure
Beyond server consolidation, virtualization solves an even broader set of challenges by dramatically improving the efficiency and availability of resources and applications inside—and outside—your organization.
- A virtualized architecture enables organizations to dynamically allocate hardware resources based on when and where they’re needed most.
- Business continuity plans based on virtualization can make DR simple, reliable, and more cost effective.
- A virtual desktop infrastructure enables IT administrators to quickly deploy and manage large numbers of desktops with custom configurations for a quality user experience.
