Modernize your IT Infrastructure with Virtualization Support

As part of our standard support and managed services agreements, Spinnaker Support’s diverse team of technology experts provide impartial advice on implementing the right virtualization solution to simultaneously meet your business goals and your IT requirements. Virtualizing your computing environment and network brings many benefits, including:

  • Reduction in costs by better maintaining your infrastructure, minimizing downtime, increasing productivity and eliminating unnecessary hardware costs
  • Easily add, delete or modify server resources as capacity and performance needs change
  • Improved backup and disaster recovery environments
  • Improved testing and development environments that are scalable
  • Provides an easier route to cloud migration

Organizations move to virtualization as a way to capitalize on server utilization and to diminish the number of systems that must be supported and managed – thus maximizing the return on overall system infrastructure investment. It can increase IT agility, flexibility, and scalability while creating significant cost savings. Virtualization software pools server computing resources and then allocates them efficiently between virtual machines for improved performance, reliability, and operational mobility. Virtualization software configures and separates physical infrastructures to create multiple dedicated resources.

Case Study: Virtualized Datacenter

A current large manufacturing client contacted Spinnaker Support for strategic advice regarding a planned operating system upgrade and migration away from IBM. Based on our recommendations and hands-on assistance, the client shifted part of a business process to a Windows server, resolving an iSeries / application incompatibility issue. Since the client was no longer under Oracle Support, they did not have access to an operating system patch. The patch was not available at the time of archiving; however, Spinnaker Support was able to troubleshoot and research alternative solutions and recommended hosting multiple data centers housed on the same physical hardware. The recommended virtualization solution was quickly validated and implemented by our client.

Case Study: Simplified IT Virtualization

An international communications company sought to roll out the latest browsers on new laptops; however, their Oracle applications were incompatible with the newest browser versions. A team of Spinnaker Support technology stack experts reviewed the requirements and designed a hybrid solution; utilizing a virtualized system and remotely accessing systems to run an older Windows version on the latest browser. With minimal training and development effort, the client quickly met IT’s requirement of issuing new laptops on the latest browsers and the business’s requirement to run the applications via remote and virtualized technology.
