Server Virtualisation Services – Sydney, Australia
Despite the emergence of cloud, on-premises server virtualisation is still popular with many organisations. The ability to run multiple virtual machines (VMs) on a single physical server has many benefits, including reduced power consumption, lower hardware / operating costs and ease of provisioning.
As your local Sydney virtualisation specialist, DC Encompass has considerable experience when it comes to implementing Type 1 and Type 2 hypervisors from VMware, Microsoft, Citrix, Oracle and Red Hat.
An overview of our hypervisor / server virtualisation services
Physical-to-Virtual (P2V) and Virtual-to-Virtual (V2V) migrations
You don’t have to go it alone with server virtualisation. DC Encompass is able to provide specific assistance with Physical-to-Virtual (P2V) and Virtual-to-Virtual (V2V) migrations. We work collaboratively with the other IT professionals on your virtualisation team.
Virtual machine hardening (Windows and Linux)
In an age of sophisticated cyber-attacks, securing your virtualised environment is essential. DC Encompass can harden your virtual machines by tightening VM settings, performing regular patching and disabling ports (on the physical host servers). We can also help you create network security policies and compliance documentation.
Creation of business continuity and disaster recovery (DR) plans
Virtualisation has a number of inherent advantages when it comes to business continuity planning (BCP) and disaster recovery (DR). DC Encompass can help you devise and implement a BCP/DR plan that incorporates one or more of the following measures: backup / restore, continual backup, application resiliency and high-availability clustering.
Virtualisation health check and optimisation assessment
DC Encompass can audit your existing virtualised environment to identify issues relating to resource distribution, backward compatibility, security and licensing. If we discover an issue, we’ll propose a cost-effective solution to solve the problem.
Design, planning and implementation of virtualised environments
A virtualisation project is inherently complex and requires a strategic approach. DC Encompass can help you design, plan and implement a large virtualisation project. When you engage with us, we’ll help you decide which applications, storage, databases, memory and networks to virtualise, along with the order of priority.
Selection of virtualisation vendor
DC Encompass can help you assess the major virtualisation vendors (Microsoft, VMware, Oracle, Citrix, Red Hat) and select the right virtualisation solution going forward. We’ll help you choose between a Type 1 “bare metal” hypervisor (Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware ESXi, Oracle VM Server, Citrix Hypervisor) and a Type 2 hypervisor from VMware, Oracle or Red Hat.
