Whether you prefer VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V we are equipped and certified
to show you options to virtualize your physical server and applications.

vSOM (vSphere with Operation Management)

vSOM empowers administrators and other management to automate and deploy their applications as needed for operational efficiency. It is an additional management tool that makes vSphere easiest to use and monitor.

vSAN (Storage Area Network)

After the virtualization of your servers, the next step is software-defined (SD) storage which gives huge management features and more utilization of your storage. SD storage can be utilized for migration, additional fault tolerance features, compression and a long list of other tools. A VM is essentially a file folder that can be moved as needed to other servers onsite, offsite or in the cloud. vSAN allows your storage to be just as agile through virtual volumes.

Virtualization - VMWare vSphere

Virtualization is a proven software technology that makes it possible to run multiple operating systems and applications on the same server at the same time which is enabled through the use of a hypervisor that delineates between virtual machines. Virtualization can increase IT agility, flexibility, and scalability while creating significant cost savings. Workloads get deployed faster, performance and availability increase and operations become automated, resulting in an IT that's simpler to manage and less costly to own and operate.


NSX enables the creation of entire networks in software and embeds them in the hypervisor layer, abstracted from the underlying physical hardware. All network components can be provisioned in minutes, without the need to modify the application. NSX also embeds security functions right into the hypervisor. It delivers micro-segmentation and granular security to the individual workload, enabling a fundamentally more secure data center. Security policies travel with the workloads, independent of where workloads are in the network topology.

Microsoft Hyper-V Server
