IT Directors and IT staff members all understand the benefits that come from virtualizing their server, storage, desktop infrastructure
Salt Lake City, UT (Vocus) April 14, 2010
As the economic environment improves in Utah, it is hard for some businesses to avoid what they have been putting off for a few years: IT improvements and upgrades. IT spending has always been a difficult pill to swallow for business execs and their financial controllers even in good times. IT expenditures for PC’s, servers, and storage are often one of the largest targets when it comes time to tighten the budgets, and these expenditures are often viewed as “expenses” rather than “investments”. Now that IT budgets are easing a bit, both the execs and the IT staff need to fully understand the latest technologies available to make the best investment decisions.
VirtualizeUtah.com was developed by local Utah companies I-O Corporation and Swivelhead Design Works to help business leaders understand how an investment in more virtualization technologies can benefit their businesses.
“IT Directors and IT staff members all understand the benefits that come from virtualizing their server, storage, desktop infrastructure,” says Matt Brady, President of I-O Corporation. “This site was created so the IT personnel could better explain these benefits and justify the technology investment to the business leaders and decision makers.”
For businesses looking to maximize their budget, the flash tutorial at VirtualizeUtah.com can help them understand how they can achieve the following objectives:
- Simplify IT infrastructure and maintenance
- Reduce IT operating costs
- Replace outdated, high-power consumption Servers and PCs
- Maximize use of hardware and software assets
IT Teams nationwide are depending more and more on virtualization solutions because it ultimately extends the life of their infrastructure investment and it helps the IT Staff become more effective when it comes to maintaining the technology. “Besides the improvements we are seeing in the economy, there is another reason we are seeing wide acceptance of virtualization technologies, and that is because it has become more affordable,” says Brady. “The hardware and software needed for virtual infrastructures within enterprise-sized organizations was once considered too expensive for small, medium, and large businesses. It is now affordable because IBM, Microsoft, and VMWare have adjusted their pricing structures.”
