On-Premise Virtualization is a really useful way to limit the amount of necessary hardware sitting in your server room. Imagine combining all of your servers into a single physical server. The only limiting factor in rolling out an On-Premise solution is the total amount of resources available on the host box. Assuming that your organization’s server has enough power and resources to accommodate a consolidation, multiple guest servers can live within a single physical box.
On-Premise virtualization is a traditional data center approach. The primary benefit of On-Premise Virtualization is that it gives your organization a larger degree of control over the hardware involved in a campaign to virtualize. The primary drawback is that your organization retains the responsibility for the hardware, and the responsibility for a successfully implemented hardware lifecycle plan. This virtualization solution is heavier on the capital expense side.
A good blend of On-Premise Virtualization and Cloud Hosting is what we call Hybrid-Cloud Virtualization; where some of the more critical infrastructure is retained On-Premise, and some is, you guessed it, hosted offsite in a private cloud. This method is useful for the organization that wants to keep its critical infrastructure onsite, but still take advantage of the cost-savings in the cloud. TRA Consulting, Inc. is experienced in executing Hybrid-Cloud Virtualization deployments.
Just as important as finding the right Virtualization/Hosting solution for your organization – is finding the solution provider that will advise you in selecting the right product, and execute your migration with integrity and high efficiency. We suggest you work with a knowledgeable and experienced IT provider, like TRA Consulting, to facilitate the change.
