Netmender is currently involved with several virtualization re-engineering projects for small businesses in the Northern Virginia area. Clients with aging server plants thought that they had reached End-Of-Life for their valuable software investments, as well. Using state-of-the-art HP server and storage technologies on affordable small-business platforms, these servers are being converted to virtual servers using VMWare and Microsoft solutions software.
Rather than having to undergo the disruptive and tedious process of upgrading every server and all application software, client organizations continued work uninterrupted as their core applications were migrated over to robust new HP hardware with fresh service warranties for far less than the upgrades would have cost.
Those upgrades can still take place in the future, but in the zero-risk, near-zero-downtime of a virtualized environment at the leisure of a more relaxed budget and timeline.
