Virtualisation

With well over 50% of UK organisations now incoporating virtual solutions within their IT infrastructures, virtualisation is an important and growing trend. So what exactly is virtualisation and what benefits could it offer you?

Reduce hardware costs from server virtualisation

When you implement a virtualised server, hardware utilisation is increased because one physical server can now hold multiple virtual machines. Applications no longer need their own server because each virtual machine on the physical server now runs them.

Faster server provisioning and deployment

Server virtualisation enables system provisioning and deployment within minutes, allowing you to clone an existing virtual machine without the hours and costs normally spent installing a new physical server.

Server virtualisation greatly improves disaster recovery

Backing up your critical data is done quickly and effectively because your company can effortlessly create a replication site. Most enterprise virtualisation platforms contain clever software that help automate the failover during a disaster bringing peace of mind.

Virtualisation saves significant energy costs

Among other server virtualisation benefits, the migration of physical servers to virtual machines allows you to consolidate them onto fewer physical servers, resulting in reduction of cooling and power costs.

RedKeyIT Pay As You Go (PAYG)

Our Pay As You Go (PAYG) IT support service is a great way to start working with RedKeyIT.

Use PAYG to put in place a minimum-level of protection, or to implement a transition in your business, before establishing a defined service-level, or as an add-on to a Standard or Premium service level when your business changes direction.

You can use PAYG to bridge between your Plan A and Plan B when things settle down.

PAYG is also great for businesses or IT teams needing a fluctuating level of complementary IT support and those who use us regularly but are not wishing to commit to a monthly contract - simply pay for the service you need.

This is also an ideal ad-hoc service for general one-off IT support issues, emergency support, consultation services and project work for companies with an existing IT department that require additional resources.

We provide for all types of organisations and recognise that small businesses change more quickly and may not want to commit to a monthly support contract.

We are ready to hit the ground running for your business IT situation.

Call now for the RedKey to unlocking resources.

We’re here when you need extra help or expertise right now, whether it’s an emergency that requires urgent remote support or a rapid onsite visit (such as a critical server failure) or just a one-off or intermittent issue that needs resolving.
If you need additional technical manpower for a project, or if you want to outsource the whole thing – we can help.
Common scenarios where we can assist include cover for holidays, sickness or other absence, while existing IT staff are on secondments or training, or after new project rollouts to provide extra cover.
