Growth in business information continues to accelerate, driven by applications such as Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint and SQL Server. IT budgets remain constrained and investing in more servers and storage to support these growing Microsoft applications is rarely the best strategy.
A more effective long term solution is to rearchitect the applications and the infrastructure to support a consolidated and virtualized environment: Challenges to overcome include: optimizing inconsistent IT environments, rapid deployment and adoption of a virtualized infrastructure and ensuring business continuity while virtualizing.
EMC Consultants have the required skills and experience across a range of technologies including:
- The knowledge to rearchitect the application that is to be virtualized
- The experience to design and deploy the virtualized environment
- The migration skills to ensure that production application data is migrated without impacting the business.
