Virtualization is a proven software technology that is rapidly transforming the IT landscape and fundamentally changing how computing is done. Virtualization breaks traditional boundaries and allows a physical server to safely and reliably run multiple “virtual machines” at the same time, each with its own operating system and application – pooling system resources that can be dynamically managed with a high level of flexibility, availability, and reliability.

As a matter of fact, some argue that it is adding to their TCO as they do not see the reduction in costs that virtualization is designed to offer. However, Aktion’s virtualization services are designed to assure full deployment of the solutions that are right for your environment and business needs. How is this accomplished? We assess your environment, use the right know-how and help you make the most of your investment.

Virtualization Impact Assessments (VIA)

Are you a candidate for Virtualization? Our VIA assessment examines a customers’ IT environment and creates a recommended scenario for virtualization and consolidation. Utilizing sophisticated data collection tools, we will establish a baseline inventory of your existing environment; collect and compare actual utilization and peak workloads; then use these comparisons to formulate recommended virtualization scenarios that include TCO and ROI business cases. More than one scenario is usually included in the comprehensive presentation provided at the conclusion of the assessment.
