The Time is NOW
A recent study conducted by Techaisle on small and midsize business IT goals concluded that the number one priority was migration from older technologies.
The reasoning was simple:
- Older technologies are more expensive to maintain
- May no longer be supported
- Don't provide the necessary flexibility to support growth
What if you could greatly simplify IT while saving money and setting up your business for growth?

The next step is Virtualisation
Virtualisation is all the craze. It's nearly impossible not to hear about the benefits of virtualisation. What's the big deal? A lot of talk of virtualisation has been around cost savings, consolidation of servers and applications, and power reduction. These are all true. Virtualisation represents a major transformation opportunity for companies and that the trend will be heating up in midmarket.
Microsoft's approach to Virtualisation
Microsoft's virtualisation approach is unique: build it into the operating system – integrate it deeply with the other valuable services such as high-availability, live migration, and branch office support. When you upgrade your older servers to Windows® Server 2008 R2 SP1 with Hyper-V™ you get virtualisation built-in.
Centralised IT management
The perfect accompaniment to virtualisation is centralised management. This might sound complicated but it isn't. Microsoft developed Microsoft® System Centre Essentials 2010, a systems management tool designed specifically for mid-size business that puts the emphasis on:
- Ease of use and the ability to centrally monitor your systems
- Automate common repetitive tasks to give you more time back
- Management of physical and virtual systems, as well as desktops and servers
