Additional Benefits to Implementing a Virtual Environment

Many organizations have found additional benefits to implementing a virtual environment for the recovery of failed servers on site:

  • Provided them with an opportunity to ‘dip their toes’ into virtualization without impacting production
  • Provided on-site high availability at a fraction of the traditional cost
  • Enhanced data protection with any-point-in-time recovery options
  • Greatly reduced planned and unplanned downtime
  • Enabled them to test the migration of physical servers to virtual without the need for any additional applications
  • Eliminated the backup window and all issues relating to open file errors by moving the backup device to the recovery system
  • Provides a unified IT DR strategy to both the physical and virtual environment
