Why use XenServer?
Citrix XenServer radically reduces datacentre costs, increases the flexibility of the IT environment, creates efficiency in the IT environment, and enhances user performance and productivity. How?
- Cuts costs - Save on power and cooling costs by converting physical servers into virtual servers, this reduces the number of physical servers required in the datacentre. By consolidating servers, hardware maintenance costs are also reduced.
- Increases IT agility and efficiency - IT can easily adapt to the changing demands of the datacentre by dynamically increasing or decreasing capacity, placing VMs for optimal hardware utilisation, and automating repetitive management tasks.
- Improves performance and user productivity - XenServer enables ‘zero downtime’ maintenance, automatic recovery from hardware failure, and provides failover capabilities in disaster situations. End users are ensured access to mission critical application in all scenarios.
Citrix XenServer Brisbane is designed for the efficient management of Windows and Linux virtual servers. This gives the ability to an organisation of any size to transform a traditional static and/or complex datacentre environment into more dynamic, easy to manage datacentre.
