Chief executives all agree—pooling resources through virtualisation can lead to substantial savings. It renders many hardware components obsolete, while more fully utilising others. As a result, the virtualisation of applications, desktops, printers and storage continues to forge ahead. But costs aren’t the only benefit, as virtualisation also opens the door to entirely new business gains. For instance, storage reliability is boosted through smart solutions and enhanced redundancy. Manufacturers such as Citrix and Veeam offer sophisticated software solutions for all aspects of virtualisation, available in our Bechtle online shop.
One drawback to virtualisation remains, namely the considerable security challenges it poses. Are existing security strategies for physical components still effective if these modules have since moved into the virtual realm? Is data truly safe in the cloud? According to a survey conducted by Bitdefender, the majority of IT decision-makers are highly sceptical. This makes it clear that special virtualisation software also compels new solutions and updates to guarantee security. Bechtle keeps a watchful eye on the market, regularly adding new software solutions to our online offering. Because the staying power of virtualisation depends on the ability to keep your data safe.
In many business areas, virtualised computer systems have replaced physical hardware. The average desk-bound employee most likely hasn’t noticed any differences. After all, applications still run the same and workflows haven’t changed at all. Virtualisation does, however, significantly affect software when it comes to complex tasks. Big industry players such as Microsoft, VMware and Citrix have brought groundbreaking technology onto the market. We offer a broad selection of cutting-edge virtualisation software and more, including several hundred products that also encompass infrastructure and management.
