1. How does virtual infrastructure work?
Virtual infrastructure is the next generation of server environment, and is designed to address the inefficiencies of the in-house server model and the limitations of dedicated servers. Doing away with the restrictions and hassles associated with having to own, manage and maintain server hardware, virtual servers instead offer ready-to-use, fully supported server capacity on a simple monthly subscription basis. However, our virtual servers don’t have to act as islands – they can be fully integrated with your existing networks to behave as a seamless extension of your infrastructure.
Unlike dedicated servers, Blink Technology Solutions’ virtual servers offer grid computing features, allowing you to expand or shrink your CPU, RAM and storage on the fly – almost like having a super computer! Don’t get trapped in a fixed specification – utilize real cloud computing to increase any resources at the touch of a button, as your site or application demands.
Our virtual infrastructure servers look and feel exactly like traditional dedicated servers but, because they’re based on our state-of-the-art cloud computing grid infrastructure, you have instant access to an almost limitless pool of computing resources. As such, changes to your server can be made on the fly, without any of the headaches or cost penalties associated with moving from one server to another. Thus, whilst you’re guaranteed a minimum level of resources, you’ve always got access to more should you need them.
Additional RAM, CPU and disk space can all be added and removed at the click of a button, without any need for rebooting, providing you with a truly agile, scalable server environment. This means you don’t have to over-subscribe in order to provide for seasonal peaks or unanticipated demand, you can just expand server resources as and when they’re needed.
2. Importing Existing VM Infrastructure
You can even import existing Physical, VMware or Parallels servers into the cloud, helping you quickly migrate and rationalize costs without having to add disruption to process.
