Both of these situations are examples in which virtualization might be able to help you achieve a business goal. Technology can become more expensive as your business grows, but there’s a simple solution: improved efficiency. System Virtualization is a good way to help operational efficiency for several reasons. Virtualization can help minimize your hardware requirements by enabling you to run multiple machines on one server, whether it's on-premises, or running from a cloud-based service.
It allows running multiple instances of Operating Systems (OSes) and Applications on a Single Computer in which each of the operating systems and applications, runs as a self-contained system inside a virtual container. A review of the terminology associated with virtualization will help to bring the idea to life in your mind:
Virtual Machine Monitor-VMM: the software layer that is installed over the host Operating System. It enables the provisioning, setup, and switching between Virtual Machine Consoles, or Virtual Machine Graphical User Interfaces.
Host Architecture: A computer that will become a host machine into which guest OSes (or guest virtual machines) will be installed, is called the host. The host machine requires its own base OS upon which a hypervisor is installed. It is upon that hypervisor software layer that VMM is installed, to allow users to provision and run guest OSes.
Bare-Metal Architecture: The software layer hypervisor is directly installed on system hardware, thus allowing direct access between I/O devices and the VMM. This improves I/O performance with real-time OS support.
In earlier times, a single user required a whole dedicated system to perform various tasks. At nearly any point in time, more than 90% of the system’s capability was not in use. The under-utilization of resources increased the resource cost. At the same time, the IT Desktop Support Process was difficult because it was not easy to upgrade, patch, maintain, and ensure system recovery measures on many computers simultaneously. Each machine had its own single OS image, with software and hardware tightly coupled. Multiple application executions created conflicts. With virtualization came the following benefits:
Efficient Use of Hardware Resources: Making multiple operating systems and applications run on the same hardware, at the same time, increased hardware utilization—thus reducing infrastructure costs and making maintenance a relative breeze.
Improved Development and Test Efficiency: By reducing the amount of time it takes to set up hardware and software and reproduce test environments.
Improved Server Availability: By using fewer physical computers than would be needed in a legacy business configuration that uses only physical computers. Available resources can be easily increased or reduced in response to changes in demand.
Enhanced Administrative Productivity and Responsiveness: Virtual machines can be provisioned to any system. Management and deployment of OSes, with their associated applications, as single units encapsulated into virtual machines are accelerated and simplified. Rapid deployment of new servers to address changing business needs becomes a simple process.
Better Failure Management: Virtualization minimizes downtime, and enables continuity and recovery management. In a way, Virtualization ensures that resources are fully utilized under any unexpected circumstances, thus enabling computers to be more productive.

Over the years of Providing Technical Consulting Services and Network Administration Services for a variety of different clients- we've heard several complaints about previous providers. In many instances, it’s not the fault of the service providers in question.
Oftentimes, the client’s dissatisfaction is due to the nature of One-Man Service Shops, or Two-Person Tech Companies. Companies with this type of structure can’t deliver and scale an operationally mature service model unless-they have only several clients.
Two of the most common issues are pricing, and reliability, (and lack of specialization):
Many Consultants bill at lower hourly rates, but may oftentimes take considerably longer to provide the services, (possibly because they’re still figuring out how the specific technology works). In some cases, you may find a specialized consultant- but they are going to charge slightly higher. Race is Different.
We’ve heard almost all of the complaints in the industry- and we’ve managed to grow our business by providing a solution to these common challenges. In many cases, the poor outcome is just due to the nature of One-Man Service Shops, or Two-Person Tech Support companies. One-Man Companies have a limited-service delivery model. We have solved this.
Our platform-style approach to cyber security service delivery is unique because of the strategic interaction between our internal team and our service distribution network. We have an established internal core team of cyber experts- in different locations nationally. These experts manage our client’s equipment, respond to alerts from our monitoring systems, and keep things up and running securely. Our extended team of technicians is our extra “feet on the ground” for client on-site services in a variety of locations throughout the country. These service providers are registered internally within our business platform, and our business enables them to operate and grow.
We accomplish this achievement by staffing a back-end support team and building relationships with independent Windows Server And Administration Support Providers with different specialties in a variety of different areas. We provide these service vendors with a variety of assets and value-added materials, and we use this to build a Service Partner Distribution Network.
With so many Technical Service Providers and Technical Consultants offering Virtualization Services in the market- it's hard to honestly say that we are "The Expert IT Company" for your Virtualization Services. We always strive to be a competitive, reliable, and Top-Tier Service Provider by offering a unique total value proposition.
When you evaluate cost, response time, reliability, knowledge across the board, efficiency, and effectiveness—you will see that we are priced very competitively. Collectively, our tech team covers all areas in which a small-to-medium-sized business might need to rely on its IT Partner.

Server Virtualization Services, or simply virtualization, refers to the process of creating a representative form—a virtual object—of an actual object. It separates the resource, or request for a service, from the underlying physical delivery of that service. In computing terminology, it is a framework, or an architecture, that enables the end user to experience optimum usage of available computer resources. Virtualization uses software to create a layer of “virtual computer hardware” that allows the hardware elements of a single computer—processors, memory, storage, and more—to be divided into multiple virtual computers. With virtualization, a user can create an image from several servers, and run several servers on a single piece of hardware. Each instance of another machine is commonly called a virtual machine (VMs). Each VM can run its own operating system (OS) and acts like an independent computer, even though it is running on just a portion of the actual underlying computer hardware. This independent computer is still limited on the bases of its hardware allocation limitations, and configuration.
We don’t require a longer term support contract in all cases; but it would help us reduce the project pricing. Reach out to us and we can discuss your specific questions, based on your use case of our services.
Most commonly, virtualization refers to virtual machines, but there are several additional types of virtualization. Network Virtualization: This refers to utilizing a segment of a single physical network through a logical segmentation. The segments are deployed as logical services. Each segment encapsulates hardware and software network resources and functionality into a single virtual network. Each segment is independent of the others and can be assigned in real-time for scaling of networks for business needs. Desktop Virtualization: VDI stands for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure. This term was popularized by VMWare. A remote Virtual Machine (VM) has an entire OS, with its applications, managed in one single place—or in a hosted environment. Access to this system is remotely given to the end user. The end user can thus use all the necessary applications remotely—without the need of installing applications on his local computer. As the number of users grows in an organization, the provision of remote access can be easily expanded. Thus IT Desktop support becomes much easier. Server Virtualization: A physical server is partitioned into multiple smaller virtual servers—each having the capability of a physical server—with the resources of the host server being allotted to each virtual machine. Each virtual server can run and reboot its own OS independent from any other virtual server on the host. The reduced hardware cost, and increased resource utilization, encourage choosing this option.
Virtualization Services don’t change in the level of sophistication based on the size of the organization using the services. But, Virtualization is a more commonly used service in Technology environments running in large-scale organizations. So we do work with large businesses more often on a regular basis. Race Computer Services is equally equipped to handle virtualization services for businesses of all sizes.
