Servers and Virtualisation
Server installation, setup, and management for your business.
Servers are used in a variety of settings, including businesses, schools, and government agencies. Businesses use servers to store and manage important data, such as customer records and financial information whilst schools use servers to provide students and faculty with access to email, the internet, and other resources.
Effective server management allows the users to stay connected and to access all the data and applications they need without any issue. However, managing and maintaining a fleet of end user devices can be a challenge, especially for small businesses. This is where D8A come in with our managed solution of sourcing, installing, and monitoring the servers.
Server virtualisation is the process of partitioning a physical server into multiple virtual servers. Each virtual server can run its own operating system and applications independently of the other virtual servers on the same physical server.
Server virtualisation is achieved by using a software layer called a hypervisor. The hypervisor sits between the physical hardware and the virtual machines, and it manages the allocation of resources to the virtual machines.
We provide both full and partial virtualisation depending on your requirements.
Server hardware is the physical components of a server. It includes the motherboard, CPU, RAM, storage, network interface card, and power supply.
Server hardware is typically more powerful and reliable than desktop computer hardware. Servers are designed to run 24/7 and to handle large volumes of data.
If you are looking for a way to improve the efficiency and productivity of your business, consider using servers. Servers can provide several benefits, including centralised storage, improved performance, scalability, and reliability.
Server Operating Systems
A server operating system (server OS) is a type of operating system that is designed to run on servers. It is an advanced version of an operating system, having features and capabilities required within a client-server architecture or similar enterprise computing environment.
Server operating systems are typically more powerful and stable than desktop operating systems. They offer features such as:
- High availability: Server operating systems are designed to be available 24/7. This is important for businesses that rely on their servers to be up and always running.
- Security: Server operating systems include security features to protect data and applications from unauthorized access.
- Scalability: Server operating systems can be scaled up or down to meet the needs of the business. This allows businesses to add more servers as needed or to remove servers that are no longer needed.
- Manageability: Server operating systems include tools to make it easier to manage servers and applications.
