The Virtualization Matter for Document and File Storage

If you still ask why virtual data rooms look like the best solution for the storage and security of your important documents and files, then you should know this. Are you currently or will invest to build a data center? Is your preferred data center the smartest nowadays? Even after when will your investment for the datacenter come back? Questions like that would surely come to light of someone who is or will build a data center infrastructure as a necessity of business today. So what technology should be applied? The answer is Virtualization. Why? To address these concerns, we have summarized several reasons why we should implement Virtual Data Centers instead of Traditional Data Centers:

Reduced Cost

The component which has the highest price in the data center is Hardware. Reducing the amount of hardware in your DC by virtualization means reducing spending by virtualizing your hardware, such as servers, routers, switches, etc. with the same performance and even other features that are very useful for availability, manageability, and security. In addition, you can also reduce the cost of electricity consumed by cooling/cooler and DC. these things you will not get if you still use traditional DC which can only run one application and OS on one server only.

Better Disaster Recovery

Disaster recovery will be very easy to do when your server is virtualized because it has advanced feature features, such as an up to date VM snapshot, so that time can go back to a state in case of a disaster. It can also move your VM to another DC in a long distance that is connected before with just a few clicks. Surely things like this would be very difficult to do with traditional DC.

Easier Migration to a cloud

With Virtualization, you get closer to cloud services because it can easily migrate your VM from private to a public cloud on demand if your existing DC virtualization is no longer able to accommodate the VM. things like this will be very difficult for traditional DCs
