Each service needs to be well-managed so as to operate efficiently, independently and optimally.

IAM Networks managed services optimize information infrastructure in order to drive continuous development. Service level adherence and disciplined governance further ensure that your infrastructure technology meets business needs at a lower TCO. To make virtualization more cost efficient, it’s critical that you opt for a virtualization plan that conforms to your current business needs, while still being capable of accommodating future developments and growth. Storage virtualization is a critical component of IT virtualization. Benefits of server virtualization — such as improved utilization, flexibility, responsiveness, workload mobility and disaster recovery — can be limited if only part of the infrastructure is virtualized. Storage virtualization is also one of the foundations for effective cloud deployment and software-defined infrastructures.  Transferring your data from a physical data center to a virtual storage environment is a challenging transition for a company.

A company should consider cloud computing the delivery of shared computing resources through the Internet, cost of Capital Expenditures (CAPEX), cost of Operational Expenditures (OPEX), Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), and virtualization the foundation of cloud computing; helps deliver the value of the cloud. Virtualizing your company’s desktops drastically cuts down the costs of refreshing hardware.
