IT Virtualisation


The best virtualisation services for your workplace

Over the last 7 years United Business Solutions has completed over 2,000 physical to virtual machine migrations, ranging from Windows, Linux and other legacy PC Server and desktop operating systems.

Our professional service team created one of the first major corporate reference sites in Australia using IBM servers and storage. Some 6 years later this has been upgraded, demonstrating the extended investment time frame possible with a well-engineered “Best Practice” server virtualisation service project.

The capabilities United Business Solutions delivers to your workplace IT system includes:

  • Practical advice on budgeting a virtual server and desktop environment
  • Preparing the business case for financial approval
  • Working with you on a detailed deployment design prior to starting work

The starting point, we believe is capacity planning. This will outline how much of your current resources, servers, storage, networking, memory are actually required to deliver business outcomes across your complete business cycle, and to guide options for a replacement investment.

Key technical planning issues include storage, networking, backup and disaster recovery.

Virtualisation solutions for workplace or large scale servers is now a minimum standard when planning any server or storage refresh. Storage virtualisation services are the foundation on which all this capability depends. Fibre Channel and iSCSI storage arrays are the hub around which servers and networking rotates to deliver end user experiences.

Desktop IT virtualisation is the next major tough point for the virtualisation road map.


Legacy system virtualisation and other IT virtualisation services

The benefits of IT virtualisation solutions are substantial, extending the life of each desktop for up to 10 years. A Windows 7 upgrade from Windows XP becomes as simple as a few key strokes, reversing this is as simple as doing the initial deployment.

For large scale virtualisation services and desktop deployments with VMware, United Business Solutions recommends using a virtual SAN that supports Solid State Disks, to deliver the high IOPS rate required to services users as they log on and demand a PC like experience.

Unified Storage iSCSI solutions are an ideal deployment platform, offering a combination of iSCSI, Fibre Channel, 10 Gbit Ethernet, and Fibre Channel Over Ethernet, with starting process under $15,000 ex ($A).
