Maxis360 is helping its customers get more IT power with less by creating “virtual” versions of their operating systems, servers, storage devices or network resources. For example, experts at Maxis360 are creating multiple resources for customers from an existing single server resulting in fewer servers, less energy consumption and less maintenance.

IT staffs in many Maxis360 customer organizations are discovering that when it comes to reducing their costs, boosting efficiency and increasing productivity, virtualization techniques provided by Maxis360 are powerful tools to reduce IT expenses, boost efficiency and increase the ability to react — not just for large enterprises, but for small and midsize ones as well.

Instead of purchasing and maintaining an entire computer for one application, each application is given its own operating system, and all those operating systems can reside on a single piece of hardware. This provides the benefits of decentralization, like security and stability, while making the most of a machine’s resources.

Maxis360’s Virtualization tools enable multiple operating systems to run concurrently on a single computer by separating hardware from a single operating system. It shifts the IT focus from managing hardware to improving the services provided to the organization. For example, virtualization helps an organization’s IT staff that is managing multiple servers and desktops, realize cost and productivity gains by:

Increasing Productivity
For example, with fewer servers, less time is required for server maintenance. And by pooling many storage devices into a single virtual storage device, IT staffs perform backup, archiving and recovery faster and easier. It’s also much faster to deploy a virtual machine than it is to deploy a new physical server.

Managing and Securing Desktops
Desktop virtualization enables organizations to centrally manage desktops centrally, making it easier to keep them updated and secure.

Lowering Costs
Virtualization turns a single purpose server into a multi-tasking one, and turns multiple servers into a computing pool that adapts quickly to changing workloads.

Saving Energy
Virtualization reduces the number of physical servers, reducing the energy required to power and cool them.
