CHARLOTTE, N.C. (November 19, 2007) – Peak 10, the leading independent data center operator and managed services provider, has established a leadership position in implementing, hosting and supporting virtual environments. Virtualization is a key component of Peak 10’s product offering and presents multiple advantages to the IT infrastructures of company clients and the business community as a whole.
Virtualization is modernizing data centers by offering alternative, cost-effective ways to handle high availability in the production platform and minimized recovery time objectives in disaster recovery. The service allows multiple virtual machines (VMs) to run concurrently on a single computer working as a means of separating hardware from a single operating system and guaranteeing an organization substantial consolidation of space and energy. The VMs can be provisioned in a single physical server or across multiple hosts and can be adjusted internally or moved as necessary to support maintenance windows or in true failover between servers. Peak 10 facilities fully support multiple operating systems for client outsourcing and can virtualize almost any environment to best fit client needs. Also, Peak 10 can manage a client’s dedicated virtual environment if they already own the hardware and licenses. Virtualization enables the reduction of required physical infrastructure for daily function performance while allowing critical system replication across a virtual platform.
“Virtualization is not for everybody but it needs to be part of the discussion” said Monty Blight, vice president of Managed Services at Peak 10. “Businesses who utilize virtualization typically experience greater efficiency in hardware use, higher rates of availability, reduced scheduled downtime and easier server management.”
Blight and Peak 10 thought leaders have employed various mediums to engage and educate the business community about the wide-ranging benefits of virtualization. In addition to authoring an opinion editorial, Blight moderated a virtualization webcast series earlier this year.
