Virtualization is a key component of Green IT and is designed to help you use your servers, storage and desktops more efficiently. Blue Forest Technologies offer virtualization solutions in each of these areas, using a variety of vendors who specialize in virtualization hardware and software.
Blue Forest Technologies implements virtualization software that facilitates server consolidation and reduces complexity throughout the data center. The software creates an optimized “virtual” data center that provides dynamic infrastructure built on industry standards and is flexible to changing business needs.
Blue Forest Technologies implements Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solutions. VDI hosts individual Windows desktop PCs inside virtual machines running on servers in the data center. This thin-client architecture enables you to secure, maintain and support your organization’s complete Windows desktop environment that can be securely accessed and maintained from anywhere.
Consolidating the delivery of applications and deployment of desktops in this manner offers the following benefits:
- Reduce the cost and complexity of managing Windows desktops
- Enable Dynamic IT with rapid provisioning and deployment of desktops and applications
- Provide a business continuity and disaster recovery framework for desktop and application availability
- Embrace Green IT by consolidating computer resources for desktops and applications (Thin clients use 50% less power than full function PC)
