Switch to a virtualized environment to increase business continuity while decreasing overall IT spend and risk
Storcom can help with all of your virtualization solution needs in order to achieve a seamless transition to a public, private, or hybrid cloud computing environment.
Contrary to popular belief, the definitions for “virtualization” and “cloud computing” are not synonymous. Virtualization is the software that makes computing independent of physical, on-premise infrastructure.
“Cloud computing,” on the other hand, is an on-demand service that delivers computing resources like data and software, via the internet. They are complementary IT solutions, and may used together to virtualize servers and then move resources to the Cloud for cloud computing to achieve self-service, power, and agility.

Network Virtualization Solutions
Networking virtualization with Storcom can provide many benefits. We can abstract networking resources that were traditionally delivered by hardware and change them to software thus helping you optimize your network resources and save overall IT spend. Storcom combines multiple physical networks into separate virtual networks. In doing so, your company can reap the following benefits:
Desktop Virtualization Solutions
Desktop virtualization isolates the operating system (OS) and associated application software from the client that is used to access it. Application virtualization and desktop virtualization are used in conjunction with each other in order to provide a desktop environment management system. When all of the components of the desktop are virtualized, the desktop delivery model is much more secure and flexible. Storcom can virtualize your desktop environment and your applications to ensure a smooth virtualization experience. The benefits of desktop virtualization are:
Server Virtualization Solutions
There are many benefits of performing a server virtualization with Storcom. We can help you optimize hardware resources, save energy, and other related costs that makes it possible to run multiple applications and operating systems simultaneously on the same server. We can help you increase the utilization, efficiency, and flexibility of your existing computer hardware.
Storage Virtualization Solutions
Storcom can help you reduce your hardware and resource costs by nearly 50% while improving overall reliability, performance, agility, and speed. The additional benefits of performing a storage virtualization with Storcom are:
Storcom is a subject matter expert in virtualization. On a daily basis, we implement virtualizations using the following solutions from our best-in-class partners:
VMware’s vSphere and NSX
Storcom was an early adopter of VMware technology, and we consider ourselves subject matter experts on VMware’s cloud computing and virtualization software and services. VMware was one of the first commercially successful companies to virtualize the x86 architecture. Storcom and VMware accelerate your digital transformations in ever-evolving IT environments. VMware’s virtualization platforms are viewed as some of the best in the world.
Hyper-V is virtualization software. It not only virtualizes operating systems, but it also virtualizes entire hardware components like hard drives and network switches. Unlike Fusion and Virtualbox, Hyper-V is not solely limited to a user’s device. Hyper-V can also be used for server virtualization as well.
VMs have the following characteristics:

Disadvantages of virtualization are almost non-existent when compared to the multiple advantages it offers. However, the major pitfalls of virtualization to consider are:
There are many overall advantages to virtualization, but the ones which are most notable for influencing the decision to virtualize are:
X86 servers have their limitations, so many organizations need to deploy multiple servers which only operate at a fraction of their capacity in order to keep up with today’s high storage and processing demands. As a result, this creates excessive operating costs and is largely inefficient.
Virtualization solves this problem by relying on software to simulate hardware and create a virtual machine system. This allows IT organizations to run multiple virtual systems, and multiple apps and operating systems, on a single server.
A “hypervisor” is, by definition, a thin layer of software which decouples the VM from the host and allocates computational resources to each VM when they are needed. A hypervisor is also known as a “virtual machine monitor (VMM).”
The definition of a “VM,” or “virtual machine,” in computing is a type of software, firmware, or hardware with an OS and an application inside which emulates a computer system. Each VM is completely self-contained and independent. Having multiple virtual machines on a single computer allows several operating systems and applications to run on one host (or physical server). A computer that runs multiple virtual machines is called a “host machine” and each virtual machine is known as a “guest machine.”
The virtualized hardware resources may be shared by a variety of operating systems. For example, Mac OS, Linux, and Windows can all run on a single x86 machine.
