Virtualization: The Business Impact

C&G Virtualization Project Success
We use virtualization technology to help our clients solve many of their growing technology demands. Virtualization allows more than one operating system to run on one physical computer. This reduces hardware costs and can improve disaster preparedness.

C&G Consulting has helped our clients successfully convert over 20 physical servers to virtual servers in the past 18 months using VMware Converter or other imaging methods. We have also helped our clients successfully install over 40 new virtual servers over the past 18 months. Virtualization has many business uses including: separating server roles, improving system performance, and upgrading software or server platforms. Our average client using virtual servers has five virtual servers for every one physical server.

Virtualization Vendors
The three major Virtualization vendors are VMware, Microsoft, and Citrix. C&G Consulting is a VMware Partner as their virtualization technology is arguably the most mature and fits our clients needs most closely. All of our virtual servers within our own network are running on VMware. We "practice what we preach."
