Virtual-DBA, XTIVIA’s remote database administration service, ensures optimal performance of your virtualized or cloud computing environment and saves you money. If you are considering or using a virtualized environment, why not consider virtualizing your DBA needs?
Cloud Technology Maximizes Efficiency and Saves You Money
Cloud or virtual computing technology uses the internet and central remote servers to maintain data and applications. Cloud computing allows consumers and businesses to use applications without installing them and enables access to their personal files at any computer with internet access. This technology maximizes computing efficiency by centralizing storage, memory, processing and bandwidth.
Often characterized as a pool of virtualized computer resources, businesses are leveraging of the many advantages of cloud computing including access to its enormous infrastructure without having to implement and administer it directly. Businesses recognize that virtualization enables them to better utilize resources without having to pay for additional hardware.
Virtualization allows IT departments achieve the following:
- Reduce the costs of power and cooling
- Reduce hardware utilization
- Provide high availability and security
- Improve assets utilization
Additional Benefits Make Virtualization a Smart Choice for Businesses
XTIVIA’s Virtual-DBA Service: pro-active monitoring and support of your virtualized/cloud database
Virtualization allows businesses to isolate applications from each other with a standardized hardware platform that reduces support costs and increases the share of IT resources. A virtual machine is an efficient source to boost utilization and promote consolidation. It also provides a dynamic testing environment with functions such as snapshot and rollback. Transferring the virtual machine to another physical machine is easy and it is another reason many companies implement virtualization.
