Distributed IT Infrastructures: Alternative Approaches

Cover Image

This whitepaper outlines the benefits derived and the costs associated with virtualization in the Remote Offices/Branch Offices, in the classic model versus the proposed model. The proposed model clearly wins in terms of ease of integration, skill requirements, and Total Cost of Operations. At the core this solution is based on a VMex 2008 Software that delivers greater flexibility and lowered risk by offering virtualization to Remote Offices/Branch offices (ROBO), by leveraging Microsoft Windows and Hyper-V.


VMex 2008 delivers a solution that :


  • Can centrally manage thousands of sites
  • Provides SAN-less High Availability to improve SLAs
  • Is cost effective because of server consolidation and storage pooling
  • Provides an “Instant-on” Failover Plan
  • Allows the provisioning of applications or virtual servers to any remote location in minutes, instead of days
  • Brings virtualization benefits to remote sites and permits full independence between application, OS and hardware
  • Maximizes WAN utilization
  • Is a pre-packaged Remote Offices/Branch Offices solution that reduces the cost of ever-greening


Traditional virtualization solutions for remote offices and branch offices rely upon expensive hardware, SANs, and specialized skill sets to install, configure, provision and manage. VMex 2008 enables a remote office or branch office to have all the benefits of Virtualization, at a much reduced Total Cost of Operations.
