Virtualization Technologies

Virtualization.. We get it.. We got involved in VMWare I believe in 1998 (it was during the beta phase). The product looked perfect, we wanted to use it.. we had dozens of test virtualized servers... and...

We were told: You can't use our product for servers, servers won't work virtualized.

Yes, VMWare, the company that virtualizes servers today.. They told us we couldn't use our licenses (we only had a few) after spending hundreds, maybe close to a thousand hours completing our proof of concept and having dozens of customers ready to roll out on our new "secret" platform.

Fast forward a decade to today.. The world finally understands virtualization DOES work.

We prefer Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 and Microsoft Hyper-V.  We run a sizable repository of Virtual Serve 2005 FAQs on our resource site  - - If you run these products in house I suggest you bookmark that page. We need to add HyperV content but before it's release we couldn't.

We have OVER 2 YEARS experience with HYPER-V and it's concepts.
How if it's new? 3 letters, NDA.

We also have some other virtualization technologies in our labs that we feel are better, but they aren't ready yet.

So what can we virtualize for you today?

 The Co-Managed Hyper-V server would be exclusively yours, we assist you as little or as much as you would like with managing the server - the entire server resources are dedicated to your needs.

Internet Connections are billed if usage is over 0.25 megabit SUSTAINED (measured using industry standard 95 percentile billing). Rates are < $100/megabit (depending on volume). Very few virtual machines are paying for bandwidth, you probably don't need to worry about this.
